RYS 200 HR200 RYT Teacher Training 2016/2017


Metrowest Yoga blends the ancient Eastern art of yoga with the modern Western approach to exercise science and healing. This training is a current day approach to this ancient healing practice. Metrowest Yoga creates an atmosphere of healing and personal transformation while training you to be an authentic, confident and capable teacher. As you learn the skill of teaching, you will also discover your tremendous strength, an inner calm and the brilliance of your spirit. You will learn how to teach from your heart and from your deepest personal experiences.

Whether to strengthen your personal practice or learn how to teach yoga, view this experience as training in how to live life more fully.

*** What a moving and powerfully positive day! Truly one of the most special experiences of my life. I expect that the power of this day and these eight months will only grow in our hearts and memories as the years go by. Let's keep this flame alive!
During today's bowing ceremony, I was just awestruck by the beauty of the moment and by this group of amazing people. With all the chaos swirling around us in the world today, it was so heartening and uplifting to witness such an expression of true love and goodness.
Shawn, Anne, Cindy, Ray, you're all angels (especially you up there in heaven, Ray ;-). What an extremely fortunate group of people we all are!

**** You four are very amazing teaches and are an inspiration to aspire to!
Thank you
Be blessed
