200-hour training program
We are very excited to offer a 200-hour teacher training! If you are interested in becoming a teacher or deepening your practice, this could be the program for you. Included in your training: in-depth study of ethics, asana, anatomy, philosophy, pranayama, practice teaching, feedback on your teaching, hands-on adjustments, the business of being a yoga teacher, restorative yoga, select readings, special guest teachers (in addition to the beloved directors Carla and Ramit and well known teachers David, Judy, Sarah…) and the list goes on. For the duration of the program you will be able to take unlimited classes at all three Jaya studios. Every single trainee will teach a 75 minute class to the Jaya Yoga Center community as a final project.
