Cathy Valentine Yoga presents:
200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Program

Yoga is a fluid exploration of the self through movement, meditation and attention to breath. Life’s about making connections and the study of Yoga is a way, a path, a journey of connecting – first to the self and, ultimately, through gained wisdom and insight, to the world around us. Whether you are interested in becoming a Yoga teacher or just wish to enhance your knowledge of the Yogic path, Cathy Valentine Yoga 200 Hour Teacher Training program will be for you!

THE TRAINER
The program is led by Cathy Valentine who is a 200 hour certified Yogi with over 15 years of teaching experience. Her style has often been referred to as a mix of skill and spirit as each of her classes combines the physical challenge of Yoga asanas with a spiritual undertone, creating what has been referred to as an “alluring” experience. Her love of Eastern philosophy, spirituality and understanding of anatomy are all weaved skillfully into her teachings. By combining these skills with the ancient teachings of Yoga, Cathy’s goal is to encourage her students to find insight and answers to life’s deeper questions, creating transformation and liberation.

THE CURRICULUM
This 200 hour Hatha Vinyasa Teacher Training program is certified by Yoga Alliance (RYS 200). It is a complete and progressive learning experience that deepens student’s knowledge and builds a solid foundation for a working Yoga teacher in each of the following fields of study:

~ anatomy & philosophy
~ asanas & sequencing
~ teaching methodology
~ pranayama & meditation
~ energetics
~ history & philosophy
~ Sanskrit terminology
~ ethics & business of Yoga

In this training, you will learn to artfully create a class sequence and teach asanas skillfully. You will be prepared to develop safe and sensible yoga classes for all levels of competency. You will learn to accurately observe students’ bodies and assist them into optimally aligned asanas through the use of words, basic hands-on adjustments, modifications and use of props.

PREREQUISITES
This training may be taken to deepen your own knowledge of Yoga, with or without the intention of ever teaching. Either way, the training and practice schedule requires students to fully immerse themselves in Yoga. Sincere interest and the willingness to study intensely are needed. It is recommended that you have a regular Yoga practice of at least one year prior to this training.
