200-hr Yoga Training
Join JJ Gormley and SCHYS Faculty as they embark on a journey to explore the heart of yoga! SCHYS's 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training Program is designed for students who want to take their practice further, learn how to be safe on the mat, take a deeper dive into yogic philosophy, and find your Spirit through these ancient practices.
Under close guidance from your Faculty-Mentor, you will learn how to:
Engage proper pose alignment using western and subtle anatomy techniques;
Plan a class to keep yourself and others safe;
Make your yoga accessible;
Incorporate breathing techniques into your practice; and
Make small but powerful lifestyle changes to bring your yoga off the mat.
Become part of a community, cultivate new friendships, enjoy an enhanced learning experience, deepen your knowledge of yoga, and receive guidance for a sustainable and transformational personal practice.
Faculty: JJ Gormley & Hannah Zerphey are Lead faculty. Other faculty include: Katharine-Scott Gilliam, Eric Hansen, Linda Marcus, Barb Pishock, Christy Rous, and Debbie Segebart

You will also be required to take online classes, complete assigned reading (.pdf), engage with your Faculty-Mentor, observe and/or assist Faculty in their classes, take part in practical application of acquired knowledge, and be involved in discussion of course material (both online and in class).
