“Maureen saw the potential in me and empowered me to open my eyes and see my own capabilities. She gave me just enough confidence so I could trust in my abilities to teach.” –Naima Audant, Mangala Yoga Instructor
Join us this May for a 5-week, Yoga Alliance Certified 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training (http://www.mangalayogastudios.com/200-hr-yoga-teacher-training/) and emerge a confident and capable yoga instructor.
Who is Mangala Yoga’s 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Designed For?
We designed our teacher training for the yoga enthusiast who is feeling the initial calling to teach. Our training is perfect if you:
- Want to make your passion for yoga your profession.
- Feel stuck in jobs that are unfulfilling.
- Are searching for more meaning in your profession.
- Are craving to get out from behind the computer screen.
- Want a really hands-on, intimate teacher training experience.
- Are ready to take your personal yoga practice to new heights.
- Feel called to share the gift of yoga with others.
You do not need any previous teaching experience to participate but we do recommend this training for those who have practiced yoga for at least a year.
We also encourage any of you who may not necessarily want to teach, but who want to intensely deepen your practice to join us. We will develop new levels of depth and understanding in our personal practices and the one-week yoga retreat (included in the tuition) elevates our personal practices to new heights.
Says former 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training student Naima Audant, “Whether you want to teach or not, the right outcome will come through this training. You will go deep within and deepen your personal practice which I think is the most important gift of the training.”
How is Mangala Yoga’s 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Different Than Others?
When asked why they chose our training over alternative options, most former students emphasize the non-competitive and warm environment. Other key differentiators include the organization and intelligence behind the curriculum and the uniquely practical emphasis on teaching:
“One of the best things about this training versus others is that we didn’t just talk about pranayama, we didn’t just talk about meditation, we came early in the morning and we did them. It was something you could really embody in those 5 weeks.” – Annmarie Torrez, Mangala Yoga Instructor
Maureen is the ideal instructor for your introduction to yoga teacher training. She has 6 years of success conducting teacher trainings, has graduated over 70 students, 60% of which have gone on to become full-time yoga instructors.
“Maureen’s history of practice is so intelligently put together. She has different schools of thought and tools that she has gained throughout her practice and years and she puts them all together in such a way that is practical and easy to apply. I had a lot of breakthroughs in Maureen’s training!”
Maureen was the co-owner of a successful yoga studio in Northern California before she moved to Maui to open Mangala Yoga. She shares her wealth of knowledge and experience with you so you can create your own path of success as a yoga instructor.
Jennifer Hunt, who took the teacher training in fall of 2014 says:
“The teacher training program was amazing! It was well organized and it was quite apparent that Maureen loves doing what she does. She loves to teach and share what she knows with her students…I am not a big school person so for me it was so nice to be in a class that flowed and was done with so much love.”
We only offer our 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training once per year because we commit to focusing very intimately on each and every one our students!
We aren’t interested in simply handing out certifications, we strive to produce intelligent, capable and confident TEACHERS!
But I am Terrified Of Speaking In Front of Groups!
If you want to teach yoga but feel a little intimidated about the idea of being in front of a group, this is the perfect opportunity to transcend your fears!
Sally Aldrin say she was incredibly nervous to take the training and terrified of speaking in front of groups:
“I can talk in front of my friends but when I am up in front of a group of people, it is really, really scary! For the longest time, even at work, I remember having sweaty palms and sometimes even blacking out in the middle of my presentations. But Maureen got me to the point where I could do it! It was scary the first 4 classes that I had to teach as part of the training, but after the first one each one got better and better. Now I can get up in front of 50-60 people and have no problem speaking. My fear of speaking in front of groups is completely gone.”
So please don’t be shy! We promise we will work with you on effective and confident communication; which will empower you as a yoga teacher and in all areas of your life.
Looking forward to deepening this awesome journey with you!
Aloha & Namaste,
The Mangala Yoga Team
