Summer 2020 – On-Site Yoga Teacher Training
Our next Yoga Teacher certification course begins on July 6, 2020. Candidates should have, at least, two years of steady training in Aura’s Restorative/Hatha Yoga Style or comparable training within a similar style. Restorative and Hatha Yoga are gentle styles that fit the needs of everyone. Client safety is our number one concern.
We meet the 200 hour Yoga Teacher requirements, and contact hour guidelines, set by Yoga Alliance. The teacher trainer is Dr. Paul Jerard, E-RYT 500.
Yoga Teacher Training classes meet July 6, 2020 – August 7, 2020
You must make a commitment to be at all of the teacher training classes and go through an internship. Level I Yoga Teacher training is based on 200 hours of intensive study within the many aspects of Hatha Yoga.
Some flexibility can be built into your Yoga Teacher internship, based upon hours with your mentor and teaching Yoga classes. We will cover this on orientation day or you can call ahead.
This Yoga certification program includes hands-on development with Dr. Paul Jerard, E-RYT 500, YACEP, the Director of Yoga Teacher Training, independent research, YTT manual, and the home-study of teacher texts. We adhere to the International Standards for Yoga Teacher Training hours.
