| $3000

Event Navigation


Dora Gyarmati, EYRT is the owner of Spira Power Yoga Studio and a creator of Spira Philosophy and Teaching Methodology (A 200hrs 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, literally and scientific traditions.

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. 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 2016.(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. Email info@spirapoweryoga if you have any additional questions.)

Spira offers a very deep curriculum that goes beyond what is required by Yoga Alliance. You will read 7 books over the 8 months and you will listen to lectures by the following amazing guest teacher:

  • Jenniferlyn Chiemingo – ERYT – Chakras and Mandala
  • Kim Popovic, Physical Therapist – Anatomy lectures
  • Auryel Van Gemert – visiting lecturer, Meditation and Breath; Pranayama
  • Carina Terra 500 ERYT – visiting lecturer, Ayurveda and Energy Sequencing
  • Shannon K. R. Schneider PhD – Immunology
  • Brenda Schornak -RYT – Assisting teacher throughout the 200 hour lecture

Dora will be present throughout all the hours. She is the lead teacher, lecturer and the creator of the curriculum. She will help you through the practice teaching exercises. She believes in upholding the highest standards for quality of education but she also wishes to provide a loving family environment. She will be there for you if you need help throughout the year. She also has her two dogs with her at all times, Panni (a standard poodle) and Albert (a maltipu) is ever present in the studio during the trainings. Students often find their presence calming and centering.

What will you learn during Spira’s teacher training?

We will go into the history of yoga, we’ll make sure you are very well rounded with all classical texts. We will also make sure you walk away with a deep understanding of human physiology and anatomy.

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 modern cognitive therapy. So we’ll emphasize cognitive therapy and modern psychiatry methods. We’ll artfully overlay the old yoga teachings and embed them into modern science. You will learn how to teach yoga without preaching a particular spirituality.

Completing Teacher Training at Spira will allow you to inspire people from gyms to yoga festivals. The training is also open to folks who simply wish to deepen their knowledge in the field of yoga and gain a better understanding of their own practice.
