Certified Yoga Teacher Training

It started several months ago and we're so close to finishing this project! The syllabus and lessons plans have been fine tuned and the teaching staff engaged.

The Studio is in the process of certification with Yoga Alliance as a Yoga Alliance approved teaching school. This will ultimately result in bringing the 200 hour certified teacher training program (Yoga Alliance) to the area.

The course will run every 2nd weekend (Friday 6-9 p.m and Saturday & Sunday from noon- 6:30 p.m) and will run for 7.5 months. Several modules will be instructed by different yoga teachers specializing in a particular yogic discipline and by professionals with a background in anatomy and physiology.

This is a 200 hour course, geared toward health and wellness practitioners as well as those wanting to expand their theoretical and practical knowledge of Yoga for health and healing and to teach yoga.

Program Overview
Yoga as a complimentary system for health, healing and personal development.
Yoga history, philosophy and theoretical frameworks and models of health.
Theory, functions and techniques of asana (postures), pranayama (breath practices) and dhyana (meditation).
Teaching Yin, pre-natal, power and children yoga programs.
Supporting Yoga practices such as ahara (diet), vihara (lifestyle), sound, mental attitudes etc…
Techniques of observation and practical application.
Participants can expect, by the end of this program, to have a solid foundation in Yoga theory, application, tools and practices and the ability to tailor yoga practices in their specific fields and be eligible for registration as a RYT.
