This special summer program of Yoga study provides the 200 hours of study required by the Yoga Alliance for certification as a Yoga teacher. It is the same program as our year-long program (please read about our one year program below), but condensed into 12 weeks instead of 12 months. Training dates: June 5 through August 23.
There is no prerequisite training, experience or ability needed. As in our year-long program, some join to deepen their practice only, and others join with the intention to teach. The components of the program include Yoga Philosophy, Psychology, and Lifestyle; The Art of Teaching (or communicating about Yoga); Anatomy, Physiology, Alignment and physical benefits; Advanced practices including Visualization, Intention, Mantra, Relaxation, Pranayama, Pratyahara and Meditation; Teaching Practicum; and a Deeper Understanding of Yoga Poses. There is required reading and a written paper each week, as well as a weekly mentor meeting. Various 2-hour workshops on the topics mentioned above help complete the hours required.
Please email Julie Rost for information about the program. We find that a brief phone call is best to explain the details, structure and flexibility of the program. Please include in your e-mail your contact information and best days/times for Julie to call you. Julie will respond to schedule the phone meeting. Complete program details will be emailed after the initial phone conversation.
Pay in full by May 5th and save $150 off the cost of the program.
