Yoga Teacher Training Program at Pima Community College
Pima Community College has partnered with Yoga Therapy College, an affiliate of Integrative Yoga Therapy, to offer the 200-hour comprehensive introduction to the fundamentals of teaching yoga, with a therapeutic approach. Spring teacher training begins January 20 and runs through June 3. Classes are held at Northwest Campus on Friday evenings and Saturdays.
It is well known that yoga can enhance our physical and emotional well-being, but when yoga is practiced with the therapeutic form, it can help prevent and aid recovery from physical and mental ailments. Those interested in becoming a certified yoga instructor and currently certified instructors will benefit their students from the techniques learned in this program.
Participants in yoga transform their body immediately after class with improved brain function, lower stress levels and increased flexibility; after a few months with lower blood pressure, improved lung capacity, improved sexual function, reduced chronic pain, anxiety relief, lower blood sugar levels in diabetics and improved sense of balance; and after years with strong bones, healthy weight and lower risk of heart disease.
Cost: $2,995, includes all instructional materials. Payment plans are available. Location: Pima Community College, Northwest Campus, 7600 N. Shannon, Tucson. For more information, call 520-206-6354, visit YogaTherapyCollege.com or Pima.edu/continuinged. See ad, page 17.
