Summer in a college town like Chapel Hill, NC, is glorious. Parking is abundant, and beer trucks don’t block the downtown streets. The sun is up early; evenings are sultry and lovely; and summer sublets are easy to find with two-thirds of the population out of town. So come join me for one or more of these wonderful offerings at Carrboro Yoga.
Join our 200-hour yoga teacher training intensive. Immerse yourself in yoga’s history, structure, and philosophy as we study the major styles practiced in America today. Our three-week intensive runs July 18–August 9. Whether you plan to teach or not, you’ll gain a rich understanding of yoga and its role in your life. Last year’s program included a rising college freshman, an ex-lawyer, and everyone in between! Read more here and feel free to send me your questions (and applications). If the intensive doesn’t work, we also offer an eight-month program during the school year.
Our 500-hour advanced studies yoga teacher training helps teachers of all backgrounds refine their teaching skills. Deepen your understanding of pedagogy, philosophy, and professionalism to better serve your students and your community. This year, we are offering several of the modules in a summer intensive format, which means you can be virtually done with your coursework by summer’s end! These modules are also open to the public—and we give retroactive credit for them, so if you later apply to the advanced studies training, you’ll get credit for them:
Every summer, a fantastic group of colleagues from around the world come enjoy a week of work together. Several then sign up for our advanced studies training, and many go on to certification in Sage Yoga for Athletes. The five-day intensive (also available online anytime at Sage Yoga Teacher Training) covers the philosophy, physiology, psychology, pedagogy, and profession of teaching yoga to athletes of all sports and levels. Read more and sign up here!
If you aren’t a yoga teacher, know that coaches and personal trainers also regularly enjoy the five-day intensive. If you aren’t a yoga teacher but would like to be, combine this five-day with the three-week 200-hour yoga teacher training, which starts the day after the five-day intensive ends—in a month, you’ll be on your way toward helping athletes feel and perform better!
Starting Monday, November 2, I'll be leading weekly small, physically distant, fully masked classes at Carolina Yoga Company in Carrboro. Preregistration is required.
