 Basic 200 Hour Certification (YTT200)

We are currently training yoga teachers at Dragon Dance Yoga on Phillips Highway and not accepting anymore into this round of training! I am happy to talk to you about the next training –call Beth at 904-233-6162.

We are a Yoga Alliance approved YTT200 program focused on gentle yoga. The program is designed for mature individuals who are very committed to learning and growth. We cover the practical, theoretical, historical, and spiritual aspects of Gentle Hatha Yoga. Yoga experience is required. Training is open to those who want to teach yoga and those who just want to learn more about a very gentle yoga practice. The program requires energy, time, dedication, and commitment. The candidate should have a dedicated personal practice and a passion for yoga.

Our goal is to provide students with:

*Thorough knowledge of Gentle Hatha Yoga postures, breathing and meditation and a comfort level in teaching Gentle Hatha Yoga

*Teaching methodology and practice teaching opportunities

*Knowledge of yogic philosophy, lifestyle and ethics

*Introduction to Yoga Anatomy and Physiology

*Opportunities for a deeper understanding of your self

*There is a focus on special needs and special conditions that people coming to yoga may encounter. LIFESPAN YOGA® graduates work with students with Stage 4 cancer, brain damage, anxiety, ADHD, fibromyalgia, lupus, MS and many other conditions. Students in the program will gain an understanding of these conditions.

*LIFESPAN YOGA® is organized around the 8 Limbs of yoga and how these are applied through all the developmental life stages. LIFESPAN YOGA® graduates work with ages 2-92.

After you complete the 200 hour training you will receive a certificate of completion from LIFESPAN YOGA®. Completion of the 200 hour program will qualify and fulfill requirements to register with the Yoga Alliance at the 200 Level.

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
