Elemental Yoga 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Program 2017
In the Elemental Yoga 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training, we comprehensively cover the practices of Classical Ashtanga Yoga as inspired by Baba Hari Dass of the Mount Madonna Center. This includes asana, pranayama, meditation, mantra, mudra, shat karma, the yoga sutras and the Bhagavad Gita. We teach the subtle body and how to integrate awareness of the chakras, vayus and nadis within Yoga asana, pranayama, and meditation.
We study and practice asana to the degree that every student in the Yoga teacher training is confident practicing the core poses correctly and leading their future students with ease. Each teacher will have ample opportunities to teach within the program thus aiding them to find their voice and begin developing their style of teaching. Students will learn a set of thirty core postures. Within the study of these core postures we will cover alignment, anatomy, benefits, modifications, contraindications, sequencing, and cueing for each pose. These thirty core poses function as a bridge to all Yoga poses. As the student understands the basic principles of anatomy and alignment for one foundational pose, they will become competent in teaching all poses from the same family, i.e. backbends, forward bends, inversions, twisting.
In this Yoga Teacher Training Program, we study the Yoga Sutras and the Bhagavad Gita in depth using commentary from Baba Hari Dass, Paramahansa Yogananda, and Ecknath Easwaran. Students will learn about the integration of yoga philosophy with modern psychology. We are traditional in what we teach and modern in how we teach. We take pride in the teachers that graduate from the Elemental Yoga Teacher Training Program. Not only will your experience will be filled with a comprehensive methodology for physical and mental health, you will be given the space, tools and opportunity to integrate and teach each aspect of what you are learning. Your experience will be personally transformative, practical and comprehensive.
"Life changing. This is the only way I can describe my yoga teacher training experience with Brynn Byrne. Not only did I learn the fundamentals of teaching yoga, but I also delved deeper into myself and gained a greater understanding of who I am at my core. Throughout this transformational experience, Brynn gently and gracefully created a supportive container to guide students through the program. Brynn’s dedication to the practice of yoga and her passion for sharing this practice with others shines through in all that she does. Her depth of knowledge about yoga philosophy paired with her years of experience teaching and practicing yoga make her an exceptional teacher who engages the mind, body, and spirit of every student she teaches. Taking this teacher training was one of the best decisions of my life and I am forever grateful that I gave myself this opportunity."
-Mel Navarro, LMSW RYT, Sr. Project Coordinator at MHMR of Tarrant County
"I chose to participate in a 200 hour yoga teacher training led by Brynn Byrne on a whim. It turned out to be one of the best decisions I could have ever made. I expected to learn some great yoga sequences, breathing techniques, and become more physically fit. I did not realize that the training would also transform my life, leading me down an exciting spiritual path of true self discovery. Since the yoga teacher training, my life is more joyful and fulfilling than ever before. Brynn's expert and loving teachings on the Yoga Sutras, Bhagavad Gita, and Yoga philosophy inspired and guided my personal transformation. I highly recommend Brynn's yoga teacher training to anyone who is looking for a more fulfilling life."
-Liz Dansby, RN, LMT
"Brynn's level of understanding and experience with yoga is unparalleled to any teacher I have known in Fort Worth. She models integrity and the heart of the teachings in all that she does. Her teaching style is patient, thorough and methodical. In the teacher training, I made life-long friends and profoundly deepened bonds with people I had already known in my life. I have never felt so content, healthy and empowered as I felt during the 6 months of the training. Not only did we gain a deep level of understanding yogic postures, proper alignment, breath technique, and how to build inner strength, the training offers a high level of spiritual teaching as well. Both the physical and spiritual teachings given in this training are provided with a level of excellence that is only possible with an expert teacher, with thousands of hours of careful practice and study. This is Brynn. Of the multitude of training opportunities in the Metroplex, Elemental Yoga's Teacher Training would be my first choice over and over again because of the depth of Brynn's knowledge and ability to teach with clarity, precision and excellence. She teaches yoga as a science of the body, mind and spirit. Other outstanding benefits of the Elemental Yoga Teacher training are the opportunities for continued education, apprenticeship, employment possibilities and sustainable spiritual community. You will always have peers along side you, collaborating and working together as friends and fellow students. I give this training an A+ and recommend it to anyone desiring to study yoga as a science that can be practiced as a lifestyle for sustainable right-action, personal fulfillment, and service to the world."
-Analiese Hill, Entrepreneur
"If you are seeking an authentic experience in the study of yoga, look no further than a training with Brynn Byrne. Her extensive background as student of Baba Hari Dass has given her a depth of ancient knowledge that she is joyful in sharing. The traditional approach she takes to instructing yoga preserves the Eastern practice; however, her modern sensibility on spreading this movement to the modern world makes her teachings relevant and practical to the Western world. Despite the wealth of information received, my favorite element of going through the training were the relationships that develop around the process. Seeing the value of growing spiritual community, Brynn creates the opportunity for her students to bond together with each other, her studio, and the Fort Worth community as a whole. In this way, students walk away with not only a confident ability to lead an ancient practice but an immense amount of support in their journey as a new teacher."
