This 200 hour training is spanned out over 9 months, giving each participant plenty of time to absorb, reflect, practice and integrate the gained material into their personal yogic experience based research. We will examine anatomy and physiology, history, pranayama, meditation, familiar asanas will be deconstructed so students can master the feeling, cueing and the view of a safe, integrated, aligned pose. Participants will learn how to successfully theme and sequence a class to the demographic at hand, while gaining confidence in applying hands on adjustments to students  and self awareness to shift ones own alignment.  Vinyasa will be the main focus of this training, however other styles, such as Restorative and Iyengar will be webbed in too. Sanskrit, ayurveda, yoga ethics and the business of yoga will all be brushed upon, and peer guided classes will become very familiar early on. We are beyond thrilled to share our wisdom with the best community around. Great things are coming.

In an effort to maximize the knowledge we intend for you to gain, and as a demonstrative sign that we LOVE to collaborate we have paired with Zen Den Yoga, and Joanna Chipi, in York, ME.  As part of your tuition price, you get UNLIMITED free yoga at both studios, for the duration of the training. Training manuals are also included in the price.
