Svadhyaya is the practice of self study. At some point in the yoga practice, most yogis feel a greater need for depth in the practice. Curiosity begins to blossom outside of the 60-minute drop-in class, and self-initiated study begins. This is when I believe the vast greatness of the practice begins to reveal itself: the moment your knowledge seeking is self-motivated, and feels essential. Your curiosity may lean towards perusing the bookshelves after class or signing up for yoga workshops, but if your thirst isn’t quite satisfied, it might be time to consider yoga teacher training. Here at Soul Strong Yoga, we are launching our first 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training this March! A 200 Hour certification certifies you to teach yoga, but it is so much more than that. During yoga teacher training, and the start of in-depth svadhyaya, you’ll dive deep into yogic concepts, experience them first hand, learn how to teach, and then…click. The pieces of your yogic education begin to culminate into deeper understanding and application. You begin to discover not only more about the yoga practice, but more about yourself. It’s a time of both turning inward- reflecting and growing, as well as reaching outward and sharing as you teach.

We would love to have you join us for our weekend spring session beginning March 23rd-May 19th. Can’t make it this spring? Not to worry! We have a summer intensive session (June 10-July 3rd), as well as a fall session beginning September 10th! Our training will be located at the Soul Strong Yoga main studio in Round Rock as well as our new Soul Strong Studio, a beautiful training space, with indoor and outdoor room for practice, meditation, and gathering. At Soul Strong Yoga, we equip teacher trainees to hold space for diverse yogis and teach through a lens of inclusivity. We will also help trainees dive deep into their own practices, graduating with confidence in a wide array of areas, from yoga philosophy to safe body alignment. We are here to support all trainees, provide a beautiful space in which to flourish, and build a loving group of friends in the greater Austin yoga community.

To learn more, come to our teacher training info session THIS Saturday, February 2nd at 11AM. Located at the Soul Strong Studio at 107 S Lewis St, Suites 110 and 120, Round Rock, TX 78664 in downtown Round Rock. Please park on E Main and follow the driveway down to Soul Strong Studio.
