We are delighted to announce 200-hour teacher training for 2013 with Sarah Trelease at Yoga Bhoga!
Travel deep into your yoga and towards personal transformation. Through practice, both as a student and as a developing teacher, you will find your voice and learn how to bring your unique point of view and gifts to the art of teaching others. You’ll develop a strong working understanding of yoga alignment, meditation, pranayama and yoga philosophy. And you’ll open more fully to your life, creating a stronger community by learning to see and communicate connectivity on all levels – physical, emotional, mental, intuitive and spiritual.
Are you interested in exploring yoga more fully but not necessarily in becoming a yoga teacher? Teacher training is for current and future teachers as well as for those who simply want to go further along the yogic path. Through the practice of teaching you’ll learn to communicate, to know yourself, and to cultivate clarity and appreciation for the world we live in. You’ll use your own experiences on and off the mat, practicing with the inherent wisdom of success and adversity to learn how to be helpful to others.
In this teacher training program you will:
- Develop a clarity of intention and authenticity that is grounded in the practice ofsvadyaya (self-study).
- Dive deep into consistent study of asana, pranayama and meditation, developingskill and awareness in your own practice.
- Discover how yogic and Buddhist teachings are relevant to you today, and how delving into these ancient practices can create deep personal transformation.
- Learn the foundations of anatomy specific to yoga practice.
- Learn clear asana alignment based on an anatomical understanding of the body.
- Learn intelligent sequencing that gives you the tools to design safe, effective yoga classes suitable for any student.
- Learn and practice the skills of communication, knowing and speaking to the student in front of you with grounded clarity.
- Explore the roots of yoga, gaining a working knowledge of the influences ofvarious schools and how they relate to our modern practice.

“I had been looking for the right yoga teacher training for a couple years and was overjoyed when I learned that Sarah and Yoga Bhoga would be offering a training. As our guide, Sarah wove together theory and practice in way that really resonated with me as a
learner. We explored the fundamentals of anatomy, yogic history, asana, pranayama, yogic and Buddhist philosophy, and more. It was a deep and rich experience, not just because I got to delve into all this fascinating stuff, but because I got to do it with a community of wonderful people and under the wise and compassionate care of Sarah and Scott. I am so very grateful for having done this training. “ -Samantha Kaan
