Yoga School

Barefoot Studio offers Yoga Alliance Certified 200- and 300-hour registered Yoga teacher (RYT) training programs as well as continuing education unit (CEU) eligible workshops throughout the year. Students seeking 200 RYT or 300 RYT certification may choose from immersion programs offered over a two-month period or a condensed immersion lasting one month. The RYT and CEU courses always include Yogic philosophy, anatomy, scientific support , practical application and physical practice. Learn more about individual RYT programs here and visit the events page for upcoming CEU-eligible workshops and classes.

200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training

The Barefoot Studio 200-hour teacher training meets and exceeds all requirements of a Yoga Alliance Certified program. Students perform in-depth practice and study of over 300 asana; teaching methods; anatomy and physiology; and Yoga philosophy, lifestyle and ethics. From Pranayama/breath to Vinyasa/flow, to Yin and restorative practice, students are expertly guided to new levels of understanding from which they may safely and confidently continue their Yogic journey while imparting knowledge to others.

Barefoot Studio Yoga School offers insight that cannot be found in even the most comprehensive study guides. Instructors with thousands of hours of education and experience deliver an enlightened perspective of practice, adjustments, and physiological response. Students are expertly guided through the process of letting go of fear, quieting the ego, and realizing their Dharma – what they are meant to bring to the mat and receptive yoginis. Those who seek to teach learn to draw those they are meant to reach, to recognize a student’s struggles or limitations, and encourage exploration of capabilities. Participants also receive direction on the often overlooked process of nurturing themselves to create a deep reservoir of health, patience, knowledge, and care from which to draw for their students.

Whether you seek to become a professional yogi, or just to gain a deeper understanding of the practice and philosophy, Barefoot Yoga training will lead you to recognize potential, explore abilities, find a yogic voice, and teach or practice with clarity and joy.

300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training

This 300 hour, Yoga Alliance-approved intensive is designed to provide the Sādhaka (seeker or aspirant) with an in-depth, practical, knowledge of the seven primary chakras of the body: Muladhara (Root), Svadhishtana (sacral), Manipura (solar plexus), Anahata (heart), Vishuddha (throat), Ajna (third eye), Sahasrara (crown). Students will learn to awaken the Kundalini (primal energy or Shakti) and guide it to or through each Chakra to provide physical, mental, and spiritual healing, strength, and balance. In-depth review of anatomy and physiology is complemented by study and practice of nourishment through Yin and Yang asana, Pranayama (breathing), meditation, and dietary and lifestyle practices. Students will be prepared to assess needs and instructed on sharing and applying practices within a practical teaching environment.

Course lecture and practicum follow the guidelines of Swami Saraswati of the Bihar School of Yoga (Munger, India) and the Kundalini Tantra method of awakening the chakras. Physical practice of traditional Hatha, Kundalini, and Yin (from the teachings of Paul Grilley, Bernie Clark and Susan Powers) asana will be explored from an intermediate to advanced level ­– beyond that presented in a 200 RYS program. Similarly, intensive exploration of breath control through ancient Pranayama and Kriya practices in conjunction with advancement of mantra, trataka, Nada, Japa, and Njana meditation methods are addressed. Throughout the program, students will learn and apply Shatkarmas (bodily purification) practice as well as dietary/culinary theory, preparation, and application. Upon completion of this intensive, students will be equipped to practically interweave knowledge and practice in these areas to cleanse, balance, and energize the body through the seven primary chakras.
The 300 RYT: Awakening and Balancing the Chakras curriculum is presented in seven Friday – Sunday classroom modules (one per month) January through July. Self-guided hours of application, asana practice, and homework assignments are also required to achieve course completion and assessment for certification.
