Teacher Training 

​​​​​​​​​

Essential Yoga Teacher Training of Springfield, MO is a 200 & 300 hour inspirational, educational, and supportive style of hands-on teacher training.
 
Our program offers an extraordinary opportunity for complete immersion into yoga and all its dimensions. This comprehensive program will provide you with the skill, knowledge and confidence to begin teaching yoga. The course is also appropriate for those who may not be interested in teaching but simply wish to advance their training in the study of Yoga. For teachers who currently have their 200-hour certification from a registered yoga school, our program may offer them an additional 300-hour certification allowing registration with the Yoga Alliance as an RYT 500.
 
Although Vinyasa is at the core of the teacher training asana practice, Yin, Power, Restorative and various other styles of hatha yoga will be explored. Students will enjoy a unique holistic approach to yoga training... using both physically challenging, and subtle, less apparent facets of yoga. This approach will greatly enhance the student’s appreciation of all styles of yoga practice, and expand to encompass all aspects of a balanced approach, both physically and spiritually.
 
Topics of training include, but are not limited to Roots of Yogic Philosophy, Modern Styles, Ashtanga (Living the Eight Limbs of Yoga), Pranayama (Yogic Breathing Techniques), Meditation, the Subtle Body, even the Business of Yoga, along with developing a consistent and ever improving physical practice (Asana). After graduation from our program, teachers are certified through Essential Yoga and eligible to register with the Yoga Alliance. All eligible retreats and workshops qualify for contact hours toward program completion and continuing education units (CEU’s).
