Hotlanta Yoga Teacher TrainingHello Friends,

I’m happy to hear about your interest in Atlanta’s Best Yoga Teacher Training Program! Our next training begins October 7th.

Dates: October 7th through November 27th
Friday nights 6:30 – 9:00pm, Saturdays and Sundays 9:00 – 6:00pm

Upon completion, you will be a certified Athletic Power Yoga instructor and a Registered 200 Hour Yoga Teacher (RYT-200) with Yoga Alliance which will prepare you to teach the gamut of flow yoga styles including Yoga for Beginners, Vinyasa Flow, Power Yoga and Athletic Power Yoga which you can then teach pretty much any where in the world! Hotlanta Yoga certified teachers are working in amazing places like in El Salvador, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Costa Rica, London and more.

My partner and I decided to take the time tested alignment cues of Iyengar Yoga, (my original practice) and the years of training we did with the two guys that originated Power Yoga (Baron Baptiste and Brian Kest) and enhance it with functional movement philosophy and extra core strengthening techniques. Deep core strength creates foundational balance and power that translate into speed, joint stability and an increase in performance that translates into everything a body is asked to do, on or off the mat.

The Training includes:

• In depth alignment cues, modifications, variations, adjustments and contra indications for 70+ postures
• Yoga History and Philosophy
• Breath practices (Pranayama)
• The Business of Yoga
• Unique, Smart and Safe Sequencing
• Meaningful Class Themes
• Intro to Ayurveda
• Pertinent Anatomy and physiology
• Practice Teaching
* 3 Months FREE UNLIMITED YOGA

We believe that yoga should be elevating, challenging and inspiring. It has to be or we wouldn’t keep coming to the mat. So there is a lot of work and and joy in all that we do. We hope to share this with you so you too can be an inspiration to all.

The full price of the 8 week training is $2,100. If you need to, you can take advantage of our payment plan of $300 a week. Please don’t hesitate to contact me to chat or if you have any questions. Looking forward to it.

Peace and Blessings,
Malia Hilliard

Thank you for your interest in the Hotlanta Yoga Teacher Training.

As you know, Yoga is really incredible. It transforms unhealthy, unhappy people in to fit happy ones. It increases strength and flexibility, decreases stress and inspires people to live more conscious lives. Teaching Yoga is profoundly gratifying and provides a fun, healthy and flexible lifestyle. It gives you the freedom to live anywhere, travel if you want and all while you are helping people. It’s pretty amazing.

Yoga has developed for thousands of years into the many forms available today, each having merit (well, mostly) and each having their place, however, we believe that all Yoga should begin with traditional fundamental alignment principles and breath techniques, that every teacher should understand the variations available for each pose including those using props like blocks and straps, and that good teachers know how to both prevent and help treat injury. After completing our 200 Hour course, you will know all the basics of how to teach Vinyasa Flow Yoga based on the alignment principles of Iyengar with variations that can turn any class into an Athletic Power Yoga class. We go over all the main Yoga postures from each category of poses including Standing Postures, Forward Bends, Twists, Balance Postures, Backbends, Inversions, Core Strengtheners, Arm Balances and Restoratives. Of course we also cover the basics on how to create sequences, how to handle the myriad of things that come up in class – like what to do when a pregnant woman shows up to your advanced class or how to help a beginner – as well as how to find your own teaching voice and come from a place of authenticity.

Because it is so important for you to totally submerse yourself in Yoga while you are going through the training, we offer you all the Yoga classes you can take at our studio absolutely free. Sounds crazy I know, but we want you to allow this Yoga Teacher Training to completely transform you, whether you plan on teaching once you have finished or not. Many people take the training simply to deepen their understanding of Yoga and improve their own practice. The Hotlanta Yoga Teacher Training will transform you regardless of your objectives, in the most beautiful way.

Our training is 8 weekends long from July 11th to August 30th, and classes meet Friday nights 7-9, Saturdays 12-8 and Sundays 9:30-6:30 at Atlanta’s best Yoga studio.

Heart of Teaching Yoga

 Damian Viera

Heart of

Teaching Yoga

The heart of teaching yoga is itself a form of yoga, requiring practice, self-reflection, compassion and sensitivity. A teacher with “heart” is a teacher who encourages and inspires, and who is attuned and sensitive to the needs and conditions of each individual student and also to the class as a collective entity unto itself.

For the student, the path of yoga is always personal, and the role of the teacher is to help each student discover the path that is right for that student. How to facilitate this process, how to encourage and direct each student in a way that services his/her unique needs and mindset — that is the art of teaching.

In our Teacher Training course, we will explore the art of teaching through a dynamic and conscious practice – Power Yoga- steeped in both the Ashtanga and Iyengar traditions. The idea is that deepening our personal practice informs our teaching, provides inspiration and gives us the confidence to teach from what we know. The focus will be a non-dogmatic and open approach to what is effective. We will focus on universal principles that apply across all yoga traditions. The course will simultaneously encourage each student to develop self-reliance, as well as compassionate support for the evolution and progress of others in the group.

Each session will focus on a variety of different themes over the course of the training and will include not only group asana practice, but also additional time for discussion, reading bodies and hands-on adjustments. The afternoon work will be reinforced during our morning Yoga practice, as we learn to fine-tune our practice in an individual way.
