WE TRAIN HARD
Y7 Studio’s Continuing Education Program is designed for both yoga teachers and yoga practitioners who are looking to deepen their knowledge of yoga and/or take their teaching to the next level. The offerings have been thoughtfully curated for 200-hour Registered Yoga Teachers who may complete courses which add up to a 300-hour Advanced Yoga Teaching Certification. Courses may also be taken as Continued Education for your toolbox. There is no time limit to complete your 300-hour program through Y7’s Continuing Education so participants can work at their own pace.
Some courses are open to practitioners looking to expand their practice and knowledge, no prior certification required.
This program is curated to meet Yoga Alliance 300-hour standards. The program is an expansion on understanding and honoring the lineage of the Yoga Practice supported by The Eight Limb Yoga Path: Patanjali Yoga Sutras, Bhagavad Gita, Intelligent Sequencing, Social Equity and Yoga, Energy Subtle Body, and expanded offerings. Our dynamic teacher training team and supporting guest teachers have co-created offerings that meet you where you are and will guide you to broaden your lens, deepen your practice, explore your unique teaching voice, and develop a strong community. These programs are designed for you to create your own path to 300-hour Advanced Yoga Teaching Certification. Select programs are open for all practitioners choosing to deepen their practice as a stand alone course.
INTRODUCTION TO TRAUMA INFORMED YOGA
November 14 – November 19
Y7’s Trauma Informed Teaching course will explore how the effects of shock, complex trauma, cultural, systemic, and institutionalized experiences can show up in the human body. During this training you will learn how to teach using accessible language, inclusive cuing, and explore equity within teaching, all increasing the access to the benefits of yoga. Yoga can ignite our ability to cope with trauma, tapping into our inner resilience, growth and healing.
This course is a great tool for anyone interested in offering a more trauma informed approach to teaching, working with communities with trauma, or are looking to integrate basic mindfulness practices in your professional or personal life.
November 21 – December 19
Y7’s Mentorship Program focuses on real world teaching experience, breaking out of your comfort zone and stepping into the role of yoga teacher. During our six week Mentorship Program, you will be encouraged to move away from any self-limiting beliefs around teaching yoga and to move toward tackling any obstacles that are preventing you from being the best teacher you can be.
EMBODIED PRENATAL YOGA: THE ART OF HOLDING AND CREATING SPACE
December 5 – December 11
Y7’s Embodied Prenatal Yoga course is a foundational approach to understanding prenatal yoga through the viewpoint of a birthworker. Through this perspective you will learn about traditional birthwork practices and teachings of India, West Africa, Cuba, Mexico, and China and how it can be worked into our modern prenatal and birth practices. This course will encompass inclusive and affirming language, understanding how to teach prenatal bodies, and how to create unique and efficient offerings in person and virtually.
Explore ways to fly. This inversion immersion is open to all levels of students and teachers, and will develop the foundational tools to explore arm balances and inversions. The course will give you the opportunity to incorporate inversions into your practice, class offerings, and enhance your teaching skills.
Inspired Sequencing is an expansive module open for all levels of students and teachers seeking to activate their creativity for inspiring, accessible, and thoughtfully developed sequencing. During this course you will learn everything from foundational sequencing to crafting sequencing and classes that storytell through music, myths of asana, and movement.
INTRODUCTION TO AYURVEDA
Dive into an exploration of the science of Ayurveda. This course will teach the foundations of Ayurveda to apply in everyday life. We will explore the personal asana practice, cooking, and rituals. We are excited to welcome Seema Johari and Anushree Johari from the Johari House in Haridwar, India for interactive Ayurvedic theory and cooking experience.
300-HOUR TRANSFER PROGRAM
Y7’s 300-Hour RYT Transfer Program is a program designed to support Yoga Teachers that have started their Continuing Education studies in a yoga program that has since closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Our 300-hour program is recognized by the Yoga Alliance and accepts students that are interested in completing their 300 hours with Y7 Studio. This is a dynamic program that allows you to create your own path at your own pace with our wide range of offerings available. We require you to complete at least 150 hours through our programs. All transfer hours must be verified and approved by our teacher training team. We have been working closely with Yoga Alliance and will provide appropriate steps and resources to complete your 300-Hour RYT certification. Upon completing the 300 hours, candidates will be required to complete a practicum and final exam. Y7 Studio will provide a 300-Hour RYT certification under the direction of Amanda Gloria Valdes, 500-Hour E-RYT and Molly Rice, 300-Hour RYT.
