200+ Hour Teacher Training
with Alyssa Snow, Stacey Linden, Amy Soucy, and Colleen Kerns
September 2018 - June 2019
This diverse, inclusive, and comprehensive 200+ hour teacher training program utilizes and draws from the unique backgrounds of MindBodySoul's teaching team.
This program is not just for aspiring teachers. Anyone with a consistent asana practice who would like to deepen his or her knowledge and experience of yoga is welcome to apply. This training teaches yoga as a tool for expanding awareness: the ability to pay attention to this moment now.
Our underlying methodology for teaching yoga incorporates Pantajali's 8 Limbs of Yoga. Yoga is for the mind – the side effect is a healthy body. In this course, we teach that the practice of yoga and the teaching of yoga may be approached as a conscious path toward spiritual awakening. Or you can practice yoga because it makes you feel good and brings joy and clarity into your life. Students who successfully complete this course will receive an intellectual and experiential understanding of yoga and the techniques to confidently teach a thoughtful, balanced class.
Our course is open to all students. The length of the course allows the student to develop a strong personal practice and allows for integration of the course material at a more relaxed pace.
Class is held on scheduled weekends from 9am until 5pm. Each weekend will consist of 14 hours of lecture and asana. This is a 200+ hour course. There will be 200 hours of contact time with teachers in the form of lecture, asana and meditation practice, practicums, and mentorship. Additional hours will be required in terms of homework, practicum study, and personal practice.
This is a comprehensive course that offers the student the opportunity to learn experientially: both the personal practice of yoga and the art of teaching a thoughtful and balanced class.
