I just taught my first yoga for all class for the winter at Indian Waters RV Resort. Seven women 4 of which had zero experience with yoga and a couple with body issues. Thanks, Lisa and Ronny for the great teacher training. I felt comfortable adjusting to the challenges and everyone seemed to like the class. We shall see what the rest of the season brings.

Time for change? Are you called to serve? Are you on the yogic path but want more? Is a deeper more meaningful life on your agenda? Have you been searching for a purpose? This training might be for you.

The Firefly Yoga 200-Hour Teacher Training includes both a solid grounding in technical skills and the development of an empathic, intuitive approach to teaching. It prepares you with the foundation to teach any population to which you feel called from beginners to advanced practitioners, youth to the elderly. You will graduate with a solid foundation and the tools you need to support your ongoing personal evolution and excellence in teaching.

Firefly teacher trainings do not require the trainee to have any "level of accomplishment," we believe all practitioners have something to offer. We do prefer that you have a year of practice at whatever level you practice. We welcome all ages, genders and levels of yogi.

The Firefly teaching model incorporates many tools and techniques that guide students through their own journey as a student and a teacher, allowing each graduate to emerge with a “tool bag” of foundational skills and knowledge. Firefly graduates will be prepared to take their teaching career to a wide variety of populations and environments.

Any training can teach you to string together poses, the Firefly teaching model encourages and teaches you to teach from what you know best, your heart and your experiences. Become empowered to be the teacher only you can be and to attract YOUR students like no one else can.

Empower your students and provide tools for personal growth.

I decided to take a jump and enter into a 200- hour yoga teacher training. Was something I’ve wanted to do since I was 10, but never thought I’d be capable enough to do so. It’s been so amazing and I have learned so much. I only have one more month and than I graduate, which feels amazing to accomplish something! This past weekend I even taught my first class. Thank you to Lisa and Ronny!

After the Firefly 200-hour teacher training, you will be ready to lead grounded, safe and inspired Yoga classes. You will also learn how to offer modifications, posture options, clarification of contraindications, and how to sequence a complete series of asana with progressive levels of difficulty and variety.

Philosophy. As a 200-Hour Yoga teacher, you gain a deeper personal relationship to yoga philosophy, with an emphasis on integrating Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras.

Principles of anatomy and physiology. Focus on safety, joint movement, range of motion, and a functional understanding of skeletomuscular systems and structures.

Pranayama. Enable students to experience body-mind integration and purification through yogic breathing. Learn and practice creative ways of incorporating various pranayama techniques into your posture sequences.

Relaxation and meditation. Gain skills for centering yourself and your students. Create a safe space for enriching inward focus, guiding meditation, and cultivating deep relaxation.

Just finished the teacher training and I love everything about Firefly!
