September 28, 2019–March 1, 2020
The Lighting the Path Teacher Training program is a life-changing course of study for dedicated yoga students and aspiring teachers.
Lighting the Path Teacher Training prepares you to be an authentic and heart-centered yoga teacher, offering compassionate and accessible vinyasa classes for all levels of students.
Vigorous morning yoga intensives guide you deeper into your own practice and life purpose, while afternoon instructional sessions cover an extensive yoga teacher curriculum, including cueing, sequencing, hands-on assists, working with injuries, demonstration techniques, vocal presence, yoga philosophy and history, the business of yoga, ethics, and anatomy.
The LTP program includes a variety of teaching methods so that you can learn, practice and embody the material. This includes demonstration, lecture, talking circles, group processes, and partner practice. You will receive personalized attention, guidance, and feedback directly from Pete Guinosso and his highly qualified assisting staff and senior guest faculty.
Process work helps you to connect to your own heart’s wisdom and find your authentic voice as a teacher. Deep connection with the community of trainees and trainers gives you the support you need during and after the training to be successful in establishing yourself as a teacher and throughout your yoga career.
LTP trainees begin teaching on day one, initially teaching to other students and gradually building up to teach a group public class under Pete’s guidance. The program’s teaching focus helps trainees become adaptable and knowledgeable teachers for a wide variety of students.
This training is ideal for serious students of yoga and aspiring teachers, as well as current yoga teachers looking to add additional skills to their teaching.
Upon completion of this training, you are eligible to register with Yoga Alliance as an RYT-200 teacher. You will also be able to enroll in Lighting the Path’s 300-hour teacher training course and/or the LTP mentorship program.
Over the course of six months, you will learn how to:
• Inspire students by teaching from your own heart’s wisdom
• Be emotionally intelligent and present with your students
• Effectively sequence for, and safely adjust, an all-levels class
• Incorporate themes and intentions into your teaching and practice
• Cue and instruct so your students stay present in their practice
• Feel confident working with common conditions and injuries
• Create a supportive and caring environment in your classes
