Fall 2020

Downtown Las Vegas, NV

The Downtown Yoga & Wellness Co-op Hatha Yoga Teacher Training is a combination of traditional eastern yoga practice and modern western yoga practice. Our training is well-rounded and appropriate for the dedicated yogi who would like to start teaching yoga as well as the student who would like to delve deeper into the wisdom of yoga and deepen their personal practice.

The Downtown Yoga & Wellness Co-op Yoga Teacher Training focuses on intelligent sequencing based in biomechanics and anatomy knowledge supported by hands-on assists and alignment. Straightaway, you will experience teaching poses and portions of a sequence so that during the entirety of the 200-hours, you have the opportunity to build your personal teacher voice and presence before you step out to teach on your own. 

 

We’re honored to offer this Yoga Alliance Registered Certification in order to provide an opportunity for you to hone in and listen to your body’s needs and explore intuitive listening to benefit both your practice and that of your future students.  

 

We’re excited to welcome guest teachers who bring a high-level of expertise in their niche to offer our students the ability to explore different avenues and styles in the yoga world.

Adriana Lee is all about self discovery and empowerment through yoga. She teaches her students how to breathe, how to feel, and how to get reacquainted with their bodies. As a teacher, she breaks down big concepts and complicated poses to make them more interesting and more accessible. She is a total anatomy geek and is constantly learning more and more about the body so that she can better serve her students. Students leave the class feeling refreshed, connected to their bodies, and empowered.

Adriana is truly passionate about yoga and radiates love to her students. She says, “I found yoga at an impressionable age & important time in my life. I was too young to understand the depth of what I was doing - thought it was just exercise. But it made an imprint on me. Later, I used yoga to get through a challenging relationship and even more challenging divorce. That’s when I decided to become a teacher. It was my safe haven. I learned to be strong, resilient, and more importantly I learned how to feel my emotions fully rather than numbing out. I wanted to share the gift of what I learned. It was way too good to keep all to myself. “ Her intention is to share what she has learned about the magic of movement & the bliss of being.
