Yoga Daily’s Strong and Supple 200-Hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training

There are many ways to teach yoga and many ways to practice yoga. The foundation and primary focus of our Strong and Supple Vinyasa Yoga 200-hour Teacher Training Program is an intelligent balance of learning how to include strength, stability, and softness in a mindful vinyasa sequence. You will be prompted to think outside the “boxana” when it comes to asana. We will explore movement beyond labels. What things are typical yoga practices lacking nowadays? How can we bring some of those elements into our practice? We will also emphasize the importance of and how to incorporate the other limbs of yoga seamlessly into a yoga practice.

Because Tricia has been teaching, studying, and practicing yoga and all its aspects – asana, pranayama, meditation, service – full time since 2003, she can offer from personal experiences, insight into the deeper dimensions of yoga that, frequently, the staff of other trainings do not have the experience to provide.

For those students just starting out on their yoga journey and desiring to teach (RYT 200), it is essential to obtain a strong foundation in anatomy and biomechanics, yoga ethics and philosophy, and the art of teaching & sequencing. The curriculum is designed to provide a very well-rounded understanding to instill confidence and clarity in your teaching. The program offers a supportive environment, encouraging skills and insights and constructive feedback that lead to teachers who are able to teach smart, safe, and creative classes. Following the program, we will offer ongoing mentoring for any graduate who comes on to teach at Yoga Daily.

Our students will meet and will be supported by like-minded yoga practitioners with a similar love and desire for diving deeper into yoga. Lifetime friendships will be forged. A new path will begin here. This will be life-changing!

This program may not be the right fit for you if you want to teach a yoga class like a robot. This program will encourage YOU to find your unique voice and teach as YOU! COMMITMENT is ENCOURAGED…This course will challenge you to show up. The course may not be for you if you cannot commit to the entirety. Some missed sessions may be made up at the rate of $60 per hour with the lead teacher. Missing classes is HIGHLY DISCOURAGED.

Tuesdays 6-10pm
There will be 9 weekends (every other weekend) and 9 Tuesday evenings.
Do you live driving distance but just out of town and REALLY want to do our training? We know several housing options close by that are offered by locals. Rooms at VERY reasonable rates. Some are walking distance to the studio! The training is set up for every other weekend with the same Tuesdays as that weekend- so technically you could roll into town Friday afternoon of the training weekend and leave Tuesday after training or Wed morning….It is possible that we may Zoom the Tuesday sessions for out of towners so you could attend the Tuesdays virtually. This will be on an as needed basis.

Quite Transformative!

Yoga Daily is a wonderful space, naturally lit and spacious. I took a special two-hour class that was a combination Yoga and massage therapy, with two teachers. It was quite transformative and I will go back for more!
