Training for Yoga Teachers and Aspiring Teachers
200 Hour Teacher Training
I am very pleased and proud to co-lead, with Stacey Vespaziani and Jennifer Lee the SHPY 200 hour teacher training program. This program is a collaboration of South Hills Power Yoga, Bloomfield Yoga and Abundant Strength. It is an amazing process to see yoga students become yoga teachers!
The program runs each spring, beginning in late February and wrapping up in the summer. A large part of the learning is done during 8 intensive weekends of study, during which participants learn the knowledge and skills they need to deliver an effective power yoga class. In addition to the 8 weekends participants develop their personal mat practice, read and study independently, and practice teach to friends and family. Each participant then teaches a one hour public class at SHPY as a chance to use their skills " real time."
Our program is thorough and practical, and we have been thrilled to see SHPY teacher training graduates go on to teach in many different settings from studios to community centers.
