On a cold December afternoon (yes, even in San Diego there is winter!) our Teacher Training group met to complete their course work with a final exam. In order to become registered as a Yoga Instructor through Yoga Alliance, there is a specific syllabus involving practical, theoretical, and philosophical criteria. In the past 7 months our group has logged 200 hours of training in the teaching of asana as fitness and therapy, in studying the necessary philosophical and theoretical foundations of yoga, and participating in related studies such as Ayurveda and Anatomy.
The photos show the practical teaching portion as well as the written Q&A and essay examinations. I am happy to report that all the candidates did exceptionally well in their exams! Please excuse the poor lighting in the photos. Stay tuned for graduation!
