Fall 200-hour Vinyasa teacher Training

The Yoga Dojo’s 200-hour Vinyasa Teacher Training is a 200-hour level program certified through Yoga Alliance. All students will be able to register with Yoga Alliance for the RYT-200 designation upon completion of the program. Students with existing RYT status with Yoga Alliance will be able to use the training for CEUs. Required areas of study include, but are not limited to: Teaching Methodology, Anatomy & Physiology, Yoga Philosophy, Techniques Training, and Practicum.

Although, this particular training reflects the practices, principles, and philosophy of Rocket Yoga, it does not certify you as a Rocket Yoga instructor. You will need to complete an additional 50-hour training through an It’s Yoga International certified program in order to be a Certified Rocket Instructor. We will have this training available in the summer of 2019.


The Yoga Dojo TT will begin on Friday, September 21, 2018 and run through Sunday, December 16, 2018 on a Friday to Sunday format. There will be three weekends throughout the training that we will not meet (10/12, 11/9, and 11/23 weekends).

*Sunday, October 7: Arm Balances and Inversions, Level 2, 12-2pm

In this workshop, we will dive deeper into the trickier elements of inverting: handstand pressing, floating in sun salutations, transitioning in and out of arm balances, and many more drills to take with you to your home practice. Prerequisites: a comfortable crow pose, some experience upside-down, and/or the Level 1 workshop on Saturday.  Cost is $35 by 9/15, $40 after.  Sign up HERE.

About the instructor: A self-described "Handstand-Up Comedian", Carson combines his love for being upside-down with his natural ability to make people laugh.

In every class, you can be sure to break a sweat, learn something new, and leave with a smile on your face.


A weekend with Henry Winslow, november 16-18

*Friday, November 16: Join Henry for a 90 minute Vinyasa Hatha class. Sign up on our regular class schedule.  Standard class rates apply.

*Saturday, November 17:  Take Control Through Lightness Workshop, 12-2pm

Would you rather use brute force to take what you want, or conserve your energy and let things float your way naturally? In this workshop, Henry will lead a deep dive into the bandhas, or energetic locks, and their role in creating stability, lightness, and effortless control in your yoga poses.

We’ll look specifically at how to apply mula bandha and uddiyana bandha, as well as some lesser known locks, in forward folds and arm balances, so that you can find maximum therapeutic extension in your asana. We’ll also practice complementary meditation techniques to invite ease and grace into all aspects of your life.

*Sunday, November 18: Find Power in Vulnerability Workshop, 12-2pm

Are you using your strength to protect yourself? Or do you use it to take yourself and those around you to new heights? In this workshop, Henry Winslow will teach you  several powerful techniques, ancient and contemporary, to open the heart and throat -- the energetic seats of unconditional love and authentic expression.

In addition to breaking down the proper mechanical technique behind a sustainable, complete, and therapeutic backbend, we'll also explore various kriya and pranayama to override the evolutionary baggage keeping us living in perpetual defense mode, and return us to our natural state of fearless abundance.

Cost for a single workshop is $35 by 10.31, $40 after. Sign up for both of Henry's workshops, and cost is $60 by 10.31, $70 after.  Sign up HERE.

About the instructor: Henry Winslow is a dedicated yoga practitioner of 8 years, whose teaching is rooted in the Ghosh, Ashtanga, and Dharma Yoga traditions. Although fitness and mobility initially attracted him to the mat, his appreciation for the practice has since expanded. To Henry, yoga is above all else a tool for cultivating clarity. Through workshops, private and group classes, and his podcast Dharma Talk, Henry empowers students worldwide to connect to their innermost selves, where our natural resilience, unlimited power, and universal compassion reside.
