“More than what I had signed up for, Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) at Refresh opened my heart and mind to layers of yoga and history and soulful connection with kindred spirits.” Jenny C.
Throughout the year, we open our doors and our hearts to a new cohort of yoga teacher trainees. Some of them come to us because they want to be yoga teachers themselves, inspired by a mentor or influential teacher. Others simply want to dive a bit deeper into their yoga practice. We welcome everyone who is ready to make the commitment and learn a little something about themselves.
The curriculum was designed with our modern lives in mind. After taking the 30 hour Level I weekend, the trainees can complete their 200 hours as their schedules permit. We are a 5-Star rated, Yoga Alliance 200 hour registered yoga school, but to us it is not about how many hours. It is about presenting and absorbing the material in a logical and interesting manner. This training is interactive and engaging. It also doesn’t matter if you can stand on your head or balance on your hands. All levels. All ages. A diverse range of people enriches this experience.
A recent graduate, now teacher, shares her thoughts,
“My teacher training was one of the most wonderful experiences in my life. It was a journey that I had no idea what to expect but as soon as I got into it, I realized that I had the perfect support network with all of my fellow trainees. My training allows me to help others achieve their goals, but also helped me find my own voice, both on and off the mat. While it sounds cliche, my experience in my teacher training program at Refresh Yoga was life changing.” ~Chelsea G.
Like most things designed to encourage personal growth, this training is a challenge. The course covers the intricacies of the postures of a Vinyasa practice as well as anatomy, philosophy and ethics, and physical assists. It will test you, but you’ll so grateful you did it.
“I have wanted to do YTT for three years, but the commitment was intimidating enough to always find an excuse to wait until the next session. Had I known how life changing it would be, I would never have put it off. I have been humbled in all the right ways, I have formed deep friendships that I hope to have for a lifetime and I cannot wait to share yoga with others as a lifelong practice in self care, self love and universal compassion.” -Kathy S.
Probably the most surprising and welcoming outcomes of this course are the deep connections you’ll make with your fellow trainees. In this current group, there’s almost too much fun!
I started teacher training to improve my personal practice and health- and now at the halfway point I already know that one of my greatest passions in life will be sharing yoga with others. What I didn’t expect to get out of training- and have been thrilled by- are amazing friendships I now have with my fellow students and a sense of belonging within the studio’s community. It’s so much more than a training program- it’s improved my heart, head, body, and soul.
I’d also offer that you know you’re in a great space when often times the hardest part of holding a pose is holding it while laughing so hard with your classmates.
Looking forward to our next Foundations!
