Amanda Dates-Beuthin and Janelle Watters-Oliel invite you to join them on a journey through the practice of the Vinyasa Yoga methodology. We will explore all aspects of the practice and if the voice of the inner teacher calls, we encourage you to listen. If you are meant to guide others, this training will prepare you to do so with integrity, intelligence, and humility.

You will learn from Janelle, Amanda and our skilled team of international yoga professionals (Marc Holzman, Silke Schroeder, Susanna Harwood RubinLeslie KaminoffAmy Matthews, etc), how to build the basic foundation on which to continue authentically deepening your own practice (first) and if called, being in service to others as a teacher (second.)

This training will span a nine-month period and is designed for working professionals, parents, and busy urban people who never thought they could make time to deepen their practice to this level.

We meet as a group one weekend per month (12 hrs minimum) and in between, you will fulfill the necessary credits (contact and non-contact hours) through: mandatory small group sessions, public classes, visiting teachers’ lectures, home practice, journaling, practice teaching, office hours, and homework assignments.

The entire group will stay connected daily via a private Facebook group, weekly via Amanda’s and Janelle’s office hours, and monthly via our weekend sessions.

This training culminates in a mandatory weekend retreat in the country in May, followed by a practical exam and a written exam.
