September- December 2019
The Roots Love Yoga Teacher Training is a 4-month long holistic program that meets 6 weekends, 23 hours per weekend, 6 hours of Ashtanga Yoga/ Mysore Practice per week. This program is approved by Yoga Alliance at the 200-hour level for national certification. Enrollment is limited to 18 students.
The intention is to provide and embody an education necessary to establish a personal practice and a safe, healthy, long-term relationship with yoga. Upon completion of the course, you will be firmly established in a daily practice and alignment based technique. You will learn the technical foundation for classical asanas (postures), non-dualist tantric philosophy, ahimsa (non-violence), meditation, proper vinyasa, pranayama (breathing techniques), the history and roots of yoga, functional and energetic anatomy, conscious communication, and how to create skillfully aligned sequences along with scripting your classes. You will learn safe hands-on adjustments of postures from the Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga and Classical Hatha Yoga Postures.
**Holistic Physical Therapist and Bosswoman Dr. Ariele Foster will be teaching anatomy throughout.
Amazing training! Marie Belle is extremely knowledgeable, talented and passionate. She taught us a lot about the philosophy, the breathing techniques, the meditation and she demonstrated the poses while teaching so you can tell that she is actively practicing (which is very important). She really cared about us and what we will learn from her. The choice of books was great, the homework, the final test. Everything was very professional and well done. She also took the time to talk about the after training part. Overall, I would highly recommend this school to anybody who wants to be a yoga teacher. ~Christele
Roots Love Yoga YTT was a comprehensive program and transformative for me. Marie Belle is well-versed in the philosophies of Dharma and Ashtanga yoga, breath work, meditation, and physical practice and much more. The environment was comfortable and conducive to learning, offered many opportunities for growth both in mind and body. I highly recommend it for those seeking to become instructors or even to those seeking to learn about yoga as more than just a physical practice. ~Kameron K.
