I graduated from the 200 hour Dayton Method Teacher Training Program in August 2009. I had been practicing at Yoga Tribe since Christmas 2007 and was looking to deepen my practice. I was also interested in sharing my passion for the Dayton method with my fellow practitioners, by learning to instruct the series, so I decide to choose the 200 hour Dayton Method Teacher Training Program. The training was immensely challenging for me from a physical and emotional standpoint. I was concerned that taking 11 classes per week would stifle my love for the series, but instead I found an even stronger passion for the class by deepening my understanding of the postures. It was a huge change from my normal life of staying home with my four small kids. I missed the kids a lot, but it was only for a month and the benefits have far outweighed the challenges. It’s an interesting dynamic spending a month straight with what appears to be complete strangers, but the experience draws you together. You begin to rely on one another and find that the people in your training class are not strangers they are cherished friends.

Jason is ever-mindful of the emotions of the group and works towards fostering relationships that will build the class towards a more fulfilling training experience. The clinics, anatomy and philosophy classes provided a deeper understanding of the yoga practice as a whole. The posture clinics not only helped me understand how to dialogue each posture they also helped me understand the mechanics of the postures. I particularly enjoyed the anatomy section of the training because it prepared me to help students through their individual physical challenges within the classroom. The 200 hour Dayton Method Teacher Training Program helped me gained a deeper understanding of the Dayton method and how to share it with others. I now teach 3 classes a week at Yoga Tribe. I strongly recommend the program to anyone wanting to deepen their practice as well as to those who desire to share the benefits of hot yoga with others.
