How would it feel to be an inspiring, confident and compassionate yoga teacher?
Imagine teaching inspiring yoga classes where you get to share your love of yoga while making extra money.
But right now you might be feeling stuck in your yoga practice and you’re ready to dive deeper but unsure of the next-step.
You’ve been doing yoga for a while and now you’re itching to learn more and share with others the many ways yoga has helped you but you don’t think you’re confident enough to teach yoga.
Becoming a yoga teacher is the natural next step when yoga has changed your life. It’s normal to be nervous and unsure about teaching. Teaching is a skill you can learn and I can teach you.
Samantha Harrison Yoga’s 200 hour program gives you the fundamental instruction you need to begin teaching competently, effectively, and to a range of individuals. The program focuses on providing future yoga teachers with safe, alignment based teaching practices that work for a range of body types and bone structures, breaking down poses into individual actions to teach beginners, and cultivating a strong personal yoga practice that is not only physical, but mental, spiritual, and emotional and prepares you for yoga out in the “real world” and not just yoga on the mat or in the studio. The program also has a strong focus on practice teaching by having students start practice teaching after the first weekend enabling teachers to graduate with more teaching experience and a higher comfort level with teaching and learning to truly teach with your words first (versus demonstrating or assisting)Lindsay Cortright

Sometimes we get to go outside!
What are the biggest things you feel you’ve gained from your training?
Sharing space and conversation with others interested in yoga and spiritual growth has been huge. Also learning how yoga benefits the body and mind- specifically the body-mind connection and learning to be open not only to new possibilities, but also that the possible “right” ways of movement depend on each person’s unique structure
