Yoga Teacher Training (200 hours)

September 23, 2018 - January 13, 2019

This course provides participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively teach asana, pranayama and basic meditation. But it doesn’t stop there. This is a comprehensive program that dives into the full range of yoga practice including its ancient traditions and spirituality.

During this course, you will explore cultural, philosophical, scientific, cosmological and mythological roots of yoga and gain insight into the origins and deeper meanings behind yogic practices. This course is designed as a yoga lab where you will experience the four paths of yoga, develop a personal sadhana practice, consider philosophical concepts in your day to day life, and participate in discussions that encourage mindful reflection on yogic observances. The goal of this multi-layered training experience is to enrich, inform, and inspire your teaching and personal practice for years to come. Knowledge gained in this training will distinguish you among yoga teachers, and can lead to many unexpected and exciting new adventures.

"Quest Yoga Arts 200-hour teacher training has been a transformational and amazing experience. Kelly Devi is a true teacher. Her extensive knowledge and passion for the tradition of yoga is evident in just one conversation. The training embodies the true essence and philosophy of yoga, including the mental, spiritual and physical aspects (far beyond what I ever thought “yoga” to be!) Kelly is organized, patient, wise, inspiring and dedicated in preparing her students to succeed in their own personal journey, whatever path that may be. The training exceeded my expectations and I am so grateful for the vast knowledge I have learned in just a couple of months. This experience has increased my confidence in teaching others and has provided me with tools that will last a lifetime.”  ~Antoinette

Adapting Asana for Moms-to-Be
Continuing Education for Yoga Teachers

December 9, 2018

Yoga teachers who teach to the general population need a basic understanding of pregnancy and the unique needs of pregnant women to provide safe and confident instruction when pregnant women take regular yoga classes. This class goes well beyond what was learned in Basic Teacher Training, dispels common misconceptions and provides specific guidance that fills in the information gaps many yoga teachers discover when they have pregnant women in their classes.

“My 200 hour training touched on modifying for prenatal students, but I was never completely confident when a pregnant student came to class. Kelly provided so much insight, not only about modifying poses, but about what questions to ask and what poses to avoid. I wish I had taken this workshop years ago!" ~Debbie

"I not only learned more than I expected, I gained a deeper awareness and ability to modify for pregnancy. As a teacher, the first priority should be like a physician: to cause no harm. Completely recommend this workshop to all yoga teachers". ~Tina
