KNOFF Yoga Teacher Training 2018 Survey

KNOFF Yoga Teacher Training 2018 Survey

This 5-minute survey is vital for you to read and complete if –

  • You are interested in attending the KNOFF Yoga 200-hour teacher training this Jan 2018, or
  • You have been looking for a high-standard yoga teacher training to attend in the near future, or
  • You are keen to explore yoga more in depth, attending primarily for personal development not so much for teaching certification

As you may already be aware, in discussions with James Bryan and Nicky Knoff (KNOFF Yoga), we are bringing KNOFF Yoga Teacher Training to Canberra Yoga Space this January 2018. We feel very privileged and honoured to be able to offer this premium-grade teacher training to Canberra, and we are now on the final stages of refining the best format to roll-out this world-class training to you.

This survey is to find out which format works best for you, as we will be going for the option that works best for the majority.

The deadline for completing this survey is next Sunday 27 August 2017.

Why this survey?

For those who attended the three-day KNOFF Yoga Master Classes with James Bryan last 14-16 July 2017, you had an experience not only of the extensive knowledge, but also of how demanding the weekend immersion can be on both one’s energy and physical body. The weekend was an empowering and brilliant experience which has barely scratched the surface, and the 200-hour KNOFF Teacher Training will be delivering more!

It is crucial for us to consider the best time-frame and format to deliver this 200-hour teacher training, so as to allow you to receive the most benefit from the course in a manner that is feasible and digestible.

For instance, if you are looking to be able to teach yoga in the quickest time possible and get the certification under your belt, you may prefer Option 1 – four weeks in January 2018. This option is very compact and intense. However, we understand that this period in January may be the only time you can take off work and other commitments, and dedicate time to finish and complete the entire course in one go. Just know that this option may be more demanding on the entire body; and offers less time in between segments to allow you to absorb and assimilate information gradually.

If you are in no rush to complete a teacher training course within a specific period of time, or if you will have trouble getting four solid weeks off work (away from kids or work commitments) in Jan 2018, then Option 2 may be more suitable for you. This still blocks off a big chunk of time in January — two weeks in January, one week in April, and the last week in June 2018.

Please let us know which option works best for you by completing the contact form below. The deadline for survey submissions is next Sunday 27 August 2017.

Two Survey Options

OPTION 1 – KNOFF Teacher Training offered in one chunk

This option is a 1 month intensive – four weeks, 8 hours per day in January 2018
Discovery Segment – 2-6 January 2018 (5 days, 8 hours per day)
Foundation Segment – 15 January – 3 February 2018 (16 days, 8 hours per day PLUS 2 x 2 day breaks included)

PLEASE NOTE: Sarah Owen’s Yin Yoga 50-Hour Teacher Training falls between the Discovery segment and the Foundation segment, it runs from 8-13 January. Sarah’s Yin Yoga teacher training is complementary, and I (Monica) would personally recommend doing both.

OPTION 2 – (KNOFF Teacher Training offered in three segments)

This option is staggered – 2 weeks in January, 1 week in April, and 1 week in June 2018.
Segment 1 – Discovery Segment (2-6 January 2018 – 5 days, 8 hours per day)

PLEASE NOTE: Sarah Owen’s Yin Yoga 50-Hour Teacher Training falls between the Discovery segment and the Foundation segment, it runs from 8-13 January. Sarah’s Yin Yoga teacher training is complementary, and I (Monica) would personally recommend doing both.

SURVEY

Important to note about Yoga Teacher Training:

Most people may think that teacher training courses are only for those who wish to teach yoga. When in fact, it is not. The potential for personal growth and transformation a course such as this (KNOFF Teacher Training) offers, is relevant to anyone interested in evolving into the best and highest version of themselves, whether or not you intend to use the experience to teach thereafter. If you are a practitioner of yoga, and you wish to further explore your journey not only in asana, but more importantly in spirituality, consciousness and self-mastery – this course is a highly potent experience, which is relevant to you.

For teachers – if you are a yoga teacher certified in your 200-hour TT, that last course you did was the beginning of the journey ahead of you. You will find that advanced experienced teachers have done at least 2-3 teacher training courses, after their first teacher training.  Sadly, the industry is plagued with a predominance of sub-standard teacher-training and the watering down of centuries-old techniques that make-up the foundations of true yoga practise.

If you feel you need further training, and you wish to learn from advanced yoga practitioner-teachers who have not only mastered their own craft, but have also trained extensively with the yoga masters in India now deceased (B.K.S. Iyengar, Sri Pattabhi Jois,  and Desikachar), this is your opportunity to get that one solid course under your belt.

Thank you for your input. We value your time, and ensuring this course works as best for you and your requirements as much as possible.

Namaste
