200-Hour Foundations Yoga Teacher Training
In this life-changing program, you will be provided with the tools to develop the skills and wisdom required to lead others in a vinyasa yoga class.
An in-depth study of the history and philosophy of yoga gives you an opportunity for self-study with the intent to align your own behaviors and actions with the core ethical principles of yoga.

This is not an 'online' study course in the typical sense.
The program includes both self-study and in-person practice teaching sessions.
This study style is based on the traditional yoga teacher-student relationship method of sharing knowledge.
You will study at your own pace.
The course includes 6 in-person sessions where you will be assigned an LKPY team leader to assist you with practice teaching individual segments of the power yoga sequence. These sessions will take place at the LKPY studio in Ridgefield, CT.

This is a self-paced program for those who prefer to make their own study timeline; and are highly motivated, committed individuals who prefer a self-study environment as opposed to group trainings.
The 200-hour foundations program is a course of study designed for serious yoga practitioners willing to do the hard work required to become a skilled and knowledgeable teacher.
('Serious' does not mean you are required to perform 'advanced postures'!)
