Meditation Teacher Training - Level 1
This is a training for yoga teachers or experienced meditators who wish to share the practice with others. I have lovingly crafted a powerful and content-rich training based on my 20 year yoga practice, personal meditation practice and experience teaching weekly meditation classes and workshops. I bring insights from my intense study of philosophy, independent study of various meditation traditions, and my 2 certifications with Deepak Chopra at the Chopra Center in Carlsbad, CA.
This training will equip you with the knowledge and skills to be able to teach and share the powerful healing practice of meditation with others in a one-on-one or class setting. You will be able to help people shift into more peaceful, creative, intuitive and happy states of being through the practice.
The training will expose you to different meditation techniques, with a strong focus on Yoga’s Vedic traditions that utilize mantra meditation. You will also be introduced to other styles of mindfulness practices and concepts that have roots in Buddhism. The training will cultivate your ability to:
lead a group in meditation
communicate about meditation
articulate the health benefits of meditation
use Sanskrit and English mantras
field questions and guide students
draw on the tools of practice (e.g. breathwork, mantra, yantra, essential oils, mala, sound)
cultivate a personal presence to support your teaching
deepen and solidify your personal meditation practice
In the 2-3 months prior to the training, it is strongly recommended that you have a regular meditation practice and set the intention for daily meditation leading up to the training weekend. A reading list will be supplied in advance. Contact me for more information on curriculum and practicum.
