200hr Yoga Teacher Training in West Seattle at Spira Power Yoga
Sep 16, 2017| $3,000
Join Dora Gyarmati for this 200hr yoga teacher training in West Seattle at Spira Power Yoga. This is an amazing program whether you are looking to teach or simply deepen your yoga and enrich your life.
All of our teacher trainings are structured to be beneficial and enjoyable for those who wish not to teach. We believe yoga is a path of lifelong learning. Teacher training is a term that we use because we are Yoga Alliance and Washington State Certified Teaching Vocational School and that is the language that they determined for these classes. But that does not mean that these trainings are restricted for teachers only. We welcome everyone who is curious, who enjoys learning,

- Fridays, 6:00pm – 10:00pm
- Saturdays, 11:30am – 4:00pm
- Sundays, 11:30am – 3:30pm
Last four years this training has sold out two months before start day! Make sure to pre-register. This is a unique teaching curriculum that you will not find in other studios. Spira’s teacher training is both unique and popular. So far every year we sold out one month before the start of the training. Do not wait till last minute! If you register early, you can also take advantage of a very easy month to month payment plan! Dora Gyarmati, E-YRT is the owner of Spira Power Yoga Studio and a creator of Spira Philosophy and Teaching Methodology (A 200 hrs YA school). Her European heritage and education in both the sciences and in the humanities created a unique style which blends Eastern and Western theological, literary and scientific traditions. The training is registered with Yoga Alliance. Spira Power Yoga is also certified by Washington State as a licensed vocational school. Schedule made to fit into your busy life. Teacher Training is not only for those who wish to teach. Take this training to enrich your life and deepen your yoga knowledge. If you’ve been searching for a 200 hour program that will provide you with both a Western Scientific approach and Eastern Philosophy, look no more! This training will teach you the foundations and history of yoga, anatomy, and how to teach beginners to advanced. This is an extended course over 8 months meeting for 1, occasionally 2 weekends per month. This structure allows you to read more books, to learn more interesting data from all the traditions (modern science and traditional yoga) and to truly dwell in teaching of yoga and yoga lifestyle. It also provides a long enough time to practice teaching yoga so that you feel more ready to jump in and actually teach a class by the time of graduation. This course is also perfect for the practitioner who wishes to deepen their yoga practice, deepen their knowledge about history, philosophy, anatomy and self-awareness. Spira does have a lot of practice teaching during teacher training but practice teaching can teach you about self-awareness, so you will find it useful whether you are taking the course for self-enrichment or as teacher training. We also have a lot of lectures and book discussions. Spira’s Teacher Training structure is perfect for the working adult with a family since the meeting times allow you to work around your busy schedule. There is no need to put your life on hold. Meetings are Friday night, Saturday and Sunday once, occasionally twice a month for 8 months. The training also includes Dora’s 40 Days of Introspection in January 2018.(This means an additional Friday meeting for 7 Fridays for the duration of 40 days for more info on 40days click on 40 Days tab under Teacher Training on this website.

You will learn the history of yoga and be well rounded in classical yogic texts. You will dive into anatomy, nutrition, self-care including making time for your own practice. We will discuss students’ different learning styles, different teaching styles, hands on assisting, the business of yoga and more. You will study sequencing and safe and healthy choreography of asanas. You will learn the art of mediation, it’s historical roots and how it developed into a modern mindfulness practice. Your trainers will artfully overlay ancient yoga teachings and embed them into modern science.
We want to make sure that you will feel comfortable teaching at any level; from total beginners starting yoga later in life to advance yogis and flexible gymnasts in their twenties.
At Spira we teach from a deep understanding of anatomy. We keep our classes very much rooted in Western traditions utilizing mindfulness techniques. You will learn how to teach yoga without preaching a particular spirituality.
