Would You Like to Share Your Love for Yoga and Teach with Confidence and Ease around the World?
Would you like to help your clients become happier, healthier and wiser while transforming your own life? Are you ready to find your authentic voice and style of yoga teaching?
Have you ever thought about using yoga's immense power to change the world and transform lives in the process? Looking for ways to develop you own yoga teaching style and unique voice? Are you a free-thinker and not in awe of guru-led strict systems? Does the thought now of marketing your new yoga skills fill you with dread?
I know how you feel exactly because these were my thoughts and aspirations when I began teaching yoga 15 years ago. I thought my deep passion for yoga will be enough to pave the path to become a fulfilled yoga instructor, bringing in a fair income and help my clients, friends and family to transform their lives with my help.
Building a successful yoga teaching career was not as straightforward as I wished for. The journey to my dreams wasn’t always easy and I had my own fair share of struggle on the way.
I began without any formal teacher training to follow my passion and with great excitement started teaching new students at a local community college. After six months, I realized, I really needed to receive proper instruction and began taking yoga workshops throughout the country. After studying with over twenty popular yoga teachers, I found my true mentor in Jonny Kest. I travelled to study with him personally several times. It was there that I fell in love with his style of yoga called Vinyasa Yoga. Today this style of yoga is most recognized by many respected yogi’s as the most popular due to its magical ability to provide healing, lasting and powerful results from students of all walks of life.
After ten years of establishing a popular yoga studio, I began offering sought-after corporate yoga programs to top companies in and around St. Louis, teaching over 11 corporate yoga classes now weekly. I also had the privilege of instructing the St. Louis Rams professional football team, and additional been chosen to present yoga at top local events with over 20,000 people attending.
I always felt called to create a yoga teacher training program to help yoga enthusiasts share this wonderful practice with the world.
Dreaming about inspiring and empowering change in the world?
Imagine a beautiful soothing and small yoga group with world class yoga instruction offering you hands-on yoga training and ample time and space away from life’s hectic pace. Can you see yourself wake up with a big smile as you prepare to spend another full day learning more about the art of living?
St Louis Yoga Teacher Training
My goal was to put together a teacher training program that is based on real life success. Sharing what works and why is my passion. Perhaps it is the tremendous health benefits or the way your body feels after yoga practice that excites you the most. Perhaps at a deeper level, you really like being challenged, and find yoga helps you become stronger and ready to take on the next step. Or you are more comfortable staying present and able to release negativity, fear and judgment.
Michelle Maue, world class yoga instructor will show you how to face ongoing and constant challenges one step at a time. She will show you how to teach yoga in any setting from gyms to corporations to yoga studios. And most importantly encourage you to find your own genuine voice and develop your unique approach to teaching yoga on the basis of your own strengths.
From the first day, our focus is to build up your confidence and give you hands-on support to create momentum alongside with step by step instructions taught by leading experts in the yoga and marketing field.
Each day, your yoga teacher training flies by as you begin to build the proper foundation. You role-play with fellow students as you learn the basic building blocks of breathing, holding longer postures, how to find your unique edge, and still the choppy waters of our mind.
Our yoga teacher training results?
On average, eight out of ten of our yoga certification graduates begin a whole new career in yoga teaching. They are confident and ready to teach yoga in corporations, school settings, yoga studios, and even start their own yoga studios.
I plan to add yoga classes at my fitness studio and believe the my certification has definitely helped me to become more marketable. I carry this certification as a learning tool rather than a know it all.
I will tribute to the field yoga by inspiring more African Americans to get involved in yoga. So many African Americans are not in the best health and so many problems can easily be prevented by doing simply the three part breath.
I feel confident to say, that now I will always continue my yoga practice as a result of this training and teach yoga for others indefinitely." Denay Reynolds
I want to do a couple of things now that I am graduating. One, I plan to teach yoga part-time close to home, also teach at Wellbridge and teach at a community college.
I am excited about these endless new possibilities and will keep an open mind. Thank you Clayton Yoga." Brittany Cloud
