Yoga Teacher Trainings

The YogaShak School of Yoga offers yoga teacher training programs and workshops that are led by co-owners of YogaShak; Patti Ragone (E-RYT® 500, YACEP®) and Kelly Armstrong (E-RYT® 500, YACEP®, C-IAYT Certified Yoga Therapist).

Whether you are interested in deepening your practice, you feel the call to teach or you are looking for Yoga Alliance approved continuing education credits, the YogaShak School of Yoga is committed to the personal success of each participant.

We encourage our teacher training students to engage in “svadhyaya”— the Sanskrit term for self-inquiry. You will acquire the confidence to communicate the practice of yoga to others with the highest level of skill while honoring your unique voice and style.

The YogaShak programs will broaden your perspective of yoga –culminating in an experience that is transformational on every level: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual.
