Moonbeam Yoga Teacher Training SPRING 2017

Applications Due by 2/25/17 in order to process application procedures, building book binders, and allowing for initial assignments and reading material!
Moonbeam Yoga is Half Moon Yoga Healing’s 200 hour teacher training program  designed to open the heart to your soul’s brilliant light! Each and every one of us has an inner calling to share our light and gifts with others through acts of service.  At Moonbeam Yoga, we understand the passion and purpose involved in serving others through the art and science of yoga, and we are committed in helping to develop and foster future yoga teachers in their dreams of nurturing the body, mind, and spirit of the world.  Students who want to deepen their practice and mindfully engage in personal growth without the intention of teaching are also welcome to attend the training.
Led by Experienced Registered Yoga Teachers, Robbie Michelle Short and Stephanie Jones are excited to offer a balanced training program grounded in the highest standards for promoting safe and competent teaching.  This program addresses the five educational categories set by Yoga Alliance, which includes: 1. Techniques, Training, and Practice, 2. Teaching Methodology, 3. Anatomy and Physiology, 4. Yoga Philosophy, Lifestyle and Ethics for Yoga Teachers, 5. Practicum.  When you graduate, you will have the confidence, knowledge, and inspiration to share yoga with students of all levels.

Throughout your training, you will study and practice with teachers who excel in their area of expertise and who are committed to their yoga lineage.  Each style of yoga offers its own ray of light, and our program is illuminated by the opportunity to study various styles that have shaped the vast world of yoga.  While learning to safely instruct asanas (postures), pranayama (breath work), mantras (tools for devotion and healing w/sacred sound), and meditation (the true pinnacle of yoga), we also remain rooted in the exploration and application of the philosophical and spiritual elements of yoga. We emphasize the importance of self-inquiry and self-awareness, which guide each of us on our journey as yoga teachers.  As a well-rounded program, you will gain the confidence to find your authentic,unique voice in sharing your yoga .

Our program is distinct from other offerings in the Middle Tennessee area because we fully immerse ourselves into the teachings while experiencing the transformation of stepping out of our daily habits and retreating into the beauty of nature. The training will be held away from the hustle and bustle of life in order to gift you with an ashram type of experience just outside of Franklin, TN. The accommodations are amazing, clean and spacious, and located in an inspiring setting for yogis! Connecting to nature is a great way to ground us in our bodies and into the NOW. It also helps to clear and calm our minds so we are more available for the focus and introspection that yoga calls us to do. We are the only training program in this area that offers this type of opportunity which is what makes us so unique. These type of getaways also encourage the building of relationships amongst those who are going through the program to offer support as well as practice for building relations with other teachers & students alike.

The next Moonbeam Yoga Teacher Training begins in Spring 2017. The training will include 2 full weeks and 4-5 full weekends of direct contact training, as well as additional reading and independent study.  Robbie and Stephanie will co-teach and offer a casual Q&A meeting in the new year and are always happy to answer any of your inquiries before that date is announced! Moonbeam Yoga Teacher Training is an official school meeting the standards of the Yoga Alliance.   To learn more about the benefits of attending a Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga School, please visit:
