Lighting the Path Teacher Training with Pete Guinosso prepares you to be an authentic and heart-centered yoga teacher, offering compassionate and accessible vinyasa flow classes for all levels of students.Vigorous morning yoga intensives guide you deeper into your own practice and life purpose, while afternoon instructional sessions cover an extensive yoga teacher curriculum, including cueing, sequencing, hands-on assists, working with injuries, demonstration techniques, vocal presence, yoga philosophy and history, the business of yoga, ethics, and anatomy.
The LTP program includes a variety of teaching methods so that you can learn, practice and embody the material. This includes demonstration, lecture, talking circles, group processes, and partner practice. You will receive personalized attention, guidance, and feedback directly from Pete Guinosso and his highly qualified assisting staff and senior guest faculty.
Process work helps you to connect to your own heart’s wisdom and find your authentic voice as a teacher. Deep connection with the community of trainees and trainers gives you the support you need during and after the training to be successful in establishing yourself as a teacher and throughout your yoga career.
LTP trainees begin teaching on day one, initially teaching to other students and gradually building up to teach a group public class under Pete’s guidance. The program’s teaching focus helps trainees become adaptable and knowledgeable teachers for a wide variety of students.
This training is ideal for serious students of yoga and aspiring teachers, as well as current yoga teachers looking to add additional skills to their teaching.
