We are excited to announce our 4th Yoga Teacher Training Program, beginning in September 2017. This is an experience designed to get you out of your head, and into your heart...we focus on development versus programming, individual expression versus uniform expectations. Our program is special, in that it asks the yogin to seek their own heart, and discover it anew. The program offers the most cutting edge biomechanical information, and class sequencing methods, while remaining heart-centered and organic in its approach. Our program is a Registered Yoga School (RYS) with Yoga Alliance, and will provide trainees with a 200hr RYT Certification.
Please email our program director, Nicole at Nicki@bluemoonwild.com if you would like curriculum info, or to set up a meeting to discuss your interest in the training.
Students who register by July 20th will save $200 off of their total tuition.
Our format is one weekend per month, with intermittent projects and some casual get-togethers to check-in. This format allows for more reflective study, processing time, and ease of access to those with busy schedules.
If you desire to deepen your understanding and experience of yoga, yoga lifestyle, and yoga community, this is the ideal way in which to scaffold that process. If your aim is to teach, that is wonderful, but it is certainly not the main reason that most yogis take up this life-changing journey. More than anything, this is about uncovering the beauty of who you are and how yoga can help you step more fully into living that. If you DO intend to teach (or ultimately decide to) our training will offer you a community, and practitioners, to support and prepare you to lead others with skill and heart.
Program tuition is $3000 if paid in full by the start of training, and $3500 if paid in payments over the course of the training. Included in your tuition are: required texts, unlimited studio practice, private studio access for practice, and a new Jade Yoga Mat. Space is limited to 10 students. The deposit to reserve your spot is $500. If you would like to attend but have any concerns about the financials laid out here please do let us know. We can help.
We are truly honored to be considered for your yoga journey into teaching, and excited to support and serve you in that transformation! <3
UPCOMING PROGRAM SCHEDULE:
*students are permitted to make-up a total of two days if missed*
What are trainees saying about their experiences in the BMWY YTT Program...
"Truly an eye-opening and soul-awakening experience. I couldn't have imagined a better teacher than Nicole to lead the group and myself...I joined a group of strangers to deepened my yoga practice, and ended up a better version of myself with a group of yogis I could call my friends!" ~Lilly C. (Winter '17 Program)
"I appreciated the variety of expertise contributed by the guest teachers chosen, culminating in a comprehensive learning experience. Nicole made herself very available as my mentor, and allowed me to progress at my own pace." ~Kristin P. (Winter '16 Program)
Am I ready to join a YTT Program?....
The simple answer is, "Yes." If you are seeking, then you are ready. Every yogins journey is very unique, and parameters cannot be applied to when one is "ready." The best indicator is a deep desire of the heart, and an immense pull to deepen your practice. There are no amount of practice hours, or physical prowess that are indicative of a fruitful and successful YTT experience....it truly is your hearts desire that is the best information for your path.
Who is BMWY's Program designed for?
Everyone. Joining a program with us will give you the richness of diversity that yoga best flourishes in. We strive to admit trainees who are of vastly different ages, cultures, and backgrounds. There truly is NO BETTER environment than diversity to root into the teachings of yoga, and to more clearly discover your own individual truth in all its beauty. In one training we have had a students who were 21yrs old and 74yrs young. A single mother of 4 in grad school, and a newly wed who recently graduated from undergrad. An athiest, a buddhist, a jew, and a christian. And the most beautiful shades of skin gracing the sacred circle we make. A middle aged man with an incredible story of recovery, and a young man still enrolled at UofM. Not to mention two red heads in the same training!
We want you to see yourself in each other, the self that exists beyond the differences. And we encourage you to see the magnificent gifts of our differences just as importantly. BMWY is very aware of the white-washing of yoga, and the elite culture it creates around socioeconomic statuses, and the intimidating body image messages that some yoga cultures propagate. We are aiming to be one of the programs that empowers the full spectrum of our existence to deliver their yoga to others, to uphold its ethics, and be the true face of our beautifully diverse life on this planet. You belong in yoga. There is a place for YOU, just as you are. Never to soon, never too late...
