In the fall of 2020, Men Care Now launched its first 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training Certification done completely virtual with participants all around the country. Giovanni was asked the join the team as the biomechanics lead.
Having lived in the high-octane world of finance in New York and coming into contact with many diverse types of men living in what some would call a stressful city, MCN CEO Nicolas de Alejo decided to formulate tools and programs for helping men grow, heal, cope, develop and excel. Giovanni was honored to be asked to join the team as the biomechanics lead, along with top health and wellness experts Mike Okech, Loren Fishman, M.D., Aaron Powell, Ernesto Lira De La Rosa and others. Together, they bring their diverse knowledge, energy and passion working with men to help Nic create an approach to needed behavioral and physical change. Men Care Now is a platform for mind and body, helping men achieve physical and mental fitness for a healthy state of being. Since things affect men differently than women, and men experience and are exposed to different pressures and difficulties, the Men Care Now platform focuses strictly on men’s physical and mental fitness.
This program embodies the traditional aspects of yoga and allows many perspectives to drive the ancient wisdom of the practice of yoga. By exploring the practice from many perspectives, students are able to create a deeper connection to the practice while also understanding more about other experiences and how they might be unique or similar to their own. The course covers yoga teacher training live, video study and partner work, and also includes additional opportunities to learn through books, journaling and homework. The assignments are embedded throughout the training and both Google Classroom and Zoom are used.
The next MCN 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training cohort begins in March 2021.
