What is Tadasana.Yoga Teacher Training?
Nearly 7 years ago I purchased Tadasana.Yoga in Park City. I had practiced yoga for over a dozen years, and as an experienced marketer I embraced the stewardship of the business, but I was not a yoga teacher. In order to truly walk my own talk, I immediately took a 200-hour teacher training program with Baron Baptiste. At his training, I saw immediately what the yoga teachers I knew were talking about: YTT is so much more than teaching. When I began to create a teacher training program here at Tadasana.Yoga, I sought the most experience trainers, including some who had worked extensively with Baptiste, to help craft our training program. You might be surprised to learn that the first step in creating a teacher training program is not to draft a syllabus, but instead, to examine what we stood for as a studio. Very quickly, our mission took shape: “to create happy communities, one student at a time.” It’s from this mission that our teacher training grows.
Who should do yoga teacher training?
The only people who should do yoga teacher training are those who want to see significant growth as leaders. Many people take training thinking they might like to teach some day. Many more have no intention of teaching at all. Many students join us to explore new ways to think and see the world, and ultimately open doors to new directions in their lives. If you would like to join the Tadasana.Yoga teaching staff, this is a great way to do it. If you aren’t interested in teaching, just come and change your life.
Why should I train with Tadasana.Yoga?
Yoga has become such a mainstream practice that yoga teacher training programs are found at nearly every studio. The Yoga Alliance is a national organization that provides a certification structure to ensure consistency and quality across yoga training programs. Tadasana.Yoga and most other quality training programs are certified by this organization. But at the end of the day, you want a program with extremely strong leaders, and a clear vision for your success as a student. Tadasana.Yoga’s trainers are highly experienced in the teaching of teachers. We know the training methodologies that will help you progress rapidly in our 200 hours together. We also have the skill to adjust the trainings to nature of each student and student group. Our goal is to ensure you see rapid and effective progress in the creation of a new you.
What’s involved in a training?
We meet for 6 weekends. Each weekend you will be engaged in one of these modalities: practice, inquiry, pose laboratory, meditation, anatomy, and practice teaching. And woven in and among those modalities are hours of gems – connections with your fellow students, a deeper connection to your physical practice, a new appreciation for your body, the challenges of teaching, and so much more. You will have some reading materials to help you go deeper, and we even take our classroom out into the woods.
Do I have to be an experienced yogi to take training?
Absolutely not. Many of our teacher training participants are very new to yoga.
Who can I speak to if I have questions?
We’re happy to answer your questions about YTT! Please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Recently I came across this interesting article in the Atlantic by Joe Pinsker reviewing a study of the size of American homes and the relative satisfaction levels of their owners. The conclusion? Larger homes don’t make people happier. This didn’t surprise me particularly, but it was interesting to see that questions like these are becoming worthy of the attention of researchers.
People living in rapidly-growing communities like Park City or Lehi won’t be surprised to learn that American homes are getting steadily larger. Between 1973 (when the Census Bureau started tracking home sizes) and 2015, the median size of a newly built house in the US has increased by nearly 1,000 square feet (from just over 1,500 square feet, to nearly 2,500).
Why do we keep making our homes bigger? The average family size has actually declined in that same time period (3.7 people per household in the 1970’s to 3.14 in 2018 according to the Census Bureau), so it isn’t a need to accommodate more people that’s driving the increase. Instead it appears that people still have a desperate need to keep up with or exceed the Joneses. But it doesn’t seem to give them the outcome they’re seeking.
In “The McMansion Effect”, Pinsker reviews a study by Clément Bellet, a postdoctoral fellow at the European business school INSEAD, and notes that “despite a major upscaling of single-family houses since 1980, house satisfaction has remained steady in American suburbs.” Bellet believes that this has to do with the problem of comparison (a common theme in our yoga classes.) In the case of houses, apparently people do generally say that their larger homes initially make them happy. The problem arises when someone moves into the neighborhood and builds a house bigger than yours. The initial pleasure doesn’t last.
The article goes on to discuss a number of other salient points around this issue, including:
- Wealth inequality: In the roughly thirty years from 1980 to 2009, Clément Bellet estimates “that the size of the largest 10 percent of houses increased 1.4 times as fast as did the size of the median house.” People in the middle who felt proud of the ‘large’ home they borrowed every penny to own 10 years ago may now find themselves even further behind.
- Subjective well-being: Large homes as a source of envy and disappointment are just the latest in a long list of “stuff” items that everyone feels they must have to be happy.
- Atomization of the American family: Gone are the days when everyone in the house had to gather together to watch a TV show, brush their teeth or play a game. With homes large enough for everyone to have their own space, they may gain some comfort, but also loneliness. In gargantuan homes, people barely have to interact.
To me, the most interesting lesson here is that even as practices such as yoga, meditation, and mindfulness are on the rise around the globe, and the lessons associated with these practices — such as ‘happiness doesn’t come from stuff’ — are widely acknowledged to be true, we are simply unable to walk the talk.
I’m guilty myself. Whether it’s my belongings, my wardrobe or my home, I still notice the far-too-frequent voice in my head that says, “theirs are nicer,” “mine is out-dated,” or “why don’t we have a media room?” It’s really quite astonishing how one can know intellectually that something is true (‘if I had that fancy dress, it would only make me happier for a short period of time’), and yet be frequently incapable of living that truth.
Fortunately, intellectual knowledge is the first step in the right direction. As with addiction recovery, in order to get off the hamster wheel of desire, you must first recognize that it isn’t the correct path to happiness. In fact, the answer lies within. You have an opportunity every minute of every day to choose happiness or suffering. The desire, jealousy, and frustration responses are just that: responses. They are not real, in and of themselves.
So when you find yourself looking at your neighbor’s home and thinking, “why don’t I have what they have?”, take a moment to recognize what your brain is doing (reacting) and then make a choice with your response. Which will make you happier: feeling envious, or feeling gratitude that you have a home in a lovely neighborhood, with a beautiful view, and the time to look around?
