SCC Yoga Teacher Training


AFTER YEARS OF ATHLETICS,
TERRY DEQUINA CAME TO YOGA FOR RELIEF OF ACHES AND
PAINS HE FELT IN HIS BACK, LEGS AND ANKLES. EVERY TIME I MAYBE TAKE
A BREAK FROM IT, THE AILMENTS SEEM
TO COME BACK. BUT EVERY TIME I START
UP AGAIN, I GET RELIEF. JORDYN HANSON HAS ENJOYED
PRACTICING YOGA FOR THE LAST EIGHT YEARS. PRACTICING MAKES ME MORE
SELF-AWARE BOTH MENTALLY AND PHYSICALLY. SHE’S NOW STUDYING TO
BECOME A YOGA TEACHER TO COMBINE THAT WITH HER JOB
AS A BEHAVIORAL THERAPIST FOR SPECIAL
NEEDS CHILDREN. THERE ARE OLDER KIDS WHO
NEED HELP WITH POSTURE CAUSE THEY DON’T HAVE THE
BODY AWARENESS THAT I CAN HELP, KNOWING THE
BENEFITS OF YOGA. AT SCOTTSDALE COMMUNITY
COLLEGE THE PUBLIC IS INVITED TO ENJOY YOGA
CLASSES AS WELL AS FOLLOW A PROGRAM TO BECOME
A YOGA TEACHER. TONI KOBET WANTS TO
INTRODUCE YOGA TO PEOPLE HER AGE AND OLDER. TO LEARN WHAT IT CAN DO
FOR THEM AS THEY AGE BEING ABLE TO MAINTAIN SOME
ABILITIES THAT THEY OTHERWISE MIGHT
NOT BE ABLE TO. CARLYN SIKES TEACHES YOGA
STUDENTS HOW TO BECOME YOGA TEACHERS THEMSELVES
IN A FOUR-SEMESTER PROGRAM. THEY GET A CERTIFICATE FROM
SCOTTSDALE COMMUNITY COLLEGE. AND THEY ALSO BECOME
REGISTERED IN THE YOGA ALLIANCE WHEN THEY
COMPLETE THE PROGRAM. THEY CAN THEN TEACH IN
HEALTH CLUBS, PRIVATE STUDIOS OR START
THEIR OWN BUSINESS. STUDENTS CAN ALSO FOLLOW
A TWO-YEAR PROGRAM TO BE CERTIFIED IN YOGA THERAPY.
THIS CLASS FOCUSES ON THE THERAPEUTIC
MODIFICATIONS OF ASANA. AND TO UNDERSTAND THAT YOU
HAVE TO HAVE A REQUISITE KNOWLEDGE OF ASANA. SIKES EXPLAINED THAT ASANA
IS A YOGA POSE; WHERE TO PUT THE FEET AND HOW
THE BODY IS POSITIONED. ALISON EASTER HAS
PRACTICED YOGA FOR 15 YEARS AND IS NOW 8 MONTHS
PREGNANT WITH HER THIRD CHILD. I’M TAKING THIS CLASS
AS PART OF MY ONGOING TRAINING TO BE
A YOGA TEACHER. ONE OF THE THINGS FOR
PRE-NATAL YOGA IS TO FACILITATE THE BIRTH AND
HEALTH OF THE BABY RATHER THAN TO FOCUS ON THE
STRENGTH OR FLEXIBILITY OF ME. AS STUDENTS BECOME
PROFICIENT IN TEACHING YOGA, THE PUBLIC CAN ENJOY FREE YOGA
CLASS FOR THE STUDENTS TO FULFILL THEIR
PRACTICUM REQUIREMENT. IT’S THE MAGIC OF TEACHING. HOW YOU INSPIRE SOMEONE TO
PRACTICE AND WANT TO LEARN SOMETHING THAT YOU’RE
PASSIONATE ABOUT. FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT
THE YOGA TEACHERS TRAINING PROGRAM VISIT

FOR MARICOPA NOW.
