200-hr Hatha Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training

Module I: 22 Sept - 15 Oct 2023 Module II: 26 Jan - 3 Mar 2024.

Dive deep within yourself. Listen. Who are you and what do you have to say? Find your voice. Embrace and express your authentic self and profoundly transform your life through the committed practice of yoga.

Join Ananda and Bruce for The House of Yoga’s inaugural Yoga Alliance registered 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training, where the depth and versatility of their cumulative 30-plus years’ experience as yoga practitioners and teachers combine to offer a unique interdisciplinary program.

Ever-the-students, Ananda and Bruce’s practices also move beyond yoga to encompass a diverse array of movement disciplines. This program thereby offers the opportunity to build a strong foundation for teaching yoga in a creative and integrative way. Ananda and Bruce will guide trainees through the process of finding their voice as teachers, inspiring them to confidently share their voice with the world.

This training welcomes any student who feels called to teach yoga, as well as anyone seeking to deepen their own knowledge and understanding of this practice and ultimately, themselves.

Hands-On Assisting Training

19 - 21 April 2024

Following up on her Hands-On Assisting workshop of last Spring, join Lisa for this first 20-hour Hands-On Assisting Teacher Training at The House of Yoga.

In groups of 2 or sometimes more, you will rediscover familiar yoga poses as well as poses coming from Katonah Yoga with the help of props and the leverage of another human body.

***

Yoga is often a solitary practice. However, by practicing posture adjustments we learn to rely on others and to trust, while communicating with them. Through these adjustments we establish a dialogue through contact, we feel and understand in our feet, in our hands what may be happening with the other.

Adjustments are meant to take you to places you would not go to by yourself, there is no goal of making the pose better, “correct” or to go deeper in the pose. Think of it more like a conversation as opposed to a monologue: a way for you to be in a pose without using so much strength, to make it more rich and fluid, to use your eyes, your hands, props and language to make the experience fuller. 

In this training, you will be introduced to fundamental concepts with regard to physical touch in a yoga space and will be provided with the opportunity to practice different adjustments on different bodies. This is a key component because all bodies are unique, feel different and will respond in their own way.

By the end of these 20 hours you will walk away with:

  1. A sense of how to adapt different adjustments to different bodies
  2. A more confident touch
  3. A clear idea of how to communicate with your words and hands

This training is primarily intended for yoga teachers or aspiring yoga teachers, but can absolutely support anyone working in the area of bodywork or just practitioners who are curious to further develop their yoga practice.

This training will consist of 20 hours over the course of a full weekend (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) from 19 – 21 April 2021.

Friday, 19 April

  • 8:30 – 12:00
