200-HR VINYASA YOGA TEACHER TRAINING
MAY 31 - SEPTEMBER 30, 2018
FOUNDER: Reyn Lambert
LEAD TRAINERS: Lindsey Crow and Catherine Burke
With additional instruction by guest faculty.
Deepen your personal practice and learn to guide others with confidence and skill. This 200-Hr comprehensive training presents a methodology of Vinyasa yoga that is rooted in the foundations of alignment and the art of intelligent and effective sequencing. Throughout the four-month program, we will study asana, technical alignment principles, anatomy and philosophy in an in-depth and personal format. We will read and discuss the foundational yoga texts, learn pranayama techniques, and explore the subtle and energetic bodies. You will commit to yourself and your practice in new and deeper ways, and use that insight to teach from your own authentic voice and experience. This training is not just open to aspiring teachers, but to all dedicated students looking to evolve in their practice as well as their self awareness through the art of Yoga.
The training has been organized in accordance with standards set forth by Yoga Alliance, one of the leading global yoga affiliations. Upon completion of this training, you will receive a certificate which you can use to register with Yoga Alliance at the RYT-200 level.
*Interested students should have at least one year of consistent practice.

BREAKDOWN OF HOURS IN ACCORDANCE OF YA STANDARDS
84 hours: Training Techniques: Students will both practice and learn to teach structurally- aligned asana through asana intensives exploring all categories of poses (standing poses, backbends, forward folds, hip openers, twists, arm balances, and inversions). This portion of the program will also include intensives rooted in the traditional styles of Ashtanga and Iyengar as well as seminars on sun salutations, pranayama, and meditation.
30 hours: Teaching Methodology: Students will learn and apply techniques for creative & effective sequencing, hands-on assists, principles of demonstration, as well as precise use of language and voice.
20 hours: Anatomy and Physiology: Includes both the study of anatomy and physiology (bodily systems, organs, etc.) along with their application to the yoga practice (benefits, contraindications, etc.). The bulk of this section will focus on the physical body, but we will also incorporate a seminar on energetic anatomy and the subtle body.
30 hours: Yoga Philosophy, Lifestyle and and Ethics for Yoga teachers: Includes the study of foundational yogic philosophies from both the Hindu and Buddhist traditions as well as progressive views on ethics and lifestyle viewed through the lens of trauma-informed awareness, inclusivity training, and integrating core values into one’s teaching and community.
20 hours: Practicum: Observe and assist lead trainers in a designated weekly class and practice teaching from your own heart & wisdom.
Additional non-contact hours: Will be spent writing book reports for required readings; attending classes at Reyn; and completing brief written assignments in response to a portion of those classes
*Participants will be required to attend a minimum of 3 classes per week at Reyn Studios. While these classes will exceed the 200 hour mark for required hours, we believe the immersion in practice is essential. You will be given an unlimited package for the duration of the training which is included in the cost of enrollment in this training.
