This yoga teacher training is certified by the Yoga Alliance. 

Have you always wanted to become a yoga teacher? Maybe you intuitively know it is the path for you. Perhaps you are not ready to teach yoga, but just simply want to dive deeper into this practice? Or maybe you are a yoga teacher already and want to learn more.

โ€‹

I'm Alexandra McRobert, and I am the founder of the Mindful Life Practice. I have been teaching yoga for seven years and practicing yoga since childhood. Before I started yoga, I struggled with my mental health and mood. Becoming a yoga teacher completely changed my life - it gave me greater purpose, meaning and helped me learn how to live yoga - not just do yoga. There is so much to learn beyond the Warrior poses - there is history, philosophy, anatomy and ethics of yoga - and when you learn all of this, it can completely change your life.

โ€‹

I started my first 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training in April 2021. Since then I've graduated over 20 students and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive! Here's what my students have to say...

โ€‹

What You Get:

  • Weekly live zoom pods with a small group of maximum ten participants led by a certified Sober Curious Yoga Teacher, for community, connection, empowerment and support (8 Hours of live, Zoom meetings)

"It's really amazing to think that it's only been ten months or so that I have been practicing yoga with @alexmcrobs @themindfullifepractice community. When Alex announced she was now offering the Yoga Teacher Training, I signed up. I am so glad I did - I have learned so much in this first module and I can't wait to continue. I am loving improving my postures but even just as much, expanding my mind through the philosophy of yoga. I am reframing how I look at the world and how I approach every day. This has been a touch year for everyone and I honestly don't know how I would have gotten through it without yoga. I thought I was grounded but this has revealed a whole dimension to my life that I didn't realize I had the power to open. Truly life changing.

"I'm really grateful for the opportunity to join such a lovely group on the YTT. The sense of community is amazing. This root chakra chapter has been a reminder for being rooted, confident and knowing that I have all the power within myself. Alex is a perfect teacher to walk alongside the experience. She is always making us feel safe and inviting us to explore our creativity."

Disclaimer: As with anything in life - you get what you give. While we provide all the classes, workbooks, material and support to become a yoga teacher, ultimately, you will only see results if you show up and are committed to the course.

With a flexible set up of live zoom plus on demand content, over 3000 pages of textbook material, and live interaction with Alex on Zoom, you'll become a confident, capable, and exceptional yoga teacher at the end of this training.

Module 6: Third Eye Chakra
"Everything I Need is Within Me."

The third eye chakra is about intuition. When this chakra is in balance, we move beyond the surface and are able to see the world around us with clarity, insight and wisdom. In this module we will study physiology, including the vagus nerve, the stress and relaxation response, and respiration and anatomy. We will workshop twisting poses from yoga.

In the final module of this 200 Hour Training, you will be exposed to the necessary foundations for student safety, educated on how to adapt for various student types, and learn about teaching methodology and instruction. You will learn about the business of yoga, including marketing, reaching your full potential as a teacher, and building revenue and business streams. You will give two presentations to the class: one on a chosen topic of interest from yoga humanities, and one on a chosen topic of interest from the anatomy of yoga. You will put all of the pieces together from your training and create a final project, which will be an eight-week yoga course for The Mindful Life Practice.
