 300-HOUR YTT WITH MEGHAN CURRIE | INTRINSIC GENIUS | THE VISION

Meghan-Currie-Flower.jpg

in·trin·sic: belonging to the essential nature of a thing; occurring as a natural part of something
genius: an exceptional natural capacity of intellect


“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its
ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life
believing that it is stupid.”

~ Albert Einstein ~



Meghan-Currie-Backbend.jpg

Our personal Sadhana and teaching, along with everything else we do, holds the potential for us to recover our self-trust and reclaim our innate spontaneity, creativity, and flow. Trust brings us deep into our bodies, back to ourselves at the moment, to a place where our fear of unpredictability becomes alchemized into possibility. We open to an adventure on a path yet uncarved.

When we accept the unknown and embrace this mystery, we can then allow life to unfold moment by moment. From this place of connection, our own Intrinsic Genius begins to emerge, and we step into the flood stream of creativity, spontaneity, and flow.

In this three-part advanced teacher training, we will combine a deep exploration of personal practice with advanced skill-building sessions to propel your development as a professional yoga instructor. Your growth will be supported by studies in cueing, tensegrity and the fascia system, Vedantic philosophy, neuroscience, meditation, hands-on assists, sequencing, breathwork, and pranayama. By combining rich inner work with technical craft, you will be empowered to skillfully conduct the many layers of the class experience with integrity and authenticity.

Join Meghan Currie for her new 300-hour teacher training program, Intrinsic Genius. This three-part YTT is composed of three 100-hour modules that will support 200-hour teachers to unearth their own intrinsic genius and authentic teaching voice. Take each part alone to advance your education, or take all three and earn your 300-hour certification.

“To believe your own thought, to believe what is true
for you in your own private heart… that is genius…”

~ Emerson ~

Note: these three modules that together make a 300-hour teacher training do not need to be taken sequentially. Each module will excavate and explore a particular aspect of the practice to help teachers deeply embody those teaching principles.

 

MODULE 1 | 100-HOUR | SEPTEMBER 1 - 11
SEQUENCING & SADHANA

Everything can be sadhana. The way you eat, the way you sit, the way you stand, the way you breathe, the way you conduct your body, mind and your energies and emotions – this is sadhana. Sadhana does not mean any specific kind of activity, sadhana means you are using everything as a tool for your wellbeing.”

~ Sadhguru ~

Without the support of embodied experience, new ideas and teaching can remain flat and intellectualized information. However, once something has been felt and digested from within, this information can develop potency and be integrated into wisdom.

Sadhana is the tool that helps us translate our experiences into understanding. Through Sadhana, we digest our experience so that it becomes a purifying medicine. The practice helps us to embody our own experience. From this anchor, we can teach with greater depth, potency, creativity, and spontaneity.

Sequencing and Sadhana will be a rich discovery and uncovering of the truths that are born from and within your personal practice. In this 100-hour journey, you will engage in concentrated studies in sequencing, theming, neuroscience, pranayama, and meditation. By positioning these technical studies within a greater experience of practice, you will integrate this understanding and be able to act as a transmitter of the teachings.

BY THE END OF THIS 100-HR MODULE YOU WILL BE ABLE TO:

MODULE 2 | 100-HOUR | JULY 21 - 31 | 2020
INSPIRED COMMUNICATION & EXPERIENTIAL ANATOMY

Communication is like painting a picture with our words. To paint a powerful picture, we must have a clear internal vision of what we’re trying to convey. We build and clarify this internal vision through our own embodied experience, which we can then translate and transmit to our students through our cueing.

Studying anatomy is about more than learning the muscles and bones; it is about recognizing our own holistic, multi-dimensional embodiment. When we integrate anatomical knowledge experientially, we develop an inspired and organic ability to communicate a new depth of understanding.

Through studying advanced integrative anatomy in this course, you will learn how the myofascial network of the body “connects the dots” and inspires strength, tensegrity, and grace.

Through your personal practice, you will build a three-dimensional library of language, metaphor, and imagery that will spark new realizations in your students.

BY THE END OF THIS 100-HR MODULE YOU WILL BE ABLE TO: 

Meghan Currie 1.jpg
  • Cue the physical body in asana, from the visceral to the subtle.

  • Learn, embody, and cue Meghan’s “connect the dots” method to create tensegrity and holistic connection in all layers of the body.

  • Develop your own internal library of metaphors, imagery, and creative language that you can draw from to expand your teaching and cueing.

  • Describe how the fascial trains model illuminates and activates your yoga practice and supports functional movement.

  • Skillfully cue to “align as you transition” the body within movement.

  • Use integrative hands-on assists that work with the intelligence of the body to help students integrate the actions of the pose.

  • Intelligently cue students in order to help them to self-adjust.

  • Deepen your connection to your own voice, empower your presence, and hold space as a teacher.

  • Enrich and advance your personal yoga through juicy, daily immersive practices.

 

MODULE 3 | 100-HOUR | AUGUST 11 - 21 | 2020
BREATHFLOW MEDICINE & THE SUBTLE BODY


Breath is the force that animates us from the moment we arrive until the moment we transition. It is with us every moment, every step of the journey of our life. Breathing is so automatic and “regular” that it can largely go unnoticed, its effects becoming unrealized or taken for granted.

Through practice, we become skillful conductors of the subtle movements of breath and are able to teach our students to work with its power. Through cultivating breath awareness, we intensify the potency of each moment and bring greater awareness, appreciation, and enjoyment into our lives.

In this course, you will learn how prana moves within the body, and how to use bandha, breath, and mudra to move this energy skillfully through the body. Through asana, pranayama, and meditation techniques, you will cultivate a deeper intimacy and remember the true presenting power of your breath in your practice and life.

This module will be an opportunity to nurture and grow your relationship with your breath. Each day will unfold a new layer of practices designed sequentially to refine your skills, capacities, and sensitivities for uncovering the meaning of what it means to breathe.


BY THE END OF THIS 100-HR MODULE YOU WILL BE ABLE TO:

ABOUT MEGHAN

Meghan-Currie-Bio-Pic-1.jpg

Meghan Currie is electric, potent, infectious. She is a creator, moulding the light and dark within herself into yoga classes and art which are expansive journeys through inner layers. She loves this work, this creating, learning, concocting, healing; she has given herself to it fully. Her teenage years and early twenties were burdened by debilitating anxiety and depression. She traversed this yawning darkness with eyes wide open, always learning. And it was through this trauma that she discovered the immense healing powers of the body-mind. She now works with these healing powers, moving people beyond what they know, beneath what they see, constantly intuiting the highest truth, the deepest narrative, revealing the wisdom that she found in the dark, as a service to bring others into the light.
