200 Hour YTT!

Hey folks let me start by saying I have incredible news that I am so happy to share with you all.

This Fall starting in October (13th) I will be hosting my very own 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training approved by the Yoga Alliance!!! This will be a weekend only course, ending in January (13th) and will cover multiple types of classes including Hatha, Vinyasa Flow, Powerflow, Yin, and Chair Yoga. Class/lecture will be held at a studio located in Fairfield, NJ called synergy. (www.sptfit.com)

Alongside me we will have several guests including Chrissy Kimmy (https://www.instagram.com/chrissykimmy/) who specializes in Yin yoga. She will be my backbone to this entire course, helping us with demonstration of poses, adjustments, health topics and finding your yogic voice.

For our anatomy section we will have my friend and yogi Dr. Noah Dekoyer (https://www.instagram.com/ndekoyer/). Noah is a chiropractor and business owner of over 10 years, with an extreme love and passion for nutrition. He offers multiple online courses about genetics and health while also maintaining a worldwide podcast in which he hosts many nutritionists and founders of products such as matcha and mushroom coffee. He will go over all bones in the body, muscles, and talk about variations on poses for different aches, injuries, and ailments. His lectures are something you won’t want to miss.

For our philosophy sections of the course we will feature special guest Dan Litvin. Dan is not only an amazing 500 Hr yoga teacher, but he comes from a family of healers through the practice of Aryuvedic principles and beliefs. He will not only go over the basics of yoga philosophy but will deeply explain his heritage including nutritional diet and holistic medicinal options. He is the owner and founder of the Aryuvedic Insititue of Yoga in Montville, NJ and someone I get to call my friend. I am looking forward to his section of the course as his energy is just so much fun to be around.

For our inversions section of the course I will be hosting Candace Moore (www.yogabycandace.com or https://www.instagram.com/yogabycandace/) who is by far one of the strongest women I know. Her story much reminds me of mine, while being ill made her realize that she wanted to finally have a career that meant something to her and changed the lives of others for the better. She specializes in strength building and will be sure to show you how to teach inversions safely while also teaching the proper set-up/pre-workouts for these inversions. Candace has successfully hosted dozens of retreats all around the world and teaches workshops throughout the US (even some international ones!). I had the honor of being on her Bolzano, Italy retreat last year with Gary and it was probably the best trip I’ve ever been on. She will discuss briefly the business of yoga, how she started, and talk about her wonderful path of being a traveling yogi. She is not only a great teacher… she is a big reason I decided I wanted to teach yoga. I cannot thank her enough for being a part of my journey, both with her online videos, workshops, retreats, and now coming to Boone Studio to help me with this training.

Aside from all these amazing guests, I will be doing most of the lectures helping you safely guide students in and out of poses.. creating creative and fun sequences, and learning a about nutrition, healthy trends, and meditation. The course is designed much like a yoga class…. we will start with the basics, work our way up to inversions, and slowly make our way back down to our savasana. Please note you do not need to have any type of inversion in your practice, you do not have to teach after taking this course…. maybe you just want to deepen your practice? Maybe this is much of a learning experience for you and the principles and philosophy of yoga mean more to you…. whatever the reason is for taking this course and obtaining your certificate it will be well worth the time and cost.

The cost of the program is $3000 if paid in full or will be $3200 if paid in monthly payments. I strongly suggest putting down your $500 deposit to save your spot because only the first 20 people will be accepted into our program…. and P.S. 3 spots are already taken.. so don’t wait! You can call Synergy today or check their website for more information!Screenshot_2018-08-18-07-13-39(1)
