200 hours of yoga teacher training starts this weekend

I am pleased to announce that I am beginning a 200 hour yoga teacher training program through my studio, YogaWorks!  I’ll be studying under two amazing teachers, Jenny Aurthur and Julie Marx.  Teacher training is something that I have thought about, considered, rejected, meditated on, and mildly agonized over for several years.  The timing finally seems right, and I have decided to take the plunge and do the training.

I have been practicing for about 10 years.  I was drawn to yoga in high school through a TV show called Yoga Zone, took a few classes through a local community fitness program, and eventually joined a studio called when I moved to New York.  Jenny is one of the first teachers who really made a big impact on me, and I am so excited to have this opportunity to learn as much as I can from her.

If you know me, you know that yoga is an important, integral and essential part of my life.  The physicality and bodily challenge of the practice is obvious, (though if you think that yoga is mostly passive stretching, I invite you to join me for class!) but for me it is the mental work of yoga that I find most rewarding.  I hope to explore these topics more as the training goes on.  The program is 12 weeks: Saturdays and Sundays from 12-6, and also Tuesday evenings from 7 pm to 9 pm for the first six weeks.

Stay tuned for more…
