Why Me? 10 Great Reasons.

So, you're considering YOGAthletica Teacher Training. Awesome!

Oh...and you're considering a bunch of others, too. Okay.

Here is why YOGAthletica 200-Hour Teacher Training Intensive is your best training option:

1. Shana has been teaching yoga full-time since March 2002. Her extensive experience and proficiency with the practice is almost unparalleled in the industry.

2. Shana teaches all of her own trainings. Other trainings are often led by teachers with as little as only one or two years of experience.

3. While other trainings are usually taught by a teacher reading straight from someone else's manual, Shana actually wrote the manual. You receive a 120-page YOGAthletica manual for lifelong reference, but Shana's actual teaching is 100% off-book. So, you learn from her knowledge and experience instead of just regurgitating information.

4. YOGAthletica training groups are small and intimate. That means unlimited personal attention and assistance. In addition, it fosters close relationships with other trainees...and no cliques.

5. Unlike most teacher trainings that focus on practicum, YOGAthletica teacher training emphasizes what is most important...actual teaching. Other trainings graduate students with knowledge and asana proficiency, but no teaching skills or experience. In YOGAthletica training you teach from Day One.

6. Other trainings' finals usually have you teaching a ten-minute (or so) sequence or worse...sometimes just one pose! On your last day of YOGAthletica training, you will be teaching a full hour-and-a-half class.

7. Shana is well-known for her unique ability to break down poses in a logical and intelligent way. The focus is on understanding the logic of the practice instead of just memorizing it. A-ha moments are nonstop.

8. Philosophy is learned in a discussion format, instead of lecture. You will go in-depth and personalize the yoga philosophy in a way that you can relate to your own life.

9. YOGAthletica training teaches classical alignments of the Krishnamacharya tradition (Astanga & Iyengar), as well as the Sanskrit etymology and proper translations for each asana.

10. The Intensive Immersion format means that for two weeks you will live and breathe your yoga without diversion or distraction. This makes for an all-encompassing experience that ties you to your practice in a way that weekend-only trainings simply can't.

      Hi Carly! I am in the process of planning my next teacher training right now.
      Due to COVID, my plan is for Summer 2021 (between June and August) when the vaccine will be available to all and we can assure a safe experience.
      You can sign up for my mailing list towards the bottom of any page on my site to be informed on new trainings and workshops! ­čÖé
