A broad and rich understanding that includes not only poses and breathing, but philosophy, yoga therapeutics, yoga anatomy and energetics, as well as mudra, mantras, and more. The staff at Grounded By Yoga honors all Yoga lineages. Each tradition (Iyengar, Ashtanga, Kundalini, Sivananda, etc.) has something profound to offer.
An Interdisciplinary Yoga® teacher can pull tools needed from many lineages to accommodate students of all levels and abilities. Your lead director, Sandy Hicks has 40 years experience in Meditation & Yoga and continues to deepen her knowledge nationally and internationally with renowned teachers.
Many yoga practitioners enter yoga trainings with no intention of teaching, for it is an opportunity to deepen and broaden your knowledge and experience yoga in a way you simply cannot do in regular classes.
Do I physically need to be able to….
Forget that concern, this program is open to non-yoga students as well. The yoga teacher training modules serve to educate health professionals, yoga instructors, yoga students or anyone with an interest in the science of yoga. (However, to become a registered teacher with the Yoga Alliance, a regular yoga practice is required prior to your training)
Great question. At the time of this page creation, we have scheduled: Iyengar, Ashtanga, Sivananda, Vinyasa, Yin Yoga, Anusara and Kundalini. Certified professionals dedicated to each lineage will be part of your training faculty, bringing you authentic delivery and integrity to your curriculum.
What we learn can differ from person to person. Not only is this academically beneficial, you can expect your own transformation. Click here for general & specific syllabus details.
A high degree of self-motivation is required for all aspects of the course. Training to be a yoga teacher requires dedication and faith in the process of yoga. If you do not have a current asana practice, but are simply interested in deepening your knowledge, you may apply as well and will receive a special certificate. The practice and teaching of yoga demand a high degree of self-discipline and purity. To ensure the success of the program, participants are required to attend all spiritual activities, meditation sessions, lectures and asana classes.
Our staff are professionally certified and recognized teachers and are highly skilled and experienced in the field of yoga education: Sandy Hicks, E-RYT, Wendy Stoddard CYT, Luc Watelet RYT 200, Ted D. Barnett, M.D.; Carol Barnett, Ph.D., J.D.

Generally alterations can be changed. The entire enrolled group needs to agree, and usually no later than 2 months to start time. The above does not include homework or 10 hours flex time or $35 Certificate fee. Up until 2 months before commencement – hours can be adjusted and fine tuned according to the group’s needs and 100% unanimous agreement.
