YOGA ALLIANCE YOGA TEACHER TRAINING
Downtown Yoga & Healing Arts School offers a beautiful training space with the convenience of a large education room for instruction time as well as a new yoga studio to put all our knowledge into action! Our historic brick and granite yoga studio overlooks the river and Kennebec Rail Trail through big beautiful windows. With almost 4,000 square feet, we provide space for a well rounded mix of wellness practitioners and a variety of healing arts training programs.
As a Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga School, we are very proud of our high educational standards. We have created an environment which allows for exploring rich and comprehensive yoga anatomy and philosophical material in a supportive, thoughtful, nurturing environment. Although the course is designed for yoga students to develop all the skills and growth they need to teach or bring their training into a current career, it is also ideal for those who are looking to immerse themselves in their yoga and take time for reflective personal development.
We use the sacred texts of yoga to discuss yoga philosophy, both to the history of yoga and yoga as it is practiced in the West today. The methodologies we use ensure that this is a well rounded, inspiring, yet practical teacher training course, allowing for both transformation and confidence building. Although there is plenty of theory in the syllabus, we use interactive teaching methods, practical yoga sessions, and group work to help you develop confidence and autonomy.
