Here's how to get started
One of the things that makes Empath Yoga so UNIQUE is the 12 Weeks to LOVE YOUR LIFE Life Coaching Program it was built upon.
It’s a life-changing program that sets your feet on a new and ever-evolving, expanding path.
Live your life from a place of heightened awareness and CONFIDENCE.
While Empath Yoga goes so much deeper than a mere physical practice, the postures (asanas) and all other aspects of the physical practice, are explored in depth.
But we don’t stop there.
Each asana has a mental, emotional and spiritual benefit that is often overlooked. Emphasis is given to the Chakras (energy centers) and how to use them as a system for HEALTH and WELLNESS on ALL levels.
Another piece which is unique to Empath Yoga is the strong emphasis and training in GUIDED IMAGERY and VISUALIZATION techniques. As a Certified Hypnotherapist, Erica shows you how to offer yourself and others benefits that go so much DEEPER than most yoga trainings.
Yes. While the 12-Weeks to Love Your Life program and the 9-day yoga training intensive can be taken in any order, the 12-week program is the very foundation upon which the Empath Yoga Training was built. It’s what puts the Empath in Empath Yoga.
What makes the Empath Yoga Teacher Training so exceptional and unique is the strong focus on personal development. And for those graduates who choose to teach, it allows them to take their new understanding of themselves, human dynamics and yoga, and become truly exceptional teachers in their communities.
Not at all. Anyone with a commitment to their own personal growth can register for the 12-Weeks to Love Your Life program. To learn more about the 12 week program, CLICK HERE.
However, the entire program is really a full lifestyle makeover. Because without a commitment to the breath and regular movement of the body, we run the risk of sliding back into old behavior patterns. The body is the subconscious mind, and when you do the deep inner work that we do in the 12 Week Program, and build upon that with a conscious lifestyle, you are really coming at things from all directions.
Empath Yoga is primarily a Hatha-based style of yoga. But while some schools of yoga teach one specific style or approach to yoga, Empath Yoga takes an integrative approach, drawing from many different schools and many different styles, offering a fresh and creative approach which allows each and every yoga practice to be an intuitive work of art.
Empath Yoga is heart-opening, mind-expanding, and physically, mentally and emotionally empowering.
It is for you if you’re ready to make yoga an ongoing part of your life.
Grow your own intuitive practice. Integrate yoga into your lifestyle. Create a transformational healing experience for yourself and others through a deeply intentional, heart-opening practice.
The Empath Yoga Teacher Training is not just for those who want to teach yoga. It is for anyone who is ready to make a difference in this world.
The Empath Yoga training includes the 12-Weeks to Love Your Life program AND the 9-day Empath Yoga training intensive. These may be taken in either order.
Upon completion of the 9-day intensive, participants who wish to teach are also expected to complete 10 practice classes, and a 40-day continuous, personal yoga practice.
Empath Yoga is not power yoga, it is more of a moving meditation. And we’re really big on modifications to help customize the practice for each individual. So it really is appropriate for everybody and every body.
That said, while we do start from the ground up — learning the fundamentals and basics of yoga and building upon that foundation to grow a truly dynamic, energizing, life-affirming practice — at least 6 months of yoga experience is recommended. You should be at a comfortable beginner level.
A typical day at an Empath Yoga Training looks something like this:
8:00 – 9:30 a.m. Yoga & Guided Meditation
9:30 – 10:00 a.m. Light Breakfast
10:00 – 12:30 p.m. Morning Workshop
12:30 – 1:30 p.m. Lunch
1:30 – 3:30 p.m. Afternoon workshop
3:30 –4:00 p.m. Break
4:00 – 6:00 p.m. Afternoon Yoga &/Or Asana Workshop
*Schedule subject to change.
At an Empath Yoga Teacher Training, the training manual is included in the cost of the training. In some cases, when specified, your lodging and meals may also be included.
You will need your own yoga mat (I recommend a 1/4″ or thicker), 2 yoga blocks and a strap, and a small pillow or meditation cushion.
There are also some additional reference materials you will want to purchase, and if possible start reading through even prior to the training, such as the following books:
Wheels of Life; Anodea Judith
Your Life is Your Medicine; Kristen Schneider
Other suggested resources:
Yoga Sutras of Patanjali
Teaching Yoga; Mark Stephens
Yoga Posture Adjustments And Assisting; Stephanie Pappas
