Workshops held at Club Fit
584 N. State Rd., Briarcliff Manor, NY
Philosophy and focus: The YTA is a 501(c)3 volunteer-run nonprofit dedicated to deepening and enhancing the quality of hatha yoga teaching and fostering the yoga community in the tri-state area. We offer monthly three-hour workshops for teachers and serious students.
What type of workshops do you offer? Our workshops cover all styles of yoga and related practices and are led by nationally recognized teachers and highly accomplished local instructors. The 2019-20 season features Mona Anand, Alison West, Lee Albert, Deirdre Breen and Sandra Anderson, among others, and covers topics such as yoga for scoliosis, pranayama, positional therapy, mudras, and the three pillars of Ashtanga yoga. Workshops take place on Saturdays, from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m., and cost $45 for members and $65 for nonmembers in advance or $55/$75 at the door. The September 14 season opener with celebrated yogi Ravi Singh will be followed by our annual Prana Party, which is open to all.
Do you offer teacher training? No, but we do offer a one-year complimentary membership to current yoga teacher trainees. Additionally, Yoga Alliance-certified teachers receive three CEUs for each workshop and can therefore complete their continuing education requirement in just one year with the YTA.
What else? YTA membership is open to teachers, studio owners and individual practitioners. Members receive $20 off each workshop, a monthly newsletter and use of the Club Fit facilities on the day of the workshop.
