500 Hour Teacher Training Program

beth quote photoThis advanced level Classical Yoga Teacher's Training program is for those who have completed their 200 hour level certification (in most any yoga tradition) and want to continue their learning in a yoga community. The 300 hours of training are flexible and individualized, usually completed in two years.

Basic components include a monthly 3-hour "advanced practice" that meets one Sunday or Thursday each month, the equivalent of 2 additional workshop hours per month within the YogaLife Institute curriculum, mentor meetings with Julie Rost or Lisa Rockenmacher, as needed, teaching and/or workshop facilitation, weekly yoga class attendance, writing and/or other independent research. Topics include advanced practices related to anatomy and physiology, mind-body health, meditation, energy work and self understanding via Jnana, Tantra, Bhakti and Karma Yoga.

Miya Chase - Opening the Door to the Spiritual Side of Yoga

Interviewed by Tracey Miller

Miya Chase completed her 500-hour training and is an instructor at YogaLife Institute. She is married and lives in Kensington, New Hampshire with her husband and 6-year-old son.

miya chase quote photoWhen Miya's roommate came home to their California apartment one day with a VCR tape and asked her if she wanted to learn yoga, she said, "Sure, why not?" The two started practicing power yoga in front of the TV wearing jean shorts and t-shirts from the local thrift store.

At the time, yoga was merely exercise for Miya. She practiced power yoga at home until she could afford classes then went to a studio so she could get feedback from an instructor.

Yoga continued to be part of her life for many years. When she moved back east she enrolled in a teacher training program at a studio in Dover. "It exposed me to many varieties of yoga," she said.

She hadn't planned to teach, but when she started taking classes at a studio in North Hampton, a friend and mentor encouraged her to become an instructor. "I was nervous.
