About This Training
Applicants to this training must have a consistent and serious yoga practice. The curriculum is designed for committed yoga students looking to enrich their understanding of hatha yoga, yogic philosophy & lifestyle, and anatomy & physiology while gaining the skills to teach a safe and intelligent yoga class. If accepted, students should be prepared to steep themselves in yoga for the duration of the training, both within the scheduled hours and outside of the classroom.
This training begins with the intention of being an intimate, dedicated and resourceful program. In addition to the many hours you will spend with Ame, this training also offers an opportunity to study with many of Boston and New York’s finest teachers in a small setting. There will be ample practice time and abundant practice teaching. Expect to learn a lot. This program will give you the tools to sequence, cue, adjust and execute a well-informed yoga class while also deepening your understanding of personal practice.
To graduate, students must showcase their understanding of the material covered in the training. This is done by completing all hours and outside assignments as well as passing a final exam. Graduation is dependent on the fulfillment of all requirements and not guaranteed. This training is registered with Yoga Alliance and exceeds all of the requirements for a 200-hour training.
