TEACHERS

We have some of the best teachers in the country associated with our program, and we pride ourselves on the range and depth of experience they represent. The principle instructors in the program are Yoga on High founders Marcia Miller and Linda Oshins, long-time teachers who are well respected within the central Ohio community and by their peers on a national level. We also have an impressive roster of nationally-known teachers who visit our studio each year. For example, in the coming year you will be able to study with Rodney Yee and Colleen Saidman Yee, Lorin Roche and Camille Maurine, David Keil, Jason Crandell, Doug Keller, and Stephanie Lopez.

We believe in offering many opportunities to hear from various perspectives, giving you depth and breadth in your practice.


How Does It Work?

Every year we offer core, required workshops (five over the course of the training) and elective workshops specific to your course of study. You can choose from approximately 250 hours of programming yearly to sculpt your particular program. Your plan will include workshops and intensives, assisting master teachers in class, and individualized mentored projects of your choosing. This is a blueprint that can be changed at any time, but it focuses your training and sets clear goals for the year.

The study, practice, and teaching necessary to graduate are designed to take 2.5 years to complete. You may move through the program more quickly or take longer, but the pricing structure extends over thirty months. When choosing a 300-program for yourself, consider the advantages of a long-term commitment like this. It gives you the opportunity to practice and teach what your are learning, internalize and polish your skills over time, all the while remaining an engaged member of a vibrant community of your fellows. People in this program often remark on the benefits of being part of an ongoing, sharing group of talented teachers.

The Yoga on High 300 hour Advanced Teacher Training Program is registered with Yoga Alliance and exceeds Yoga Alliance guidelines regarding hourly requirements in each study category.

Yoga on High’s Teacher Training course is well thought-out, thorough, and very well taught. I finished feeling confident in my ability to teach I had a wonderful experience completing my training with Yoga on High. The program was very intense and provided extensive teaching, instruction and knowledge that was relevant to the subject. The instructors were very supportive and made themselves available for training, instruction and additional support.

The program SURPASSED my high expectations. When anyone asks me about ongoing education: YOHI is the first word out of my mouth. While I had initially hoped to add “tools” to my teaching toolbox, I came away with those tools and a much deeper appreciation (and acceptance) of myself. I also appreciated the rigor. I am aware of other programs that gloss over things and hours and I’m glad we’re required to be accountable.
