Caroline offers one semi-private 200-hour Teacher Training annually in Stonington, Maine.  Her next 200-hour Teacher Training will be held in the summer of 2020.  If you are interested in being a part of one of these small group trainings, please send an e-mail directly to Caroline through the contact page of this website.  

Location: Stonington, Maine

This 200-hour Teacher Training is for existing teachers who wish to refine their craft, for those wishing to become teachers, and for serious students who simply wish to deepen their practice.


Course Overview

This course will provide you with:

  • an introduction to yoga history and philosophy and its relevance in our world today

  • the tools to create a consistent personal practice that can withstand the ups and downs of life

  • a thorough grounding in applied anatomy and physiology as it relates to movement patterns in yoga that far exceed the standards set by Yoga Alliance 

  • in-depth understanding of foundational postures and transitions

  • appreciation for basic factors governing range of motion

  • the ability to create intelligent sequencing for a balanced and sustainable practice

  • the ability to offer safe and effective hands-on physical adjustments that enhance self-awareness in new students and that facilitate fresh discovery in experienced students

  • the ability to deliver clear and concise cues that invite inquiry and exploration

  • confidence in leading mixed-level classes

  • a deep respect for the sacredness of the yoga tradition and our ethical responsibility as teachers to uphold a manner of living that reflects our commitment to unity, wholeness and peace.

This is a professional certification course and graduation is not a given.  Successful completion of David Keil’s "Anatomy for Yoga Teacher Training Course" is required prior to the start of the program so that you are well-equipped to make the most of the live anatomy portion of the training. In this way we will be able to focus our time together on more in-depth exploration rather than having to review superficial concepts and basic terminology.  

Guided meditation, pranayama and asana practice, analysis of these techniques, and how to both practice and teach them will lead us to the very heart of the program which is ACTUAL PRACTICE TEACHING. Sensitivity and respect will be shown to each person's unique process and pace of learning, and you will receive massive support and encouragement from me as you make the transition from student to teacher.

I welcome you with open arms to join me for the learning adventure of a lifetime! Please don't hesitate to reach out to me with any questions you might have to help determine if this training is the right fit for you.
