About This Program

Starting on the weekend of October 11th! The Yoga Shanti 200-Hour Teacher Training is designed to immerse you into the study of yoga, enriching and strengthening your personal practice, and preparing you to teach a set of safe Shanti-style sequences in a range of categories. The group will be intimate, allowing for plenty of individual attention and mentorship, and we will guide you on establishing a strong foundation for a lifelong study of yoga. Curriculum will include cultivating a daily home practice of asana, pranayama, and meditation; teaching skills including sequencing, seeing and understanding bodies, manual adjusting, and assisting; anatomy, philosophy, and chanting.

Additionally you will not be called on to teach during teacher training weekends in front of faculty for feedback. Auditing students can participate in the final teaching evaluations upon request—this must be coordinated in advance of the final weekend teaching assessments.
