Why should you consider enrolling in the 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training at Waynesville Yoga? Oh, let me count the ways:
1. Personal Growth
YTT will bring your unresolved “stuff” to the surface for examination and healing. It will push you to grow & evolve in ways that will surprise you. Sometimes these surprises will delight you; other times, they will frustrate or scare you. But cultivating the resources and courage to face your sh*t can be incredibly liberating. Our 200 hour YTT invites unique, empowering personal growth.
2. Overcoming Challenges
Is there anything more satisfying that overcoming a personal challenge, struggle, or roadblock? YTT helps you employ the principles of Yoga off the mat, in the rest of your life. It helps foster both strength and flexibility; helps you recognize your safe edge; and teaches you to how to stay steady in moments of intensity & heat. All of these tools offer enhanced personal freedom, joy, contentment, and grace.
3. Self Care & Retreat
But the program’s not just challenging! It’s also richly rewarding, nourishing, and calming. You’ll receive nervous system-soothing and powerfully de-stressing self care every weekend of the course, in the forms of yoga, meditation, and other somatic experiences. So many graduates share that it felt like a self care retreat to come to the center and be in our building & space each weekend.
4. Support & Community
Whether your an introvert or extrovert, the community and encouragement offered by your fellow YTT students is an invaluable source of support. You’ll build bonds with these folks that will honestly last a lifetime, whether you’re looking for that type of connection or not. 🙂 The unique combination of a deep inner journey, but at the same time and in the same format as your fellow travelers, offers camaraderie of spirit & amplification of the course material.
Many of us are searching for direction and clarity, post covid. We want to organize around something to move us forward, into the future, but are still navigating the complexities of the changed landscape around us (and possibly inside as well!). YTT offers a 10 month transformative journey, in which the gooey disintegration of the chrysalis transmutes, on a cellular level, into the graceful splendor of an entirely new being.
6. Understanding Yoga Better
No matter how deep or organic your personal practice might be, Yoga Teacher Training will greatly expand and nourish your relationship with the art of Yoga itself. You’ll get a taste of a variety of yoga styles, including Buti, Kundalini, Yin, Hot Stone Restorative – and much more. You’ll learn the inside out of human anatomy, as it relates to Yoga, and take a deep dive into each of the common poses.

7. Cultivating Harmony
Each of the weekends that you spend at YTT helps make the world a better place. You’re not only gifting yourself the medicine of the ancient science of Yoga; you’ll also scatter the tools & resources you gain in the program, like seeds, in your community. And of course intentionally plant some of these seeds as well. The gift of knowledge you receive through the program will ripple out in your life, cultivating harmony & peace in the world.
