ABOVE AVERAGE YOGA 200HR YOGA TEACHER TRAINING
What Sets us Apart?!
- A collective of instructors: Above Average Yoga has partnered with some of the best teachers in the local market to bring you a well rounded, experience. This will allow you to form your own thoughts and opinions around several philosophical topics as well as getting the best teachings from people that specialize in their field.
3. Many perspectives. Because we are operating as a collective teaching unit, unique gifts and talents will be brought forward to you! Al of the teachers will live in different bodies, come from different backgrounds and have taken different trainings. This brings about a unique experience of well rounded education.
4. Functional Anatomy training. The anatomy training will not be endless lecture. It will be learning about a part of the body and then moving that part of the body. This will allow you to experience the anatomy of your own body and understand how the body actually works. Rather then just reading about it in a text book.
Over the course of our 200 hour training we will cover a variety of topics and information. All of which falls under the requirements set out by the Yoga Alliance as well as offers a unique approach to the modern world of yoga.
Our curriculum will include, but is not limited to:
Asana (physical postures)
Various meditation techniques and how to teach meditation
Communication skills required for being a successful yoga teacher
Teaching Methodology, who to teach, time management etc
How to address the specific needs of individuals and special populations such as Chair Yoga

And so much more!
When I was looking into taking my Yoga Teacher Certification I looked at the schedule and couldn’t begin to think of how I was going to manage it. I put it down and walked away, feeling like there was no hope in attending. But then I realized that is was totally going to be worth it in the end and I asked for help from my community and made it happen! It was a huge stretch for me, a LEAP out of my comfort zone, but having that faith and taking that step has helped me to blossom and grow in ways I never thought possible. Yes, it might mean sacrificing what your current normal looks like to create a new normal, but your future self will thank you for!- Trista Davis
