We believe that Yoga Teachers have a great responsibility. So many can benefit from Yoga with improved core strength, bone density, immune health, and emotional stability. Our Yoga Teacher Training programs provide teachers in training with a deeper understanding of Yoga anatomy, biomechanics, and neuroscience.
Our in-person Teacher Training Program is offered on weekends. We also host individual workshops that are appropriate for anyone wishing to gain a deeper understanding of their own bodies and practice.
Our coursework is approved for Continuing Education Hours by Yoga Alliance®. Yoga Integrated Science teachers in training learn to understand and apply the latest scientific research in anatomy, biomechanics and yoga philosophy to the art of yoga practice.
Any of our Teacher Training Courses can be taken a-la-carte for personal interest or for Teacher Certification with RYT. Our next course is starting soon!
This 7-month program meets one weekend each month. Learn to understand human anatomy. Students will cover how to apply isometric resistance to guide strength and mobility. This course will cover the following topics:
These advanced classes help students further understand the anatomy that governs individual poses and the limitations that may be experienced by special populations. You will gain a deeper understanding of the many variations of poses and how to create modifications to address individual issues. Due to COVID-19, we are not be providing any in-person Advanced Courses until further notice.
Our Program has been approved for submission to Yoga Alliance®. Go to www.yogaalliance.org for more information on the RYT certification and application process. Students are responsible for submitting their own paperwork for certification.
“I hardly know where to begin describing my experience with Yoga IS… The 200 Hr Teacher training literally changed how I personal train clients, prepared me to teach others their yoga practice and how to become stronger inside and out and be kind to the body. The instructor, Lauren Eirk presented the class in such a way that it was relatable to women and men with lots of ego. After her teaching I am proud to say I have a yoga practice and that I educate my classes as she has taught me. Best money I’ve spent for personal growth ever!”
Michael Bowers, RYS Virginia Graduate 2013
“The yoga I.S.® RYS 200 hour Teacher Training Program is absolutely life-changing, and has changed the way I view myself and my prospective students. I think less in terms of flexibility and more in terms of skeletal structures and anatomies to accept and nurture, less in terms of pretty Instagram pictures and more in terms of real yogic philosophy. The combination of yoga IS founder’s Lauren’s no-nonsense knowledge and teaching with master instructor Donna O’Bryan’s gentle and inviting style is a powerful one; you will leave this program changed, grateful and more knowledgeable than you could have imagined! Get ready to Shine!!”
