Integrative Yoga Therapy Holds Teacher Training

This January 2020 news brief was updated (paragraph before endnote) after we went to print in order to add the date of a January Information Session for both 200- and 300-hour teacher training options.

Integrative Yoga Therapy will hold a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training for those interested in learning to teach yoga. The training starts in February and runs for nine months, meeting one weekend a month. This program is approved by Yoga Alliance and meets their new 2021 standards. They also offer a 300-hour Yoga Teacher Training which can be started at any time and scheduled at a pace that fits each person’s lifestyle.

Many people are interested in becoming a yoga teacher. This program gives them a comprehensive training in teaching to students of all ages, shape, sizes and ability levels. In today’s world, this is an important factor. Yoga students have a broad range of needs, and yoga can meet them where they are when a teacher has the skills to do so. The 300-hour program helps yoga teachers on their path of continuing education to increase their knowledge in ways applicable to how they teach.

Linda Patterson, owner and founder of Integrative Yoga Therapy, carries Yoga Alliance’s highest level of experience and training recognition, E-RYT 500. Patterson is also a Certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT) through the International Association of Yoga Therapists.

An Info Session for both programs will be held at 7 p.m. on January 24, or interested parties may text 864-444-5523 for an appointment to learn more.
