The schedule includes 190+ hours of pre-scheduled classes plus time for self-study assignments for deeper learning. We encourage a commitment to an ongoing or new personal yoga practice as part of this journey. The choice to add the additional Sundays would modify the finish date to Dec 11th.

Combining in-studio and live virtual training we create a distinctive hybrid learning experience. When through Zoom learn from the perspective of your future virtual student, and practice being the teacher in this environment. Then easily transition your skills into the studio when we take advantage of in person training. For those who prefer or are out of the local area, a fully virtual live learning experience is available.
*Maximum 10 students. At GYS, we strongly believe a smaller cohesive group creates an enhanced learning experience, and ensures a casual, receptive, positive environment. With two instructors often available there is also the opportunity for one-on-one mentoring and support.

This is a physical program as we share with our students the fundamentals of teaching yoga. We include specialty concepts including learning, sequencing and practicing safe, accessible poses (asanas) along with modifications and options; designing yoga classes; understanding fitness principles, and how, when and who to adjust; how props benefit a practice; awareness of newer approaches to safely moving the yoga body. We focus on how to ensure a positive, inclusive, multi-level practice for all. Added to this is an overview of the rich history of yoga from its origins to today's approach, its guiding philosophy and amazing traditions.
*When in-studio we have adapted our classroom space (see image below) to far exceed any ongoing requirements for physical distancing to ensure students a positive, safe environment.
