Why choose Samadhi Yoga Studio’s Teacher Training Program?
What sets us apart?
We offer a blend of depth and integration, training over the course of 10 months. Students spend one weekend a month together, with spaces between sessions to integrate and process.
The training is co-lead by seasoned instructors Sushma Reddy, RYT-500 and Amy Thompson, RYT-500, both of whom completed their 200 hr YTT together at Samadhi in 2010. They have been instructors at Samadhi since that time, and have advanced certifications and additional YTTs in their resumes.
We have diverse teachers, including lead instructor Sushma Reddy, who brings the authentic essence of yoga from her upbringing in India (the birthplace of yoga), and Sarita Nada, who is also Indian and presents our Pranayama module. Kelly Bay, E-RYT-500, been teaching anatomy and physiology in local studios since 2017 and guest teacher in yoga teacher trainings since 2014. Our primary guiding principles are to offer a training that has depth, with an emphasis on instructing, supporting and nurturing the process of yoga students becoming certified yoga teachers. The training schedule is designed in such a way that you will have space for growth and time for integration of the subjects covered. These are weekends that you will look forward to as in-town retreats for refueling, community and inspiration.
