Do you remember the excitement [and overwhelm] you felt back when your 200-hr training program first started? Over time, as you put what you learned to use and gained clarity on what you had studied, did you realize that what was once overwhelming was really just a scratch on the surface of yoga’s rich philosophies and practices? We understand how that desire to know more can evolve into a yearning to embrace yoga at a deeper level, especially in our modern world. Our program is designed to meet the Yoga Alliance yoga teacher training requirements while offering deeper insights into how yoga helps us to face the modern challenges of stress, diversity, mental health, disconnection, and divide.
Peace through Yoga’s Advanced 300-hr Teacher Training meets each student’s quest for knowledge with a uniquely structured program of core and personal studies. Director Blair McKissock, PhD, ERYT-500, recreation therapist, researcher, and lecturer has developed a series of foundational core modules that are required of all students and special experiences unique to Peace Through Yoga. Because of Blair’s training and expertise, you can expect an experiential approach to much of your studies in a format that differentiates our program from others. Devaki Lammet, MA in psychology, ERYT-500, is the co-leader of our training. She brings her expertise in yoga from teaching internationally, Ayurveda and yogic philosophy to create new and enriching experiences in living a yogic life. Both Blair and Devaki have specializations in coaching and psychology that are woven through the training. The teaching environment is enriched by our location at Strides to Success, a horse farm and therapeutic learning center just west of Indianapolis where students can explore yoga in natural spaces.
Our advanced program of modules exceeds Yoga Alliance requirements to earn a 300-hr certification [formerly known as the 500-hr certification]. In addition to your 300-hr Certification, you will also receive certifications in Chair Yoga and Eco-Yoga, diversifying your skills and experience as a yoga teaching professional. You will hone and advance through practice, hands-on experience, and teacher and peer reviews, as well as valuable discussions on creating programs for special populations. You will learn how to expertly facilitate beginner to advanced classes, recognize the subtle dynamics of human interaction, and approach teaching in a way that embraces the diversity of all people who come to the mat.
The world continues to change, it needs yoga. The Peace Through Yoga teacher training will teach you what is necessary to succeed in life and practice as a yoga teacher.
