200-Hour Immersion and Teacher Training Announcement from Amy:
So, I have been thinking and watching so many studios have PACKED teacher training programs and pumping out new yoga teachers. I’m also getting a LOT of calls from certified teachers wanting additional training because they feel under-prepared to teach. I completely understand that feeling and felt the exact same way! There is a LOT to learn in a beginner 200 hour training and endless amounts to absorb. The brain can only retain so much and the journey can only go so fast. As the environment changes, as the student changes, as our needs change–so must immersions and training programs. So YOGALOVE IS GOING OLD SCHOOL.
We are going one-on-one yoga mentorship training at YogaLove. I understand that may not seem economically efficient for a studio, but I’m not concerned about that. I’m concerned about teaching and helping students get to where they want to go as a teacher. So here is how YogaLove’s 200-hour program will go:
-You and Amy (or teacher of your choice at YL) will start your teachings one-on-one based upon your current yoga interests and we will study deeply.
-We will work in 50 hour chunks and break up topics until you can teach them back because you embody the lessons.
-Once you hit your 200-hour completion and can fully teach a class with assists, pranayama, philosophy and your own VOICE, you will get your certificate through YogaLove and the Yoga Alliance. This may take you a year or 10 years, but you will be ready to walk the path of a yoga teacher in confidence.
-You will teach practice classes to the community before you’re on your own. As many as you need.
-You will assist Amy’s Saturday classes until you feel so comfortable assisting, your helping strangers on the street feel better in their own posture (just kidding–but you get the drift here).
-Liked the benefit of having free classes while you were in training? Fine, you get 5 months of free classes while your in training. That was equivalent to what you have gotten in the traditional offering YL had.

(This training is open to all YA certified teachers for 30 hours (half contact/half non-contact hours) of continuing education. It is ALSO open to any students and wellness/ healthcare/caregivers professionals who want to learn more about restorative practices: for non-credit hours. Certificates of completion are presented after all outside classwork and assignments are completed.)
This training is very extensive and expansive; connecting to restorative yoga from more than just the physical dynamic of asana. We dive into deep and yet simple practices to build your restorative toolkit and create a more dynamic practice for yourself and your students.
We will cover 15 common restorative asanas, as well as some unique variations and a list of preparatory asanas. Each pose will be experienced using a wide variation of props and assisting; as well as appropriate sequencing and timing for restorative classes. We will cover over a handful of pranayama practices (breath work) to help connect students to softening and restfulness, as well as to the subtle body. This training will include learning several meditations that are applicable to restorative classes, both seated and reclined; including a basic yoga nidra.We work with mudra practices and mantra practices as well, to build a deeper connection to vibration, energy and elevated consciousness. This training will also include an Ayurvedic component, giving the instructor a whole new viewpoint to restorative from the perspective of the doshas, the seasons, and the time of day. We will also discuss scents and poetry and sacred, soothing music to create an even more restful and delightful atmosphere for our restorative setting. Each participant receives a 50+ page manual, designed by Rachel, that includes all that we cover in the training. Participants also receive access to an online database Rachel has created over years of leading this training; filled with imagery of each posture variation, assisting photos, recordings of all meditations and practices, as well as the video and audio from their own training.
