Welcome to an in-depth study with one of our most experienced senior teachers in the world - Chad Hamrin, Master Teacher from Los Angeles, USA.
Chad taught at Alan Fingers studio in the 80's. Chad was Maty Ezratys and Chuck Millers teachers, and when Chuck, Maty and Alan opened YogaWorks he then went on to teach there.
Chad is today one of the more authentic voices of yoga and he´s teaching go through the body, and is yoking the mind and spirit.
WHY DO A TEACHER TRAINING?
When a person decides they want to try yoga, they usually randomly pick a class and go have an experience.
If they like it, they will start asking around to see who the good teachers are, or which are the fun classes, or the hard classes, etc...
As the student becomes more interested they hopefully start to become more selective with whom they take classes; they start studying, maybe taking workshops, etc...
By the time a student arrives at the decision to do a teacher training they have crossed over into making a rather serious commitment and memorable moments with like minded people... a family!
So, when one is ready for a TT they are hopefully ready for a journey, a challenge, a commitment that lasts far beyond the TT itself.
When that happens - you have to consider not just the TT itself, but also who the teacher is who is going to guide you.
ABOUT CHAD HAMRIN:
In 1967 I became involved with the Martial Arts. I wasn’t aware of it as an art at that time.
I entered as a shy, angry teenager and trained hard for a good number of years before I got to the artful part. That eventually led to an understanding that was carried over into my studies of yoga and bodywork.
There was always a deeper place to go - if you were open to it.
I teach from a place where there’s a journey open to all, called life.
Yoga helps us to be more open and present in our journey. I teach to simplify and to hopefully inspire each student to be open to their own journey, open to both the struggles and the joys, and to find a place of deep gratitude instead of perfection.
I don’t really have a style, I have a practice, and it becomes intuitively presented through the teaching or sharing.
One doesn’t really teach someone something; the art is to create a circumstance that they get.
- That’s the joy, a connection to something deeper that they have found.
Chad shares info about the schedule of the training :
"Instead of breaking these days down into themes or titles, I’d like to introduce and explore certain ideas or concepts that might change your practice or your way of seeing the potential in your practice and teaching.
Using basic rules of alignment, exploring the subtle body mind actions, breath related energetic concepts in practical ways, imagination, etc. to break down barriers of what we thought we knew and possibly find new doorways into a yet unknown foundational understand. A new potential that lies hidden in each of us.
We will navigate our way through many yoga asanas, twists, inversions ,standing poses ,forward flexion’s ,backward extensions. - How far we get into these areas depends on you, individually.
