Becoming a Yoga Teacher
Thanks for your interest in this 200 hour Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training.
Being a yogi means orienting your life towards your highest potential, from the deepest realization of who you are to the expression of that truth in the world. Being a Yoga teacher is a commitment to awaken others to the insights of Yoga.
In this training we will work closely together according to where you are in your understanding and practice. My intention is to properly train serious yoga students to become strong, confident, knowledgeable teachers. In addition to all the relevant information about Yoga philosophy and theory, I put a strong emphasis on developing your personal practice and cultivating your personal growth. What you have to share as a teacher comes from your own experience.
By the time you finish this course you will be ready to confidently teach the full Primary Series of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. You will hold a Teaching Diploma in your hands and have a thorough grounding in Yoga Anatomy, Ashtanga adjustments, Yoga philosophy, the practice of meditation and much more.
