Level 2 Authorized KPJAYI Teacher
What will you get out of this training?
This program will help you gain a more complete understanding of meditation practice and the stages of the path, deepen your own personal practice and study, and develop your ability to present the meditation in a clear and genuinely helpful way to others.
The course is aimed at yoga teachers, health care professionals, therapists, social workers, and fitness trainers who wish to become more skillful in presenting mindfulness. It will also be appropriate for those who simply want to deepen their own practice and understanding.
What is required for the training?
The Meditation Teacher Training will be structured in three "weekend" levels and two days of meditation together with supplemental study and practice sessions and workshops. Non-credit participants (who wish to take the levels without certification) may take any/all of the three levels independently as well, but they must be taken in sequence. Upon successful completion of the three
levels and supplemental practice and study sessions (as well as a written and oral exam), participants will be certified by Kaia Yoga to teach meditation classes, lead group practice sessions and work with individual students within the yoga studio environment or other appropriate contexts.
