This is for people who are interested in becoming teachers of Spinefulness. You will learn the guidelines that are the core curriculum of Foundations. Along with this you will learn how to put your hands on students to guide them to greater comfort and ease. Throughout you will be "teaching" and "checking" and being checked by fellow students so your own Spinefulness continues to deepen. By viewing the power point presentations embedded in Foundations and by examining the alignment of other students your visual comprehension of Spinefulness expands exponentially. Teachers accumulate hours towards their certification at their own pace.
When 120 hours are accumulated you are ready for the apprenticeship program
Fees towards teacher certification: $60/class
TEACHER PRACTICE CLASSES (WED | 6-7:30 pm)
These classes are for teachers; the class focuses on them, not teaching necessarily. Classes should be taken as a set of five. Teachers may wish to pair this class with the Teacher Training class that immediately follows it, which focuses on teaching techniques and Spinefulness practices.
Fees for certified teacher: Drop-in $25 or $200/10 classes
Fees towards teacher certification: $45/class
