200 Hour Teacher Training

Dual Certification | 200 Hour RYT & Balanced Athlete Level 1

We are super excited to announce Centre Yoga's 200 hour teacher training offering the Sacred Seeds Yoga School program, created by Jacqui Bonwell and the Level One Balanced Athlete™ Certification created by Johnny Gillespie. Lead teachers, Jen Murray and Michelle Powers along with Jacqui Bonwell, Erica Magro, Johnny Gillespie and other guest teachers come together to provide a truly transformational experience.

This training will include intense study of asana (postures), pranayama, chanting, mantra, meditation and other traditional yoga techniques.

Also included in this program:

  • Principles of demonstration, observation, assisting, and instruction
  • An exploration of various styles of yoga, the qualities of a teacher, the business aspect of yoga and the student experience
  • Human physical anatomy and physiology, energetic anatomy and physiology
  • All benefits, contraindications and healthy movement patterns will be explored, as well as injury and modifications
  • Yoga philosophy, yoga lifestyle and ethics for yoga teachers
  • Business and marketing techniques

You will spend a significant amount of time practice teaching, receiving feedback and observing others teaching.

You will spend time assisting in the training and will have a requirement of non-contact hours of book reports, observing classes inside & outside the training as well as assisting yoga classes. Reading will be a big piece of your self study.

In order to become a powerful, well-equipped teacher, you MUST be dedicated to your training, your practice, your reading & your study. This program meets the Yoga Alliance requirements to be 200 hour certified teacher under Yoga Alliance as a Registered Yoga Teacher.

  • Please include your hobbies, interests, likes, dislikes and any personal information/background you would like to share
  • Please also include any history of injuries, any current physical conditions (past, present or future surgeries or illnesses should also be included)

Statements of Intention are to be emailed to: It's best to secure your spot as soon as you know if the dates are going to flow!

Please note, make up hours are your responsibility and must be approved subject material. If you need to make up any hours, this will be an additional cost to you outside of program costs. While it's okay to make up work if you have to miss a day, I HIGHLY discourage missing a training weekend. So many things arise in the group and your presence in mind, heart and body is imperative!

We would be honored to be your teachers.
