We are truly excited to offer our In-Person 200 hour Integrative Yoga Teacher Training Program kicking off on October 7, 2022, with 8 weekends to take you through the first week of May. This is a beautiful opportunity to make a commitment to enhance your own health and well being, enjoy the connections of your yoga community and our wonderful teachers, and dedicate time to your own self care.  This "Deep Dive" will offer you the tools and the methodology to share your love of yoga with others through your simple everyday interactions and as a certified yoga teacher out in the world.

Yoga Teacher Training is not just for those who want to teach yoga. 
It is a way to deepen your own understanding and your personal relationship to the practices, enrich your lifestyle, fine tune your asana (poses), develop your meditation practice, study and enjoy rich conversations around philosophy and lifestyle, be a dedicated student, and create more clarity around your dharma, awakening more fully to your true nature and purpose as a spiritual revolutionary in service to those you love and care for, your community, and the sustainability of the environment and Mother Earth. 

The world needs you now, more than ever, to live in harmony with everything and everyone around you, and to share your yoga love, as I like to say “in ways that are seen and unseen!” Each weekend is a mini retreat, a chance to step out of the busyness of life.  The time in between each monthly meeting will bring insight through reading, writing, reflecting and practicing. There is on line anatomy training, done at your own pace, monthly meetings with your study group, (you will create and present a final project together) and making time to attend weekly classes at Heartsong and observing one class each month.  You will also develop a Give Back Project and begin envisioning how you want to bring your yoga off the mat and into the world.

This is a collaboration between Sheila and her longtime teacher, mentor and friend Beryl Bender, director of the Hard and the Soft Yoga Teacher Training program, with a new emphasis on bringing in the "Heartsong Yoga Vibe" of a the gentle/all levels accessible teaching style, combined with the brilliant sequencing of breath connected to movement flow for the more dynamic practices.  This training offers The Hard and The Soft's beautiful curriculum that has been presented once a year since 2013, updated and revised with the Heart of Heartsong, Yoga's Spiritual Muscles. As always the emphasis is on service, and the deeper practices of yoga, philosophy, lifestyle and history for the chance to either bring more yoga into your life or to share your passion and teach others.

The 200-hour (8-weekend) course of yoga study is an opportunity to join a global community of bright, like-minded yoga practitioners and dive progressively into the transformational and powerfully therapeutic dimensions of the brilliant methodology called classical yoga. The training will be directed by Sheila Magalhaes, founder Heartsong Yoga (1993) and supported by Heartsong's Senior teachers will join us "live" to share their wisdom and specialties throughout the training.

****While we trust that we will be able to be together "Live In-Person" for every weekend, it is possible that there may some mandates or regulations (or even bad weather concerns) that require us to make changes to the program, for example, wearing masks indoors if mandated by the government and/or meeting virtually if required.  This is the reality of our world and we must all do our best to take care of one another and be open to changes that may come our way.  Thank you for understanding.
