Our 200-hour, Yoga Alliance Certified, SCHOOL OF EXCELLENCE Teacher Training Program starts on April 4 - and we would love to have you join us for this transformative training. Come practice with us and stick around to learn more - you'll be happy you did! :)
The 200-hour Yoga Alliance Certified Teacher Training program is a powerful and transformative experience that can be absolutely life-changing.
This program is open to both those looking to become certified teachers and those who are simply looking to deepen their own personal practice.
Our teacher training is focused on alignment-based power yoga with a secondary focus on restorative yoga and meditation. We draw inspiration and guidance from a host of different yoga styles and lineages, and offer a multi-faceted and skilled faculty of teachers for a truly well-rounded training.
Our module-format teacher training program is completed over the course of 8 months, using 2-3 weekends per month as training weekends. Training weekends take place from 8am-6pm on both Saturday and Sunday (with meal breaks given). In order to graduate, 100% attendance is required for the entirety of each training weekend UNLESS alternate plans have been made and approved before training begins. Unavoidable absences planned in advance (before teacher training begins) AND approved by the lead trainer will be excused but make up assignments must be completed prior to graduation. 20 hours of observation and classroom assist time is required in addition to a service project.
This 200-hour program provides everything needed to begin teaching yoga as mandated by Yoga Alliance in philosophy, anatomy, business, wisdom, sutras, kriyas, meditation, pranayama, adjustment, the art of teaching, language of energy, and nutrition.
We are honored, humbled and OH SO EXCITED! to offer this invitation to our beautiful yogi family: On Saturday-Sunday April 18-19, 2020, Elise Carter and Kenny Kolter are facilitating a weekend of yoga, sound therapy, reset, relaxation - AND (possibly the best part?) a full weekend of delicious, organic, chef-prepared meals. We would LOVE for you to join us! All of this will take place at High Hill Farms, about 35 minutes from Tyler, an absolutely gorgeous and one-of-a-kind property in Arp, TX.
