200 Hour


200 Hour Teacher Training: Begins August 24th of 2017 

Our next 200 hour teacher training program is set up in two modules. The first module meets Thursday evenings from 6:00 PM-10:00 PM beginning August 24th – October 26th, 2017 (10 weeks). The second module meets Thursday evenings from 6:00 – 10:00 PM beginning December 28th – October 26th, 2017- March 1st, 2018 (10 weeks).  There will be one additional weekend workshop required during each module and dates will be determined upon availability of students.

This program is for aspiring teachers and for all students with a desire to learn more about Yoga theory, practice and philosophy. We believe that every student is a teacher for tomorrow and are committed to pouring ourselves into this program in order to pass on absolutely everything we know to our trainees.  We also believe in giving trainees ample practice teaching time to become as comfortable as possible leading yoga classes once you graduate.

When we launched Simply Yoga, we were on a mission to create a friendly, non-intimidating, inspiring community where anyone from any walk of life could learn yoga and fit in. We take the impact of the practice seriously but we take ourselves and our community very lightly. This same warm energy pervades our studio’s teaching certification program. You’ll  be surrounded by a lighthearted, non-judgmental, energetic community that very often leads to the cultivation of lifelong friendships.
