Looking to deepen your practice and share your love for yoga with others?  Our 2020 yoga teacher training will be held over 8 weekends beginning the week of May 16/17 and ending July 4/5. Karen has been teaching this course since 2013.

We will focus on deepening your personal practice and the art of teaching yoga.  We will explore the physical body, the energetic body, and the mind, bringing the traditional practice into the modern context. Karen combines alignment-based Ashtanga yoga with classical vinyasa, and integrates Buddhist philosophy into the history of yogic thought.

The training includes daily practice of asana, pranayama, chanting and meditation, as well as instruction of physical and subtle body anatomy, philosophy, and teaching methodology.  We read the classic original texts, in approachable translations.  We focus on the assessment of a posture from a functional movement perspective, as well as the safe and appropriate hands-on assist to suit the individual.

The cost is $3000 and includes all books, materials, and guest teachers. You may repeat the course for 1/2 price; if you already have 200-hour certification from another school, the cost is only $2000.

We will be reading the following:

The Yoga Sutra of Patanjali by Chip Hartranft

The Anatomy of Movement by Blandine Calais-Germain

The Hatha Yoga Pradipika by Swami Swatmarama translated by Pancham Sinh

The Bhagavad Gita : Pocket Edition by Swami Nikhilananda
