Yoga Teacher Training This Fall at All Sport Health and Fitness in Fishkill, NY: Eight-month yoga teacher training with Joelle Van Sickle and guest instructors

Program Director, Joelle Van Sickle, adjusting Ashley Layne.

For the second year in a row, All Sport Health and Fitness in Fishkill is offering an eight-month yoga teacher training in its Mind/Body studio. The comprehensive Yoga Alliance Registered training begins in September and focuses on teaching alignment-based Hatha yoga to a broad population.

All Sport’s teacher training curriculum covers asana, pranayama, anatomy, yogic philosophy and teaching methodology. Joelle Van Sickle, a certified yoga therapist, directs the training along with guest instructors in such areas as chakras, meditation and the art of adjustments. “I believe this program is unique in that it offers students a good amount of teaching time, during which they are supported with constructive feedback,” says Van Sickle. “Also, while a lot of time is spent on methodology, personal practice and self-study are emphasized as gateways toward creative thinking in teaching.”

Sessions take place most Wednesday evenings and one weekend per month, offering participants time to absorb the material and integrate it into their lives. The course runs from September 18 to May 18. The fee is $2,800 for All Sport members and $3,200 for non-members, with payment plans available.
