670 Hour Yoga Teacher Training

About Our Training Program

Our 670 hour Teacher Training Programs focus on bringing yoga teachers to the professional level of instructing yoga.
Training and attention are placed on ensuring that all trainees have a  thorough understanding of physical anatomy and subtle anatomy (nadis,  chakras, vayus, and bandhas), alignment, history, modifications of  Classical Hatha Yoga Poses and much much more. We also study, breakdown,  assist, and sequence “Advanced Poses”.

To be eligible for the 670 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Program, trainees are required to have:

  1. already obtained a Yoga Alliance approved certification at the  200-hour level, (preference is given to graduates of our 290 Hour  Teacher Training Programs)
  2. a minimum of 6 months of yoga teaching experience.

This training is 50% full and we anticipate this training will sell out  by the early discount date (12/5/17).

Bryan Kest Long, Slow, Deep Workshop

Long, Slow, Deep Master Class (2p-5p) Bryan had a couple of objectives when he created Long, Slow, Deep. First of all, Bryan wanted to give students a deep and  challenging alternative to the myriad of Vinyasa and flowing yoga classes. He  wanted students to have a choice of yoga practices that may not involve Sun Salutations or Standing Series. Bryan wanted to offer students a practice that is utterly potent without focusing on strength, endurance or even building much heat. Secondly, Bryan wanted students to experience the benefits of holding poses a little longer, giving massive areas such as hamstrings, groin, hips, shoulders, etc.,  more time to release and go deeper into poses. This is truly an amazing routine!! It is by FAR the most difficult class Bryan teaches, yet we rarely leave the  floor. The challenge of Long, Slow, Deep is mostly  primarily mental but hang in there, be patient and keep breathing  deeply and fluidly. This class is suited for students of all levels.

Yin Yoga Teacher Training with Joe Barnett

More   and more teachers and practitioners are exploring Yin Yoga. This is a   natural reaction to what has become an extremely yang health culture.   Yin yoga is the relaxed practice of floor postures for three to five   minutes at a time. A yin practice emphasizes the connective tissues of   the hips, thighs, pelvis and lower spine. It prepares the body and mind   for longer meditation practices. By drawing the student’s awareness  away  from the muscles and deeper into the bones a deep level of relaxed   focus is achieved. 

  • Part 1 Wednesday, July 25 - Friday, July 27, 2018 (20 Hours) 
  • Part 2 Friday, July 27 - Sunday, July 29, 2018 (20 Hours) 
  • Part 3 Friday, August 3 - Sunday, August 5, 2018 (20 Hours)
