yoga for every body

2017 Yoga Teacher Training - Now Accepting Applications!

If you're thinking about Yoga Teacher Training for 2017, now's the time to take action! We are so pumped about everything that's going on in our Teacher Training program. The rich discussions in our classes, the level of preparedness of our graduates, the on-going support and collaboration in our Alumni group, the list goes on and on.

2017 will be our 5th round of Teacher Training, and we're finding that as time goes on, our students and our graduates are becoming more engaged and more enthusiastic about making yoga accessible for various populations. Our grads are teaching in community centers, churches, their private healthcare practices, yoga studios, and gyms.

Recent discussions in our Alumni group cover a wide range of topics such as how to make yoga accessible for people with bigger bodies, how to establish pricing for group classes in a nursing home, the ethical considerations of student-teacher romantic relationships. I'm thrilled with the quality of discussion!

If this sounds like something you want to be a part of, we'd love to hear from you! We're currently accepting applications for next's year's YTT class (classes start January 27). Or if you have any questions just reply to this email and we can set up some time to chat.

Have a great day!


Announcing: 200 Hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training!

We are very excited to announce that we'll be offering a 200 Hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training program beginning in January, 2015! My good friend Emily Loupe, who is a yoga teacher and yoga therapist with thousands of hours of training and thousands of hours of teaching experience, developed our curriculum and is our new Director of 200 Hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training.

I will be on the teaching staff and the rest of the team will soon be announced.

With so many teacher training programs offered in the Austin area, you may wonder why we've decided to offer a teacher training of our own.

What's special about our training is that it is inspired by our philosophy that Yoga is for EveryBody. At The Yoga Room, we customize our classes to meet the needs and goals of a broad and diverse population.

We believe there is a strong need for this therapeutic style of yoga and we want to train more teachers to effectively teach yoga for every person that shows up in their class on any given day. People who are thin or fat, healthy or unwell, with or without injuries, people who are trying to manage their stress, trying to improve their posture, or perhaps even recovering from surgery.

Yoga for EveryBody is our passion and we want to enable more teachers to to teach this inclusive style where everyone feels welcome to enjoy the benefits of yoga.

Today all the details of our 200 Hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training are available on our website. If you're interested in becoming a therapeutics-focused Hatha Yoga teacher, or even if you're just interested in deepening your personal yoga practice, I encourage you to check it out.

Please give us a call or send us an email if you have any questions.



P.S. If you know someone who is interested in becoming a therapeutics-based yoga teacher who is well prepared to offer yoga classes that suit a diverse population, please share our teacher training information with them!
