The Conscious Alignment program is a unique program for yoga teachers wishing to expand their knowledge and teaching experience, to explore the possibilities of offering effective hand-on support, and to empower their students to make the right decisions for their own bodies and practice. Through this intimate training program, participants will have the opportunity to grow both as a teacher and as a student under the guidance of some of the most knowledgeable and experienced yoga trainers and mentors in the field.

Typically, in 200-hour yoga teacher training programs, the focus is on covering the most basic assists for common poses. In the Conscious Alignment program we will build off of the basics of assisting, introduce a deeper understanding of the body, and integrate a more in-depth review of assisting from the foundations of the Swastha Methodology that support and assist each other into our most optimal alignment. The Conscious Alignment program is ideal for yoga teachers looking to:

  • Learn real skills for safe, effective hands-on assisting and basic anatomy for assisting purposes

  • Teach and understand how to appropriately assist a variety of bodies in a group setting

  • Generate a new understanding and perspective of the poses by learning more advanced physical assists and by incorporating Swastha Methodology

  • Expand your knowledge and experience assisting your students in the Swastha principles of alignment

  • Have a practical hands-on experience, with constructive and personal feedback on your assists and touch from a member of the teaching team, as well as from your peers, during practices

  • Expand and ignite your own asana practice

  • Be of service and contribute to others

Maximum # of participants accepted into the program: 4 (four)

The Conscious Alignment Program runs congruently with our Swastha Yoga International 200-hour yoga teacher training programs which creates an expanded platform for learning through shared participation in discussions, observation of the asana practices, teaching and partnering with a diverse group of individuals and bodies. Our teacher training students range from those desiring to deepen their personal practice and gain greater vitality, flexibility and strength in all aspects of life, to those committed to becoming yoga teachers and seeking a broader range of perspective and capability in working with diverse populations. This mix provides a rich and unique learning community to work with - the perfect environment for growing yourself and for creating your next expression in the world.

Conscious Alignment is an intensive program and hands-on process which requires full commitment and presence. Your days will be balanced between asana practice, learning alignment principles, giving and receiving assists, teaching, discussions and exercises. We will also have a significant focus on physical alignment, promoting alignment both in your own body and that of your students. As a participant in this program, your effort and impact are vital to creating an environment where conscious integrated learning may take place. To support this, we are committed to:

  1. Delivering a powerful training experience that facilitates your development as a yoga teacher and evolution as a human being

  2. Offering a supportive structure and environment aligned with our values

  3. Creating an intimate experience by accepting only 4 participants into the Conscious Alignment program
