200-hr Yoga Teacher Training

When your yoga practice becomes your true passion, 
it’s time to go deeper! 

At Bee Yoga Fusion, our 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training is a journey into a deeper understanding of yoga beyond just the shapes we make with our bodies. This in-depth training will give you the tools, techniques, and knowledge to safely teach vinyasa and hatha yoga, prenatal yoga, and Yoga Nidra to a broad student base. The training will also guide you through teaching to specific populations including the visually impaired, LGBT, seniors, and prenatal students. At the conclusion of the training, you will be prepared to teach yoga, live yoga, and to step into your truth as a person and an instructor.

In this training you will:
  • Gain knowledge to enhance and elevate your own practice
  • Learn the history of yoga
  • Delve into the philosophy of yoga
  • Expand your mental practice using meditation
  • Benefit from small group instruction via Zoom and in-person meetings
  • Understand how to confidently teach yoga to real people of all shapes and sizes
  • Learn how to create an environment where every person feels supportive and welcome
  • Offer trauma-informed assists to all of your students
  • Learn from an experienced and qualified instructor, Gretchen Schock (E-RYT 500). Gretchen has taught more than four thousand hours of yoga and has owned her yoga studio for the past 11 years. She is known for teaching to a diverse student base in her vigorous all-levels classes, she infuses her love of dance and balance creatively into each class.
