The aim of the Strozzi Institute Teacher Training Program (SITT) is to develop depthful and embodied teachers of Strozzi Institute’s methodology who carry forth our living lineage. The SITT participants are prepared to teach Strozzi Institute’s Embodied Leadership programs, our certified Somatic Coaching Program and within our corporate partnerships.
Our teachers are the embodiment of Strozzi Institute and our work in the world – expressing our mission, our methodology, our brand and our best practices. We take our teacher development seriously, and love doing it!
We are seeking a next generation of embodied leaders to meet the growing demand for our corporate and organizational trainings, as well as public coaching and leadership courses. Through a rigorous program of study and a committed community of practice, this program allows us to develop embodied teachers who can bring the transformational power of Strozzi Institute into our public and corporate offerings.
We seek seasoned facilitators with experience and competence in one or more of the following domains:
All qualified applicants, including people of color, women, LGBTQ identified individuals, differently-abled and those from all class backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.
The path of embodied transformation is a methodology that someone develops into over time. As such, the SITT program is not a one-time three hundred hour teacher certification. Nor is it a training-of-trainers for consultants to bring somatics into their individual work or projects. Rather, we are building a team of committed teachers who can competently teach the Strozzi Institute’s somatic methodology to leaders, teams, organizations and coaches, and be a compelling representative of Strozzi Institute in years to come. We serve multiple constituencies, including: sustainable business, benefit corporations, and corporate partnerships; as well as the fields of coaching, leadership development and personal transformation. Strozzi Institute and our teachers, together, forward the field of somatics.
Strozzi Institute Teacher Training is a multi-year path, and includes intensive development with Strozzi Institute senior teachers.
The program includes three 4-day in-person SITT trainings (12 days total) per year at The Dojo in Petaluma. The training sessions include:
We recommend that Teacher Training candidates complete a minimum of two courses at the Strozzi Institute, including an Embodied Leadership Level One course and one of the additional courses listed below. This will assist you in experiencing the methodology, teachers and study body while deepening your own leadership embodiment.
