Yoga Strong Specialty Certification
Nov 07 - Nov 088:00 AM—6:00 PM$349
Yoga Strong blends power flow yoga with exercise techniques to specifically increase strength and endurance. It offers the discipline of a yoga practice and intensity options similar to a challenging fitness class. Participants in NETA’s virtual, interactive Yoga Strong Yoga training will learn to teach a multi-level yoga class with multiple intensity variations, a focus on the breath, traditional asana and stretching sequences, and encouragement of mental focus to help maintain yogic integrity. Yoga for strength classes may be structured to include yoga based flow sequences, body weight exercises, resistance training with hand-held weights, cardiovascular drills, and core focused training. This training will focus on a foundation of hatha yoga infused with basic principles of cardiorespiratory endurance and long holds for increased strength and muscle adaptation.
*Yoga Strong can be taken as a stand-alone certification to teach yoga classes and/or can be taken as part of the 200 Hour Yoga Program approved by Yoga Alliance.
