200HR Yoga Teacher Trainings

Our 200 HR training is broken up into Levels 1 & 2. The internationally held programs are 21 days total with Levels 1 & 2 both being 10.5 days. The program in Fort Worth is 16 days long total with Level 1 & 2 both being 8 days. This is because our schedule is slightly different while somewhere new and beautiful so that we can have time to enjoy the surroundings. Although most trainees choose to do the entire 200 HR at once, we have it broken into 2 programs just in case your schedule demands that.

Level 1

This program focuses on establishing your teaching foundation. We will first support you in understanding exactly what yoga is and how to most effectively teach it…this will be an exciting on-going discussion throughout the entire training. Something we always suggest is to get clear about what your idea of being a yoga teacher is and then to DROP IT! These strong held ideas are often false and self-limiting to new teachers. We will put a lot of hard work into getting a vinyasa class sequence down so that you can become relaxed with it. We have worked with many teachers and have lots of tricks at helping you remember so don’t worry! Our sequence is well thought out so that the postures support healthy movement and practice for your students. Through daily posture clinics you will have a strong working knowledge of the pose alignment, modifications & contraindications. We will teach you a new paradigm with posture alignment that questions the textbook teachings. We will teach you how to be 100% relevant with your cues. You will practice teach every day in order to develop your voice and confidence. By the end of this program you will be able to teach a full class. Yes there will be lots of room for growth, that’s where Level 2 comes in.

Level 2

Now that you have a good understanding of what yoga is, what it means to be a yoga teacher, postural alignment and a sequence wired within you, it’s time to refine. We will utilize many exercises to help you get even more relaxed with the sequence so that you can develop your most powerful expression. Every single teacher will have his or her own unique expression and we see it as our job to help you find and embrace it. We will help you understand what it means to truly see your students so that your words are relevant. We don’t believe that reciting a script or bullet points for any given posture is the most effective way of teaching. We will teach you to speak in a way that your students want to listen. You will practice teach a lot in order to get real-time feedback on how your teaching is landing. Although the practice teaching might sound scary—it truly is the best and fastest way to learn. Our commitment is to send you off as a powerful teacher who can teach a yoga class that is way beyond a workout. We want you to teach in a way that helps people live happier, healthier, freer lives!

200HR TEACHER TRAINING

Koh Samui, Thailand

Level 1 Sept 9-19 / Level 2 Sept 19-29, 2017

with Dave & Stacy Dockins

Complete Level 1 or both Level 1 & 2. The location of this training lies on the south coast of Koh Samui, a tropical island in the Gulf of Thailand that still has long stretches of pristine beaches and unspoiled land. Koh Samui is only about an hour away from Bangkok by air, an hour plus from Singapore, and three hours from Hong Kong. The island has the allure of a remote island paradise with the accessibility of the region’s most popular destinations. Situated on Laem Sor beach, this setting is surrounded by towering coconut trees in a quiet, spacious area, with incredible sunrises and sunsets that play with the colors of the water, sand and tropical fauna. Only a few hundred meters away is the well known Laem Sor Pagoda, which houses the remains of Leung Poo Daeng, a realized monk. The only other structures in the area are privately ownded villas. As such, our beach is private and virtually undisturbed, creating a beautiful, peaceful setting for you to enjoy your Thailand yoga teacher training with Free Life People™.

Your rooms are set back from the main retreat, perfect for quiet contemplation and relaxation. The eco-friendly buildings make use of cross ventilation, natural lighting, rainwater harvesting, and solar power. Rooms are designed for couples and singles, as well as loft style accommodations that are ideal for two people sharing. Accommodation choices:

  • Private Room with Bath for singles or couple sharing a bed.
  • Semi Private Room with Shared Bath (between two rooms) for singles or couple sharing bed.
  • Two Bedroom Loft with Bath for two people to share accommodations.

Regardless of which room you stay in, the yoga shala, restaurant and lounge, swimming pool, and beach are only one minute away. You'll make life long friends and memories for a lifetime at this training.

Plan to travel into the resort on Sept. 9th and we will kick off with a practice, dinner and meeting that evening.  Remember Thailand is 12 hours ahead in time so when booking your departure date you'll need to factor the time zone difference along with total travel time to Thailand.

200 Hr Teacher Training

Ubud, Bali / Soulshine bali

Level 1 JANUARY 27 - FEB 6 2018 / Level 2 Feb 7-17

with Dave & Stacy Dockins

Soulshine Bali was founded in 2011 by two friends, Michael Franti and Carla Swanson, whose shared love of Balinese culture inspired them to design a place where others could come and enjoy the magic of this beautiful island.

Soulshine is a boutique hotel and yoga retreat oasis located five minutes outside of the village of Ubud, Bali in Indonesia. It has been dedicated to creating a place of happiness where groups or individuals can relax, adventure, deepen their practice, eat great food, play in the sun and get back to being themselves. All of the staff's amazing team come from nearby villages and will make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive.

Soulshine Bali is an elegant mix of traditional Balinese and clean modern design. Nestled along a bubbling river surrounded by rice terraces, its goal was to create a property that flows with the natural curves of the landscape and gardens that highlight the beauty of the tropical island.

Accommodations:

Lotus Rooms - The Lotus Rooms offer air-conditioned rooms with built-in wardrobes and desks for two people. All rooms have amazing tropical garden views and nestled by a surrounding lotus pond.
