Yoga Alliance Teacher Training
*YOGA TEACHER TRAINING STARTING SUMMER 2020*
Why choose the Yoga Studio of Corpus Christi for Teacher Training?
Training, Support, Opportunities! Once you complete a teacher training, you will need a venue to teach from. The teachers trained by YSOCC have opportunities to hone in on their teaching skills at a “real” yoga studio. The studio has been operating since 2005. It has been the premier teaching institution of South Texas. In this highly competitive field you will need support. We support our graduates, promote their growth, offering job placement with all the organizations who contact us, requesting teachers. We also offer the only comprehensive teacher training for Kid’s Yoga in South Texas with Maria Teresa Mears (Mi Yoga). Join Michelle and her team to help you live your dream. You will be in demand in any part of the country that you live. Michelle will be there to support you long after your initial training is complete. Contact us. We will happily supply you with names and numbers of past graduates. We highly recommend you speak to past graduates to see how their experience was. Teacher Trainings are an expensive investment. You should invest in those who invest in you!
Yoga Alliance Teacher Training will offer you a unique opportunity to merge with teacher trainees that have almost completed their training as our groups overlap!
It is an opportunity to be mentored by others who are walking the same path. It is an opportunity to create a community of support, friendship, networking and growth. Ask Questions before you invest! Contact Michelle Acebo at 361-779-0183 or
The purpose of this Teacher Training Course is to educate the Yoga Teacher in different areas that will awaken their inner knowledge and teach them be able to tap into their own power and self confidence so that they may be of the greatest service to the community which they serve.
In order for a teacher to be skilled they must have a foundation understanding of yoga philosophy, yoga history, understanding the science of asana practice (which includes but is not limited to asana alignment, biomechanics of the body, when and where modifications are needed, when to use verbal cues, when to use hands on adjustments, understanding the importance of breath, understanding the importance of sequencing and working with injuries), understanding the importance of having a personal practice, understanding the importance of being a good and respectful student yourself.
The aim is being authentic and always having the purest and highest intentions to embrace and empower all students. A great teacher meets the students where they are and encourages them from there. The teachers trained in this particular training will learn to guide the student to walk their edge while respecting their boundaries. The teacher will be authentic. They will say what they mean and mean what they say. The only way we can teach others to get into alignment is by personally experiencing alignment. Alignment may be in body form but it is also being aligned in the way we live. It is from this personal knowledge that the teacher teaches. Teacher training is a trans-formative experience where you develop a deeper understanding of your body, mind, and heart through yoga.
As the facilitator of the training I will be sharing my rich lineage from Jivamukti Yoga and various other syles from which I have studied. The Jivamukti Yoga lineage is a physical, ethical, and spiritual practice. As a Jivamukti Yoga teacher we operate through 5 tenents of yoga philosophy which include: Ahimsa (non harming), Bhakti (devotion), Nada (music and/or sound), dhyana (meditation), and shastra (study of ancient scripture). The teacher trainee will learn to teach from the heart and tradition. We always honor our teachers and those who came before them.
May your studies be filled with light and love.
