300hr Teacher Training Program

coming june 2019. registration open until april.

AWAK{in} is an opportunity to go beyond the traditional 200hr experience into the deeper realms of the practice of yoga. It is a journey back into your own body and heart, where the spirit of the practice lives. 

We invite you to not only wake up, but AWAK{in}.

{be}Studio is excited to announce Sioux City’s first 300hr Yoga Study and Teacher Training Program. Registered with Yoga Alliance as a 300hr Program, {be}Studio is proud to serve your intentions as a student and teacher of yoga right here in Sioux City, IA. We are ready to offer you a program that is sound, integrated and truly expansive without having to travel too far from the comfort of your own home. 

A 200hr training offers the foundational aspects of yoga that serves as a base for both self practice and guiding others in the practice. As Jackie often says - “a 200hr program is a key that unlocks a door to infinite doors.”

A 300hr program is, then, choosing a dimension of the yoga practice and exploring that perspective at depth. Our 300hr program is open to those who have already been certified at a 200hr Level from any program and are interested in devoting themselves to a deeper awareness of this dynamic and ever evolving system of self-actualization. 

It is our intention that AWAK{in} be a journey through the historical, philosophical and subtle dimensions of the practice back into your own body, mind and heart. The design of this experience is inspired by the Koshas - or energetic layers that move from the outermost layer of the body to the deep spiritual core of consciousness that is Ananda (Bliss). Each “module” or spiral of the program is embraced by the focus that within the physical nature of our bodies holds the living wisdom of the practice. 

Through a labyrinth of learning, we invite you to more deeply access the Practice of Living through the intelligent and ancient art of yoga.

To do so, we will dive deeper into the somatic experience of movement from the most physical to the most subtle - physiological, philosophical, emotional, energetic and spiritual. Like the breath that expands out and draws back in, we will continually seek wisdom from the ancient teachings of yoga and then draw into our own personal experience of living - weaving the two together like an exquisite dance of mind, body and heart.


about our program

learning objectives

Students will deepen their knowledge of physical anatomy as it relates to the somatic experiencing of the practice. More specific attention will be placed on not only the physical structure of the body such as muscles and bones, but also other systems including the nervous, endocrine, lymphatic and digestive systems within the practices of yoga asana, pranayama, meditation and more. 

Students will distill their knowledge and skill on how to both practice and guide others in the practice of pranayama through weaving the wisdom of energetic anatomy, mudras, mantras and bandhas in the experience. 

Students will expand their understanding of ayurveda as it relates to the mind and emotional body. We will explore yogic practices related to clarifying and purifying the mental body as a way of finding balance and equanimity within the entire system. 

Students will gain in depth awareness of themselves, their own journeys and how their habits/patterns (samskaras) influence facilitating the practice for others. We will review concepts of spiritual bypassing and how this relates to our personal and professional embodiment of the practice of yoga in community and relationship. 

Viewing the role of the teacher as a canvas for self-actualization, students will explore how to guide self and others through self-transformative experiences. 

Rooted in the realm of Tantra, students will gain confidence in accessing their most radiant self as it relates to the practices outlined in this tantric texts and teachings. We will explore living with a profound sense of self love and compassion, a deep appreciation for this life, passionate living, courage to honor your own unique path without judging or comparing to others' journeys, Freedom in expression and JOY. 

Students will increase their knowledge of Tantric wisdom, including, the history and philosophy of Tantra. 

Students will harness the power of stillness, observation and examine the role of meditation that is so often missed in today’s yoga. Both historic and contemporary meditation practices will be examined and experienced. 

Students will identify various special populations in yoga and learn specific wisdom in how to serve them. We will specifically explore populations related to mental and emotional wellness and physical manifestations of mental and emotional challenges (i.e. chronic pain, fibromyalgia, etc). Students will understand the practice as a way of offering wholeness and healing to ourselves and our students, by returning back to the intelligent nature of the body, will be the thread to our learning.
