200-hour Teacher Training

200Please consult the Inner Fire Yoga Teacher Training catalogue for more information on the specific curriculums of the modules outlined below.

WEEKEND TRAINING MODULES
The weekend training modules take place over twelve weekends from October to May at a beautiful century old farm house. Each module is comprised of four weekends with 110-hours of training. Two modules can be combined to earn a 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher certification with the Yoga Alliance. Upon completion of two modules of the Weekend Training Modules (Yoga Foundations Module PLUS EITHER the Power Flow Module OR the Hot Yoga Module), participants will qualify for, and be able to apply for, a RYT certification (Registered Yoga Teacher) with the Yoga Alliance at the 200-hour level.

Yoga Foundations Module
In this module, you will learn the basic poses, pranayama and power flow sequences that comprise the Inner Fire Flow yoga class, as carefully choreographed by Inner Fire Yoga’s owner and select senior Inner Fire Yoga teachers. Inner Fire Flow is a set sequenced class (the same every time) that combines the best of Hot Yoga and Power Flow Yoga. The careful sequencing of Inner Fire Flow offer the trainee an opportunity to learn the foundational poses and power flow transitions to teach a basic yoga class. Knowing the sequence and the skills to teach these basic poses will give you the confidence and knowledge to teach a complete and sequenced basic yoga class upon completion of the Inner Fire Yoga Teacher Training Foundations Module. This module is the spring board for either the Power Flow module or the Hot Yoga module.

This module is appropriate for a person who is interested in learning more about yoga, but might not necessarily be interested in becoming a certified yoga teacher. It is appropriate for students interested in delving more deeply into the subject of yoga, including the subjects of pose alignment, history, philosophy and anatomy, but who might not necessarily interested in a 200-hour Yoga Alliance certification to teach yoga. This module will deepen a yoga student’s understanding of the foundations of yoga.

Satisfactory completion of the Yoga Foundations Module will earn the participant a 110-hour certificate of completion of the Yoga Foundations Teacher Training from Inner Fire Yoga.

Power Flow Yoga Module
The focus on this module is learning additional poses and theory of sequencing your own Power Flow class. You will learn to sequence classes with specific themes in mind, as well as to sequence classes for different levels of student experience and capabilities. This module builds on the Yoga Foundations Module. When combining the Power Flow Module with the Yoga Foundations Module, a student will have the credentials to apply for a Registered Yoga Teacher at the 200-hour level with the Yoga Alliance.

This module is appropriate for a person who has already earned a 200-hour Yoga Alliance yoga teaching certificate from another yoga school, and who would like to delve more deeply into the principles of teaching Power Flow yoga. In addition, this module is appropriate for a person interested in deepening their power flow knowledge and practice, but is not necessarily interested in a 200-hour certificate to teach yoga.
Satisfactory completion of the Power Flow Yoga Module will earn a 110-hour certificate of completion of Power Flow Yoga Teacher Training from Inner Fire Yoga. For students who complete BOTH the Yoga Foundations Module AND the Power Flow Yoga Module, a certificate of completion will be given for a 200-hour Inner Fire Yoga Teacher Training Program in accordance with the Yoga Alliance.

Hot Yoga Module
The focus on this module is to learn how to teach, using specific dialogue, the two breathing exercises and the twenty six poses that comprise the 90 minute Hot Yoga class. This module builds on the Yoga Foundations Module. When combining the Hot Yoga Module with the Yoga Foundations Module, a student will have the credentials to apply for a Registered Yoga Teacher at the 200-hour level with the Yoga Alliance.

This module is a great module for a student who has already earned another yoga teaching certificate from another school, and who would like to learn to teach Hot Yoga. In addition, this module is a great learning opportunity for anyone who would like to deepen their Hot Yoga knowledge and practice, but are not necessarily interested in teaching Hot Yoga.

Satisfactory completion of the Hot Yoga Module will earn a 110-hour certificate of completion of the Hot Yoga Teacher Training from Inner Fire Yoga. For students who complete BOTH the Yoga Foundations Module AND the Hot Yoga Module, a certificate of completion will be given for the 200 hour Inner Fire Yoga Teacher Training Program in accordance with the Yoga Alliance.
