10 Reasons For Yoga Wheel TT

by | Aug 8, 2018 | Teacher Training, Yoga

Your 200 hour YTT was probably life changing, right? But you also, probably learned that that was just the tip of the iceberg, right?

The yoga journey never ends, and there is always more to learn and explore. The Shakti Yoga Wheel® is a unique tool that combines alignment principles, mental strength, and spiritual practice.  It is one of the most versatile inventions for our yoga practice as it helps both beginners and advanced students’ progress in their practice easily and healthily.  Oh, and did I mention it also happens to be fun and feel great on the body!  With so many options for more training, we think this Shakti Yoga Wheel® Teacher Training adds unique and valuable skill to your teaching repertoire.

Here are the top 10 reasons why we think you should take the Shakti Yoga Wheel™ teacher training.

  1. Explore Your Body in a Different Way  Throughout your Shakti Yoga Wheel® teacher training, you will feel and explore your body in familiar asanas but in a totally new way. By doing so, we are going to dive deeply into atomizing postures and look into how your body is expressing them.You will learn so much about your unique physiology in this training, which will give you a lot of variety in your yoga practice. This training will take you deeper into the understanding of what your body can do, and what adjustments you can make for yourself to find more ease, health or even challenge in your practice.
  2. Find Your Way Back To Natural Alignment  Here is what one of our students said after she joined the teacher training in 2016.“In 20 hours training, I felt transformed. The approach is stunningly simple and confers immediate results for my students and me. I wholeheartedly endorse this program” ~ Kelsey Cusack, Studio Owner YogaSol, AlaskaThrough your own experience in this training, you can heal, transform and learn how to keep yourself pain-free while sitting, standing, walking and practicing your beloved asana practice. The Shakti Yoga Wheel® method will also give you an additional tool to teach and coach your students healthily.
  3. Learn A Unique Method That Allows You To Teach Differently  Our vision of what makes a yoga practice healthy will amaze you because the approach might be very different from what you have learned.

A comprehensive teacher manual gives enough material to teach from the very first day.
  5. Reveal New Strength  In your Shakti Yoga Wheel® yoga teacher training, you will be challenged; your ability to be aware of your postures might change because of alignment matters even more. Recognizing that everything in your body is interconnected. Also with this method, your breathing will be your highway to your brain and mental health to reduce stress, increase energy, so you will not only feel physically stronger, but mentally & emotionally as well.
  6.

You will learn in-depth therapeutic training methods to improve mobility, flexibility, posture, and performance to help you progressively remodel your body from inside out. Very likely that you will come out of this training expressing posture you never imagine you would be able to.
  7. Creative Mental Stimulation  Using a Yoga Wheel in your practice and teaching with it gives your brain and the students brain a workout. Teaching can become routine and repetitive. Challenging your brain is stimulating and refreshing and will help you find new inspiration in your teaching.
