KARMA School of Yoga and Wellness provides a 200 and 300hr Yoga Teacher Training in accordance with the standards set forth by Yoga Alliance. 

The 200hr Foundational Yoga Teacher Training will prepare the student to teach yoga to the general population.  The program has a strong emphasis on general anatomy and physiology in relation to functional movement and asana.  Students will be trained on proper and safe alignment principals of foundational poses as well as how to safely progress students based on functional movement patterns.  The program will also include in-depth study of the philosophy and lifestyle of yoga as well as the rich history and many paths of yoga teaching.

The 300hr Yoga Teacher Training will provide a deeper look into anatomy and the common injuries and health issues many students have in an effort to develop a better understanding of the human body as it relates to the asanas of yoga.  The 300 hr program includes focus areas of teaching persons who are elderly, have challenges due to being overweight and those who have a history of back injury / surgery and joint replacements.  This is to help the yoga teacher understand how these conditions affect the language of teaching and modifications needed to assist students in their practice. The 300hr program will also broaden the yoga teacher's understanding of Ayurveda, the philosophy of yoga, pranayama teaching methods and further develop pose modifications. 

Our Lead Trainer, Elizabeth McNeil, E-RYT500, MS, PTA has been practicing Yoga for over 15 years, and completed her teacher training primarily through Yoga East, Louisville, KY, Laura Spaulding, Director.  Elizabeth had the privilege of completing her training for her 500 RYT by studying with Francois Raoult, David Swenson, Richard Freeman, and Tias Little among many other respected teachers.  Elizabeth teaches her classes with emphasis on breath, alignment and awareness.  Current classes include Basic Yoga, Chair Yoga, and Intermediate/ Advanced Yoga at KARMA Yoga in Elizabethtown, KY.

KARMA School of Yoga and Wellness strives to produce Yoga Teachers who can share their knowledge of Yoga with intelligence, creativity and joy.  Both the 200hr and 300hr training are provided bi-monthly (Saturday/Sunday - all day) for approximately 5-6 months.  Other requirements include, practice teaching, volunteering (Seva), and assisting.  Certification of completion of the training is provided after successful completion of an Asana exam, Teaching Methodology exam, and a written exam on Theory, Anatomy and Philosophy.  Please contact Elizabeth with any inquiries about these trainings.

This school has a well-rounded training program. We learned the key components of being a good yoga instructor including the history of yoga, the qualities of a good teacher, and the many facets of yoga. There is a strong emphasis on human anatomy and practicing in a way that is safe for our bodies. While human anatomy can be intimidating to many, Elizabeth is knowledgeable in the subject and fosters a supportive learning environment to ensure everybody understands what they need to.
