Created for yoga teachers who received their 200-Hour certification in a program outside of the ISHTA lineage, the Bridge Program consists of approximately 26 hours of lectures given by Yogiraj Alan Finger and senior ISHTA teachers. For teacher trainees coming to ISHTA from another yoga school, the Bridge Program is a requirement for entrance into the 300-Hour program. The Bridge Program is also a great option for practitioners who are interested in deepening their knowledge of yoga and the ISHTA lineage without enrolling in the full teacher certification program.
The Bridge lectures include:
- Entry/Bonding Circle
- What Is ISHTA?
- ISHTA Tantra
- ISHTA Alignment/Intro to the 7 Segments
- ISHTA Kriya Yoga
- Introduction to Energetic Bodies
- Pranayama Techniques 1: FCB, Apa Japa, Ujjayi, Krama
- Intro to Essential Oils
