Abhaya Yoga Center Announces 3rd Annual Yoga Teacher Training

Nancy LaNasa, Abhaya Yoga Center owner and director, announced today that she will host Abhaya’s 3rd annual 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training program. The training will span from September 2013 through May 2014.  Registrants will participate in intensive trainings for one weekend a month for these 9 months.

The teacher training program will allow for immersion in asana, alignment, yogic philosophy, Sanskrit, and meditation. Daily asana practice is a requirement, and the required reading covers an extensive and thorough books list.  Each of our participants will mentor with an Abhaya Senior Teacher, thus allowing for a deeper relationship to all aspects of the teacher training, asana, and meditation practice generating a well-rounded and in-depth teacher training experience.

Guest teachers for the teacher training program will include Catherine L. McCarthy of New Orleans (, Alison West of New York City (, and Prudence F. Bruns, PhD.
