Vinyasa Teacher Training
Breath-alignment and vinyasa as a concentration tool
Coming January 2019!
An immersive learning experience intended for those looking to deepen their personal yoga practice and prepare those who eventually choose to follow the path of teaching. This course is made up of 10 weekends - Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday all day. These modules can be followed individually to deepen your understanding of a specific topic or followed as a whole program making you eligible to receive a certification from The Breathing Space.
This course is not affiliated with Yoga Alliance as it far exceeds their standards. Unlike YA 200-hour requirements this course includes over 300 contact hours of which a minimum of 100 hours are dedicated to practice teaching and assisting, this does not include non-contact hours for self-study and assignments. Additionally, we provide ongoing mentoring even after course completion.
For acceptance into our certification program (following all 10 modules) we must be familiar with you and your practice beforehand. We require a minimum of 1 month consistent practice at The Breathing Space before the program starts and you become familiar with our teaching style and philosophy, email us if you have questions.

Saturday & Sunday: 8:30 - 10:45 seated meditation & practice; 10:45-11:00 journaling; 11:00-12:30 classroom; 13:30-5:30 classroom/discussion/practical
