New 500-Hour Yoga Teaching Training Program: Local Yoga Instructors Offer Training
Shamrock Wellness is offering a 500-hour Yoga Teacher Training program, with a focus on Integrative Yoga Therapy, in 2014. This nationally recognized certification program immerses the student in advanced yoga knowledge and practice, creating a foundation from which they will be able to integrate the benefits of yoga more deeply in their own lives and into the lives of others.
The program, registered with the Yoga Alliance, is a joint venture of Melissa Webb, founder of Breath Life Yoga, and Eric Banter, co-founder of Shamrock Wellness. Both are E-RYT 500-level certified with Yoga Alliance and Banter received his Yoga Therapy Certification from Nancy Schalk.
“Whether you feel called to serve using yoga to its full healing potential or want to advance your yoga teaching knowledge to include pranayama and meditation, this certification program will surround you with the tools to begin this transformation for yourself and others,” states Banter.
The program will consist of three, 10-day yoga intensives each day from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. The intensive dates for 2014 will be January 22 to 31 (Anatomy), April 23 to May 2 (Meditation & Healing Energy) and September 10 to 19 (Practicum). Students have two years to complete all three intensives. The first two are prerequisites for the third intensive (Practicum).
