Learn to Teach Yoga Teacher Training is an inspiring opportunity for your own growth and transformation, to be nurtured as you find your voice and learn to teach yoga with clarity, skill and warmth of heart.
Teaching exercises, designing teaching curriculum, and sequencing are regular parts of the training. You will learn to instruct poses clearly and succinctly, with language skills that inspire your students to express their poses from the inside out.
"Sara and Lisa co-teaching the Yoga Teacher Training Program create this amazing well-rounded sphere that contains the foundation of not only building a strong asana practice but also philosophy and what yoga truly means to you as person, a yogi and someone whom is embarking on becoming a teacher. When Sara tells you at the beginning of training it is a life changing experience, it truly is and during this transformation you are supported in a very safe and loving atmosphere from everyone. From monkeying around, learning about Hanuman and the other stories that yoga philosophy is richly steeped in to learning how to adeptly spot misalignment in your students, the teacher training program sets you up to become as great a teacher as you allow yourself to grow because the learning doesn’t stop when the program is over. Sara and Lisa give you so much knowledge for you to explore on your own, you pursue what is meaningful to you so that you may pass that great and beautiful knowledge on to everyone else that you meet. Your eyes are truly opened to the greater, wider world." --Brittany A. 2017
