200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training 2018
with Nick Montoya
April 6 – August 12

Nothing is random. That you are reading the description of this program means this journey is something that may be calling to you. We are proud to offer this Yoga Alliance certified training program that will be a life changing experience. Your practice will reach levels you never before thought possible and will expose you to a breadth of knowledge and learning that otherwise would take years to attain. Students of all levels are encouraged to use this training to begin or continue a journey of personal exploration and to develop or enhance your current yoga practice. Not everyone that takes a teacher training program plans to teach. As Nick Montoya states, “The fastest way to deepen your learning about something, is to learn how to teach it.”

What You Will Learn

You will learn from the Ageless Program founder and Shala owner, Nick Montoya. He brings ten years of yoga teaching and 30 years of leadership development to this training.

Teaching others helps to gain confidence and experience. You will begin teaching others the very first weekend and leave the program prepared to teach several styles of classes anywhere. Trainees are challenged on many levels and life changing transformation occurs naturally. Shala means “home”. The Shala is a safe and trusting home for your teacher training journey where you are supported, encouraged, and loved. (See opposite side for specific areas of study)
