That voice that doesn’t use words may be what brought you to this page. You’ve been doing yoga for a while now, fall more in love with the practice each day, and are ready to see what’s next for your yoga journey. Or you’re interested in moving from a yoga student to a yoga teacher and can’t wait to get in front of a class for the first time. Whatever brought you to this page, listen to it, and read on.
This training will give you the tools, knowledge and experience to deepen your own yoga practice, as well as confidently teach classes in a variety of styles and formats. Specifically, you will leave this training with:
Beginning on the first day of training, you will be teaching. You will teach to your fellow trainees, you will teach to your instructors, and you will teach in live studio classes. As Robert Ringer writes, “If you want to become good at something, do it as often as possible. If you want to become an expert at it, do it every day.” Not only will you teach throughout the training, but you will learn to teach in your voice. Through constant coaching, training and guidance, you will leave this training confident and powerful in your own authentic teaching style.
Our goal for this program is to not only develop yoga teachers but also develop leaders who are powerful in their own life and in their own community. A significant portion of this training will be dedicated to self-discovery and empowerment work. Trainees will also examine yoga as service and be tasked with developing a community-focused yoga project.
Prospective trainees should be practicing yoga for a minimum of one year. You do not need to know Sanskrit terms or alignment cues– that’s why you are attending training. You do not need to be able to do a headstand or touch your toes – that’s not what makes a good yogi or a good yoga teacher. What we require is a 100% commitment from you from Day #1 to graduation. You are ready for it if you commit to showing up powerfully for 200 hours – you are ready just as you are right now.
Saturdays will run from 7-8pm and Sundays from 7am-5pm.
