It has taken this seed of intention a long time to germinate but the plant is finally coming into its form. After a year of planning, and thirty years of teachings, 16 years of holding space as the Director of YAF, and many more years of living, I have teamed up with the amazing teacher and educator, JJ Gormley, Director Surya Chandra Healing Yoga School, to present Yoga Among Friends' first 300 hour yoga therapy teacher training! We are Yoga Alliance accredited. The intention of offering subsequent teacher trainings to complete a 900 hour yoga therapy teacher training program through the International Association of Yoga Therapy.
The Journey begins this year - April 2015 - which marks our 17th anniversary as one of the most highly regarded yoga centers in Chicagoland and the Midwest. I am so excited about this program and finally feel the time is now to bring these deeper tools of yoga education into a respected program.
I have been working with JJ for months to create a teaching model that will embrace the lineage of Krishnamacharya and the vast experiences we both have accrued as yoga therapists and teachers throughout our decades of combined experience. I feel confident our program will inspire, nourish and give a firm foundation for this powerful and inspiring work of teaching others from the heart. These teachings and this program are for anyone interested in further understanding the history, philosophy and depth of the mind and body and spirit. I am hopeful that teachers, psychologists, nurses, and of course all seekers will find the joy of what yoga can offer in your life.
I hope you will consider joining me on Saturday, January 31st at 3:00pm at YAF for an information session on this unique teacher training!
