Hatha Yoga Teacher Training
Hot Yoga Renton is proud to offer a 200 Hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training Program starting in January of 2022 led by Jessica Winters & Nicole Hamilton.
Participants can expect to complete this training with understanding, clarity and a unique voice with which to confidently teach the 26/2 Hatha sequence commonly practiced in hot yoga studios in the tradition of the Ghosh lineage of yoga, as well as, the knowledge and confidence to teach their own sequenced class. Trainees will also be provided a foundational understanding and introduction into yoga philosophy and history alongside a study of anatomy as it relates to yoga asana.
Over the course of 3 months, we will meet 8 times in-person, and 8 online sessions to complete our 200 hours of training. Our time will begin with an all-inclusive 4-day, 3-night retreat at Aldermarsh on Whidbey Island and then will meet for 7 intensive weekends hosted at Hot Yoga Renton with weekly zoom check-ins.
