Anna Winkler will be the primary teacher, with assistance from other Shakti Teachers and perhaps some outside teachers as well for Anatomy & Philosophy. The style you will learn to teach is Alignment Based Classical Hatha Yoga.
Contact Anna if you're interested or have any questions. Looking Forward to it!! Hope you'll join us...
Robert Moses will teach some of the Anatomy & Philosophy segments. He has been teaching and practicing yoga for over 50 years!
Prem Sadasivananda may teach some of the Philosophy segments. He has been teaching and practicing yoga for over 30 years.
We may have one more Anatomy teacher as well.
Additional Shakti Faculty
Andre Witek will introduce some concepts, techniques and practices for understanding therapeutic yoga.
Emily Ramos will go over teaching methodologies including use of voice, identifying and understanding your particular learning and teaching style and how to teach to all types of students.
To receive your teaching certificate you must attend the entire program of 181 contact hours. You can miss up to 12 hours of this, but anything more than that must be made up in a private session (1 hour private tutoring per 3 hours missed) at a rate of $95/hour. If you miss more than 19 contact hours, you cannot make it up in private sessions and you will not receive a teaching certificate, even though you have paid in full for the training.
You must complete all homework assignments and the final exam.
You must also teach a minimum of two full classes, observe a minimum of two full classes and assist a minimum of two full classes (for a total of 6 classes), as well as participate in giving and receiving feedback to and from your fellow trainers during practice teaching times.
Yoga Alliance Certification
You will need your teaching certificate from Shakti (or any other Yoga Alliance certified school whose training you have completed).

'I completed my 200 hour yoga teacher training in 2012 with Anna Winkler. I found it to be one of the most enriching experiences of my life. Learning yogic philosophy and gaining a deeper understanding was life changing for me. I am forever in Anna’s debt. She has boundless knowledge in so many different areas of yoga, and teaches with humility and patience. I highly recommend this training." ~ Jane Guzzi
"I completed Anna's Yoga Teacher Training in 2011 and have been grateful ever since. She is extremely kind and patient as well as very knowledgeable in classical yoga texts and teaching asanas. But, what sets her apart from other teachers and their teacher training programs is her ability to know what each student needs, and to focus her teaching to meet that need. Once you understand, you can pass that knowledge on to your students. If you are taking this training to teach classes yourself or just to deepen your own practice, you will not be disappointed. I highly recommend Anna's YTT." ~ Kim Reynolds
