"Yoga doesn't just change the way we see things; it transforms the person who sees."

~ B.K.S. Iyengar

"What is Level One?"

The Baptiste Power Yoga Level One: Journey Into Power certification training is a transformative, life-changing journey that will ignite your passion for the practice and equip you with the tools to share that transformation with others.

Baptiste Yoga has been one of the most recognizable brands in Yoga since 1940. In that time, we've created thousands of instructors worldwide. 

We train our instructors how to unleash their inner strength, power, and purpose, and propel themselves toward realizing their full potential.

In Level One: Journey Into Power... 

You will delve deep into the fundamentals of Baptiste Power Yoga, learn to sequence dynamic and challenging classes, and develop a mastery of hands-on adjustments and modifications.

With an emphasis on alignment and mindfulness, Level One: Journey Into Power will provide you with the skills and confidence to help students of all levels and abilities move beyond their limits and tap into their own inner power. 

And that's not all.

As a graduate of this program, you will also gain a newfound sense of self-assurance and self-awareness that extends far beyond the mat. Your newfound confidence will shine through in your teaching, and in all areas of your life.

And if you're wondering... 

"How is it Different?"

Baptiste Yoga journeys beyond physical exercise.

Yoga has been practiced for thousands of years, originating in ancient India as a holistic approach to physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. At Baptiste Yoga, we honor this rich history and philosophy, and our program is grounded in these traditional roots.

Our approach to yoga views the body as a holistic and perfect entity. By reshaping and integrating the physical structure, we create balance with gravity for functional strength and flexibility in daily life. This goes beyond just physical exercise to promote a deeper understanding of the mind-body connection and the benefits of a more holistic approach.

The practices and techniques we use aim for a positive mindset and strive for the best outcomes. They are hands-on, self-empowering, and invigorating, leading to lasting life-changing results. Baptiste Yoga incorporates traditional techniques such as breath work, meditation, and inquiry to create a holistic practice.

"What are the 3 Essential Practices and Techniques of Baptiste Yoga?"

Asana, Meditation, and Inquiry make up the 3 Essential Practices and Techniques of Baptiste Yoga.

Asana: The Journey Into Power

The Baptiste Power Yoga approach transforms the body through natural, effective, and efficient axial movements in the Journey Into Power Sequence.

The 11 sequences in Journey Into Power each have their own intention and integrate elements such as drishti, breath, core power, lines of action, whole-body integration, muscle action, range of motion, flexibility, speed of action, work, power, and freedom.

The postures are fluid, functional, universal, and essential and use bodyweight as resistance, performed with a wave-like contraction and expansion from the core to the extremities and back to Tadasana, the reference point or true north.

Meditation: A Path to Awareness and Empowerment
Meditation is more than "sitting still".

In the Baptiste Methodology, it's a path to mental and emotional well-being that leads to a new, empowering perspective.

When you separate internal thoughts and emotions from present experiences, you can live an even more fully awake and aware life. In Level One: Journey Into Power, you explore the mind-body connection with Baron Baptiste.

In the end, you tap deeper into your inner power to create lasting change in all areas of your life.

Inquiry: The Art of Self-Reflection
The art of self-reflection that goes beyond the physical.

Through rigorous self-examination, you'll find greater health, freedom, and power in all areas of your life.

With the Baptiste Methodology, you'll experience a profound shift in your life as you discover how to be at peace with what is and take effective action in the areas that matter most.

Through Inquiry, you'll gain a deeper understanding of yourself and your place in the world, leading to a more fulfilling and empowered life.
