Now accepting enrollment for our 300-Hour YTT Program!
The dimitraYOGA 300 Hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training explores the depths of the 8-Limbed Practice of Yoga and developing the skills of a teacher as a leader in the community. It is designed to take your practice and teaching to new levels of effectiveness and power. The training is offered in modules. Each module is experiential, hands-on, in-depth, and emphasizes new techniques to add to your teaching repertoire. Modern science in biomechanics and therapeutics will be blended with the ancient wisdom and practices of yoga. Students will gain direct experience with the material and explore the deeper dimensions of what it means to be a teacher and to serve as leaders and teachers of teachers in the community.
Upon completion of the training, teachers will have the skills to teach group classes, privates, workshops, and trainings that are therapeutic, artfully sequenced, full of expertise on the body and healing, and that move people to find their optimal state of wellness in body, mind, and spirit.
Of course, you can always take just one or two modules that interest you without needing to complete the entire training. Continuing education credits will be offered for those not seeking full certification. Each module is pay per module and there is no time limit for completing the modules. Each module will also include out of training assignments that will be turned in for final certification.
The program is lead and developed by Dimitra Kotanides, a yoga student and teacher for over two decades, and co-taught & assisted by Kari Nietert, a decade long yoga teacher & massage therapist. Together they bring over 30 years of knowledge and experience. Some modules will also have a guest teacher who will share with us their expertise in that specific subject
The curriculum is presented in a module format: allowing participants to customize their program of study in areas they wish to cultivate further. There is no beginning or end date and the training is meant to be taken over time, so that teachers can incorporate information into their teaching. There is no time restriction to complete the program.
