WHAT TO EXPECT
The Charlotte Yoga 200-Hour Teacher Training is a great way to invest in yourself and your personal development and growth.

Whether you are a yoga teacher, an aspiring teacher or a student, this experience will be transformative.
Personal growth requires work, but Suzanne and Terrie believe in experiential learning and are committed to making your teacher training experience empowering and fun. Our training program will not overburden you with heavy reading or busy work.
What you can expect is to practice plenty of asana, pranayama and meditation so you feel more confident in your own practice and your ability to teach others.

The Holistic Teaching Method™ will be introduced the first weekend and will provide you the perfect framework to kick off your teacher training experience.

WHO SHOULD APPLY
Anyone who is looking to deepen their practice and knowledge of yoga. The biggest barrier that many yogis face is the “teaching” part of teacher training. This training is for those of you who want to teach AND those of you who just have a desire to deepen your practice. Yoga teacher training is about personal awareness and development and expanding your knowledge of yoga, so your practice is enhanced and so is your life. Please note: All skill levels are invited to enroll in yoga teacher training, so don’t stress if you don’t have yoga experience.
Terrie and Suzanne are committed to helping you succeed based on what is important to you and will support your growth every step of your yoga teacher training journey.

Training with Terrie and Suzanne was an awe-inspiring, eye-opening, life-affirming program and if I had the option I would do it again without hesitation.
Teacher Training has given me a boost of motivation and aspiration and I am so excited to see where the path takes me. My asana practice has grown considerably and I have carried many of the principles learned through exploration of ancient yoga teachings into my daily life and share them with my friends and family.
With the tools I’ve learned over the course of this teacher training I hope to develop an even greater appreciation of myself and the world around me and help others find the same gratitude and peace. The process is never over, it is a mountain without a top, and I intend to continue to peel the onion, push the envelope, and break through the boulders on this journey of life.
