Meditation Teacher Training

January 23, 2019
The Meditation module is part of our Art of Chill Series: An Immersion and Self Care Experience for Yoga Teachers. This is part of our CEU program, designed to give teachers who currently hold a 200/500-certification additional tools to create chill space for self and students.
Weekend schedule:
Friday 7:45-9:15pm
Saturday 1:00-7:00pm
Sunday 8:30-3:30pm
The traditional yoga practice was originally designed to support extended periods of meditation, and yet most of us, as yoga teachers, received very little formal training in meditation. Your 200-hour training prepared you to guide your students through an in-depth yoga practice. Now, it is time to give them the next step. Meditation.
The research surrounding meditation shows it is powerfully potent, physically and chemically changing your brain, boosting immune function and increases positive emotions.
Sacred Chill {West}’s Meditation Immersion is designed for Yoga Teachers looking to incorporate meditation into their classes as well as for those wanting to deepen a personal meditation practice. In this 15-hour course, you will:
• Experience extended meditations
• Learn how to modify meditative postures for comfort
• Discover the differences between the most common meditation styles
• Create your own guided meditations
• Find your meditative voice through practice teaches with the guidance of a mentor
Expect to walk away comfortable with a silent, at-home meditation practice as well as ready to incorporate mini-meditations into your yoga classes. This is part of our CEU program, designed to give experienced teachers additional tools to create a speciality as a professional teacher.

Be Still, Then Move
210 Hour Yoga & Meditation Teacher Training

September 13, 2019 – March 15, 2020

We are here to be lit from the inside out. To be courageous enough to pause, be still, and then move. {Chill with all of the running all over the place, all of the competing, all of the disconnection.} We are here to move from a deep, resonant, and woke place. We are here to be in purposeful, empowering inquiry- together. We are here to challenge, support, and encourage each other. Anchored in stillness and mindful movement, our training invites you to question what yoga “has to” look and feel like. More than pushing boundaries and finding your edge, our training bravely guides you to identify, trust, live, and teach from your center. This is an opportunity to learn, explore, and grow in a sacred and chill space.

From a more centered and grounded place every single movement -whether it’s in our bodies, hearts, family, the front lines of a protest, service, work, or leadership- every movement born from stillness is exponentially more powerful. Our lead teachers Octavia and Meryl {O+M} ‘s most powerful “moves” in the yoga room and beyond were born from stillness This is why we teach- Be still, then move.

The stillness based practices of yin and restorative yoga are at the heart of our training. Meditation is the breath of our training. Movement and mindful flow-based practices are the vessels and lungs. They are all essential and equally emphasized. Beyond the traditional postures that we can take on the mat, our training is a course in the cultivation of Self and an invitation to be in deep inquiry about how we can build community, real connections, and effect change; how we can create movement(s) grounded in yoga beyond our mats.

This training will cover:

Restorative Yoga
Yin Yoga
Meditation
Vinyasa/Flow
Prenatal
much, much more (visit http://sacredchillwest.com/yoga-teacher-training/ for full details)

Co-directed by Octavia Raheem & Meryl Arnett
