300-hr Yoga Immersion & Teacher Training
January – June 2019!

Join Abby and some of her favorite teachers at The People’s Yoga for a 300-hour yoga immersion & foundational teacher training! The first 200 hours (the immersion) will focus on developing your understanding of yoga as an embodied and evolving process. The next 100 hours (the teacher training) will focus on preparing you to teach.

This training will place strong emphasis on examining and developing your own Partner childs posepersonal practice, practical anatomy, yoga philosophy, and teaching methodology. With a breadth of experience in yoga study and teaching, Abby brings a grounded understanding of yoga as a physical, emotional, and spiritual endeavor; with a masters degree in education, she brings a passion for teaching methodology that is student-centered, curiosity-driven, and competency-based. Kara Giaier, Doctor of Chiropractics and yoga teacher, will lead the anatomy segment of the training; Meghan Maris will bring her nearly 20 years of yoga teaching experience to facilitate your study of yoga history and philosophy. Come prepared to practice, read, write, discuss, share, and grow! At the end of this training, you will be eligible to receive your foundational teaching certificate.

Why is this program 300 hours instead of the minimum-required 200, you ask?! Because nearly all yoga teachers agree: 200-hours is simply not enough! Plus, when has any spiritual seeker ever been satisfied with the bare minimum? Let us seek and raise the standards together!

Course curriculum will include:

Asana, meditation, and pranayama practice (70 hrs)
Asana alignment, cuing, and adjustments (80 hrs)
Anatomy & physiology (50 hrs)
Yoga history & philosophy (50 hrs)
Teaching methods (40 hrs)
Practicum/ capstone project (20 hrs)
