Erica Garcia, owner of Nueva Alma Yoga and Wellness, in Yonkers, will offer a 200-hour interdisciplinary yoga teacher training beginning September 7. The program incorporates Iyengar, Ashtanga and Vinyasa yoga as well as aspects of life coaching. Anyone interested in the training can learn more by attending one of two free open houses the studio is hosting this month: August 25, from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m., or August 26, from 8:15 to 9 p.m.

The 200-hour training consists of classes every Monday and Wednesday from 5:30 to 10 p.m., as well as approximately two Saturdays and/or Sundays per month (student’s choice), through January 19, 2020 (graduation day).

The director of teacher training for the A.L.M.A. Institute, a center for yoga and holistic education, Garcia is one of the most seasoned yoga teachers in the Westchester area, with more than a decade of experience and thousands of teaching hours. She also founded the Ceiba Soul Foundation.

“I’m offering this interdisciplinary training for students who want to study and train locally with me without having to take time off work,” she says. “I’ve made affordable payment plans available, and the program will meet the new Yoga Alliance RYT-200 standards.”

Cost: $4,250 for full tuition or those on payment plans, or $4,000 if paid in full 30 days before September 7. A work-study option can be applied to offset a limited portion of tuition.
