Are you ready to take your yoga practice to the next level? Dive deep into the parts of yoga that you only briefly hear about in class and discover the life-changing capacity of this 5,000+ year old tradition.
SoulPlay Yoga’s 200 Hour Vinyasa Teacher Training is designed to immerse you into all aspects of yoga. You'll gain a solid understanding of yoga’s origins and how it has evolved into the modern practice we see in studios today, and you'll acquire the tools, language, knowledge and skills to apply this transformative practice to every area of your life and to teach it wherever you go.
Teacher Training is NOT only for people who want to teach yoga! It is for people who have been touched by their yoga practice and who want to explore its deeper teachings. Yoga is about finding peace within oneself and learning to move through the world in a more open, aware, honest, kind and loving way- whether you want to help others or want to build lifelong tools to help yourself, this 3.5 month journey will invite you to look at your life honestly and propel you towards a deeper understanding of how you show up in the world and how you can do so with more joy, compassion and purpose.
This is not a cookie-cutter program where you learn to teach a set sequence. This is a program that develops YOU, your passions, your strengths and your interests and that teaches you how to incorporate those into poignant, intelligent yoga classes. Are you passionate about the physical practice, designing fun sequences and taking people on a movement journey? Are you excited about breath work, meditation and controlling energy in the body? Are you a science nerd fascinated with integrated anatomy and how yoga helps strengthen and support the body? Are you passionate about inspiring, motivating and helping people realize they are more in control of their lives than they think? Whatever your passion is (maybe you're not sure yet!), you'll develop it and learn to share it.
Beyond being a well-rounded and comprehensive foundation for teaching and practicing yoga, this training will guide and support you in your journey of Svadhyaya: self-study. The most powerful part of teacher training is the personal transformation that naturally occurs as you bravely find your authentic voice and learn to trust and embody what you love about yoga. The SoulPlay Team holds a fiercely compassionate, safe and fun space for you to grow and teach, and the combined backgrounds of the teaching team makes for an intimate and truly individualized experience.
Beyond developing your personal practice, our goal is for you to come out of this training fully ready to sequence and teach a 60, 75 and 90 minute Vinyasa class for all levels, offering appropriate modifications for beginners or more seasoned students. Many of our trainees get hired at studios around town very soon after completing their training and it's one of the things we are most proud of! Get out there and share the peace!
