Body Mindful Yoga Teacher Training

with Bob Butera PhD, E-RYT500, C-IAYT & Jennifer Kreatsoulas, PhD, E-RYT-500 & C-IAYT

January 19-20, 2019

Yoga professionals have the privilege of guiding students through movement experiences and the responsibility of creating safe spaces for this body exploration to unfold. In an age of unreasonable beauty ideals, selfies, “before and after” photos, fad diets, “Thinspiration,” and a high prevalence of eating disorders, it’s essential we are sensitive to the possibility that our students and clients have body image concerns in their lives, potentially making movement an uneasy experience.

By learning how to teach “body mindfully,” or integrate body affirming language into your cueing, themes, and messaging, you will help every individual leave Yoga classes and private sessions feeling safe, supported, and uplifted throughout their personal journeys. 

In this training, focused on how to Create Self-Connection with Body Affirming Language, you will:

  • Explore language that affirms all bodies and abilities to increase positive connection and appreciations for one’s body
  • Learn how to recognize and transform potentially problematic language into body affirming language
  • Receive education on body image
  • Experience a variety of Body Mindful Yoga practices
  • Build a “Body Mindful Yoga” vocabulary for cultivating emotional safety and trust with students and clients
  • Practice teaching new skills, cues, and themes
  • Connect with a supportive Body Mindful Yoga Teacher network

Schedule: Saturday 9-5pm, Sunday 9-5pm

Fees: $350 Pre-Registered before Dec 19th, $375 after Dec 19th

CEUS: Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Credits Available
