Yoga for Athletes Five-Day Teachers’ Intensive in NC

Monday July 15, 2019 @ 10:00 am–5:00 pm at Carrboro Yoga Company

casualAs more and more athletes credit yoga with taking their performance to the next level, the field of yoga for athletes is growing in exciting directions. Specializing in yoga for athletes allows you to share yoga’s benefits with a new, receptive population. Sage Rountree, a pioneer in the field, has multifaceted experience as a coach, athlete, and teacher working with endurance-sports athletes and collegiate teams.
This five-day intensive on yoga for sports training is designed for yoga teachers interested in working with athletes of all sports; it will also be useful for coaches, PE teachers, and personal trainers. In lecture, group discussion, led yoga sequences, and practice teaching, we will cover:

Participants will gain a new awareness of the parallels between yoga and sports training and will leave feeling empowered to teach yoga to athletes in studio, gym, team, or one-on-one settings. The workshop may also be used for CEUs and CECs; contact us for details.

This intensive parallels the content of Sage’s online course on teaching yoga to athletes. After the training, you can choose to upgrade to a certification track. Upon completion of a take-home exam and submission of a teaching video, participants who are already teaching at the Yoga Alliance 200-hour level or have comparable experience will receive a certification in teaching yoga to athletes. In addition, the certification track includes free access to the online version of the course, which contains resources and specific sequences for working with different sports and needs, as well as ongoing support from Sage and your colleagues.

This course fulfills an elective requirement for the Carolina Yoga 500-Hour Teacher Training. It’s also open to everyone.

Recommended reading: Sage Rountree, The Athlete’s Guide to Yoga, The Runner’s Guide to Yogaand Everyday Yoga. These are all available on this website, at the studio, or on Amazon.

Please note: we are moving the Carrboro studio this summer, and depending on the exact date the new place is ready, we may be in Carrboro, or this training will be held at our Hillsborough location—yes, in the same building as Hillsborough Spa and Day Retreat! If we wind up in Hillsborough, we’ll help you with a carpool if you’re flying in from out of town and want to stay car-free. Carrboro housing options include a Hampton Inn and great AirBnB options in easy walking distance of the sweet downtown and new studio (no car needed!). Read more at the studio’s travel accommodations page. In addition to learning a ton, expect to enjoy your stay in our beautiful town.

Monday, July 15–Friday, July 19, 10:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m. and 2:00–5:00 p.m.
