This course is the traditional 200hr yoga teacher training approved by Yoga Alliance. It is a hybrid of online and in-person learning. Upon completion of 180 in-person training hours and 20 hours of homework, the student is eligible to graduate from Edge Yoga School and register with Yoga Alliance as a Registered Yoga Teacher, RYT-200.
The cornerstone of our training is to make yoga available to all by offering approachable, inclusive classes. The training is arranged in snippets for ease of learning. Many teachers find that transitioning from one pose to the next is the most challenging component of instruction. By providing training in segments of three (snippets) much of the work is done for the instructor. This approach is the hallmark of our training program. It provides interchangeable snippets so that the instructor is not so dependent on class plans. We believe this makes for a more versatile instructor that can respond to the group class element with ease.
Edge Yoga Teacher Training is committed to providing you a comprehensive knowledge base of yoga asanas (poses.) These asanas can be taught in an array of formats from the stillness of Hatha Yoga to the seamless flow of Vinyasa Yoga. The poses remain the same, while the pace and order of the snippets are decided by the instructor. We focus on a style of yoga that aims to improve the physical health of the body, while stilling the mind.
So whether you are looking to hone your craft and become a teacher, or enhance your personal practice, we welcome you!
- Yoga styles will include Gentle Yoga, Power Yoga, Vinyasa Flow, Hatha Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Prenatal Yoga and Salutations;
- Emphasis will be hands on experience for the students, right from the first day of training and throughout the training;
- Training will include studies of the 8 limbs of yoga, Ayurveda fundamentals, breathing and meditation techniques, and so much more; and
- Includes training manual and corresponding video of the program for ease of learning.
We look forward to walking alongside you in your journey. It is said that the best instructors remain students throughout life.
