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 of Yoga? Would you like to build a solid foundation in vinyasa asana, meditation, breathing technique, devotion, restorative yoga, diet and nutrition? Mind Your Body Oasis’ Spring 2017 Vinyasa/Flow Teacher Training is the next chapter in your life.
Yoga teacher training is a big decision as well as a commitment, we commend you for making it this far and considering this life changing experience. Mind Your Body Oasis (MYBO) strongly believes that the practices of yoga and a solid foundation of nutrition and diet provide a platform and a tool to achieve and believe in yourself and your dreams. This teacher 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 or yogini more fully in your existence. Everyone involved at MYBO is focused on you, your growth, your knowledge and building a community that can be your Oasis…your home.
MYBO is a registered yoga school with Yoga Alliance, which means that when you graduate you can then become a Registered Yoga Alliance Teacher at the 200 hour level (RYT-200). Besides the knowledge you will acquire through the experience itself.
We require that you have been practicing yoga for at least 6 months, preferably through MYBO class formats. This journey you are embarking on is special because it is an unfolding and a blossoming in your practice, as well as your experience and in your life. It is not so much about where you have been or where you are now, but the unlimited potential ahead. When you complete the training you will have a deeper understanding and first-hand experience of many aspects of yoga. You will be able to teach multiple levels and practitioners with a wide range of experiences and several different styles. You will have the confidence to go out in to the world and share your passion of yoga. This is an Oasis Flow training which is the format that MYBO teaches.
