Tahoe Yoga Institute and Life Yoga brings 500 level yoga teacher training to Lake Tahoe

TAHOE CITY and#8211; Life Yoga, in partnership with Tahoe Yoga Institute (TYI), Tahoe Cityand#8217;s community yoga studio, will offer a 500 Level Teacher Training, Yoga for Structural Integrity (YSI), starting in February.

Students can participate in individual workshops or may select the YSI certification track which requires additional hours. The first workshop, a Pre-Teaching Training, will take place Feb. 26-28, 2010.

Developed by expert instructor, Lynne Gardner, YSI focuses on the integration of the teachings and ideologies of the classic schools of yoga, as well as the related fields of physical therapy, bodywork, chiropractic and various movement modalities. and#8220;The certification program gives teachers the compassion, objectivity and depth of knowledge needed to support students in their search for increased awareness, and the tools to guide them in a safe environment,and#8221; says Gardner. and#8220;This training was inspired by my personal journey through yoga, my desire to make the practice of yoga a tangible reality for the masses, and the commitment of my students in the Tahoe community.

Tahoe Yoga Institute is partnering with Life Yoga to provide a contemplative, safe environment to practice. Discounted lodging is also available for those participating outside of the Tahoe Basin. and#8220;Our community is the embodiment of nature and wellness,and#8221; says Madona Casini, owner and instructor of TYI. and#8220;It makes sense for us to bring this unique style of training to our community, a community that supports the practice of yoga with our studios and skilled instructors.and#8221;

The Pre-Teacher Training will take place Friday, Feb. 26 through Sunday, Feb. 28, 2010. This workshop will introduce Life Yogaand#8217;s philosophies and YSIand#8217;s teacher training through asana, mini teacher trainings and lectures. Cost to attend Februaryand#8217;s workshop is $150.
