Teacher Training

200 hour Yoga Alliance® Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT®) Training  with Emily Young

 What style of yoga is the Emily Young Teacher Training?

This program is a vinyasa based school, teaching methods that balance precise instruction, detailed alignment, breath and fluid movement. The course begins by exploring the traditions of Hatha Yoga and the Eight Limbs of Yoga, then evolves to dissect the various application of vinyasa yoga practice to meet the needs of different minds and bodies.

Vinyasa yoga is designed to reveal the full depth of yoga. It is the systematic step-by-step unfolding of awareness without neglecting weak areas or catering to strong ones. This approach, called vinyasa, means sequential. It implies intelligent, balanced evolution, and it produces remarkable strength, flexibility, and clearness of mind. Out of the principle of vinyasa different progressive series of postures were created using the movements of the Sun Salutation as links.

Note: This is not a hot yoga teacher training, however we do offer a hot yoga module as part of the course.

How proficient in yoga do I have to be to do the 200 hour program?

We require that you have a minimum of 1 year of a consistent yoga practice before enrolling in our teacher training program. We want to make sure that trainees have a basic foundation in the primary yoga postures before learning how to teach. If it appears that you do not have the necessary foundation, we will kindly guide you until you have this experience. Please be aware that each day includes a vigorous two + hour asana class.
