500-hour Alignment Yoga Teacher Training

Deepen your personal understanding of yoga, and develop the skills to teach yoga both in the classroom and in one-on-one settings. The more deeply we understand the yoga, the more clearly we can see our students’ paths unfold on many levels. Scott Anderson, founder of Alignment Yoga, has trained hundreds of teachers over 20 years. He encourages students to go deeper physically, intellectually and spiritually into the practice. His teacher training program empowers participants as they learn to fully integrate in their own body the science of yoga. Instruction is a compilation of his vast understanding of human anatomy to support the benefits of yoga asana. The course design and in-depth manual provide an impressive foundation for learning.

Julia Siporin is the lead instructors. Julia came to yoga in 1973 and meditation in 1975. Yoga helped her deal with stress and teach more effectively during her 26-year career as an elementary school teacher and team leader. After retiring, Julia graduated from Sarahjoy Marsh’s 200 hr YTT and infused daily Lifeskills and Yoga philosophy into her classes. Ever the life-long learner, Julia became enamored with the strong anatomy components of Alignment Yoga. She graduated from both of Scott Anderson’s 200 hr and 500 hr Alignment Yoga Teacher Trainings. She taught the Alignment Yoga 200 hour teacher training in 2016 and 2017, assisted in the Alignment Yoga 500 hour training, and will lead the AY 500 hour training beginning the Fall of 2018. She is registered as an E-RYT 500 and YACEP with Yoga Alliance.

The training is offered as weekend sessions every other month over a 2-year period. All intensives must be taken to be eligible for 500-hour certification. Scott Anderson will be teaching in the June intensives in 2019 and 2020.
