First Saturday of Each Month • Opening a New Theme
*Live Zoom | 8am-12pm PST
An overview of the month’s material, and an orientation to the learning objectives for the theme and topics. This four-hour session will include didactic presentations, asana practice, meditation, pranayama, break-out groups, and discussion.
Every Tuesday • Shared Learning Session
*Live Zoom | 7am-8:30am PST
This weekly class brings more focus onto a particular aspect of yoga, including anatomy, philosophy, Q&A, and learning assessment.
Twice a Month Thursday • Guided Yoga Class
*Live Zoom | 7am-8:30am PST
We'll explore asana, pranayama and meditation together as a cohort. Initially this weekly session will be led by BRF faculty. Eventually this will be where students are invited to practice their teaching. Finally, this will be where students offer their practicum class and receive feedback from instructors and peers.
At Your Pace • Self-Study Practice
Our course will have a dedicated online classroom space where we will post recordings of archived live Zoom sessions, additional resources, and written homework assignments. Throughout the month you will be invited into self-guided explorations of nature, awareness, required reading and personal yoga practice. Together we will create a brave space of accountability where each person is uniquely unfolding their own journey in community. You can expect approximately 3-4 hours of self-study per week.
*Live Zoom sessions will be recorded and archived for the duration of the course. If you are unable to attend a session, you will be able to review it later at your convenience. However, live attendance is encouraged, and a minimum number of synchronous learning hours is required for certification.
