Joy of Yoga 200 Hour Training
The Yoga Alliance certified 200-hour Joy of Yoga Teacher Training has two 100 hour phases: a dynamic training and a therapeutics training. The dynamic training addresses dynamic asana, including the fundamentals of sequencing and teaching a flow-based vinyasa practice. The therapeutics training addresses therapeutic styles of practice including how to sequence and teach restorative and gentle yoga. In both trainings we address principles of alignment, sequencing, how to “read bodies” and do safe and effective adjustments. By the end of both one hundred hour phases, you will have an intimate knowledge of the human body through studying both western anatomy and subtle anatomy from which the science of yoga is based. You will discover or refine your own unique “voice” and radically enhance your passion for your practice in the company of others who share in the same passion, and in the words of Joseph Campbell, ‘follow your bliss.’

Joy of Yoga 500 Hour Training
To respond to the need for highly experienced teachers, I developed the Yoga Alliance certified Joy Of Yoga 500-hour program. It is for those who have completed an YA certified 200 hour program and want to concentrate their studies, work with like-minded colleagues, have the support of mentors or deepen their own personal and professional practice. The J.O.Y 500 is an applied investigation into the variety of areas that yoga impacts and transforms our lives, beginning on our mat and branching out into the way we care for ourselves, interact with those we love and contribute to the world around us.
The J.O.Y 500-hour Teacher Training is designed to impart new mind/body practices supported by western medical research as well as ancient practices to supplement your knowledge, providing a supportive, rigorous and inspirational environment in which you continue to integrate what you are learning. The J.O.Y. 500 provides a non-dogmatic philosophical and well rounded curriculum where you can dive deeply into your own investigation of this practice.
