WHO IS THIS TRAINING FOR?
The AM Virtual 200HR is aimed at those looking to teach and/or progress their personal practice. All-levels are welcome, but some form of past movement practice is helpful. If you’re simply looking to expand your own movement modality without any interest in leading classes, you will still greatly benefit from the vast majority of the provided content. We welcome those new to teaching, as well as current teachers who want to dive deeper into the world of logical creativity & unique sequencing. This training is meant for anyone and everyone willing to think critically, embrace their creative side, and join the growing community of those not afraid to move authentically.
WHO IS THIS TRAINING NOT FOR?
Authentic Movements is not meant for those looking for a run of the mill teacher training. If you’re interested in collecting a few sequences to memorize or receiving a list of Right vs Wrong cues and alignment rules, this might not be the place for you. While we welcome use of our platform for continued education purposes and don’t require that you strive for or desire our 200HR certificate of completion, please understand that by purchasing this program, you are not Buying your certificate. You Earn it, and while Authentic Movements is happy to provide countless hours of assistance and tutoring along the way, we do not guarantee completion papers to anyone. That is 100% up to YOU.
“Obtaining my 200-HR Yoga Teacher certification from Authentic Movements was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I had been seeking out the perfect teacher training for over a year. I wanted an intensive training that was going to focus on the “why” behind every movement as well as be very in-depth with anatomy and cueing. When I found out that the AM team was going to host their own, I knew it was going to be a perfect match! I had practiced with Erin and Steph in their past workshops and online video bundles and felt very connected to their energy and teaching style. Not only did this training change the way that I viewed yoga and gave me the space to learn and question, but it prepared me for seeking out yoga teaching jobs after the training was over. Many of the studios in my area required at least a year’s worth of experience before being able to teach, however, I auditioned for two studios just a few weeks out of my training and received both jobs because of how knowledgable and prepared I was due to this amazing training!! This training pushed me to step outside of my comfort zone, grow, and evolve as a human. I can honestly say that this yoga teacher training from Authentic Movements changed my life in so many different ways and I will forever be grateful!” – Alex Scalercio – April 2018 200HR Alum, 500HR Module Trainee
“There is something so magical about the way these ladies teach so when an opportunity came up to attend their YTT. I jumped at the chance thinking I would never get accepted in a million years but to my surprise I did, and I had an amazing experience. Every day was a blast from the funky morning flows to the lovely restorative classes in the evening, they even included some strength-based training which was perfect for a girl like me that likes to pick up heavy things. My practice felt so strong by the end of the month as my previous aches and pains disappeared as I learned how to move in the best way for my body. This training was so jam packed with lots of knowledgeable lectures which were very challenging, interesting, and well thought out. I thought my brains would explode but I learned so much about yoga philosophy, history, anatomy and so much more. I really feel like I am a better person for having attended the Authentic Movements YTT so thank you Steph, Erin, and Bianca for having me.” – Kelly Kinkead Nov/Dec 2019 200HR Alum
“I completed my 200 hour yoga teacher training with Erin, Steph, and Bianca in 2019. I had such an amazing experience! I am really happy with the education I received. The units are well balanced between practicing yoga, teaching (including the business of!), anatomy, and philosophy. I started teaching yoga classes within a week of finishing my teacher training, and I was well prepared. The 200 hour is a really good sampler – you get a chance to dip your toes into all kinds of teaching styles and ideas. It’s a great way to learn a lot about what’s out there and what is interesting to you. Based on what I learned, I’ve continued to pursue education about sequencing and anatomy.
Erin, Steph, and Bianca have very complimentary skill sets. They share the same core philosophy, and each bring their own perspective. Having multiple teachers was something I didn’t even know I wanted from a teacher training, and I am really thankful for in hindsight. They do a wonderful job of explaining complex ideas, then opening up the room for discussion. They truly created a safe space where I felt free to speak my mind and ask real questions. I’m an analytical person, and it was very important to me that I was given the opportunity to share my perspective and given the time to think things through.” – Jill Foster – Jan/Feb 2019 200HR Alum
Authentic Movements is privileged and honored to offer an exceptional Yoga Alliance registered 200HR Yoga Teacher Training for those interested in starting their journey as a movement professional or current teachers looking to delve deeper into their teaching and asana. And remember, teacher training isn’t only for those looking to teach! It’s also a great opportunity to hone your personal practice and body awareness.
In the past, Authentic Movements has done mostly in-person, intensive-style 200HR programs. While the camaraderie and community during an in-person training is beautiful, ONLINE OFFERINGS provide many benefits as well. These include:
- EXTRA CONTENT – we can go above and beyond the standard 200HRs when there’s no timer and you can take as long as you’d like to complete the content
- ON-DEMAND, WORK ANYTIME – You have access for two years. Take your time.
- REVISIT SECTIONS: During the course, if you need more info or afterwards, if you really liked a flow. Again, the content is yours for two years. Go through in the provided order the first time, and then have access to whatever you want!
- VIRTUAL COMMUNITY BUILDING: FB group + post alum opportunities + QA sessions. We can still be a community through our screens and then meet in person for continued growth and exploration!
Regardless of the training format (online or in-person), our 200HR YTTs offer a powerful foundation in anatomy, alignment, sequencing, and yoga philosophy, all while curating the growth and evolution of every teacher’s personal creative language and authentic teaching style.
While showing great reverence the long history of yoga in all of its forms, the Authentic Movements 200HR Teacher Training helps assign modern application to the myriad of traditional platforms and schools. This training is registered under Yoga Alliance as “Hatha Vinyasa,” however, Authentic Movements chooses not to be defined by any singular school and instead looks to combine a variety of movement methods to serve a continuously expanding audience and their changing needs.
The goal of the 200HR training is to equip new teachers with the skillset to teach safe and effective classes to the general population. Authentic Movements also strives to hone critical thinking and extrapolation skills for all attendees so that AM teachers understand the WHY behind the cues and are able to create Smart Sequences that reflect their personal teaching style.
Outside of a daily movement practice, attendees can expect courses/workshops on alignment, adjustments, teaching basics, sequencing, yoga history, anatomy, philosophy, basic Sanskrit, business ethics, social media + marketing, and public speaking. More than anything, Authentic Movements schedules copious self, small group, and class teaching time so that attendees can complete the training with a strong toolbox of teaching moments. For the online format, this will be carried out through a variety of video & live teaching opportunities.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Authentic Movements is a Yoga Alliance Registered School at the 200 & 300HR level. Currently, due to COVID-19, Yoga Alliance has allowed for fully online trainings through the end of 2020. There is no guarantee that they will continue this provision into 2021. As long as Yoga Alliance allows it, upon successful completion of the 200HR program and receipt of certificate from Authentic Movements, students may register with Yoga Alliance as a 200HR RYT via the online training alone.
If in-person hours become required by Yoga Alliance, Authentic Movements may offer their in-person 10 day intensive as a training finishing course at a reduced rate, but there will be extra costs outside of this online program. Remember that certificates are earned, not bought, and while Authentic Movements is happy to provide assistance and check-ins along the way, the ultimate decision is YOURS.
