Joy and Jill Teacher Training.jpg

Joy Of Yoga and Wildwood Yoga will be conducting a 200HR RYT Training and Immersion for anyone wanting to become a certified yoga teacher or those that would like to deepen their physical practice and understanding of yoga's history, philosophy and practical application in today's world.

Joy Page and Jill Dunlap co-created the hatha based curriculum that will be the basis for this training. The curriculum emphasizes alignment, anatomy, philosophy and meditation.

Teacher Training will take place over 10 weekends. One weekend per month Feb-Sept of 2018:
Feb 24-25 (Sat-Sun)
Mar 23-25 (Fri-Sun)
Apr 28-29 (Sat-Sun)
Jun 1-3 (Fri-Sun)
Jun 23-24(Sat-Sun)
Jul 13-15 (Fri-Sun)
Aug 4-5 (Sat-Sun)

Sep 8-9 (Sat-Sun)
Sep 28-30 (Fri-Sun)
Friday Hours: 6-9pm
Saturday Hours: 9-6pm
Sunday Hours: 9-6pm

Each weekend will be represented by a different Hindu Deity. During that weekend we will weave the iconography, mythology, mantras and energy/role of that deity throughout the philosophy teachings, meditations and chanting.

Offered with our 2018 Yoga Teacher Training Program is additional training to become a Reiki Master with Sarah Buehner. The classes required to become a Reiki Master will be held in addition to and outside of the Teacher Training weekends. These sessions in their entirety will be an additional 20 hours. Familiarizing ourselves with the subtler components of energy anatomy  enhances our ability to guide our students through the practice of yoga. Reiki is, at it's origin, a practice that began and developed in India. For this reason, it pairs nicely with and overlaps in many ways the practice of Yoga. Cost for Joy of Yoga teacher trainees for all 3 levels of Reiki attunements (Level 1 through Reiki Master) is $900.
