~POWER VINYASA YOGA IMMERSION AND TRAINING~
This is an Immersion style program.
Created for those interested in becoming a certified yoga teacher
or students hoping to deepen their practice.
Completing my RYT 200 training with Lyn Kehoe was the best decision I have ever made. She challenged me and pushed me not just through the physical practice but through the yogic philosophy that transformed my life. She encouraged me to become the best possible version of myself and provided me with the tools I needed to do so. I will forever be grateful I found such an incredible mentor to shape me into the instructor I am today. I could go on and on about the profound impact her training has had on me in every aspect of my life but I will just end it with this:
words cannot describe how remarkable Lyn Kehoe’s yoga teacher training is.

Are you interested in deepening your yoga practice, on the mat and off? This level is perfect for those who might not be interested in teaching but would like to delve deeper into their yoga practice. You will not be eligible for certification – though you can upgrade during the program if you change your mind! Full participation is encouraged, but you are free to choose which sessions you attend or not. You will not be required to learn the power yoga sequence, practice teach or complete any written or practical tests. But I do encourage you to attend all the weekends/weekdays and complete all the reading assignments to get the most out of the immersion as well as being able to contribute to the discussion. The online anatomy course and audio downloads are not included.
Immersion level can be upgraded to Certification Level.
Please speak to Lyn for the deadline to make this change.

About The Program:
With 20 years teaching experience and 10 years training teachers, Lyn is recognized as a leader in the area for her teacher training program. If you practice at local yoga studios, there is a good chance you have been instructed by one of Lyn’s students. With a reputation for helping teachers to find their authentic voice, you will leave training with the tools and ability to guide a class with skill, leadership and knowledge. This program prepares you to lead an all levels yoga class – beginners to experienced students.
You will learn to weave a perfect blend of technical knowledge and philosophy that speaks directly to the students, while still keeping the pace of the class. Often there is a disconnect with our practice on the mat and how it translates to helping us off the mat – through the study of the Yamas and Niyamas you will not only awaken the connection for yourself but guide your students towards connection as well. Emphasis will be on how to apply yoga philosophy and principles not only in teaching, but also in everyday living.
Learn to take control and command a class as you encourage students to be guided by their intuition – Buddhi – and work intelligently on their mats.
A minimum of 12 months yoga practice experience is recommended. However, trainees are not required to perform advanced asanas. This program is for anyone interested in deepening their understanding of yoga.
Be prepared to commit and work hard during training sessions. But also plan to spend time outside of the classroom practicing, reviewing training lessons and completing non-contact hour assignments.
Teaching yoga is not something you “do”, but something you “live”. This program allows you to completely immerse yourself in the process. Finish the program with the ability to teach yoga, not just instruct.
