Vinyasa Flow Yoga Teacher Training Course by Jodi Boone[Osaka]
About this course
Vinyasa Yoga is the art of combing fluid movement and breath.
Through Vinyasa, yoga becomes a moving meditation, a fluid dance.
Guided by breath, movement and music, we become completely absorbed in the practice.
Vinyasa Yoga focuses on feeling and breathing, it is an invitation to move from the mind and all of our mental activity, down toward our centers of feeling: which are our heart and navel centers. Learn how to teach creative and inspiring Vinyasa Yoga.
This training focuses on sequencing, voice and timing, breath, music and the art of assisting.
Essential to Vinyasa is creative and accessible sequencing. The sequencing must make sense to the body, or in other words, it must feel good. With Vinyasa Yoga there is a gradual unfolding that takes place. We move more and more deeply into our breath, into our postures and ultimately into ourselves. Learn how to sequence a Vinyasa Yoga class for Beginners, All Levels and Intermediate practitioners.
■Voice & Timing
Teaching Vinyasa Yoga is like taking your students on a journey. Within movement, you want your students to also experience stillness. This can be achieved through voice and timing. We must say enough to guide our students, but also allow space for students to experience themselves on a deep inner level. Through voice, we also share inspiration from our own experience, as well as by those who inspire us, by sharing quotes and readings during class. Learn how to use your voice and timing to expertly guide your students through a meditative, meaningful and interesting Vinyasa Yoga practice.
Music is a powerful tool and important aspect of Vinyasa Yoga. The music you choose will set the tone for your practice and create a certain feeling to your class. Learn how to choose music that accentuates your sequence and your voice, as well as follows the arc of the Vinyasa Yoga practice.
The breath, Ujjai, is the foundation of the Vinyasa yoga practice. How do you integrate guiding and cueing the breath within your class? How do you help students experience the power and meditative aspects of their own breath? Learn how to lay the foundation by helping students connect to their breath, supporting their Vinyasa Yoga practice fully.
■Art of Assisting
Touch is the language of the body, and as a yoga teacher you can assist your students in feeling their bodies, exploring asanas in a new way and guiding them more deeply or correcting their alignment with your hands. It takes skill to adjust students practicing Vinyasa Yoga, which is a moving and flowing practice. Learn how to connect with each student through touch that is safe, helpful and that feels good in their bodies.

Jodi feels that yoga is a precious gift and one of the greatest influences in her life. Initially drawn to yoga for the physical benefits of becoming stronger and more flexible, she soon realized there was something even more profound than the effect it was having on her body. Yoga deeply touched her heart, spirit and mind.
Practicing yoga for many years led Jodi to seek teachers and teachings in many places, close to home in Seattle, as well as in many parts of the world. Yoga became her passion, in addition to the work she was doing with different nonprofit organizations as a grant writer.
Drawn to sharing yoga with others, Jodi began teaching in 2001. Since, she has continued her studies by taking numerous teacher training courses, workshops and retreats. The path also led Jodi to become a certified pre-and postnatal instructor and labor support doula. She has also studied yoga's sister science, Ayurveda. Jodi offers trainings in Pre and Postnatal Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga and Foundations in Ayurveda annually in Osaka, Japan. Recently, Jodi spent six years in Goa, India where she co-directed a yoga retreat center and taught teacher trainings and community yoga classes.
With a background in Iyengar, Vinyasa and Ananda yoga, a devotional style of yoga based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda, Jodi draws from these traditions to create a fluid and meditative practice. She teaches to inspire others to experience yoga within all aspects of ourselves, creating a sense of wholeness among our hearts, bodies, minds, spirits and hearts. This sense of wholeness or oneness also dissolves our sense of separation from others. She encourages students to go inward; nourishing themselves, deepening their intuition and honoring the divine within.
Jodi hold a Bachelor's Degree in Liberal Arts and a Master's Degree in Nonprofit Leadership. Her yoga training includes completing the Ananda YTT, Seattle Holistic Center's Hour Pre-and Postnatal YTT, Brahmani Yoga's Advanced YTT, Baron Baptiste's Level I and II Power Vinyasa YTT, as well as trainings with Seane Corn and Shiva Rae. She has also completed the Silver Age YTT to teach yoga to seniors. Additionally, Jodi has been a lead teacher on the Brahmani Yoga YTT, in Goa, India, Shakti Spirit YTT, in Goa, India and Ubud, Bali and Spirit Yoga's YTT in Osaka, Japan. She also teaches prenatal yoga on the Be Luminous YTT in Seattle, WA.
Her Ayurveda training includes studying at the Ayurvedic Natural Health Center in Goa, India, completing Dr. Robert Svoboda's Ayurveda correspondence course through the Ayurveda Institute, Rasovai Massage School in Goa, India, attending a workshop with Dr. Vasant Lad through Bastyr and she is currently enrolled in the Ayurveda program at Kerala Academy. Jodi is also an LMP, graduating from Cortiva School of Massage in Seattle, WA.
Jodi is most grateful to her teachers: Lisa Black, Gyandev McCord, Diksha McCord, Julie Martin, Johm Weddepohl, Colette Crawford and Emil Wendel.
