The 2018 hometown version of my five-day intensive on teaching yoga to athletes will be Monday–Friday, July 9–13, this year. (You can also catch it online anytime at Sage Yoga Teacher Training.) This is always a highlight of my teaching schedule—not only do I love the content, the students are reliably wonderful and everyone falls in love with Carrboro during their stay.
The intensive is part of our advanced studies (aka 300- or 500-hour) yoga teacher training—if you choose to enroll in the advanced studies YTT after the workshop, you’ll still get credit for it toward your course work. I promise you’ll go home inspired. Early bird rates apply—sign up now! Register here.
Participants will gain a new awareness of the parallels between yoga and sports training and will leave feeling empowered to teach yoga to athletes in studio, gym, team, or one-on-one settings. The workshop may also be used for CEUs and CECs; contact us for details.
This intensive parallels the content of Sage’s online course on teaching yoga to athletes. After the training, you can choose to upgrade to a certification track. Upon completion of a take-home exam and submission of a teaching video, participants who are already teaching at the Yoga Alliance 200-hour level or have comparable experience will receive a certification in teaching yoga to athletes. In addition, the certification track includes free access to the online version of the course, which contains resources and specific sequences for working with different sports and needs, as well as ongoing support from Sage and your colleagues.
Many hotels are located a short drive from the studio, including a Hampton Inn, and great AirBnB options in easy walking distance (no car needed!). Read more at our travel accommodations page. The studio is located just above the wonderful local co-op, with a hot bar, extensive salad and sushi bars, and bakery. In addition to learning a ton, expect to enjoy your stay in our beautiful town.
Monday, July 17–Friday, July 21, 10:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m. and 2:00–5:00 p.m.
