200-Hour teacher training
with ellen Niedringhaus, Bluebird Yoga + candace glass, southtown yoga

May - December 2019

Immersion encourages personal development and modalities are used to create an immersion experience. Our 200-hour Teacher Training has a strong focus on alignment-based sequencing using mindfulness as a guiding principle as an approach to teaching and self-growth. During training, students will experience asana practice, mindfulness and meditation, mantra, pranayama, and self-reflection as ways to delve deeper into the practice of yoga. This training is designed to encourage personal growth through study and connection of physical practice, philosophy of yoga, and spiritual practice. Our aim is to provide a strong foundation, steeped in tradition with an awareness of the present, that will support, sustain, and uphold the integrity of the yoga practice while allowing space for each student to experience personal growth that will aid in their teaching and their life. 

Fridays : 5:30-8:30
Saturdays : 8:30- 4:30 
Sundays : 8:30- 4:30
