Fall 2019
200 RYT Hot 26 Teacher Training

with Cassie Aitken & Nora Shabayek

We are so excited to offer a Yoga Alliance 200 hour yoga teacher certification course in our new 12 South location, with a designated room for trainings starting October 9 and concluding November 22nd.  Our time together will be an opportunity for real change. This 7 weeks is about teaching and transformation - to your own degree. Most importantly, this  is also a huge opportunity to learn about ourselves and above all, an opportunity for healing. We are hoping that your heart will crack wide open before we are done!  

All time will be based upon yoga as a lifestyle practice. And this is why we will include meditation, lots and lots of hot 26 yoga classes, asana and anatomy workshop, pranayama experiences,  the business of yoga and much more. We are further including a strong introduction to Ayurveda, the Science of Life and often referred to as Yoga’s Sister Science.

We will be working with 90 and 75 and 60 minute formats and the size of the group will be limited to allow for the utmost in personal care. You will receive a dialogue to study and of course there is no cost for yoga classes during the dates of the training.  

Our Hot 26 Training team is committed to the technique and philosophy the original hot yoga series and also to yoga as a lifestyle practice. We train confident and knowledgeable teachers by providing a comprehensive study of the postures, anatomy and dialogue. We believe this yoga is for everybody and our approach is to teach with profound and authentic compassion to create an inclusive and healing environment. 

Once training is complete, graduates will have the tools to teach a confident, compassionate, and dialogue based class and the plan is to actually have each completed a handful of these to their peers prior to the end of training.

Our Core Teachers will be Nora and Cassie.

Our Special Guest Training Leader, Cassie Aitken is veteran yoga teacher, yoga teacher trainer and multiple studio owner, who brought hot yoga to Nashville in 2001. She founded Hot Yoga Nashville, had a number of affiliate studios until she left to go deeper into what she calls Yoga Arts and related studies in Bali and India. This training, will be almost a 10  year anniversary to the last Nashville training Cassie held as owner of Hot Yoga Nashville. Cassie remarks often, that her 11 years at Hot Yoga Nashville were the best of her live and it is all of our’s hope to work with Cassie in offering our community both Hot 26 and Vinyasa trainings two times a year, as well as down the road tropical retreats- anyone want to go to Bali or Costa Rica in 2020 or 2021?!
