ADDITIONAL TRAINING: 

  • The Softer Side of Yoga  - Saturday May 4th 10:30am-7pm This additional training is not included in the cost of our Vinyasa Teacher Training but comes recommended to those who are interested in teaching or learning other styles of yoga such as: Hatha, Gentle, Yin, Restorative, Chair, and building Private clients. If you're interested in participating, it will only be available to our teacher trainers. Kaycie Hall, Lindsay Negrello, and Samantha Wiesner will all be leading this 1 day intensive training. Cost is an additional $200. You will receive separate learning materials and information to add to your training binders.

WHY OUR TRAINING: We are the only Vinyasa-based teacher training in the area. For those looking to either teach vinyasa or further their vinyasa understanding, this training program will leave you feeling confident and ready to explore that direction. While we will still cover other styles such as Ashtanga, Meditation, Yin, and Restorative, Vinyasa will be the primary focus of this training. We strive to provide you with the best experience possible. There will be lots of emphasis on anatomical alignment, sequencing, modifications, assists, cueing, creative expression, and how to read a room along with the philosophy and history of yoga. We also include our Elevate Assisting Program and certification in this teacher training, so each trainer will learn and be tested out for hands on assists. We've created our own content for our teacher training binders with all the necessary information and include books in our training to make sure you get the best possible experience and education. 

TRANSFORM: This is an intensive program which means we will be spending a lot of time with one another while diving deep into the yoga practice. This is more than just a school or training - this is transformative life experience. Expect internal work and group connection - we will become very close with each other over the course of this training. We will fall back on each other for help and support along the way. We will strengthen our practices and our abilities to teach and lead others. We will get to know Vinyasa inside and out. We will seek our edges and surrender - shining light on areas of our life where we can learn and grow. We will build connection and lasting friendships. 

WHAT TO EXPECT: We will cover different topics each day/week to build a solid foundation for becoming a Vinyasa yoga instructor. We will spend a lot of time practice teaching with our fellow teacher trainers while providing feedback to help grow into knowledgable and skillful instructors. There will be reading and homework assignments to help stay focused and inspired on this journey towards becoming a certified teacher. We will also use a closed Facebook group to connect and share with one another throughout this training, so be sure you have an active account. This program was not designed to be easy - it was designed to help you knock down your walls and to learn what it takes to live and teach yoga. It will be intense, but it will be worth it. Expect the unexpected.
