YogaQuest teacher training description:
YogaQuest presents a 200 hour yoga teacher training unlike any other. In addition to discussion of traditional yogic concepts, YQ takes ample time deconstructing modern yoga culture, teaching variations for different body types and abilities, and building classes concentrating on yoga for depression, anxiety and trauma sensitivity. All of that would be enough to make YQ stand out from other YTT offerings, but YQ has one additional unique benefit. YogaQuest focuses training on how to incorporate our trademarked (pending) teaching style: Yogiography™. Using narratives to change the traditional yogic narrative. This upcoming training will be the first time that YQ will certify teachers in this unique modality.
More information on the Yogiography™ technique:
“May the Force be with you.” Would you ever consider ending a class with this quote? For some, these words resonate on a much deeper level than “namaste,” enabling them to tap into cultural, as well as a personal, experiences. By knowing your audience and changing your language to match your students’ experience, you strengthen the bond with your student. This re-languaging allows your student to realize that there is a place for them in yoga. Whether ancient archetypes or modern myths, narratives are a powerful link both between and within people.
Join Justine Mastin, MA, LAMFT, LADC, E-RYT 200 (aka JustiniYogini) to explore the narratives that resonate for your students. Learn how to expertly intertwine narrative with your yoga teaching. Pulling predominantly from the modern mythologies of pop culture, Mastin discusses ways to choose language authentic to your students. By using your students’ narratives in class, you invite them to view yoga as a seamless integration of their lives. Learn to speak the narrative language of your students and watch them come alive!
