Cocomotion School of Yoga Spring 2018 Teacher Training
March 17, 2018-June 30 2018
SOUL Seekers...SWEAT Seekers
The role of the instructor is to offer the complete experience, mind, body, spirit as a guide for the seeker. The instructor should be knowledgeable, sincere, confident, and trustworthy. Above all there is an incredible flow of energy between yourself and the people you move, not necessarily within the movement itself, but in the rhythm and heartbeat of the instruction. The teacher breathes and flows as the waves in the room move. The breath, the connection is the flow. As humans, we should all become the teacher. We breathe to learn and discover ourselves. From those depths of knowledge, we teach, share, guide. The yoga studio isn’t the only setting for teaching. Whether or not you ever teach a formal class isn’t the question. The question is: How will you express your passion to pass this powerful practice forward?
During our training we will dive into the philosophy of the movement, yoga and the art of sequencing. Our school is a creative atmosphere to inspire your practice, to build mentoring relationships, and to experience yoga, body, mind and soul. Do YOU exist to move people?
The Unique Experience
You will be led through our training by the most passionate individuals who believe and live a lifestyle that represents this as practice for life, that love is a state of existence and that movement is medicine.
We will share the principles and origin of our signature movement, COCO flow
Meditation will be a large focus on the journey toward sadhana (self discovery).
We pride ourselves on our in-depth understanding of intelligent and creative sequencing and how to trust yourself to structure your own classes.
You will learn and gain practical, hands on experience so that you can leave confident in your own voice, body of knowledge and skill set to prepare you to teach both group and private classes (should you choose).
We encourage a strong home practice to compliment the training to experience the yoga from within rather than only the pages of a book.
We adhere strictly to the Yoga Alliance (YA) standards and exceed the amount of contact hours that are required by the YA.
At the end of our program, you will be able to register as a Registered Yoga Teacher-200 with the Yoga Alliance.

The Business of Yoga
Expect a deep Immersion into the study of the self, a reflection on the practice, a practice for Life.
To move myself.
To move others.
To move the practice of yoga ahead.
When I first started, yoga was something I needed to do for my own well-being, both health-wise and spiritually.
But along my journey, I discovered a passion for teaching and—hopefully—inspiring.
By observing the movement of real people in the real world I was inspired by a collective of yoga philosophy like Iyengar, Ashtanga, and Dharma yoga, and the world and waves around me. I developed a standard sequence that begins with an awakening series leading into a beautifully bold vinyasa flow. Partnered with the movement, the environment is created for the mover to push themselves through challenge with breath. True meditation exists within the motion. The flow presents challenges to the student as opportunities to experience the truth of the body and its connection to the mind and spirit. There are no walls, boundaries or pinnacle point, the practice transforms as the connection to the soul expands. Deep connection exists between the diverse members of our sangha, community. It is a real practice for real people. It is more than asana. It extends far beyond the mat. It is an exhilarating flow for a free life.
I look forward to taking my unique style, and perspective on yoga and movement to the next level with you.

So they say when you discover your personal legend that the first steps come with so much ease and peace. Then the challenges seek you out in all forms of lessons and trials. From there, you recognize the waves, the ebbs and flows, and eventually the challenges make you smile because you recognize them as symbols of growth. This is my yoga. I live yoga and through it I came to know who I am. Before the practice, anxiety ruled my thoughts and interfered with so much of my creative expression. Now, I understand that I can make decisions and live so freely because I trust myself. I trust my practice, my breath, my health, and my thinking mind.
I love to go upside down because in that moment, there is only consciousness and my world pauses. Only my breath and the intensity in my own hands exist. In those moments I learn stillness. “The lake is still, When I’m quiet I heal, Only Love is real.” -MC Yogi
So finding yourself is hard, serving others is finding yourself. Through love and passion we have the power to inspire others to live their best life.
I want to show you that Love is a state of existence. Yoga will guide you to the thoughts that disturb the inherent health and well being that already exist at your core. Discovering your breath will allow you to trust that your happiness already lies within your soul.
Soul seeking starts from within. First we build a relationship with the universe through deep breathing, then the layers. Strength first, then control, then sensitivity. Every class is an opportunity to draw in like minds and create energy through flow that we can all experience. Once we practice together, you're in my heart.
