Here at Her Temple, we approach yoga a little... differently.

Kaity on beach

What is Somatic Yoga?!

Our approach to yoga is different than you might be used to.

Movement. Movement is medicine. Especially, conscious movement. By blending the arts of somatics and yoga, we. empower you to connect to your body’s wisdom above all else. While learning foundational yoga asana (postures) is a key portion of this training, it’s not the dominant focus. We explore intuitive and spontaneous movements that emerge from within, micro-movements, as well as primal movement patterns that support the functional integration of the entire body.

Meditation. Meditation is the foundation of where yoga comes from! We think of yoga as “meditation in motion.” Many forms of seated meditation work wonderfully for taking one “up and out.” In other words, meditation can be used to develop consciousness, spirituality, discernment, and connection to the Universe. We love this and also utilize forms of meditation designed to take one “down and in” – meaning meditation practices that are designed to help you connect more deeply to your body, humanity, emotions, and sensuality. 

Intuition. Many yoga practices can become prescriptive by nature. The yoga we teach is not. While this program provides a strong foundation and structure needed to understand how to safely and competently guide a group of humans through a yoga practice, we also teach how to awaken internal movement impulses, somatic intelligence, and intuitive yoga from within (known as sahaja)

Integration. We honor and respect the many powerful lineages from which yoga emerges and we have studied. This program is not strictly taken from any one lineage, and is an approach that INTEGRATES a myriad of ancient teachings and yoga practices with modern neuroscience

Feminine form. Many of the yoga practices we know today in the west were created by and for male bodies. This program is led by and for womxn, and we are carving a new path to explore how yoga emerges from and for the feminine form.

Trauma-informed. Being trauma-informed is not optional nowadays. This program has trauma-integration as a key pillar and foundation, and teaches a style of yoga that works WITH the nervous system rather than against it.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

This training is a deep dive into the embodied and enheartened path of teaching yoga for healers, movers, seekers, and feelers. In this immersive training, you’ll dive into all aspects of your yoga practice from asana and intuitive movement, to breathwork and meditation, to ayurveda, yoga psychology and more.

Develop a deep and resonant connection to your own Inner Being as a foundational pillar of your ever evolving yoga practice.

Activate your inner leadership skills to transmute these practices onward in the world with confidence, grace, and authenticity.

This is so much more than a yoga teacher training. It is an initiation designed to support you in stepping through the portals of the body, heart, and mind into your full power, purpose, and presence.

    “Kaity has a presence like no one I have ever met, she embodies what it means to be a true Yogini. She creates an incredible community for learning, growing, and sharing!”

    Are ready to elevate your yoga practice to the next level

    Yearn for more heart-connection, spiritual growth, and physical vitality

    Are a healer, leader, empath, or nurturer

    Envision yourself, in some way or form, sharing the art of yoga with your community

    Are ready to awaken your internal power, ownership, and self responsibility.

    Don’t fit in with traditional schooling or the popular culture, and feel a call to pave a new way and create community full of depth, authenticity, and belonging.

    This is not for you if...

    This program is not for those who…

    Do not have the time and energy for an immersive and deep program, designed to deeply transform all aspects of life

    Are not ready or willing to change

    Are not ready or willing to take ownership for their own emotional experience and life, and take the necessary and sometimes hard steps into more power

    Want a traditional yoga training focused on asana and fitness

    Are looking for a prescriptive and linear method of teaching, rather than an organic and intuitive process

    This course is intense and time consuming. There will be weekly coursework to be completed in between initiations. Please be ready and able to commit to the time and intensity of the program. If you wish to be certified via yoga alliance, no portions may be missed.

     

    Prerequisites:

    ✔ Experience and commitment to your own healing work
    At least one year of consistent yoga/dance/meditation/spiritual practice

    ✔A deep commitment to taking care of your body, heart, mine, & spirit

    Transformative, cathartic, inspirational, affirming, grounding, and luscious! I was told by friends that Yoga Teacher Training would change my life, but it was hard to understand what they meant. From this training, I gained family, community, connection, insight, and purpose. I have learned how to care for myself, how to show up with authenticity and heart, and how to share what I love about yoga with others. I never anticipated going on to be a teacher…and yet, now I feel compelled to find a way to continue to grow and learn. I long to give back!

    This has been an amazing, transformative yoga teacher training. It has given me more than what I ever expected. I found that my body is strong and capable, and that I can honor and love my body and not push so hard. The training was so well planned, organized, presented, led, and facilitated. It led me on a path to become my authentic self and more spiritually connected.

    Hi, I’m Kaity

    Thank you for your curiosity about our Somatic Yoga Teacher Training!

    I believe you’ve landed on this webpage and are called to this work for a reason.

    I was initiated into the journey of yoga and somatics during my personal process of healing from trauma and mental health imbalances. This work has been a game changer, not just for healing trauma but for allowing me to EXPAND into the vibrant woman I am today.

    Here at Her Temple, you are your own healer. Our Training simply offer you tools, support, guidance, and space for activating your healing super powers and sharing your gifts back with the world. 

    If you feel blocked in loving yourself deeply, feel stuck around manifesting your dreams into reality, want to have better sex and relationships, want to feel more passionately alive, want to help your body let go of chronic pain and tension,  and want to stop feeling small and powerless in your life, THEN this is the space for you.

    u

    How much homework is there between initiations?

    It amounts to 5-10 hours of course work per week.

    u

    u

    What is included in the Integrative Practicum & Mentorship?

    The practicum is the portion of the training where you’re invited to INTEGRATE all of the many skills you’ve learned and embodied through offering yoga classes to real-life students. There are 10 practicum hours required for certification.

    These hours are supported by group mentorship calls where you’ll be supported in continuing to refine your teaching skills, gain confidence in your teaching, and heal through the initiation of true embodied leadership. Think of this part of the program as the bridge that takes eases you from our immersive training container into your role as a teacher out in the world.

    These practicum hours must be completed by our final mentorship call (July, 2023).

    u

    How much of the course is online?

    I can't make the live-online classes and calls. Can I still participate?

    It is really important to prioritize being at the classes live, and if you’d like to be certified you will be required to attend at least 50% of all live-online classes, 100% of the mentorship calls, and 100% of in-person initiations. There will be practices and break-out groups that truly need to be experienced LIVE to make an impact.

    This Teacher Training was an amazing experience. Kaity’s grounded and caring personality really created a safe space for all of us to be authentically ourselves. Her presence allowed for me to be open. The training has definitely equipped me with the tools and knowledge to teach.

    Crystal Rose - Massachusetts

    I came to this training with an open heart and no expectation other than to receive and embrace everything that came my way. I have left with more than I could have ever dreamt of and friendships that many only dream of. Thank you Kaity, you have made me, me.

    Melissa Depascialis - England

    I feel more than prepared to teach and share this knowledge with students and seekers. Kaity’s breadth of resources and information was weaved seamlessly through the training at just the right time. Her ability to be present, transparent, and consistent was an integral part of the alchemical transformations that occurred in my personal experience and as I witnessed of other participants. I highly recommend this program for any yogi’s inspired to teach from a place of confidence and open-hearted service.
