There is immense power in the chill. There is a science and art to learning and teaching it. This series is the first of its kind in Atlanta. It is designed to specifically nourish the whole being of a yoga teacher as well as to be an introductory training/immersion in four elements of yoga that define chill: meditation, yoga nidra, restorative, and yin yoga.
Each module will include the opportunity for teachers to be nourished and immersed in the practice as a student first. Teachers will leave with clear ways to cultivate a home practice. Additionally, expect to walk away from each module ready to incorporate into flow classes or teach as a stand-alone class.
This is part of our CEU program, designed to give teachers who currently hold a 200/500 certification additional tools to create chill space for self and students.
