200 HOUR POWER VINYASA YOGA
TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAM
Director: Lyn Kehoe
Training Staff: Wendy Boscia
"....I am grateful to Lyn for her outstanding YTT Program I had just completed. Not only did I obtain the technical knowledge needed to teach which included a greater understanding of the asanas and the principles of alignment, I was also able to find my voice and teach with great confidence. The degree of practice teaching time and constructive feedback from Lyn and her staff were a tremendous benefit in guiding me through this process. I finished this training program well prepared and incredibly inspired to teach effectively to a diverse body of students. What an awesome experience it has been. Thank you!" J.O.
"Buddhi Mat is the greatest yoga studio around! I have learned so much from their teacher training program! The teachers there are professional, supportive, and truly inspiring!"
"Buddhi Mat is a beyond amazing yoga studio. The director Lyn is exceptional and devoted to her practice and philosophy. Each teacher at buddhi mat is outstanding, beautiful sequencing, powerful classes intended to build a strong body and flexible mind. I cannot recommend buddi mat more, it will change your life; I know it did mine!"
Buddhi Mat Power Yoga is recognized as a leader in the area for its Yoga Teacher Training program.
With almost 20 years of experience and the first to bring Power Yoga to the area, founder and director Lyn Kehoe will facilitate and be the lead teacher in this program. With a reputation for helping teachers to find their authentic voice, you will leave this training with the tools and ability to guide a class with skill, leadership and knowledge.
Buddhi Power Yoga Teacher Training Program will prepare you to lead an all-levels power yoga class – beginners to experienced students.
We offer more actual practice teaching time than any other program in the area.
We keep the training group size small. This allows for more practice teaching time for each trainee during training weekends.
each trainee will teach a FULL 90 minute class at the end of training - not group teach a class like many trainings.
You will learn to weave a perfect blend of technical knowledge and philosophy that speaks directly to the students, while still keeping the pace of the class.
Emphasis will be on how to
apply yoga philosophy and principles not only in teaching, but also in every day living.
Learn to take control and command a class as you encourage students to be guided by their intuition - Buddhi - and work intelligently on their mats.
A minimum of 12 months yoga practice experience is recommended.
However, trainees are not required to perform advanced asanas.
This program is for anyone interested in deepening their understanding of yoga.
Be prepared to commit and work hard during training session. But also plan to spend time outside of the classroom practicing, reviewing training lessons and completing non-contact hour assignments.
We believe that teaching yoga is not something you "do", but something you "live". This 10 month program allows you to completely immerse yourself in the process. Finish the program with the ability to teach yoga, not just instruct.
Lyn Kehoe will be your lead teacher in the training.
Supported by various Buddhi Mat instructors.
