Why Yoga Teacher Training

Do you LOVE your yoga practice?  Do you wonder why it makes you feel so great?  Do you want to learn how to safely and effectively perform the poses you seen done in the classes you attend?  Or, do you want to share the love you have for Yoga with the world around you?  Maybe you don’t want to teach a class, but you want to know more about yoga.  If you answered yes to any of these questions, Yoga Teacher Training with Yoga East is for you!

Why Train with Yoga East

Are you a busy professional interested in learning more about your favorite practice, but just cant seem to figure out when you could fit it into your crazy life?  Do you have a full schedule balancing your children, household, school work and/or job?  Is it impossible to dedicate an entire weekend to school for months on end?  Do you want a quality Yoga Teacher Training that doesn’t break the bank?  Yoga Teacher Training with Yoga East is for YOU! 

Yoga East Teacher Training is led by Jennifer Dixon, ERYT 500.  She completed her 500 Hr Teacher Training under a Baptiste Certified Power Yoga School in Philadelphia, Pa.  Her teacher, Bill Raup, was an early student of Baron Baptiste and hosted him (and many other well known yogis) for the training and in studio special events throughout her training.  After she completed her 500 hour training, Jennifer went on to do another Ashtanga Intensive teacher training under the Late Donna Feiner, a Level II authorized teacher, apprenticed under Manju Pathabi Jois.  Since Donna’s passing, Jennifer has studied with Manju exclusively.  Jennifer invites her studio teachers with the same passion that he holds to help teach the curriculum, so you will have a well-rounded view of the practice of yoga.


What does Yoga East Offer that’s Unique?

Yoga East’s 200 hour Teacher Training Program, “Yoga for Every Body” is the area’s ONLY fully flexible & modular Yoga Teacher Training program recognized by Yoga Alliance in Chattanooga, Tn.  We are the only school that allows you to attend the classes in your own time, and at your own pace.  If you can’t make all the classes in one semester, we offer multiple semesters a year, so you can come when your schedule allows.  You have two years to complete your training, OR, you can complete your training in just over 4 months.


Yoga East is the BEST Value

Yoga East Teacher Training is the ONLY  program in the area that includes a 1-year unlimited membership to the studio.  We believe that the best yoga teachers are the teachers spending time on their mats, so we offer 1-year unlimited yoga to all our Teacher Trainees regardless the amount of time it takes them to complete our training program.  This will help you grow stronger in your personal practice, which (we believe) will strengthen your teaching practice.  Your tuition covers the training, the 1-year membership, and the ability to come back and refine your skills even after you graduate from our program.  This means, your Continuing Education Hours are either completely free with our program or discounted heavily. 

Jennifer believes the 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training is just the beginning of your deeper awareness of the yoga practice, and she wants to remain a resource to you, as a professional Yoga Teacher.  The 200 Hr Yoga Teacher Training does not stop after you receive your Certificate; at least not with Yoga East.  Jennifer’s goal is to create a long term teacher/student relationship with every student that goes through Yoga East’s unique program, so that is why any student can come back for continuing education….yes, either FREE or steeply discounted. 

No other program in the area offers so many perks to their students.  Plus, if you sign up early, you get a 10% discount, a savings of $250!  Even more, starting with our Spring 2018 semester, if you pay in full, you’ll get a 15% discount AND get to start practicing with us at the studio, for free from the day that you register!
