200 Hour Classic Yoga Teacher Certification
Fall Session: April 21 - May 18, 2013
Location: Solace Spa at Boyne Mountain
Time: 7am-5pm for 28 days
The premiere yoga studio of northern Michigan, Union Yoga, has chosen to host two Yoga Teacher training sessions this year at Solace Spa. Sean Handler, Michigan Director of Spas for Boyne Resorts explains, "Sandra Carden and Union Yoga set the bar for yoga instruction. Combine the training with the 5000 acre sanctuary of Solace Spa, and you end up with the perfect setting for learning and yoga study."
Self-awareness is self-transcendence. We can only transcend that which we understand, and question. Clarity through yoga is self-inquiry and understanding of yourself – how you have been conditioned to think, act, move, and grow, as a manifested spiritual entity. Through UNION/YOGA Teacher Certification, you will learn about your edges and shadows, strengths and stops. This evolving inquiry becomes your greatest advantage in being an exceptional teacher of yoga. It begins at home. When you are present to see yourself, in all facets of your unique expression, you are better equipped to see and guide others. This course will benefit anyone desiring personal growth and in-depth experiential revelation of yoga, whether seeking a teaching career, or not.
UNION/YOGA Teacher Certification is approved by Yoga Alliance, and licensed by the State of Michigan. Yoga Alliance is the governing board that sets the standards of professionalism required for North American Yoga Teacher Certification.
- TUITION: $3239 (Early Bird Registration Rate = $2943 if you register by August 1st)

- Daily lunch (28 days)
