Shaktiyoga New York 300-Hour Advanced Teacher Training

Julie Dohrman, founder of Shaktiyoga New York Align + Flow, presents an Advanced Teacher Training like no other! You will be invited to further develop your skills, savvy, and intuitive wisdom while learning new applied techniques that will create a full circle of excellence in the craft of teaching yoga. Teaching requires a sensitivity that takes training, and only through the experience of being in the classroom with a wide variety of students can the information from your 200 hour training begin to take root.


The focus of this training is on helping teachers develop a more balanced, sophisticated, and holistic approach to teaching with clarified intention for a sustained life of practice, offering, and livelihood. Trainees will sharpen their teaching skills, knowledge of anatomy and therapeutic approaches to yoga, learn specialized yoga practices, and investigate personal aims of practice and changes that have occurred on the path. Overall you’ll learn that you’re creating a personal expression of what you’ve practiced that is shared with your students.

Teaching skills will include:

  • Sequencing vinyasa, advanced asana, and peak-pose classes
  • Expanded Therapeutic yoga knowledge and methods
  • Sharpen your verbal instruction & observation skills to recognize patterns and truly teach to what you see
  • Refinement of Hands-on Assists
  • Deeper understanding of the relationship of the categories of poses; their form and function
  • Strengthened practical understanding of alignment principles and deepening your own practice
  • Use of Themes, metaphor, and myth
  • Learning the pacing, sequencing, and craft of teaching Align + Flow classes

Advanced Teacher Training will offer expert guest faculty and mentors to teach you specialized practices of yoga, activating a more well rounded, holistic approach to teaching.

They will include: 

  • Developing your Voice and the Heart and Soul of Your Unique Offering - Jessica Boyleston-Fagonde
