This program is designed to give you skills and understanding that you can use now AND that will continue to deepen and unfold over time. The curriculum is resilience-focused. What that means in a practical sense is that the starting place is of acknowledgment of the traumas potentially being held by yourself and your students. This allows for these amazing practices to be applied in a way that is most supportive of the holistic freedom of the practitioner. The intention is not to just perfect poses but to establish a strong foundation of understanding of all 8 limbs of yoga, be able to practice, and transmit that knowledge compassionately and effectively to others. You will learn how to respond to your students' individual needs rather than how to just teach a set sequence (you'll get one of those too :)).
Training includes 11 weeks of robust content that you will work through at your own pace, start anytime, with support, on the following topics and more:
Science of Trauma and Resilience
8 Limbs of Yoga
Asana (posture) breakdown
Anatomy for yoga
Sequencing, Voice & Cues
Mentoring and Q&A sessions to support you along the way
Digital materials will be provided along with a suggested text and reading lists. Preprinted materials are available for a fee.

My experience with 12 Sparrows Yoga School and Claire was phenomenal! It was a very thorough and well-rounded training and experience. I felt completely safe, supported and encouraged throughout the process. I'm so grateful for the opportunity to have trained with Claire.
I searched for 2 years for a program that was culturally conscious, focused on empowerment and leadership, and led by someone who's knowledgeable. Claire delivered that and so much more, I left this course a whole new person.
A wonderful training that not only prepared me to teach yoga, but to live yoga. My experience in the program has positively impacted my life in a multitude of ways.
