Buti® 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training
ABOUT BUTI 200 HR YTT:
Our Yoga Alliance accredited program certifies you to teach Vinyasa Flow, Hot Yoga and Buti Yoga. Upon successful completion of the program, testing and demonstration you will receive your 200 HR YTT certificate to be eligible for YA 200 RYT designation.
This dynamic yoga methodology focuses on the interconnectedness between the physical body ( anatomy & physiology), emotional body (socio-emotional development through the lens of Chakra Diagnostics) and energetic body ( Chakra system, Nadis, Koshas and their connection to the endocrine system ). Throughout the 5 month program, we teaching concepts and tools via visual, auditory and kinesthetic means to ensure proper assimilation of knowledge for all students. Each 200 HR training takes place over (5) Friday to Sunday weekends, held once a month for 5 consecutive months at your training location.
We consistently relate our yogic knowledge back to Chakra diagnostics to emphasize the interconnectedness of physical, psychological and energetic structures involved in the practice. We empower students to breakthrough self-destructive patterns that may affect their day to day lives as well as inevitably impact their leadership skills as a yoga practitioner.
Unit 1 begins with The Practice + History of Yoga—students understand and discuss yoga lineages and the unique qualities that define each style. We then move to Yoga- The Effects on the Systems of the Human Body, including an overview of how each bodily system is affected by the practice of Yoga. In Breathing + Beyond, we explore pranayama and the basic principles of physical and energetic anatomy. Unit 1 concludes with 2-Days of Buti Certification.
We begin Unit 2 exploring each Yoga Pose and Sanskrit. The Foundations of Hatha Yoga are reviewed pose by pose including Standing, Seated and Twisting Poses. Students will be tested on both energetic + physical anatomy in this Unit. We then dive deeper dive into the Chakra system including Chakras, Koshas and Nadis and their relationship with the nervous and endocrine systems. Unit 2 focus is on static anatomy and physiology; identification methods tested are physical touch and visual through fill-in-the-blank. Common misalignments and how to correct form for each pose in our Foundations of Hatha section will be taught and practiced in pairs along with building the foundation for proper cueing.
Unit 3 delves deeper into movement anatomy and physiology. We begin to understand how physical structures interact with energetic structures in the application and practice of dynamic asana. Students will also complete a body pathology segment which helps students learn how to scan posture and alignment to determine muscle weakness, injury or postural abnormality. Unit 3 will finish with pose prescription, sequencing and hands-on adjustments. Demonstration of concepts taught will be conducted in pairs.
Unit 4 begins with student volunteers for the Chakra Diagnostics work with Directed Storytelling®. Upon completion and socratic-method discussion, the course moves on to Leadership Styles + Application. This unit empowers students to determine what type of teacher they wish to become and which leadership style best suits their goal. We compare and contrast yoga teachers from past to present to gain a deeper understanding of the spectrum of yoga instruction. On day 3 of this unit, we focus Thai Massage and savasana adjustments and etiquette. Students focus their time on creative sequencing and practice for their final testing unit.
Unit 5 Students explore muscle testing and engagement with a partner. The Final Exam takes place over 2 days and includes teaching demo, cumulative written exam and partner cueing and adjustment assessment.
