experience and confidence in their teaching abilities. Senior PYS Teachers will act as mentors but

certification. If teaching at our location during training sessions is not possible, special

the time given by whatever arrangement is agreed upon.

Pyramid Workshops

The Pyramid Workshop concept was devised to provide a full yoga program for PYS Teacher Trainee's while minimizing the amount of time needed for participation. This workshop format allows potential teachers to conveniently schedule all their classes on one day a month. Monthly classes on a pre-arranged day allow students to plan their calendars for the year. Missed classes may be made up within the yearly cycle. A second workshop each month is provided for CEU Wellness Classes. The overlap time allows for asana practice, assisting, practice teaching, spiritual and social interaction.

Level I classes begin at 9:00 am and end at 1:00 pm

Level II First Chakra classes begin at 1:00 pm and end at 3:00 pm

Level II Second Year classes begin at 9:00 and end at 1:30

Level III 500 hr.classes begin at 1:30 and end at 6:00 pm.

The overlapping workshop time allows teachers to interact and become aware of each other's abilities, specialties and localities. Since everyone occasionally requires a substitute for their classes, this is an important feature. The ability to contact someone you know, who can teach the same basic (core) program, is vital to maintaining continuity, a good client base and financial security. This program allows teachers to: 1. Get to know each other- 2. See each other teach- 3. Experience different approaches- 4. Practice teaching at all three levels- 5. Become a QTT after completing the 1000 hour certification- 6. Have the opportunity to share with each other. 7. Establish a yoga sanga "community"- 8. Acquire CEU's in specialized yoga classes.

LOCATIONS... The monthly Pyramid workshops take place at the Yoga Room, Hampstead, NH.

YOGA CLASS INFORMATION Additional weekly classes are available as are monthly seminars to help the student to achieve mastery over their personal asana, pranayama, meditation and relaxation practices.
