At first, the thought of making the leap from being a student to becoming a teacher seemed scary. The teacher training gave me all the tools I needed and more to become a powerful instructor. I recommend this teacher training to anyone who wants to deepen their knowledge of yoga and truly find their voice as a teacher.

The Power of Your Om Teacher Training prepares you to confidently teach a powerful class. I stepped into my own power as a teacher and yogi. I deepened my yoga practice, made lifelong friendships and joined a community to support my growth as a teacher and human being. This teacher training is 10x more powerful than a previous 200 Hour Training I did.

I was hesitant to do yoga teacher training. I made all the excuses … I’m too busy. It’s too expensive. Will I really use this? Well, I can tell you with certainty that this is the best money I’ve ever spent. Teacher training wasn’t about becoming a yoga teacher in the traditional sense. It gave me a place to dig into myself. To transform the thoughts that had always been repeating in my head through my whole adult life. It was like therapy all weekend with my best friends and some really great exercise to boot! And the best news, I have these tools forever, as well as some friends I made that I know will be in my life for a long time. My heart and mind will continue to grow and expand because of this. It’s like a rock that I unstuck and now it’s no longer blocking my way forward.

Amy

The teacher training program is nothing short of transformational. Not only did I walk away with a deeper knowledge of yoga and your practice but a deeper knowledge of myself. It’s one of the scariest and most exciting things I’ve ever done!

Thanks for the patience and the opportunity to do this program. It's been so much more than I ever could have imagined.

Who is Teaching and what style are we learning?

Adrienne Smith & Power of Your Om Teaching Team 

Adrienne Smith has been teaching yoga since 2008. She is a 500 Hour E-RYT and has led several yoga teacher training programs, life-changing workshops, co-facilitated programs with LiveLoveTeach and coached athletes toward reaching their endurance goals.  Her teaching has been most inspired by Deborah Williamson, Baron Baptiste and Philip Urso while also experiencing and understanding many other yoga systems/styles.

“The way to really learn something is to teach it!.”  So Adrienne’s programs are based on total immersion where you learn by doing.  From day one you will be teaching yoga and assisting classes.  If you are a current teacher, you will learn how to break out of the traditional “yoga teacher” mold and speak and live what is authentically our own voice with love instead of fear.

If you’ve never taught before, you will learn all this and the skills to become a highly skilled Vinyasa Yoga teacher.  If you have no interest in ever teaching yoga, you will still benefit from this process as it will allow you to step out of your comfort zone and into a place of freedom and self expression.  For purposes of your final exam, you will be given a sequence of poses to teach but you’ll be encouraged to teach with your own unique expression, variation & style. You will leave teaching like YOU and no one else.

When should I apply for training?

Apply for training as soon as you know you want to attend. You will receive $500 off the total program cost if you register  and pay in full by September 1st ($3,000 versus $3,400).  You may apply as early as you’d like and begin a payment plan on your balance once your application has been accepted. Programs are considered sold out at 16 participants, so early application is recommended to guarantee acceptance.

We work with very new yogis as well as very experienced yoga teachers. All are welcome. If you have a passion for yoga and a desire to change lives, you are ready to apply for yoga teacher training at Power of Your Om. Because attendance is restricted, all applications are read and evaluated prior to acceptance. There is a waiting list if the training for your desired dates are full.

What is the application process like?

Applying for teacher training is easy. You will fill out our online application, upload a photo & resume, and pay the $250 application fee (100% refundable if you are not accepted). You will hear back on the status of your application in 3-4 days.  The $250 is applied to your full tuition.

What if I want to take the training but don't want to be a teacher?

We have many students who come to teacher training because they want to learn more about their own yoga practice – how to enhance your own practice on and off your mat . However, most of these students surprise themselves and begin teaching professional classes before the training is even complete! Whether you want to teach or not, you are welcome to apply for training and come to learn with Adrienne.

What can I do to prepare for training?

Prepare for training by purchasing & reading the required books (see below under curriculum), attending classes at the studio, and learning what poses comprise Sun Salutations A & B in a power vinyasa class. Upon acceptance, you will be sent all of the information you need to get started. Most of the magic will start on day one – show up ready for anything!

What will be covered in this training?

Power of Your Om’s curriculum includes all required elements in a Yoga Alliance Registered Teacher Training program, but also includes an emphasis on teaching early & often, with additional bonus opportunities to teach and assist in live classes at the host studio. Students will teach a full hour class, assist more than 10 live classes & lead a one hour workshop before graduation, as well as teach in small groups & partners daily.

What materials should I purchase, and what will be provided?

You will be provided with a comprehensive teacher training manual on day one of training, as well as appropriate hand-outs as the training moves forward.  We suggest purchasing hard copies of these books rather than electronic or audible books.  We will ask you to bring them to class with you for reference during the training.

Required Reading:

Journey Into Power by Baron Baptiste  
How Yoga Works  by Michael Roach  
A book with a translation on the yoga sutras.  
Recommendations: The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali by Swami Vivekananda Inside the Yoga Sutras  by Jaganath Carrera – there are several so just pick one that you think seems to make the most sense to you.  We have all of them at the studio too if you want to take a peak at them first before purchasing.  The Yoga Sutras book can be extremely confusing or very reader-friendly depending on which one you purchase.    

Will I be certified after completing this training?

Yes.  Power of Your Om Yoga Studio is a Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Teacher Training School.  At the completion of training, we will assist you in registering with the Yoga Alliance (international teacher registry) for the designation of RYT (registered yoga teacher).  This is optional but recommended.

Does this program offer job placement and networking support?

Yes.  We are delighted to say that most of our teachers in training begin teaching well before training is complete.  Adrienne has connections with a lot of yoga teachers, studios and businesses around the country and will help connect you with others that will help move your teaching path forward. Many of our graduates are successful studio owners looking for teachers and interested in mentoring young teachers.  We will continue to share resources & connections whenever we can, especially if you are connected with Power of Your Om on Facebook so that we can see what you are up to and what is most relevant to your yoga business.

What is Power of Your Om's assisting and apprenticeship program for teacher training graduates?

We are here for the long haul and are committed to growing potential teachers into their highest possibility.  Trainees are paired with a PoYO teacher during your YTT experience and that relationship will continue after graduation.   Once you have completed a training with Power of Your Om or any other 200 Hour yoga teacher training, you will have the opportunity to continue with us as part of our assisting and apprenticeship team.  This program requires commitment, accountability and a willingness to grow meanwhile honing in your teaching skills, learning best practices and receiving coaching and feedback to take your teaching to an entirely new level.

Can I attend part of one training and complete my hours at another time?

Yes, you may attend a later program of Power of Your Om’s to allow for the required hours for your training if you cannot complete one in full.  You will not receive final certification until completion of all hours and requirements and payments.

What is your cancelation and refund policy?

If you are accepted to training, your $250 application fee is non-refundable.  If you are not accepted for any reason, this fee will be refunded.  If at any time you decide to end your commitment, you will be charged a pro-rated amount based on the completed hours.  Any tuition payments made towards training are non-refundable, but may be moved forward as a credit for future training dates within one year of your original program dates.  Hours will be pro-rated as appropriate.

Who can I talk to if I have more questions?

Please email adrienne@powerofyourom.com if you have additional questions.  Adrienne is here to support you in this exciting opportunity.
