Teacher Training

Registration now OPEN – 200 Hour Certification

The Arkansas Yoga Center has been training and certifying teachers in Northwest Arkansas since 1998.  Andrea has had over 35 years of yoga practice and together with all her fabulous teachers more than 100 years of  combined teaching experience.  Bryan Fowler is taking a sabbatical for the 2016 Teacher Training year except for one weekend.

Our program provides a strong foundation in the basic principles of Hatha yoga.  In addition to traditional yoga poses and VariYoga sequences, the immersion weekends include yoga therapy (treatments for ADD, depression, anxiety, loss, PTSD), information on alignment, anatomy and physiology as it applies to yoga, an introduction to yoga philosophy and history, meditation and pranayama (breathing techniques).

The confidence, technique, and knowledge you will gain from this all-inclusive training will deepen your understanding and appreciation for your own yoga practice and enable you to become an educated instructor.   Upon successful completion of the program, which includes practicum sessions and a written test, your certification qualifies you to register with the Yoga Alliance at the 200 hour level.

AYC has been a registered school with the Yoga Alliance since 2001.  Check out the photos from our previous Teacher Training Intensive Weekends.  This training provides up to 200 hours toward AYC teacher certification, Yoga Alliance registration, and CEUs for 200 & 500 RYT.  Visit our Gallery Page for great photos!

You are invited to enroll in our Teacher Training Program to deepen your knowledge of yoga even if you do not want to be an instructor.
