SUMMIT YOGA 200 HOUR YOGA TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAMS
Summit Yoga is interested in your personal journey as a human. We empower each trainee to discover what really matters to you! We offer 2 different Yoga Teacher Training 200 Hour Programs and 3 types of training schedules.
WEEK(ENDS) - Hatha + Yin Yoga 200 Hour Program - 8 Weekends - approximately 2 months to complete this program - no prior yoga experience required!!!! A perfect start for absolute beginners in yoga.
This Hatha and Yin Weekend Intensive Training covers traditional Hatha yoga poses and Yin yoga poses. You will study the alignment and physical modifications for each pose. Summit Yoga teaches a modern yoga mindset of body acceptance in every pose as you begin to craft the type of healthy lifestyle that best fits your uniqueness.
This Weekend Intensive Training is divided into two yoga practice styles: Hatha (Yang) Yoga and Yin Yoga. These two Yin and Yang styles complement each other physically and mentally, providing a balanced Yoga Teacher Training experience. Our modern yoga mindset of body acceptance in every pose is embraced throughout our program. The Hatha content provides the heating/movement/alignment aspects of yoga practice while Yin provides the cooling/stillness/allowing aspects of yoga practice. The combination of heating + cooling, aligning + allowing, working + resting = a balanced total body yoga practice as well as providing a firm foundation for your healthy lifestyle and yoga teaching career.
The Hatha Yoga (Yang) portion of training focuses on traditional body heating Hatha yoga poses. Trainees learn alignment principles and options for pose modifications. Hatha yoga training focuses on building strength and flexibility in our muscles and in our mind. You will study traditional Hatha Yoga philosophy and learn about the traditional Hatha approach to living a yogic life. Ample time is dedicated to practice teaching where trainees teach, learn and practice in a positive environment.
The Yin Yoga portion of this Weekend Training continues Summit Yoga’s practitioner friendly mindset into Yin practice and teaching. Yin is a softer gentle style of yoga with fewer poses and longer hold times. Yin yoga philosophy centers around acceptance of your own unique body, listening to all your body sensations while practicing and embracing stillness. The result creates space in your connective tissues and nonjudgement in your mind. The Yin approach to meditation differs from Hatha (Yang) meditation. Trainees will learn and practice this accepting method of meditation.

WEEK(ENDS) - Vinyasa Flow (Pose Sequencing) Training 200 Hour Program - 8 Weekends - about 2 months to complete the program - some yoga experience and pose knowledge will be helpful to you in this training, but not required! Beginner yogis are absolutely WELCOME!
