Sue Siegrist, MBA, eRYT200
I love to learn, and I love to teach. Throughout my whole professional career, I have been dedicated to one thing - helping people to excel and reach their goals. My beginnings in yoga teaching started at a gym, and I have since taught in many different environments, including corporate, studios, and retirement homes. My intention is to create a place where yoga is accessible to all, and learning is fun, safe, and enlightening - while also supporting your personal learning journey.

Yoga Teacher Training Weekly Intensives meet every second weekend of the month. You will be required to meet with one of the lead teacher for additional hours to practice teaching one on one. You will be required to meet with one of the lead teachers plus additional participants, either of your choosing, or the teacher’s choosing to practice teaching to multiple people. You must practice teaching each of the styles of yoga taught, although you may concentrate on one style of yoga throughout the year. Our intentions are to make you the most confident and proficient teacher that you can be, so you are as successful as possible! J
There will be times when you cannot make the weekend class. When this happens, you can:
· Schedule time with the trainers to complete the topics covered during the week
· Continue your training for an additional month
You will be required to complete 20 hours of yoga classes at Tula Yoga. We hope that you will join us for as many classes that you can during your training year. To encourage your practice, one year of unlimited yoga is included in your tuition.
Our Teacher Training also requires one six hour Day of Mindfulness, which occurs every quarter at Tula Yoga Center. This event is co-hosted by Sue Siegrist and Craig Schollenberger, who is a Mindfulness Meditation Teacher. More information is available about Craig Schollenberger and his mindfulness meditation training at: www.craigschollenberger.com.
The Tula Yoga Syllabus has been approved by the Yoga Alliance, and provides information that has been determined to be the most important for education, including Teaching and Practicing Yoga, learning Yoga Ethics/Lifestyle, Teaching Methodology, Anatomy and Physiology, and Practicum. Each module of our syllabus has been carefully crafted to be interesting and to bring value to your teaching.
Our Tula Yoga Teacher Training Objectives:
Overall Objective 1
After completing this teacher training, participants will have a basic idea of how to teach several styles of yoga classes. This teacher training is very experiential, which means that participants will have taught several classes before they graduate, beginning with a single person (a trainer), moving on to a class of three,(with one trainer), and finally ending up with a full class (including one trainer). This gives the teacher trainee the experience of teaching with a safety net, leading to increased confidence.
Overall Objective II
After completing teacher training, the trainee will have an idea of their teaching style, types of classes they would like to teach, their philosophy and mission statement, and a basic idea of how to start on their teaching journey. Much like a start up business, the trainee will take time to plot out the success of their yoga journey.
Overall Objective III
After completing this teacher training, participants will have an understanding of how to modify classes to include all participants, including but not limited to those who have been injured or have minimal range of motion. This entire track stresses the importance of the teacher and their awareness of techniques that foster an inclusive environment for all participants.
To receive certification to teach from Tula Yoga Center, you must:
· Complete 200 hours of training from Tula Yoga Center.
· Demonstrate Proficiency teaching yoga.
· Understand the ethical responsibilities of teaching yoga.
When you enroll in Tula Yoga Teaching Program, you will receive:
Tula Yoga Teacher Training Manual
This manual will provide all of the information that is presented each month. Each month before class, you will receive a packet of information that we will be covering for the current month’s Weekend Intensive.
This notebook is for taking notes! Please take as many notes as possible. There is always something that you will jot down now that will be of value later on.
