Life on the Mat 100 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Program

Life on the Mat 100 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Program

Spynga’s 100 HOUR Yoga Teacher Training programs are richly based on three principles that we believe are the essence to a student’s growth in their practice; Integrity, embodiment, and taking the seat of a teacher.

With our collective experience and various backgrounds, it is our continuous goal to provide a conscious platform where students can take the seat of a teacher with integrity and embody the values of a contemporary yogi living in today’s world. Whether you are interested in deepening your practice or aspire to instruct, our foundational trainings invite you to engage in your own evolution as you learn the academics and practical elements of teaching yoga with the opportunity to apply, express, and execute all that you absorb in your unique fashion. Our teachings are a blend of inspiration from traditions of Hatha, Ashtanga, Anusara and Jivamukti yoga that creates the art of vinyasa yoga.

The 100 hour yoga teacher training will deepen your personal practice and provides a basic understanding of the yoga postures within the hatha yoga tradition that specifically target and counter-balance an indoor cycling ride. You will study functional physical anatomy, an overview of yoga philosophy, an introduction to pranayama (breath work) and meditation, and learn a practical skillset to become an effective instructor. This 100 hour yoga training is ideal for students who want to deepen their practice and/or have the aspiration to teach a spyngaFlow® class with confidence, grace and ease.

Prerequisites: No formal training experience is required to register for Spynga’s Yoga Teacher Training programs; however, due to the intensity of the course, it is advised that you have had at least one year of a regular yoga practice prior to the start of the course. You will be required to take a class with our program director(s) if you are new to the Spynga community.

Complimentary Yoga! One of the greatest benefits of participating in the Spynga’s Yoga Teacher Training program is you will be given a complimentary package of classes during the course of your training.
