300-H YOGA TEACHER TRAINING FOUNDATIONS WEEKEND with Ellie Rose & Chiara Guerrieri
Mar 18, 2022| $295 – $350
A fundamental understanding of anatomy and kinesiology allows us to explore the wonders and mysteries of the body with precision and discernment. It helps us to not only refine and adapt postures to enhance the overall health of our students but also build trust and confidence in the student/teacher relationship. The goal is learning to remain within our scope of practice, knowing where the role of the yoga teacher ends and when we should recommend a student to a healthcare provider.
Through intelligent understanding of form, sound biomechanics, and a workable knowledge of anatomy, we will explore making the asana practice accessible to all who wish to benefit from the gifts of yoga and take your teaching to a whole new level.

About the instructors: Ellie Rose, Chiara Guerrieri
A lifelong student of life of what it is to be a human, I completed my BFA in Musical Theater and Dance and my MFA in Acting pursuing a career as a professional actor for many years in Chicago and Seattle. I have had the honor of teaching at Cornish College of the Arts since 1997 where I am currently a Professor of Theater teaching Physical Technique, Yoga and a course I created called Living Mindfully.
In 2002 I completed my first of 3 teacher trainings and began teaching right away. In 2007 I completed my 300-hour advanced teacher training in the therapeutic Vini Yoga method so that I can teach people of all capacities.
In 2015 I became certified as an Ayurvedic Wellness Counselor to deepen my understanding of how this sister science of yoga promotes a healthy lifestyle and vibrant health.
In 2018 I launched the Living Yoga course at Seattle Yoga Arts for anyone who wants to dive more deeply into the practices of yoga, Ayurveda and mindfulness to more fully awaken, uplevel their health and grow in a like-minded and nurturing community of seekers.
I began studying Yoga in 1983 as a way to rehabilitate and strengthen myself after a car accident. What I learned then was how to breathe, how to use the breath to connect with my body, how to track physical sensations from moment to moment, and how to find an internal wisdom to guide my movement and choices toward well-being.
When I teach, I aim to bring students’ attention to a place of presence and wonder. This is particularly helpful when students are working with injury or physical pain. My classes and workshops focus on wellness through discovery, guided by the extensive study I’ve done into the body’s inner workings. I focus on keeping instruction lively, accessible, encouraging and compassionate, with a dedication to work deeply and specifically, as well as with humor and irreverence. I am an LMP, and E-RYT200, RYT500, and YACEP certified.
Not only have I studied a wide-range of bodymind disciplines–Hypnosis, Neuro Linguistic Programing, Massage, Meditation, NonViolent Communication–but I’ve worked to master the material deeply enough to teach in each of these areas. Teaching itself is one of my greatest joys. A long-time mover and shaker, my passion for movement forms has enriched my entire life with dance, yoga and daily walks in nature.
