Our next 200hr yogahour Teacher Training starts in Sept. The excitement is building as the first weekend of YHTT approaches. I'm feeling truly confident that this will be the best teacher training program we have ever offered thus far. We have some high caliber teachers  coming to our small town to bring yogahour curriculum and teaching technologies. 

If you've been wanting to deepen your practice, and refine your teaching, now is the time. 
This training is led by Patty Gorder (yogahour teacher trainer), Sam Rice (yogahour curriculum creator), Brigette Finley (yogahour Director), and yogahour founder Darren Rhodes (@darrenrhodesyoga). You don't want to miss this!

"My love for yoga and how it personally benefitted me and physical health inspired me to do YH training. I took away SO much from my training: mostly a better and deeper understanding of what the whole body is doing in the pose(s) and HOW each pose benefits the body to improve wellness. I finished training with a deeper belief in the benefits of yoga for every single individual and the true importance of EXPERTLY taught classes vs your everyday yoga class at some centers."
-Amanda Wheeler yogahour teacher

"I think the community is important. Doing it together whether it's peer teaching or listening to a lecture, or actually practicing, it doesn't matter. It's our connection that inspired me then and now."
-Lindsay Dusek yogahour teacher
