All students are welcome to attend this very special training. Mirka will work with students using the technology of yoga to open to new spectrums of themselves. She will encourage students with personalized tools for self-transformation, giving them a way to embark on and deepen personal practice.
We will be starting The Art of Personal Practice as an immersion-style training in January of 2016. This is open to all students, and will serve as a 100hr. lead-in to students who want to complete a 200hr. Teacher Training. Upon completion of the APP, teacher trainers will go on to the next level of training to start July of 2016. See schedule below:
Viniyoga practice is designed for each person's unique body and mind. Students will be mentored by Mirka to understand yoga deeply. Her focus on this portion of the training will be to support the trainers to teach yoga powerfully, to embody the precepts of yoga in their lives. This will be an intimate immersion for those who want to develop into caring, effective teachers. The Art of Personal Practice is a pre-requisite for this training.
This format is designed to set the stage for students to generate a deeper, more sensitized understanding of exploring yoga for well-being.
By dividing the longer term training into 2 modules, we have aimed to provide a practice-based focus in the Art of Personal Practice, and a teaching practicum in the 2nd module. The Art of Personal Practice is open to all students, and those who will join as teacher trainers will have special assignments and assisting time in the training. They will accumulate extra hrs., completing a 100hr. portion by May of 2016.
Then, teacher trainers will start up again in late July 2016, and go another 6 months to complete a 200hr. teacher training. This portion allows time for practice and integration, so that students are ready for the next wave of learning and can most fully benefit from Mirka's inspired teaching.

This course will give students a comprehensive base in the principles of B.K.S. Iyengar's method of yoga and fully prepare them to enter Level I classes at Westside Yoga Studio. The Iyengar method of yoga is an absolutely excellent base for students new to yoga, as it is based on several principles that methodically build integrity into the student from the very first class.
B.K.S. Iyengar's work has completely permeated the world of modern yoga, and it would be next to impossible to take a yoga class anywhere without Iyengar's influence showing up at some point.
By taking an entire Introductory Course in Iyengar Yoga, a student is assured of coming into this practice with a foundation that is strong, clear and forged in a wealth of practical experience. Check the Iyengar Yoga page for more details...
