TEACHER TRAINING  

 

Please click here for the application if interested. Please make clear your reason for taking the training, as this is an important requirement. It is not about years of experience, though you are expected to have had some yoga experience. If you have only taken a few yoga classes you may not be a good candidate for this training but may still apply as the reasons for taking it are as important as your experience. If that is the case, you may be required to take a certain number of classes before the training. You are expected to attend all sessions, do all work that is required, as well as practicums and work outside the classroom. Completion of the exam is at the end of the program.

 

Sewall House is located in a small village in northern Maine. You may view the rooms on our accommodation page; they are roomy and comfortable, beautifully furnished. This environment gives the student teacher the opportunity to concentrate on the studies while living in a like-minded community. Your work will then help you incorporate and build what you have learned into your own practice, homework and potential as a teacher.

 

It is important that you are able to commit to the entire program

 

Please consider this carefully as there will be no refunds, though the tuition can be paid as you go along (you will still be charged once you have committed to your spot). Payment is by Visa, MC or personal check (if you are paying the full amount in one payment for reduced cost).

She approaches yoga as a lifelong lesson and journey of self-study, as a way to better understand and explore your own mind, breath and physical body. This teacher training will give you that opportunity as well.
