What makes a CGY Teacher Training Special

RESTORATIVE CERTIFICATION

Most 200 hour training's focus on one specific class format. In addition to learning how to structure a vinyasa style class, our training includes an immersion into teaching Restorative yoga, the difference between active vs. passive stretching, and how use props so you can lead a grounded and safe restorative based class.

AYURVEDA SELF-CARE

Ayurveda is the "knowledge of life" and a sister-discipline of yoga. We've invited Instructor, Hannah Leatherbury to teach the basic principles of Ayurveda, how they relate to yoga, and how to balance the "doshas" through an immersive, Ayurvedic "spa-day" of self-care practices.

TEACHING PREGNANT BODIES

One of the most common questions trainees have is "what do I do if a pregnant woman comes into my class"? Co-lead trainer Carrie Ganz has over 20 years experience as a doula and is our resident Prenatal Yoga instructor. In our training you'll learn how to include pregnant woman in your all-levels class safely through proper cueing, modifications and props.

COMMUNITY CLASSES

While many yoga studios and schools offer teacher trainings, not all offer a venue for their graduates to teach. We have a proud tradition of providing our YTT graduates opportunities to teach weekly community classes so they can continue to shape their teaching skills and confidence. Many of our graduates who have led community classes have gone on to teach at CGY and elsewhere.
