Advanced Yoga Studies of New York at Good Ground Yoga

with Erica Mather and Leslie Pearlman

• Are you a Forrest Yoga teacher hungry for ongoing training?
• Are you a yoga teacher from another lineage with a love for Forrest Yoga and want to learn more?
• Are you a yoga practitioner, not looking to teach, but longing to go further in your studies?

Introducing the Advanced Yoga Studies of New York, a year long “module based” 300 hour training for teachers and practitioners looking to advance their yoga practice, teaching skills and love for yoga. Even if you don’t intend to teach yoga, you will discover that many of the skills great  yoga teachers acquire are also useful in other areas in life (in personal and professional relationships for example). In other words, this Advanced Studies course is for anyone looking to learn more about themselves both on and off the yoga mat.

The Schedule:

Each day begins with an intermediate/advanced yoga intensive so you can practice at your level as a teacher.
Each afternoon is dedicated to instruction, discussion, hands on teaching skills, practice teaching, feedback and more.

The Experience:

Advanced Studies Modules are, above all, opportunities for you to focus on your personal growth. Because yoga at its core is a technique for self study, you will discover that these modules will give you greater insight and clarity not only into your teaching but in in your life as well. How? Lead teachers Leslie and Erica will mentor you to look deeper into all the areas of your life. This is the beauty of this program. You are coached how to up level all aspects of your practice— be it in your teaching, in your life, the choices you make, the work you do, the relationships you cultivate and most importantly, in how you come to terms with your own Dharma.
