Yoga Teacher Training @
As the only Registered Yoga School (RYS) in the region, Organic Yoga Company is proud to offer our annual 200-hour Teacher-Training program for the 7th consecutive session (spring/summer-2017)! We anticipate another amazing group of people, who are ready to make their transformative journey from being a student of yoga to being a teacher of yoga!
As you look at TT 200 programs, you'll notice that they're not the same. So, know that you're welcome to as me any questions regard-ing my program, the theories & methodologies that guide our instruction, the books we use, the structure of the program & the weekends, as well as what you'll gain from this program.
What makes Organic Yoga Company's TT-200 program different? To mention as few, first, our students put in a substantial amount of time practice teaching--beginning with the first weekend! In other words, by the time they graduate OYC students are skilled comfortable teaching Level 1 yoga classes. Secondly, our students go deeply into Teaching Methodology (how to teach) learning & practicing five teaching strategies including monitoring, data-driven feedback and communication. These strategies make such a difference in becoming an effective and skilled teacher. And lastly, the students learn practical anatomy & how to use it to create cues that are clear & helpful to their yoga classes. This, too, helps the student_teachers to have confidence as they teach as well as creating a safe, sustainable practice for their students.
Our rigorous curriculum has been approved by Yoga Alliance, the governing body of yoga teachers and schools. Therefore, those who complete our program will be able to register as a yoga teacher (RTY 200) with YA. For those who are ready to become a skilled, experienced, & inspiring yoga teacher, as well as those who wish to enhance their personal practice, make a commitment to yourself and this program!
If you have questions or would like to speak with graduates of this program regarding their experience, please call 605-366-9405. Visit the Teacher Training tab for more information!

TT 200: BASIC TRAINING
Organic Yoga Company will be offering our 7th consecutive 200-hour-teacher training program in the late spring of 2017. Dates have been posted. Know that this session is already filling up, so, if you're really interested for this year's program email OYC and get on the list since class size is limited!
TT 300: FEEL BETTER, TEACH BETTER
Organic Yoga Company will be offering TT 300 (formerly called TT 500) within the year. Built around the theme "Feel Better, Teach Better" our program will include studies to help you as a practitioner of yoga feel better as you grow more skilled in order to teach better. The topics to flesh out the theme have been determined as well as the schedules for each of the 8 weekend have been created & the core faculty has been chosen. We'll be offering this advanced teacher-training program early 2018. This advanced yoga-teacher training is to be taken after completing a TT 200 program at a registered yoga school (RYS). OYC's program will consist of eight training weekends occurring approximately once a month.
Until then, happy practicing!
Nancy Hong E-RYT 500
Director of Training
We welcome all to drop-in for a class to experience what makes OYC unique. What you will discover is this: while OYC teachers always offer a good workout, the way we teach yoga gives much more.
All of our classes teach biomechanics (how the body functions) and basic anatomy along side the yoga practice. We have found that this helps our students feel & understand their body more which, in turn, enables them to progress in their practice! Additionally, OYC classes teach the eight limbs of traditional ashtanga yoga (not just the physical poses), which include the spiritual practices of concentration & meditation.
With a focus on the whole person, the skilled & knowledgeable teachers at OYC will help develop each practitioner of yoga in a way that will be deep, endlessly interesting, natural, sustainable, and unique to each individual!

OYC'S YOGA-TEACHER-TRAINING IS IN PROCESS; THE NEXT TRAINING WILL BEGIN
Yoga is a path to your Self, your deepest Self, and it feels like coming home! Teacher training (whether or not you intend to teach) is filled with experiences, learning, lectures and yoga classes that will lead you along that path to your deepest Self. If you're inspired by your yoga practice as it is now, imagine what it might do for you after taking this in-depth training. If you're considering taking this journey come and take a class at OYC or give us a call to ask any questions you might have.
And know this, OYC is committed to the practice of traditional yoga through weekly classes, workshops and teacher training (OYC has almost finished our fifth consecutive teacher training). We will be here to support you in your learning and growth as you move into this program and into your future.
PRIVATE YOGA SESSIONS
When someone books a private yoga session, I'm able to work with them in two different ways. The first is a pose-focused approach. This approach is for you if you're looking to understand poses and how to enter and exit poses with skill and proper technique. For example, I've worked with people on their downward-facing dog, seated twists, lotus pose, headstand and triangle as well as pranayama (breathing techniques).
The second approach I use in the functioning-focused approach. With this approach I work with people to increase their mobility, stability and strength while reducing their pain, strain & stress. I personalize each client's sessions to address their needs & goals. I've worked with clients dealing with illness, breathing hindrances, age-related issues, injuries from car accidents, headaches, chronic stress, back pain & other issues.
In other words, I've done hundreds of private sessions helping people like you execute their practice with more skill and/or function better in order to live better!
Some people use private sessions as their gateway to a traditional yoga class, while others use their private sessions to improve their day-to-day activities.
Either way, if you'd like to book a private session call: 605-366-9405
