2018 Yoga Teacher Training

Cathy Valentine Yoga presents:
200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Program at GROW Yoga Studio

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 TRAINERS
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.

Lead Trainer Cristal Toribio is an experienced Registered Yoga Teacher and Mental Health First Aid instructor. Her training includes Kundalini Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga with Shiva Rea and Somatic Freedom Techniques. Most recently she has trained to facilitate survivor support groups and suicide prevention programs with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and has completed training with the Maryland Coalition Against Sexual Assault (MCASA) in sexual assault advocacy. She is an Adjunct at the College of Southern Maryland where she has taught in the Student Success, Massage Therapy, Faculty Development and Wellness Departments.
