Grateful Yoga is pleased to offer a registered teacher training program in accordance with the 200 and 300 hour Yoga Alliance standards.
The Grateful Yoga registered teacher training program is designed with the utmost flexibility in mind. Admission to the program is rolling and will remain open until full. Students are encouraged to come as often as their schedule allows, and are not required to attend every session. Individuals will complete the training at their own pace depending on their availability. Students may gain hours observing, assisting, journaling, teaching, and practicing in and around the studio in Montpelier or in the Dominican Republic. Whether your schedule allows you to come daily, monthly, or seasonally, this training is designed to be accessible to many lifestyles.
To register with Yoga Alliance, students are required to complete 200 hours of training, 180 of these hours must be with Chrissy Lefavour or Sorsha Anderson. The training revolves around a very simple and authentic set of core values which are discussed during each session. While the location, form, and method of the training may change, the fundamental learning objectives are always the same. Hours are divided into five main categories of learning;
Teach, practice, technique
Anatomy and physiology
Ethics & lifestyle
