PRIMAL YOGA® TEACHER TRAINING OVERVIEW
Primal Yoga® is a dynamic yoga and martial arts fusion style that merges Vinyasa yoga with the artistry of Kung Fu and the grace of Tai Chi into an athletic, heat-building flow, while focusing on alignment, balance, strength, power and flexibility. Primal Yoga® FLOW and Primal Yoga® POWER are two distinct class offerings designed to balance yin and yang energies.
Primal Yoga® FLOW and Primal Yoga® POWER are offered as two separate 10-day Teacher Training Certification programs. One is not a pre-requisite for the other. Eligible applicants may choose to take one program as a stand-alone or both in any order. However, you will only be certified to teach the individual program that you successfully complete. By submitting an application below, you are applying for the Primal Yoga® FLOW program.
WHAT IS PRIMAL YOGA® FLOW?
Primal Yoga® FLOW is a fluid and thoughtfully sequenced class that combines movement and breath to cultivate the flow of Qi and pranic energy throughout the body. We seamlessly blend yoga with slow flowing movements inspired by Taiji, Qi Gong and Kung Fu into a harmonious dance to create balance, strength and synergy in our physical and emotional bodies. With an emphasis on breath, fluidity and intelligent alignment-based sequencing, Primal Yoga® FLOW taps into our body’s own innate wisdom to unlock the healing potential within. We build internal heat and challenge the body by moving fluidly and mindfully with the breath. Think of it as meditation in motion. Primal Yoga® FLOW classes are designed to be yoga-studio friendly and offer teachers the unique opportunity to stand out in a crowded yoga market.
PRIMAL YOGA® FLOW TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAM OVERVIEW
In our Primal Yoga® FLOW Teacher Training Program, yoga and martial arts serve as the foundation for the exploration and cultivation of our animating life force (known as Qi or Prana). We seamlessly combine these two ancient art forms together to create an intelligent system of movement and mindfulness that enhances the way you move, the way you feel, and the way you live. This program is designed for certified yoga teachers who are interested in moving beyond static yoga postures and elevating their teaching to a new level of inspiration, artistry, and innovation.
