About


300-HOUR YTT WITH MEGHAN CURRIE | INTRINSIC GENIUS | THE VISION

in·trin·sic: belonging to the essential nature of a thing; occurring as a natural part of something

genius: an exceptional natural capacity of intellect

Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.

Albert Einstein

Our personal Sadhana and teaching practice have the power to connect us to our authentic core. Here we ignite our self-trust and reclaim our innate wisdom. By diving deep into the intelligence of our body-mind and integrating fragmented pieces, there is an opportunity to alchemize fear into possibility and open curiously to the adventure of our life.

When we accept the unknown and embrace the mystery, we can allow life to unfold moment by moment. From this place of trust and connection, our own Intrinsic Genius begins to emerge and we step into the flood stream of creativity, spontaneity, and flow.

In this three-part advanced teacher training, we will combine a deep exploration of personal practice with advanced skill-building sessions to propel your development as a professional yoga instructor and student. Your growth will be supported by studies in inspired cueing, advanced anatomy, Vedantic philosophy, neuroscience, meditation, sequencing, theming, self-study, and breathwork. By combining rich inner work with technical craft, you will be empowered to skillfully conduct the many layers of the class experience with confidence, integrity, and authenticity.

Join Meghan Currie for her new 300-hour teacher training program, Intrinsic Genius. This three-part YTT is composed of three 100-hour modules that will support 200-hour teachers to unearth their own Intrinsic Genius and authentic teaching voice. Take each part alone to advance your education, or take all three and earn your 300-hour certification.

To believe your own thought, to believe what is true for you in your own private heart…that is genius…

Emerson

Curriculum


Note: these three modules that together make a 300-hour teacher training do not need to be taken sequentially. Each module will excavate and explore a particular aspect of the practice to help teachers deeply embody those teaching principles.

MODULE 1 | 100-HOUR | 2022 | AUGUST 31 – SEPTEMBER 10

SEQUENCING & SADHANA

Everything can be sadhana. The way you eat, the way you sit, the way you stand, the way you breathe, the way you conduct your body, mind and your energies and emotions – this is sadhana. Sadhana does not mean any specific kind of activity, sadhana means you are using everything as a tool for your wellbeing.

Sadhguru

Without the support of embodied experience, new ideas and teaching can become limited due to a disconnect between the body and mind. When information has been experienced, felt, and digested, what is shared becomes potent and resonant as it’s shared from a place of deep knowing.

Sadhana is the devoted practice that brings us deep into the intelligence of our body. It’s there where we digest our experiences with breath and awareness, and always leave our mats transformed in some way. Our sadhana practice is the personal university where we have the opportunity to continuously learn something new about ourselves and life as a whole. From this place of experience, we have the opportunity to translate our learnings and share them with others from a place of deep knowledge. Our personal sadhana informs our teaching, inspiring insight that we can communicate with authenticity..

Sequencing and Sadhana is a rich discovery and uncovering of the truths that are born from within your practice. In this 100-hour journey, you will engage in concentrated studies in sequencing, theming, neuroscience, pranayama, and meditation. By positioning these technical studies within a greater experience of your personal practice, you will integrate new understandings of how to lead from your authentic core. 


THE EXPLORATION

  • Enrich and advance your personal yoga through deep, juicy, immersive practices.
  • Learn to create your own unique sequences in Meghan’s signature vinyasa style.
  • Develop your authentic and empowered teaching voice by blending sequencing skills with intuitive exploration.
  • Integrate your sadhana into your daily life through personalized and consistent practices; explore how your sadhana is a pathway for personal development. 
  • Explore Vedantic Philosophy and its application in practice and life. 
  • Learn how you can use the tools of the practice (asana, pranayama, mudra, and meditation) to impact the body’s nervous system.

  • Increase your trust in your own inner wisdom and gain confidence in your teaching.

MODULE 2 | 100-HOUR | 2022 | SEPTEMBER 28 – OCTOBER 8

INSPIRED COMMUNICATION & EXPERIENTIAL ANATOMY

When we communicate, we are painting pictures and sculpting realities with our language. To paint a powerful picture, we must have a clear internal vision of what we’re trying to convey. We build and clarify this internal vision through our own embodied experience, which we can then translate and transmit to our students through our cueing.

Studying anatomy is about more than learning the muscles and bones; it is about recognizing our own holistic, multi-dimensional embodiment. When we integrate anatomical knowledge experientially, we develop an inspired and organic ability to communicate a new depth of understanding.

Through your personal practice, you will build a three-dimensional library of language, metaphor, and imagery that can spark new realizations in your students.

THE EXPLORATION

  • Enrich and advance your personal yoga through deep, juicy, immersive practices.
  • Develop your own internal library of metaphor, imagery, and creative language that you can draw from to expand your teaching and cueing.
  • Through a deep dive into experiential anatomy, learn to specifically and clearly cue the physical body in asana using anatomical terminology.
  • Learn to skillfully educate your students in practice through creatively linking anatomical and figurative cueing. 
  • Explore Vedantic Philosophy and its application in practice and life. 
  • Learn to sculpt your communication in order to create inspirational classes for your students and elevate your relationship with yourself and others; explore how your communication is a pathway for personal development. 
  • Increase your trust in your own inner wisdom and gain confidence in your teaching.

MODULE 3 | 100-HOUR | 2022 | OCTOBER 26 – NOVEMBER 5

BREATHFLOW METHOD, THEMING & THE SUBTLE BODY

By cultivating breath awareness, we intensify the potency of each moment and bring greater presence, appreciation, and enjoyment into our lives. Our personal practice is the cauldron where we grow our breath awareness and increase our sensitivity to feel the breath’s powerful effects. Breath-centered yoga practices are a porthole into another realm of movement. When we learn to ride the breath, each movement can become like surfing. Much like surfing, riding the breath takes skill, patience, and practice to learn. In this module, we explore the elements and specific practices that are key to becoming expert breath riders. In our teaching we are then able to lead our students to work with the breath, creating breath-centered practices that are nourishing, grounding, and holistic.

There are many varied maps from different traditions of the subtle body, each with its own wisdom to impart. In this module, we will focus on the chakra and Vayu systems as they relate to our physical asana practice and our state of mind-body. Using a practical approach, we will examine how these subtle aspects, when used intentionally in practice, can positively influence our state of being. 

Theming is the emanating essence of a class that can create profound transformation. Themes that are rich, multi-faceted, and most importantly authentic, illuminate inner connections and insights that elevate, uplift, and inspire.  This powerful effect makes theming not only an art but the heartbeat of a powerful class. In this module, we take an immersive quest to discover and refine the art of theming from our authentic core. We will look at how to create classes that radiate a theme, intertwining the elements of learned knowledge, intuition, and intrinsic wisdom.

THE EXPLORATION

  • Enrich and advance your personal yoga through deep, juicy, immersive practices.
  • Learn how to “ride the breath,” where you will engage with the breath’s power to guide physical movement as well as still the fluctuations of the mind.
  • Share the art of “riding the breath” with your students by teaching breath-centered vinyasa practices.
  • Create powerful and authentic themes from a place of personal connection and intuition; learn to make the theme the heartbeat of the practice.
  • Explore Vedantic Philosophy and its application in practice and life. 
  • Describe the anatomical function of breath and the structures of respiration.
  • Practically integrate breathwork into your daily life to support your health and well-being.
  • Develop your understanding of the subtle body and explore its influence on your state of being; explore how the chakra system can provide a roadmap for personal development.
  • Experience how asana and breathwork can help support the health of the subtle body and explore how you may integrate these practices into your teaching.
  • Increase your trust in your own inner wisdom and gain confidence in your teaching.
