200Hr teacher Training
Our 200 HR training is broken up into Levels 1 & 2. The internationally held programs are 21 days total with Levels 1 & 2 both being 10.5 days. The program in Fort Worth is 16 days long total with Level 1 & 2 both being 8 days. This is because our schedule is slightly different while somewhere new and beautiful so that we can have time to enjoy the surroundings. Although most trainees choose to do the entire 200 HR at once, we have it broken into 2 programs just in case your schedule demands that.
This program focuses on establishing your teaching foundation. We will first support you in understanding exactly what yoga is and how to most effectively teach it…this will be an exciting on-going discussion throughout the entire training. Something we always suggest is to get clear about what your idea of being a yoga teacher is and then to DROP IT! These strong held ideas are often false and self-limiting to new teachers. We will put a lot of hard work into getting a vinyasa class sequence down so that you can become relaxed with it. We have worked with many teachers and have lots of tricks at helping you remember so don’t worry! Our sequence is well thought out so that the postures support healthy movement and practice for your students. Through daily posture clinics you will have a strong working knowledge of the pose alignment, modifications & contraindications. We will teach you a new paradigm with posture alignment that questions the textbook teachings. We will teach you how to be 100% relevant with your cues. You will practice teach every day in order to develop your voice and confidence. By the end of this program you will be able to teach a full class. Yes there will be lots of room for growth, that’s where Level 2 comes in.
Now that you have a good understanding of what yoga is, what it means to be a yoga teacher, postural alignment and a sequence wired within you, it’s time to refine. We will utilize many exercises to help you get even more relaxed with the sequence so that you can develop your most powerful expression. Every single teacher will have his or her own unique expression and we see it as our job to help you find and embrace it. We will help you understand what it means to truly see your students so that your words are relevant. We don’t believe that reciting a script or bullet points for any given posture is the most effective way of teaching. We will teach you to speak in a way that your students want to listen. You will practice teach a lot in order to get real-time feedback on how your teaching is landing. Although the practice teaching might sound scary—it truly is the best and fastest way to learn. Our commitment is to send you off as a powerful teacher who can teach a yoga class that is way beyond a workout. We want you to teach in a way that helps people live happier, healthier, freer lives!

Koh samui, Thailand
Level 1 - Sept 22 - Oct 2 / Level 2 - Oct 2 - 13 2018
with Stacy & Dave Dockins
Location: Koh Samui, Thailand
The location of this training lies on the south coast of Koh Samui, a tropical island in the Gulf of Thailand that still has long stretches of pristine beaches and unspoiled land. Koh Samui is only about an hour away from Bangkok by air, an hour plus from Singapore, and three hours from Hong Kong. The island has the allure of a remote island paradise but with the accessibility of the region’s most popular destinations. Situated on Laem Sor beach, this setting is surrounded by towering coconut trees in a quiet, spacious area, with incredible sunrises and sunsets that play with the colors of the water, sand and tropical fauna. Only a few hundred meters away is the well-known Laem Sor Pagoda, which houses the remains of Leung Poo Daeng, a realized monk. The only other structures in the area are villas privately owned. As such, our beach is private and virtually undisturbed, creating a beautiful, peaceful setting for you to enjoy your Thailand yoga teacher training with Yoga Project™.
Your rooms are set back from the main retreat, perfect for quiet contemplation and relaxation. The eco-friendly buildings make use of cross ventilation, natural lighting, rainwater harvesting, and solar power. Rooms are designed for couples and singles, as well as loft-style accommodations that are ideal for two people sharing.

We will give you the tools to be a successful teacher, and in the process, gain a broad understanding of yoga. Many other trainings emphasize book learning, lecture, and provide few, if any, opportunities to master the art of teaching yoga. This experience will be different. Practice teaching is the central part of our training. Upon certification, you will be ready to teach.
The hallmark of this teacher training program:
- Easy learning. Material is pulled by students rather than pushed at them.
- “Doing” rather than reading; discussion rather than lecture.
- Small groups.
- Building on your strengths.
- We will cover yoga philosophy, anatomy, assisting, and all the requirements for your 200-hour certification and registration with Yoga Alliance.

Instructor: Stacy & Dave Dockins
The structure and function of the human body in yoga

We will teach you how to speak with relevance in a way that creates an immediate palpable experience in your students' bodies.
We will study the physiological responses to yoga and mindfulness. We will take a look at the function of the many body systems and how they are affected by yoga.

300HR: Cultivating Your Craft
COSTA RICA (@BLUE SPIRIT RETREAT)
Instructor: Stacy & Dave Dockins
The nature of every human on the planet is to evolve, shift, ebb & flow. Whether it's a yoga teacher delivering a class or a student on the mat, everyone has the inner desire for expansion.
What are you doing to keep your craft forward moving as a teacher? How does your teaching feel? Is it exciting, alive and fresh? Or do you find yourself feeling automatic and repetitive?
Our newest 500 HR program ,Cultivating Your Craft, was designed at the request of an overwhelming number of yoga teachers. Are you ready to step out of the "formula" you were taught in your 200 HR in order to discover the potency of your own inner teacher? Do you feel like you are going to break the "yoga rules" if you do something different? (there is no yoga police by the way:)) If so, this training is for you.
This program involves 7 days of self-study and inquiry to help you excavate your own unique purpose and path as a teacher. We will help you get very clear on what resonates with you most within yoga and how to evolve this into your own teaching style.
We will use proven practices of mindfulness and meditation throughout this process, helping you to get even more clear on how to most affectively share this with your students. We will guide you through an inquiry and journaling process that makes it easy for you to share your own personal experiences with yoga and mindfulness in articulate theming of your classes.
You will learn how to prepare for your classes while staying relevant and present at the same time.
Get ready for a week of diving in deep with asana, pranayama, meditation, inquiry and discussion.
