A lot of time and space for self practice and self study, it's your own journey inwards.
If you are a yogi who wants to develop your own commitment for a daily practice, and want to pull yourself out of your comfort zone to stand up and start teaching in your own authentic way, this is the course for YOU!
Noah McKenna has a huge range of knowledge and experience to share :)
Noah's Teachings are really about sharing his knowledge and giving you an experience during the practice
There is a manual that Noah gives at the beginning of the course. But preferably making use of your own notebook.
The program really soothes the purpose of this TTC, preparing you to be an amazing teacher!

A modern approach to a traditional practice
Noah has a very clear methodology and professional approach that will teach you how to teach a class
Noah is the Teacher of this course who shares his knowledge during the asana, meditation, philosophy and theory classes
The Teachings are based on the Hatha & Vinyasa principles. Noah created his own sequence that he is sharing, which balances the feeling of contraction and relaxation in the body. With the therapeutic background from Noah it is an amazing sequence that feels whole.
Learning the art of teaching is the main aspect of Noah’s course. Noah offers the methodology of getting comfortable with teaching right from the start of the course. Diving deeper into teaching to start to teach small parts of an yoga sequence which will become more and more along the way. It directly pulls you out of your comfort zone, and really lets you to get to know your own authentic styl of teaching. Noah creates a safe environment to make this beautiful journey together with the group.
Say what is real! Learning how to make everything what you are saying as a teacher kind of similar to what the ones you teach are experiencing. To bring it as close as possible to that experience.
Be devoted as a teacher, be connected with your self and the ones around you. As a teacher let teaching be your yoga. When you are true to your authentic self words start flowing, you become a channel. Than as a teacher you can create magic.
In the beginning of the course, Noah is giving a strong foundation of an asana sequence which he created. More and more he will take a step back, so you and your self can go deeper into being in the practice. With this strong foundation you will develop your own practice that will sooth all aspects of you. With this, being committed to your self, to give yourself this present every day no matter what.
Being in an asana. Noah’s teachings are very solid and bring focus to the subtle sensations. Subtle sensation is what we are looking for, it connects you more into the experience and brings you into deep concentration. Deep focus, where everything else starts to dissolve.
Noah makes yoga anatomy understandable, in his way of teaching you want to get to know more and more about the human body. Noah brings a huge knowledge in anatomy with his background studies and experience. He makes smart choices in how to share his knowlegde, he is humble an careful. Always sharing both sides of what could be true. The pro’s and the no’s in certain situations, all situations are different. In anatomy his focus is on learning not to project perfectionism as realism, not everyone can do everything. He is empowering to make the right choices for your own unique body instead.
Experiencing the pranayama classes are simply amazing. Noah shares a variety of pranayama and meditation exercises. Learning different tools to control the breath. If you can control the breath, you can control the mind, if your mind is under control you can control your life. Knowing how to get energized, how to create calmness and bring healing into your system.
Feeling the energy flowing in different ways.
Dive into the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. During the philosophy classes Noah explains about the Yoga Sutras in a clear way, open for discussion. What is Yoga?
Step by step understanding the more spiritual side of yoga, and how to make parts (which resonate with you) of the Yoga Sutras your own.
Being a witness, witnessing the witness, got it? ;)
Getting to know different body types and experiencing how to make adjustments soothing for each body type during the asana practice. Noah teaches to adjust with awareness and connection.
Creating a balanced Yoga sequence, with the examples of sequencing that Noah is giving for a guided class. Making the sequence and the movements a meditation, with consciousness, attention and awareness. Getting an understanding how speed influences the experience. The faster the movement - the faster the mind. A calm movement - a calm mind. To slow down in the sequence it will create focus. Integrate it skillfully, so the sequence can have a solid base to get into your body. When you don’t have to think about the sequence anymore, it starts to flow. It starts flowing with the sensations, and start flowing with life.
I don't know. if someone ask you a question about their body or experience, get comfortable with these words.
Yoga practice is always experimental. Encourage the ones you teach to take responsibility for their own yoga experiment. Teach them to start listening to their own unique body, seeing the asanas as an experiment and a challenge to feel what is serving them and what is not.

My journey into Yoga began in with regular Iyengar Yoga classes in my hometown of Adelaide. Right away I dropped all competitive sports having found the form of physicality which made me feel just right. During the first trip to India in 1995 began a traditional practice of Ashtanga Vinyasa in an old monastery in Mysore. Though it was when I started a regular daily meditation and pranayama routine in 2003 that I became grounded in Yoga, able to reliably produce a balanced state of mind. From 1989 it took me 10 years of Asana practice before I felt comfortable to start teaching classes I considered worthwhile for students, I was fortunate to have many talented teachers.
Parallel to my personal enquiry into Yoga Ive deeply involved in complementary medicine. I completed a degree in Medical Science and a Postgraduate qualification in Chiropractic. Studied Acupuncture in China and many forms of physical therapy. Taken a post graduate course in Clinical Nutrition and explored Breath-work and Transpersonal Psychology. Reading list devoted to Neuroscience the last 5 years.
Based in India since 2003 and annually travelling as a guest teacher to many schools internationally. Certified Teacher Trainer at the E-RYT 500 level with Yoga Alliance since its inception in 2003. Certified as a Yoga Therapist with IAYT and will be an IAYT approved Therapist Trainer faculty member in 2018. Maintained a private practice as a multi-modal Yoga Therapist for many years specialising in yoga related injuries and rehabilitation.
Teaching Yoga has been one of the greatest treasures this life has given me. There is something very special about being in that central role of both channel and conductor. Baking in that oven many years the proof of the pudding for me has been the development of a deep sense of trust. Finding the balance between between creativity and discipline never too wet never too dry. I believe self development begins with self acceptance, then slowly and incrementally change becomes tangible. Sharing these powers has taken my trust-sense to a higher plane.
My own practice has been changing over the decades. The first 15 years I devoted myself to what my teachers had shown me. The necessity of a good teacher is invaluable. That said I believe creativity to be the ideal partner of discipline. The last decade the forms I work with are evolving more and more in Asana, Pranayama and in Meditation. Practical wisdom is intelligently directed creativity. Simple changes in techniques can resolve many issues. By setting personal priorities about what to practice, how to practice it and how to progress. the practice and especially what not to practice balance comes into focus.
