200-Hour Mosaic Yoga Teacher Training

with Morgan Cowie and the Mosaic Team

Are you looking for a community where you feel welcome showing up just as you are? Or even more, are you looking for a way to feel at home in the world? And finally, do you want to live your life in a way that feels like it assists other beings to feel that same sense of belonging and ease?

The Mosaic Yoga 200-Hour Program brings together the art, tradition and technology of Yoga with a progressive take on what practice means for us today. We combine our enthusiasm and passion for the practice, ethics and philosophy of yoga with contemporary life and current models of understanding movement and inclusion. We know that this practice helps us feel and do better – in our bodies, in our spirits and in our communities because we’ve spent years practicing both on the mat and off of it.

This program is for you if you want:

  • A firm and clear handle on the basics of anatomy and movement. Why do our bodies work the way they do? How do the poses (or asana) of yoga ‘work’ on different muscle groups and why? What does a balanced practice look like? Can we go beyond the ways bodies look and understand functionality on a deeper level?
  • A deep dive into why the philosophy of yoga can help us to live happier lives. What are the parallels between yogic ontology (the science of Being) and contemporary neuroscience? How does the yogic view of emotions and mindfulness translate into modern psychological principles and how do we use these to continue evolving and letting go of ‘stuckness’ from the past?
  • An examination of ethics through the lens of anti-oppression and decolonization. How can we acknowledge and sit with the discomfort of a colonized practice if this practice was not a part of our culture of origin? How can we teach and practice yoga in a harm-reduction model?
  • The ability to create and teach intelligent, effective and creative sequences which are based on principles, not rigid rules. We want you to be you while still having a baseline set of guidelines to sequence from. How do you create classes that reflect your own personal values and practice that also serve the needs of the many individuals who attend? How can we use the practice of yoga to work against our inherited biases?
  • A deep understanding of classical meditation and breath techniques for your own personal practice and for your students. How are these practices applied to create balance in the emotions and nervous system? What is the benefit of slow medicine?
  • Progressions and regressions for poses and sequences. What does a beginner class look like? How about intermediate? How can you take the same skills you already have for a level one to other levels of classes?
  • Ways to adapt classes and poses to serve unique populations. How does the practice change for people who are pregnant or recently post-partum? What about as we age and for those who experience menopause? What about knee, hip and shoulder injuries
  • Introduction to other practice modalities. What is yin yoga and how does it differ from restorative? What is the difference between yoga nidra and meditation? What the heck is rope wall yoga anyway?
  • How to teach and practice yoga that is focused on wellbeing, compassion and inclusion for yourself and others. Our number one goal here is to help you feel at home in your body and the world. From there, you take that out into the world!
