A message from Sheila's friend and teacher, Beryl Bender Birch.
She is the director of our last 6 years of teacher trainings, and this year will be hosting the 300 hour curriculum virtually, making it accessible for people to join in from all across the country, or even, around the world. This training is for yoga teachers who currently hold a 200 hour certification.
Heartsong Yoga is a host studio for the training, with Sheila mentoring a group of students from her community and some who have been "assigned" to her. She is on faculty and will be teaching "weekend number 2" and providing some on line content, all virtually, along with a team of fabulous teachers who are on staff for this training.
Heartsong has postponed offering the 200 hour training this fall, because of COVID-19 and restrictions. Look for opportunities to study with Team Heartsong as we get settled into our new "new normal".
Dear fellow yoga teacher,
Welcome to the best day of your life!
We are excited you are here, now, and that you have checked in to see what our ALL NEW, virtual 300-hour advanced yoga and meditation teacher training is all about. As graduates of The Hard & The Soft 300 hour Yoga & Meditation Teacher Training programs, we are a global family of 500-hour (and beyond) certified yoga teachers and practitioners working for the healing of our world. We are all yoga teachers but we are also full-time mothers, fathers, doctors, organic farmers, laborers, timber frame builders, first responders, health care workers, artists, and educators, and are taking our yoga out into the world in a million different ways. We teach in prisons and corporations, to veterans, children, and seniors, to at-risk youth, and to people recovering from cancer. We believe that the practice of yoga is a powerful evolutionary tool that can help people to become more conscious, more compassionate, and more concerned with the welfare of all. Whatever we do, we embrace the 8 limbs of yoga and speak up, calling out injustice. We are proactive leaders in our communities – working for clean food and drinkable water, for the rights of animals, women, minorities, and for the sustainability of Mother Earth and our environment. Yoga makes a difference in people’s lives, and we get to see that every day. We hope you will join us.
