Mark your calendars, friends!
Our next teacher training program starts February 27, 2015!

Jamie Silverstein, Tara Dyberg Adrienne Kimberley, Sheri Celentano, Richelle Richard, and Guests along with the TGY staff you know and love, will be your guides for the amazing journey that is Teacher Training.

Poses, yoga philosophy, and teaching skills are taught, with joy, creativity, and FUN. TGY philosophy focuses on using yogic techniques as tools to connect deeply with your own intuition and heart; these same tools, then, become the platform to help you authentically facilitate classes and grow as a teacher. Through self-inquiry, group investigation, reflective OM-work, and REAL connection, we’ll uncover and experience the gift of yoga and how we can implement yoga philosophy to bring more JOY to our daily lives.

The Grinning Yogi brings passion and FUN to teacher training. Together we’ll help you cultivate your own beautiful voice as a teacher while sharing the rich principles of our practice. You will be assigned a TGY staff mentor and partnered up with another trainee, both of whom you will meet with on a weekly basis. Additionally, you will meet for 13-weekend intensives and be responsible for supplemental readings and OM-work. All of these offerings are uniquely designed to help you cultivate a relationship with yogic principles AS YOU and empower you to share you knowledge.
