“We’re thrilled to be offering our first ever Teacher Training,” says Rebekah Jacobs, Sama Yoga’s owner and director. “We think it’s different from other programs. Sama’s Teacher Training is based on the roots of ancient, yogic, Indian tradition – my co-leader Angie Mandl was trained in India, the birthplace of yoga – and is accessible to everyone, all levels, all abilities.”
Sama Yoga’s new program is a certified Yoga Alliance® – 200 hour Registered Yoga Teacher Training, but is not only for those looking to become teachers, Jacobs points out.
“Our program is designed as an in-depth study program to develop self awareness, confidence and life skills as well as preparation to teach what you’ve learned,” says Jacobs. “Offering this kind of program is something we’ve heard from our community that people want, and we’re responding. It’s a big undertaking, and we’re thrilled to be able to offer it right here in New Canaan.”
Graduates of the program will receive a certificate of completion and will be able to register as a Registered Yoga Teacher 200 – with the Yoga Alliance®. The program begins September 15 and will take place two weekends a month, from 12:30 – 5:30 pm, through May 5, 2019. For more information, visit samayogacenter.com or call Sama Yoga at 203-594-7077.
