training schedule and dates

Our Annual 200 hour training is a six month transformational experience, designed to expand your personal practice and prepare you to teach group or private classes with knowledge and confidence. We meet every other weekend and have designed our schedule to make it easy to fit into your everyday life. We utilize the East and West studio during the training, so expect to utilize the facilities at both locations during the training.It takes time to find your voice and expand your practice, don’t be fooled by “shorter” training’s. All 200 hour Yoga Alliance Approved training’s require 180 contact hours. We have chosen to not try to cram everything into super long weekends, but instead to set you up for success by giving you an opportunity to fully explore postures and concepts presented in the training and to put them into practice.

Meet the trainer (Gina Pasquariello-ERYT 500)

I love teaching and practicing yoga! I am a registered, 500-hr Experienced Yoga Teacher (E-RYT) with Yoga Alliance. My mom dragged me to my first yoga class 18 years ago. It’s funny how sometimes those things we are so against end up being the things that truly support us and fuel our growth and expansion. I have been teaching yoga for 14 years, my unique style is a blend of Ashtanga, Iyengar, and vinyasa flow.

Part of what keeps me inspired in my yoga practice and yoga teaching (I teach 20 classes a week) is that moment when the impossible becomes possible, finally hitting the pose or transition that seemed completely out of reach and absurd when I first laid eyes on it. That wide-eyed experience of the impossible becoming possible is what fuels my yoga practice. The idea that what I perceive to be true in one moment could be nothing more than a fiction is laid before me weekly in my yoga practice.
