VINYASA, GENTLE HATHA & RESTORATIVE TEACHER TRAINING

200-Hour Registered Yoga Teacher Training

Do you want to become a yoga teacher? Would you like to immerse yourself in practice where you can fine tune your asanas but also dive deeper into the teachings, history and philosophy of Yoga to set you apart from all the many other yoga teachers in the world? Would you like to build a solid foundation in vinyasa asana, meditation, breathing technique, devotion, yoga philosophy, restorative yoga, diet and nutrition? Do you want a YTT class that is small and focused on you where you are not one of 20+ people needing this individualized attention in this big next chapter of your life? Do you want to leave a YTT knowing more than just 1 class sequence and format that 1 type of yoga studio teaches so that you are able to teach at many studios and to many types of students?

Yes? Mind Your Body Oasis’ Vinyasa/Flow & Gentle/Yin Teacher Training is a great next chapter in your life. Mind Your Body Oasis (MYBO) strongly believes that the practices of yoga, self care regimen, and a solid foundation of nutrition and diet provide a platform and a tool to achieve and believe in yourself and your dreams. This training will be as unique and special as it will be practical. You will learn how you can apply all that you learn directly to becoming a yoga teacher (if that is what you desire) or how to live the healthy life of a yogi more fully in your existence. Everyone at MYBO is focused on you, your growth, your knowledge and building a community that can be your Oasis…your home.
