Things to Consider When Choosing a Training

Whether you are looking for a career change, or want to enhance your personal practice, signing up for a 200 hour training is a big commitment.  It is important that you pick a training that will be a good fit for your interests, schedule and learning style.  Here are some things to think about:

Style
Yoga Haven graduates will learn to teach an alignment conscious, vinyasa style class.  You will understand the fundamentals of poses, and learn to give clear, concise instruction.  We stress the importance of making yoga accessible to a wide range of students with understanding of anatomy and thoughtful modifications.

Focus
Yoga Haven’s training has a strong foundation in asana and teaching techniques, but trainees will also delve into the historical context of the practice as well as key philosophical texts.  Many students find the history and philosophy portion to be one of their favorite parts of the training.
Time Frame
Can you imagine fitting 4 years of college into 1 year?  It is similar to fitting a 200 hour training into 1 month.  Yoga Haven’s program spans 8 months, allowing trainees the time to absorb and integrate the material.  Teacher training is not like cramming for a test in high school.  We want to provide you with the time and space for a full and lasting experience.

Value
The 2017-2018 training cost is $3400.  This includes 8 months of unlimited yoga classes.  A comprehensive manual is included.  The only additional cost is history and philosophy and anatomy books (approx. $100).

Reputation
Yoga Haven has been running a 200 hour teacher training annually, since 1998.  Yoga Haven was voted Westchester Magazine’s best yoga studio in 2001, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2011, 2012, 2014 & 2015.

Personal Transformation
This training is based heavily on the spiritual and historical aspects of yoga.  Most trainees report back that far beyond learning to teach yoga, they learn to take yoga off the mat and into their daily lives.

Support
Over the 8 months, trainees form bonds that last long after graduation.  Our instructors are passionate about what they teach and want to see you succeed.
