Enroll at Spirit of Yoga for Enriching Instruction: New sessions are forming now for January 2013 Yoga Teacher Training

Stuart Rice recently became the yoga teaching training program director at the Southwest Institute of Healing Arts (SWIHA), in Tempe, and he is excited about the new sessions that are forming now.

SWIHA’s Yoga Teacher Training draws elements from a variety of long-established yoga traditions. Rice, an experienced master yoga teacher and developer of Bhakti Warrior Yoga, blends his life experiences, knowledge of yoga philosophy and love of the physical, energetic and breathing practice of yoga into his classes. He allows people to more deeply investigate the integration of clarity into their lives. Classes begin for the 200-hour training January 15 and March 25, 2013. A fast track program begins January 22.

Yoga Teacher Training is based on a foundation of Unity Yoga, which strives to teach an authentic expression of yoga with a transformational approach, honoring a diversity of practices and belief systems. Their program rests on the principle that yoga is a unifying tool for creating health, well-being and a deep spiritual connection. The school’s commitment is to provide structure, with educational freedom, so that all may find their own truth while incorporating a “living yoga” approach to their lives.

A component of SWIHA, Spirit of Yoga is world-class yoga studio and teacher training center in Tempe that provides drop-in yoga classes to the community, special events and related educational opportunities to the public. Accepting applicants from around the world, Spirit of Yoga offers students a course of study to obtain 200-hour and 600-hour yoga instructor certification, highlighted by a unique 800-hour program, affording the student the ability to acquire certification as a yoga therapist.
