26&2 Bikram Teacher Training Immersion
The Hot Yoga Spot in Saratoga. Begins February 2022.
The Hot Yoga Spot's 60 hour 26&2 Bikram Teacher Training Immersion is designed to hold space from a trauma-informed perspective to give students the tools to teach using the traditional Bikram Yoga Dialogue. Through Dialogue study, practice teaching and timing, posture clinics, philosophy, anatomy, and physiology lectures, and study of the 13 Key Concepts, demonstrations, corrections, understanding and using the energy in the room, the pregnancy series, and teaching to limited/injured bodies, students will learn how to both teach and practice in a compassionate and supportive way. This training aims to lead teachers and students to be able to guide students in a way that is accessible to people suffering from chronic illness, pain, limited mobility, obesity, trauma, and PTSD, but is also challenging enough for athletes and experienced yoga practitioners.
