Split Basic Hatha Yoga Teacher Training begins with two weeks in September at the beginning of fall, and ends in March right at the beginning of spring. This is the perfect training for those of us who want to take this residential teacher training but cannot leave our families or jobs for a whole month at a time.
September is one of the loveliest months of the year at Yogaville. The days are comfortably warm without much humidity. Our wooded paths down to the LOTUS Shrine seem to invite us out for a leisurely walk to noon meditation where we can enter the upper sanctuary of LOTUS or join some of our classmates for walking meditation along the reflecting pools and fountains and around the Shrine itself.
After the first two weeks of instruction, we bring our lessons home with us, practice them and internalize them. Then we return in March to finish the training. March is a cooler time of year but the purple crocuses and yellow dandelions are the harbingers of spring. There is a brightness to each day and a midday warmth that announce warmer days to come. The final two weeks pass quickly and the new yoga teachers emerge from the training just like the spring flowers that are beginning to burst forth.
Our comprehensive yoga teacher certification program provides a strong foundation for personal and spiritual development, an appreciation for nurturing one’s own practice and the skills to become a knowledgeable and professional Yoga teacher.
