The two other modules in our 300-Hour Modular Teacher Training include the following:

The Physical Body Module

From a Tantric perspective, the physical body is made up of different densities of energy, which lead back to pure consciousness.  In this module, we will explore advanced yoga postures, sequencing, anatomy and physiology through an ISHTA lens.

Requirements: Completion of ISHTA 200-hour Teacher Training, or other 200-hour Training and ISHTA Immersion 

The Art  of Touch Module 

In this 10-day immersion, we will explore the nuanced practice of giving hands-on adjustments to all body types. The art of touch requires mastery and sensitivity, and the ISHTA approach is one that integrates constant practice, feedback, and intuition. 

Physiologically, our hands occupy about 30% of the sensory cortex in the brain. From an energetic perspective, they are the transmitters of Shakti, which is the mother-nature force the governs us. The hands also relate to the heart and throat chakras, so how we touch relates to both how we feel and how we communicate. Learn how to apply the principles of ISHTA yoga and the seven segments of alignment to hands-on adjustments, enhancing both your teaching and your connection to your students. 

Requirements: Completion of ISHTA 200-hour Teacher Training, or other 200-hour Training and ISHTA Immersion
