The Grinning Yogi Yoga School
Next term: August - December 2017
The Grinning Yogi’s Fall 200-Hour Yoga School + Teacher takes place over 13 weekends. Our program is intimate and engaging; students work closely with lead teachers and mentors throughout the course. In addition to the weekend intensives, we hold ‘office hours’ at TGY where mentors help further support trainees and refine their teaching skills. By graduation, trainees have a practice they can feel supported by AND take with them anywhere in the world!
The Grinning Yogi has designed a dynamic Yoga School experience, infused with creativity and CARE. Our Yoga School is led by Jamie Silverstein, Tori Greising, Lisa Tilch and Dr. Matt Van Auken. This year we also have two very special guest teachers. Sheri Celentano (Laughing Lotus NYC) will be leading an advanced asana series, and Carely Ewert will lead anatomy. Together this teaching team will guide you on a life-claiming journey of self-care, passion, growth and union with your Self through the yoga practices!
In addition to weekend modules and mentor sessions, students will be required to attend, observe, and eventually assist classes at the studio. You will be assigned a TGY staff mentor and partnered up with another trainee, both of whom you will meet with on a weekly basis. Additionally, you will meet for 13-weekend intensives and be responsible for supplemental readings and OM-work. All of these offerings are uniquely designed to help you cultivate a relationship with yogic principles AS YOU and empower you to share your knowledge. Upon graduation, you are invited to teach a special- trainee only- class at TGY!!
