Historic fearlessYOGA Teacher Training (fYTT)| April 2 - 28, 2010
Residential Intensive Certification Program

Application Deadline: March 19, 2010 | Extensive Work Exchange & Scholarships Available

fearlessYOGA is the first and only yoga approach
ever designed for activists, allies, and agents of social change and this is the first teacher training offered on fearlessYOGA.

fearlessYOGA is Yoga Built for Justice


"Developed and instructed in a social justice framework that relates how we engage on the mat to how we behave in the world, the practice is returned to its rightful place as a personal practice for inner-life development, liberated from the mainstream, thus ownable by agents of social change."
-- angel Kyodo williams, Founder, Center for Transformative Change

Unique highlights and perspectives of the fYTT curriculum:

* Technique: fearlessMeditation: practice of the body
* Teaching Methodology: Social Justice "From Oppression to Liberation" & "Paradigms of Freedom"
* Philosophy: Introduction to Sanskrit
* Teaching Methodology: "Language of Freedom" Communication
* Philosophy: "Returning to Source: Yoga Sutras of Patañjali Study"
* Anatomy & Physiology: "Every Body DIfferent Body: The Structure of Limits"
* Lifestyle: Eating & Wellness

fearlessYOGA has been developed as a yoga practice specifically oriented towards activists. The precise language and approach of the "Effort & Release" teaching framework directly corresponds with the seminal yogic text, the Yoga-Sutras. The method illuminates the habit-patterns of aggression and over-doing by introducing postures in incremental levels of engagement. Alternatively, it encourages activists to learn to "back off" of over-reaching in exchange for discovering one's own internal pace and alignment.

The fearlessYOGA Teacher Training is a certification program that empowers the student-practitioner with both certification as a fearlessYoga Teacher (C-fYT) while also meeting the minimum requirements to become a Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Teacher at the 200-hour level (RYT200).

We welcome you to
live, learn, and transform here, while immersing yourself in a residential, yogic lifestyle. fYTT has been designed in ways that will cultivate your ability to thrive in your personal and professional life and graduate as a unique fearlessYoga teacher, with a well-developed connection to a deep source of inspiration--and the ability to guide others into theirs.

The fearless School of YOGA is a Yoga Alliance registered school. (RYS No. 48583. Newly registered.)
