LEVEL FIVE: Unification

Level Five brings together all that you’ve learned in your YogaFit 200‐hour teacher training, and shifts the emphasis from external accomplishments to internal growth. Applying the powerful practice of staying in the present moment, an integral tenet of the essence of YogaFit, this two‐day intensive may be the end of your official teacher training, but it’s just the beginning of your journey inward toward true integration.

Note: All participants are required to complete the Brief Strengths Test, authentichappiness.org, print individual results, and bring these results to the training.

Yoga for Upper and Lower Extremities

The upper and lower body extremities—shoulders, elbows and wrists, hips, knees, ankles and feet—are particularly susceptible to sports and over-use injuries. With its emphasis on integrating the latest medical treatments with therapeutic-oriented yoga techniques, this two­-day intensive provides yoga teachers, physical therapists, and personal trainers with a multi-faceted toolkit to help their clients manage and prevent acute and chronic injuries. 

Note: This course requires the completion of a post-­training project, in which you are asked to research a specific upper or lower extremity pathology. Project accounts for 6 no-­contact hours toward your YogaFit HealthCare certification.

YogaFit for Injury Prevention and Recovery

YogaFit for Injury Prevention and Recovery

No one likes to get injured. But for an athlete, an injury can constitute a major setback and even hinder or end a professional career. Unfortunately, once an injury does occur, the likelihood of recurrence or additional problems increases. With its dual focus on recovery and prevention, this two­-day intensive shows you how to help athletes return to their game post-­injury and, perhaps more important, help them prevent injuries in the first place so they can stay in the game. Ideal for sports professionals who work with athletes—yoga teachers, personal trainers, physiotherapists, and strength and conditioning coaches.

YogaFit for WarriorKids (Childhood Trauma)

InfoAdd
YogaFit for WarriorKids (Childhood Trauma)

With a focus on “developmental trauma disorder,” a new and vastly expanded tool for understanding early childhood trauma, this special therapeutically oriented workshop centers on the unique way a child’s nervous system and brain respond to traumatic events, including chronic emotional and physical abuse and neglect. We will address somatic gaps in current therapies available and the challenges inherent in treating children suffering from PTSD.  

Note: YogaFit for WarriorKids counts as an elective for either the 200-­hour or the 300-­hour training, but not both. This two-­day workshop also counts toward YogaFit’s 100-­hour and 140­-hour YogaFit for Warriors certification; the 100-­hour YogaFit for WarriorKids certification; and YogaFit’s 900­-hour YogaFit HealthCare certification.

YogaFit Yin Yoga

YogaFit’s two day Yin Yoga training focuses on the other areas of our body often not considered in most yoga practices or fitness modalities. We are focused on the deeper tissues of our body: bones, joints, fascia and ligaments.  All of our tissues are important and need to be exercised so that we can achieve optimal health and vitality.  Throughout the training, we consistently work on surrendering to the pose, finding a sense of comfort through discomfort, learning to celebrate the stillness, while connecting with mindfulness.
