The Best Way to Learn Yoga

In 2011 I made the exciting / scary / life-changing decision to take my first Yoga Teacher Training. I knew I loved practicing yoga, I knew I wanted to learn more, and I knew YTT would be the best way to learn everything I could about yoga.

10 years of training and mentorship later, I've taken the best of everything I've learned and put it into one place. Anatomy, sequencing, philosophy, pose breakdowns, trauma informed cueing, meditation, yoga history, the chakras, Ayurveda, pranayama; it's all here, organized into 3 in-depth phases.

In a few short weeks you'll have the skills to teach any student from any background with confidence and clarity. Starting with you! Whether you decide to teach nor not (I never thought I'd be a teacher), you'll have all the resources you need to deepen a lifelong practice and a start a thriving career as a certified yoga teacher. 

Class meets every Tue & Thu, 6 - 8:30pm CST Mar 23 - Jun 24  live on Zoom. There is a week off every 5th week. 
I'll be there with you every week. See you there!

What makes the Quietmind Yoga Teacher Training different than other offerings?

This training was designed from the beginning to be entirely online. After 10+ years of trainings I felt the online environment would be the best way to learn yoga for many reasons.

This training is based on real world experience of teaching 5000+ hrs of classes in-person and online with students from all ages and backgrounds. Most trainings teach primarily asana. This training teaches all aspects of yoga. in 10 Core Competencies. 

The biggest difference between this training in others is:

  • CURRICULUM: Rather than focusing on Asana and not seeing how it all fits together, you'll learn 10 Core Competencies in three phases with a clear step-by-step structure.

  • TEACHING: Rather than teaching a few times without feedback then having one practicum at the end you'll start teaching a weekly live class from day 1. You'll get weekly practice teaching peers. All with feedback from the lead teacher.

  • SELF STUDY: Rather than a few recommended books you'll get summaries of the recommended reading + a wide scope of recommended audio, video and texts to supplement training.

  • MENTORSHIP: Rather than having limited time with your lead teacher you have a small group mentoring with lead teacher twice a week + a private FB group and direct messaging availablity  throughout training

  • RECORDINGS: Rather than having to be live at every class with no recordings you have 2 year access to review any part of the training any time on any device

  • YOUR PRACTICE: Rather than a checklist with suggested classes you have a 60 day sadhana (daily practice) with the lead teacher + weekly themes to apply and integrate what you learn in training

  • PROGRESS: Rather than not being clear where you are in training and fallen behind you see a progress bar every time you login. Mark each hour complete as you go through training so you always know where you are at in the training

  • FORMAT: Rather than being designed to be in person this training is designed to be 100% online and utilize the unique benefits of online training like breakout rooms, recordings, multiple media formats and access on all devices.

What are all the logistics?
  • 1 year of previous yoga experience required before training

  • Stable internet connection required

  • Device with video capabilities required (any modern smartphone or tablet)

  • Meet twice weekly on Zoom for 3 hours each time

  • Choose the schedule (above) that works best for you

  • Practice yoga 5 days a week with recorded classes (1 hour each)

  • You start teaching a weekly Facebook Live or Zoom class (30 to 60 min)

  • Weekly quizzes to test your knowledge

  • Complete 2 additional hours of self study and homework assignments each week of training

  • All meetings are on Zoom at the same link

  • All recorded material is on your online classroom that you can access from any device

  • Your first year of yoga teachers insurance is included in tuition

Is the Quietmind Yoga Teacher Training going to work for me?

if you want to develop all of the skills and qualities mentioned in the above questions, I am confident this training is one of the best in the world to help you do just that. Yoga is a lifelong practice and this is the foundation that will help you succeed as a teacher and deepen your practice for years and years to come.

The feedback from past graduates has been phenomenal and I have put my life's work into this training. However, if for any reason you are not satisfied by the second week of training I will provide a 100% refund.

If you need to stop or pause your training at any point after that just let me know and I will gladly transfer you to the next available class and apply your payment to that or any other Quietmind Yoga offering. 

What is the Yoga Alliance and do I need to register with them?

The Yoga Alliance is a non-profit organization founded in 1997 in the United States that holds the country’s largest registry for yoga instructors and schools.

The Yoga Alliance does not provide specific training, but offers a set of standards that are recommended for teacher trainings to follow.  

The Yoga Alliance is often misunderstood to be an accrediting body, but it is not. It is a registry of teachers, schools, and studios who pay annual fees to be listed on the Yoga Alliance registry. The guidelines are not regulated or enforced and a student could become a certified teacher with the Yoga Alliance regardless of whether their teacher followed the guidelines or not. 

I have chosen not to register with the Yoga Alliance. I do stay up to date of what their standards are and I have designed my training to meet and exceed their standards - focusing on 10 Core Competencies and lots of practice within a 200 hour framework, rather than just a set number of hours. Having attended and taught several trainings I continue to adapt my training to be best suited to the needs I hear students struggling with, particularly in Anatomy, Philosophy, teaching skills. Rather than focus on large classes I limit class size, emphasizing 1-1 mentorship and giving you extensive practice teaching and applying what you learn rather than asking you to just sit through long lectures. I help you make yoga and mindfulness an engrained habit in your lifestyle, which is the most valuable place to draw from as a teacher.

If you decide to teach, the only credential that any studio would ask for is that you are a certified teacher, have completed a 200 hour training and in most cases they would ask you to teach an audition class. In this training I make sure that you have everything you need to stand out as a teacher based on the skill and effectiveness of your teaching.

At the moment there are other organizations that exist to offer accreditation to yoga teacher trainings such as the British Wheel of Yoga in the UK and the IAYT which is for Yoga Therapists rather than yoga teachers. Several yoga teachers are currently working together to create an alternative to the Yoga Alliance that could potentially offer a new standard for accreditation. Until then I have chosen not to be on the Yoga Alliance registry, while exceeding their recommended guidelines and focusing on giving the highest quality Teacher Training possible.

I designed the Quietmind Yoga Teacher Training from the beginning to be online because it is the best environment for you to learn, review and process the training information. No need to travel, no need to miss any class. I give you multiple formats to learn using not just live lectures but also visual, auditory and kinesthetic ways to apply what you learn.

I encourage you to do your own research and learn about the Yoga Alliance from other sources such as this article:
