~POWER VINYASA YOGA CERTIFICATION PROGRAM~
~THE YOGI IN TRAINING IMMERSION~
A Yoga Alliance Registered Program
Weekend and weekday training schedules are available!
This is an Immersion style program.
Created for those interested in becoming a certified yoga teacher
or students hoping to deepen their practice.
In today’s world, we have become accustomed to instant gratification. Lyn believes that just like our yoga practice, training to become a yoga teacher is not something that can or should be rushed. This program is designed with that in mind by allowing you to immerse yourself deeply in the practice. Not only learning to lead a sequence and understand yoga philosophy, but also discovering what connects you to the practice on your mat and off.
Deadline to register is January 30th. Full payment is due at that time.

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 is not included in the cost. An unlimited class pass for the duration is included. If you take advantage of the early bird special, it will be activated as noted.
Immersion level can be upgraded to Certification Level.
Please speak to Lyn for the deadline to make this change.
An unlimited class pass is included with your registration.
Class attendance between training weekends is required. Approximately three classes per week in order to meet the training requirements.
If you are traveling to attend the training sessions, class participation at a studio of your choice can be approved. Though it is highly recommended that you attend classes at LKPY as often as possible.

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.
“….I am grateful to Lyn for her outstanding YTT Program I had just completed. Not only did I obtain the technical knowledge needed to teach which included a greater understanding of the asanas and the principles of alignment, I was also able to find my voice and teach with great confidence. The degree of practice teaching time and constructive feedback from Lyn and her staff were a tremendous benefit in guiding me through this process. I finished this training program well prepared and incredibly inspired to teach effectively to a diverse body of students. What an awesome experience it has been. Thank you!” J.O.
“…Lyn is exceptional and devoted to her practice and philosophy.” L.G.
“I can’t tell you how proud I am to say that I trained under you..I have found that so many studios do whatever they can to bring in more revenue, and I so respect you sticking to your beliefs.” J.C.
“…I went into the city last week thinking I would take some fantastic yoga classes. Came home realizing that the best one is in my own backyard! Thanks for being such a great teacher!!” K.W.
