North Shore Yoga Teacher Training provides an opportunity to deepen one’s experience and understanding of yoga. This program not only will bring you on a journey of self-discovery but offers a holistic, well rounded comprehensive training program. You do not need a desire to be a teacher to participate. However, for those of you desiring to teach, the completion of this training will provide you the 200 hour certification with Yoga Alliance. In addition, the program, grounded in ancient philosophy, will give you the practical tools to teach Vinyasa and Ashtanga yoga. This course will be intensive, highly rewarding, yet taught in a joyful, supportive, and compassionate environment.
The goal of this program is to teach you how to become a dynamic teacher, while at the same time giving you the space to bring your own practice to greater depths. You will learn the fundamentals of teaching a Vinyasa and Ashtanga yoga class. Through practice, and your own creative potential, you will gain the confidence required to teach to a group of students seeking physical and spiritual growth. From the steady practice of asana, pranayama, meditation, and self-inquiry, you can discover your own true essence, maximizing your impact as a teacher. We encourage you to develop your own “soul-centered” approach to teaching. Teaching authentically, from your own truth, is a very effective way to share the path of yoga.
