Yoga Teacher Trainings

Some of the most enjoyable and important services I provide are modules for Yoga Teacher Training that are intended to familiarize future yoga teachers with subjects that I specialize in: Sanskrit pronunciation, mantra meditation, bhakti yoga, etc. I think that it makes a huge difference when upcoming generations of teachers have a chance to experience these practices which make up part of the much wider realm of yoga, beyond the asana, pranayama and Yoga Sutras lessons that are standard in most trainings. Each of the modules below can be taught as a 3 hour program, allowing for a comprehensive introduction that gives the students a foundation from which to continue their own research and practice.

YTT programs are billed at the standard rate for guest teachers: $100 per hour. If you would like to hire me to add one (or more!) of these modules into your YTT program, please contact me at ib@ianboccio.com, or (404) 401-0060.

Sanskrit

This module is the most often requested, since Yoga Alliance has specific requirements for learning correct pronunciation. We will learn how to say the letters of the Sanskrit alphabet exactly the way I was taught by Vyaas Houston from the American Sanskrit Institute, including tongue positions, aspirated consonants, and a few of the sandhi rules that yoga teachers will commonly encounter. We will practice our proper pronunciation by looking at and taking apart a variety of asana names, focusing on strategies for how the students can work out the pronunciations for themselves in the future. Beyond the practical aspects, we will spend a good amount of time talking about what Sanskrit is and why it is such an important foundation for all yoga practices.
