Take our training.

What to expect
You will finish the 200 hour training able to teach a class anywhere.
You will have a deep understanding of the body mechanics that make up a pose and how to put poses together in a sequence to support strength, flexibility, breath, alignment, stress reduction, health benefits and deeper meaning.
You will come away able to teach yoga to people at all levels, all abilities,  and all body types. You will learn yoga philosophy and Sanskrit and will build a daily practice for yourself, using your own body and experiences to become a better teacher.
We will also use our amazing studio and teachers as a laboratory, learning how teachers with different styles find and produce their authentic voice in a class. How different types of cuing are effective, what different types of students want out of a class.

What else will you gain?
You will create a lasting bond with the people you train with. 
You will have mentors over your teaching career.
You will learn to pay attention to your own body and to communicate better with other people.

What makes us unique?
We are a studio that provides a wide variety of types of yoga that are unified by the belief that it is the yoga teacher and studio's job to help people feel safe and supported. It is the teacher's job to help people achieve things they never thought they could, and to brighten their lives. We will teach you how to help people ( and yourself) reach whatever their goals are through specific, body mechanics that allows people to do yoga they thought wasn't possible for them. We will also teach you how to inspire them.

We are a studio with a strong, welcoming community. The yoga teacher training will be the same. We are all vulnerable--that's our strength. 

We have a wide variety of teachers with expertise outside of yoga. Our yogic philosophy sessions will be taught by a philosophy professor. Our trauma informed yoga and yoga for anxiety will be taught by licensed mental health clinicians. Our prenatal portion will be taught by a massage therapist. Our Sanskrit will be taught by a teacher who studied at a Sanskrit school in Arizona. Our bench is deep.

Revitalizing Intuition, Strength, and Embodiment. A women's leadership program. 

Have you found yourself standing still in your kitchen, or bathroom, sitting in a parking lot, just wishing you could restart, revitalize? We are running on empty. It’s tough being a woman in our world right now. Lots of us have too many responsibilities, too little sleep, and lots of worry. But underneath all the busyness of our lives is something very sacred. This winter, we invite you to find it. We are holding a retreat specifically for women that fits into your schedule and your lives, but promises to help you fill up and find your power.

We are calling it RISE, because it is active, it is collaborative, it is empowering, and it is ongoing. Our hope is that this retreat will give you a safe place to start from, a sense of grounding, so that you can rise and lift the other retreat participants and women in your life. Shine teacher Beth and studio owner Sara have designed a program that emphasizes revitalization through the lens of intuition, strength and embodiment.

Through activities and discussion we will look at ways to help you feel more grounded and in control and we will take a long look at what makes us loose control. What makes us give up, self medicate, feel bad about ourselves. What do we hide from and why? And most important how do we heal, how do we change? Through RISE, we will build a community to support one another and ourselves.

RISE is a program that begins with 21 hours (spread across three months) of retreat. That time will be spent in reflection, lecture, yoga, activities, and discussion in order to examine what holds us back and provide tools to help us fill up. Once you have completed the retreat you will be a member of the first generation of The RISE sisterhood at Shine. The RISE sisterhood will meet regularly throughout the year for specialized workshops, conversations and celebrations. This is deep work; deep listening; deep learning, but we think the result will be a group of women who have tapped into what is vital in them—the tremendous gift that they are to themselves, to each other, and to the world. As a RISE member, you will have the opportunity to help shape workshops, talks and events at Shine, you will be a leader in our community. Cost of the program with membership, manual, and a self care kit is $500, we are offering $100 off early bird pricing until January 14th. If finances keep you from participating please get in touch with us. We offer payment plans and are offering two scholarships to people who submit essay or artworks based on the pillars of RISE (Revitalizing Intuition Strength and Embodiment).

Saturday, January 27th, 1:30-4:30pm
