Because many modern yogis wish to study yoga without any desire to teach, Boston Yoga School has redesigned the traditional 200-hour teacher training into two modules aimed at those students looking to simply deepen their own practice as well as those students considering a career as a yoga teacher.
Module 1 will encompass a thorough study into the history, philosophy and anatomy of yoga. Module 2 will focus primarily on cultivating the ability to teach yoga with confidence, intelligence and ease. Those hoping to teach yoga professionally must complete both modules. Those simply interested in understanding the practice of yoga may enroll in module 1 without module 2. Those who have completed a 200-hour training elsewhere or have received Ame's permission may also enroll in module 2 alone.
Applicants must have a consistent and dedicated yoga practice. The curriculum is designed to enrich one’s understanding of yoga through classroom study (lecture and practice), reading and writing assignments, and time spent with resourceful and gifted teachers. If accepted, students should be prepared to steep themselves in yoga for the duration of the program, both within the scheduled hours and outside of the classroom.
In addition to the many hours you will spend with Ame, Brenna and me, this program also offers an opportunity to study with many of Boston and beyond's finest teachers in a small setting. There will be ample practice time and you can expect to learn a great deal. This program meets and exceeds 200-hour teacher training standards as defined by Yoga Alliance.
