I would like to express how very proud I am of the lovely women, and men that have graduated from 200, 300, & 500 hour teacher training over the years.Yoga Bala has been offering teacher trainings on a yearly basis for 8 years, hard to believe!
I have decided I will not be running a Teacher Training in 2018, a year off to shift my focus a bit.
So Now is the time to go for it!! I will be offering an accelerated 200 hour training beginning July 28th 2017. Guiding students thorough a training is one of my favorite things to do. I am looking forward to this last training and the closeness I feel with each and every student during the process. In this training because of the short time frame we will get to be together a lot for a 4 month period. Amazing new and healthy habits will be formed during this training.
The four Monthly Modules are taught by owner and Training facilitator Karrie AuBuchon with special guest teacher Kate Potter this year. Modules can be taken by someone who isn’t pursuing a teacher training certification, many students just want to learn more so the monthly training’s will be open to all students. Though often, as happened with me, learning more and more about yoga, teaching friends and co-workser eventually turned into the decision to teach and open my own studio. So if students decide to later pursue the 200 or 300hr certification, they can retroactively include the Modules .

Teacher Training programs have soared over the years they are popping up everywhere and the prices are insane up to $4000. 00 . I find it appalling, as quality has gone down and price has gone up. I have had students ask me why my program is “cheaper” than others. I have not raised the price of my training in 8 years because when I took different trainings over the years it was very difficult to find the money and time off work. It can be difficult to commit to something that sometimes feel self indulgent. Yoga will help you, help others if the desire is in your heart. I promise to give you everything I have learned from my amazing teachers and experiences. Yoga Bala Teacher Training is top quality, the best around. Please feel free to ask others who have graduated!
