Build the confidence to teach anywhere in the world. Learn to sequence unique classes that are both creative and smart.
NEXT START DATE SEPTEMBER 2021
The SÅANA method online – foundations program is designed to build your knowledge, teaching experience, and personal practice. Training will prepare you to teach SAANA’s signature classes – classic & flow – and challenge you to build off those class structures to explore movement and sequencing. From there, you’ll be able to harness your new-found knowledge and confidence to take your teaching anywhere.
Our online trainings are designed for those looking for the flexibility to design their studies around their own schedules. Training will equip you with the tools needed to sequence intelligently and creatively – and to teach and support your students effectively.
After the completion of SÅANA method online – foundations, you will receive your 200-hour YTT certification.
SÅANA method online foundations & SÅANA method blended foundations consist of the same curriculum content, offered in different formats
“The online format is not only accessible while working full time, it is an in depth learning experience. We were taught how to think, how to be, and how to find our own voice.
The team is available, compassionate and intelligent. I highly recommend this training”
