Teacher Training

Basic 200 Hour Certification

We are a Yoga Alliance approved YTT200 program, offering teacher training at your location. This teacher training is gentle, private and peaceful, with a lot of flexibility and designed for mature individuals who are very committed to learning and growth. I have had students complete this in 6-10 weeks. Call me at 904-233-6162 to set up a meeting. Students can choose their favorite specialization (Gentle, Kids, Therapy, Chair, or Family Yoga) for the final project.

Advanced Gentle Yoga Certification

If your YTT200 hour yoga teacher training program had a focus other than gentle yoga, there may not have been time to dive deeply into how to teach gentle classes for people with special conditions. The needs go well beyond proper alignment for a bum knee. Chronic pain and chronic disease include psychological, spiritual and environmental considerations. If you are interested in providing a transforming experience to all students, this certification is for you. This certification is 20-25 Yoga Alliance CEU Hours and you can do this privately with me. The cost is approximately $500 for a private certification, depending on which modules you want. You can pay by cash, check, MC, Visa, Discover. If you are interested call 904-233-6162 now and let’s see if our schedules work together. When you  complete the 25 CEU hours, I will present a Lifespan Yoga certificate in Gentle Yoga.

  Advanced Chair Yoga Certification

Are more people showing up at your yoga classes having trouble getting up and down from the floor? If your YTT200 hour yoga teacher training program had a focus other than gentle or chair yoga, you may not have had time to learn Chair Yoga for people with mobility problems. When mobility issues strike, your students may be trading their Yoga Mat for a sturdy chair. The chair is now the sacred space, not the mat.

Specializing in Chair Yoga is a way to reach students in all age groups, with many conditions and you can offer a more comprehensive yoga experience to students who may normally not try yoga. This certification reviews special conditions and special needs you may see in class, modifications for special conditions in a group setting, using props and how to utilize the 8 limbs into gentle yoga classes. This certification is 20-25 Yoga Alliance CEU Hours and I offer it privately and semi-privately. The first module to schedule with me is Chair Theory (4 CEUs). The cost is approximately $500 for a full private certification, depending on which modules you choose. You can pay by cash, check, MC, Visa, Discover. If you are interested call 904-233-6162 now and let’s see if our schedules work together. When you complete your CEU hours you will receive a Lifespan Yoga certificate in Chair Yoga.

Testimonials

My favorite part of Yoga Teacher Training at Lifespan Yoga® was the one-on-one with Beth, learning breathing, holding postures and Yoga Nidra. I also enjoyed putting together the sequences. It sounds selfish, but I would make my training longer because I like Beth and her classes.  —–Jennifer S., Lifespan Yoga® Teacher

Yoga Teacher Training at Lifespan Yoga® is a special type of teaching program. There is no other YTT program like it in or around Jacksonville. With small classes and individualized attention, the training is targeted to each student’s needs. It is gentle and flexible enough for those with health issues, like me. The teacher, and owner of the studio, Beth Daugherty, has many years of experience teaching and living yoga. It has taught me how to work with others like myself who have special needs. I highly recommend Lifespan Yoga® YTT if you are looking for a different way of learning to teach yoga. —–Sandy S., Lifespan Yoga® Teacher

Yoga Teacher Training at Lifespan Yoga® has had a huge positive impact on my life. The individualized attention and small class structure made the training so enjoyable and informative. I not only learned how to be an instructor, but I improved my own health and practice greatly.—-Jessica N., Lifespan Yoga® Teacher
