Shanti Yoga School and Inner Dance Yoga is pleased to offer:

Flow, Form and the Heart of Yoga
200-Hour Yoga Alliance Approved Teacher Training 2016

OPEN HOUSE FOR YOGA TEACHER TRAINING January 12, 2016 @ Inner Dance Yoga Studio 7:45PM

The 2013 Teacher Training Experience that brought Shanti Yoga School’s Kim Zehnder and Inner Dance Yoga Center’s Debbie Stirsman together was an unbelievable marriage of two unique yogis that provided students access to teachers with more than 35 years of combined teaching experience. Kim began her yoga practice at age 19 and has always been drawn to the philosophy of yoga, traveling to India in 2008 to spend time in an ashram in Rishikesh. Debbie has always been fascinated by the body/mind connection, and has spent most of her life exploring movement and the bio-mechanics of the body. These two passionate women fuse together their expertise in philosophy, anatomy, ayurveda, yoga therapy and business to create a truly exceptional training. Our fully comprehensive training will not just change your practice, it will change your life! Even if you’ve never thought about becoming a teacher, this program will provide  you with all the tools you need to help you deepen your practice and take your understanding of yoga to a whole new level. It’s an experience you won’t find anywhere else. 

It was such a great experience, it had to be done again and you won’t want to miss it!  See what former students are saying here!

What if I'm not sure I want to teach Yoga; I just want to learn more about it?

While the term “Yoga Teacher Training”  and “200 hours”, or “500 hours”, does a good job of implying the depth of the training, it does nothing to describe what the majority of the people who have taken such a course would likely describe as its biggest benefit – namely, a life-changing course, that has impacted their lives in a on-going and positive way.

In her article, Why taking a yoga teacher training could be the best thing you do for yourself ever, the author, Jeanne Heileman explains further.

“It might be called a yoga teacher training, but really, it’s a course in learning how to work with your body and mind for the rest of your life.”
