ABOUT THE TRAINING

Are you a yoga teacher in need a healthy dose of inspiration? Join our founder Celeste Cusumano, and senior teacher Meagan Woods, for two immersive days of creative sequencing. Must be at least 200hr certified to join!

 

Teaching yoga is an expression of art in real time. Sometimes, as artists, we might get a creative block! Creativity takes a certain amount of effort, dedication, and immersion. We're here to help! This training is for those looking level up their classes and get their creative juices flowing. 

You do not have to be an Asana Soul Practice graduate to join this training, and this is not a "bridge" program to inform you of our sequencing structure! This is truly a weekend built to re-invigorate the yoga teacher that you already are. You'll add new tools to your toolbelt, and leave feeling equipped to integrate fresh flows into your vinyasa yoga classes. If you feel like you've been teaching the same 20 yoga poses, we'll also be covering some more unique poses, transitions, and variations, to challenge yourself and your students. This training will also demonstrate how creative sequencing can apply to all levels and all demographics so you can continue to serve your community best. 

 

By the end of the immersion you’ll have a pocketful of new tools to help you not only teach more skillfully, but to live more skillfully as well. Come if you are feeling stuck, come if you need inspiration, come if you like artful yoga sequencing, and come to connect with other experienced yoga teachers!
