What is Chromatic Yoga?

Chromatic Yoga is a systematic approach to teaching yoga that values community and authentic self expression at the highest. Chromatic Yoga classes are educational yet integrative, providing students with the oportunity to breakthough mental, physical, and emotional boundaries in order to find more freedom on and off the mat. 

Chromatic Trainings provide you with the necessary structure that underlies informative and transformative yoga classes, workshops and trainings. With each level of chromatic yoga you gain new skills that allow you to elevate your community of yogis. 

The Certification Process

To become a certified chromatic yoga teacher you must complete the level 1 training which allows you to use the name for public and private classes, giving you the title of “Chromatic Teacher”.

Each training prepares you for different aspects of teaching and holding space for students’ transformation. Level 2 provides you with the skills and techniques to take students on a deeper journey into self awareness through what we call a thematic through-line. Level 2 teahcers have the title of “Chromatic Leader” implying you have the skills to not only teach but lead groups on a journey beyond the physical.

Level 3  “Impact” is the highest level of training in the Chromatic system gruanting the title “Integrated Leader”. Integrated Leaders empower their students to step into their highest potential, making a greater impact on their lives and the world at large.

Note: As Chromatic Yoga builds globaly requirements will change in order to provide the utmost levels of quality to our community.

Required Pre-requisites 

1. Completion of a 200 Hour Training

2. At least 1 year of teaching experience

“Level 1 was an incredibly valuable, informative, and life changing experience.”

Sue Owrutsky

“Chromatic training with Matt is one of the best things I have done for myself as a yoga teacher. Matt has created something special; teachers from all around the world gather and learn together, not only from Matt, but from each other. Everyone in the group has different strengths and it encourages discussions and learning opportunities based on the different view points.”

Anthony Tomasi

Level 1: The Elements

This 5 Day training is designed for Yoga Teachers looking to expand their skillsets both as yogis and teachers. The Chromatic Yoga training is a highly structured approach to teaching that seeks to pull out the best in each teacher. My aim as the leader in these 5 days is to pull out the most authentic expression within each of you, and help you become the most powerful manifestation of yourself you can be. Rather than asking you to teach a certain style, Chromatic Yoga embraces the range of stylistic expression but helps each teacher to step into their fullest power!

Along with being open to a variety of stylistic expressions in asana, Chromatic Yoga Philosophy is also inclusive of various lineages. The one defining through-line that permeates the entire approach of Chromatic Yoga is our study and use of the Elements: Earth, Water, Fire, Air, Space. We use the elements as a basis for self reflection, personal growth, and transformation. The Elements are used as a guidance system as well as a communication tool which all Chromatic Yoga teachers study in order to strengthen the connection as a community. Community is one of the most highly valued aspects of this training. Each Level 1 Student will have a mentor to help support their individual growth and our collective growth as a community.

In the Level One Teacher Training You will Learn The Following:

  1. Anatomy – Mastering the ability to see “Joint Relationships” and learning how to decide which “Muscle Engagements” to emphasize in each posture
  2. Sequencing toward either a “Peak Pose” or “Peak Action”
  3. The Elements of Voice (level one) – Elements will also be applied to sequencing, practice, adjustments, coaching, and self reflection.
  4. Adjustment Philosophy, Guidelines, and Techniques
  5. Advancing Your Personal Practice

Reviews

Level 2 Testimonials

Chromatic training with Matt is one of the best things I have done for myself as a yoga teacher. Matt has created something special; teachers from all around the world gather and learn together, not only from Matt, but from each other. Everyone in the group has different strengths and it encourages discussions and learning opportunities based on the different view points. I love how the training is at Matt’s house; he literally opens up his home and makes you feel so welcome and comfortable. The training was perfect for my learning style as it is structured but informal; feels like a group of friends/teachers hanging out talking yoga for 5 days. Ive been teaching for about 9 years and only after training with Matt the last 2, do i really feel confident in my knowledge of the human body and what is going on anatomically in the poses. I would recommend this training to anyone with any teaching style or background!
Anthony Tomasi

Chromatic Senior Teacher

In Chromatic Yoga Level 2 we were able to build upon the skills gained in Level 1 and solidify our knowledge of the body. We took it to the next level by incorporating a thematic throug-line into our sequences to give students the opportunity to learn and grow beyond a physical level. Matt always makes sure to give enough time to practice the things learned and leaves no questions unanswered.
Level 2 does not only help to refine our teaching techniques, but focusses very strongly on personal development by coaching sessions (pairs and group). In these we were able to learn on both sides: as the teacher / coach as well as the student / mentee. Matt has the ability to hold space for emotional breakthroughs and offers a save and very warm environment to open and grow. Coaching tied our group very strongly together and I have made friends with amazing fellow yoga teachers from all over the world, with whom I am still in contact with today.
I left the Chromatic Training feeling empowered, more skillful as a yoga teacher and open-hearted.
Chromatic Yoga has taken my teaching as well as personal practice really to the next level, by educating undogmatically. The community of Chromatic Yogis offers love and support and I am very grateful for it.

Level 3: Integration

 

Integration is a term used for taking two or more separate components  and bringing them to work together in harmony. In Level 3 you learn how to take the Physical-Throughline (level 1) and the Thematic Throughline (level 2) and weave them through a class, workshop, retreat, or 3 day intensive.

In addition to mastering the through-lines, you will also become masterful at cuing isometric muscle engagements within each posture and being clear and concise in your delivery, in order to leave room for your theme.

Together we will take our coaching skills to the next level, supporting each other and developing the capacity to ask more, listen more, and say less. You will also develop the foundations of mentoring which blends coaching and teaching together, requiring greater skills and awareness.

Through coaching and being coached you will come to discover what your message is, and how to refine the delivery to your students. You will have daily practice giving dharma talks.

  • Pairing Physical and Thematic Through-lines
  • Masterful Verbal Cues
  • Structuring your business: Classes/workshops/retreats/intensives
  • Advanced Coaching and Mentoring
  • Elements of Voice Part 2: Delivering your Message

Information

Airport and Train

There are several airports you can fly into to get to Connecticut. We highly recommend flying in to JFK, or LGA for ease in getting to one of the Metro North Train stations.

The Train has two locations to depart from: Grand Central Station, or Harlem 125th St. The two destinations closest to Goshen CT via train are Waterbury and Wassaic. (45 min car ride)

The Bus  station is located at 42nd Street and 8th Avenue in Manhattan (Port Authority) and you can take the Peter Pan Bus line up to Torrington CT. Buses leave Manhattan twice a day at 9:30am and 5pm and arrive at 11:40am and 7:30pm. Torrington is only 10minutes from Our Little Farm so we highly recommend this option.

Rent a Car: Should you decide to rent a car (not included) you have the option to fly into Hartford CT (BDL) or Albany, Boston, or Westchester. If you use a company such as Enterprise Rent-a-Car or Hertz you will likely be able to return the car in Torrington, and we will pick you up from there. It may come in handy to keep the car for the duration of the training if you want the ease of being on your own.

International Flights
We suggest flying into JFK, LGA or Newark and staying over one extra night. Plan to arrive in the U.S.A 2 days prior to the training. Stay one night in NY and then take the 9:30am bus from the NYC Bus Station at 42nd St Port Authority to Torrington Connecticut (CT) on the “Arrival Day” of the training.

Example: If your training starts June 25th, land in NY June 23rd. Travel to CT on June 24th for the meet and greet and welcome Dinner.

Training Reviews

Chromatic 1 was an incredibly valuable, informative, life changing experience for me as a relatively new teacher.  I had the privilege of taking two classes a day from Matt, breaking them down after to better understand the anatomical alignment, the elements of voice and the options for incorporating these methods into my sequences The best feeling as a teacher is to guide students to a place they haven’t been before so THEY own the journey and the result.  This experience happens in almost every class I take with Matt and I know I am not alone.In addition, I met amazing teachers, with different styles,  from all over the world which are now a part of the same global community and I truly feel the love and support they bring. The warmth and generosity of Matt welcoming us into his home and farm made it extra special. The circle continues to grow and I am so grateful to be a part of it.. Can’t wait for Chromatic 2!!

Chromatic Level 1 brought together the most incredible community of yoga teachers from all over the world. Learning from each other with this collective goal of deepening our yoga practice felt like a once in a lifetime opportunity. I began the training with a very basic understanding of anatomy and left it with a much deeper knowledge of muscle actions and joint relationships. The way I sequence my classes is now much more purposeful and my students immediately noticed a difference upon my return from training.  The training was very well-rounded to include time to practice, teach, learn, meditate, and connect with each other. Matt makes you feel part of the chromatic community right away and will make sure you feel supported throughout the training. Can’t wait for Level 2!
