Teacher Training

Taught by: Marc St. Pierre

Fall 2016 - Spring 2017

About Marc:

It all began over 10 years ago when Marc asked a friend about where would be a great place to "do some real yoga." His friend guided him to City Yoga Los Angeles in California when the studio was a little over a year old. "I had such great fortune to meet Anthony Benenati, Sue Elkind, and Naime Jezzeny, each had so much to offer and it was a sensational place to be...the birth of Anusara Yoga!" "It was like being a conspirator in a great revolution....like making yoga history!" Vive la Revolution! 

Marc is a Certified Anusara teacher known Internationally and had the good fortune to establish Anusara on the fantastical island of Maui, where he lived for seven years. Marc now travels and teaches and cannot believe this is his "job!" Clearly, and with enormous gratitude for the Anusara community, and for John Friend, Marc celebrates teaching yoga as his vocation and service.

Part One  |  Education

You must acquire the necessary knowledge to support your own practice and personal development within the parameters of yoga.

"The ability to understand and articulate the experience of your yoga practice IS the foundation of your teaching." - Marc St Pierre

A solid ability to understand asana physically and it's philosophical roots will be fortified during this phase of your training so you will have the foundation needed to be a successful teacher in training.

Part TWO  |  Learning the art of teaching

As you deepen your appreciation for what practice is, you will then cultivate the practical application of your experience into the skill and art of teaching. This is the fun stuff!

Being an effective, compassionate, and authentic teacher is the goal. A teacher who can support others through their knowledge, ability, and great heart provides a wonderful service to his/her community.  To be invited to share in this way one must  respect and appreciate the invitation with gratitude.

Part THREE  |  TEACHING

Teaching- those students who demonstrate a steady ability will be invited to teach publicly at a community class at Yoga Sakti. It is possible for all students to attain this level....Believe it. Are you ready?
