{be} Studio, now a Registered Yoga School, excitedly announces their next 200 hour teacher training program – this time in as a 4 week intensive!

Intelligently and uniquely designed; this program will enhance any student’s desire to learn the practice of yoga as a deeper lifestyle and prepare you to teach and guide others in the practice.

One of Jackie’s greatest passions is teaching the yoga student who wishes to interweave the practice deeper into their hearts and lives. This program will be an intimate and one of a kind experience. Individualized in that it will be limited to 10 participants only in order to cultivate a deep space of learning and connection. Having a spark for the diverse channels of the practice, we will study various styles of yoga including vinyasa but also Hatha, Tantra and Bhakti Traditions. Teachers and experts from surrounding communities will be brought in for other areas of study such as anatomy and physiology, pre/post natal and other specialty aspects of the practice.

Jackie has a deep passion for remaining a student and so the wisdom that she offers is fresh and relevant; yet deeply rooted in the ancient practices of yoga. It is authentic to the practice and she holds a deep respect for all of the gurus in her life, in particular Carole Westerman and so many more.

Students can expect a wide range of wisdom that will leave them feeling confident to move deeper into an independent practice as well as guide others along in theirs. Not only will you learn on an intellectual level, but a deeper transformation wil occur on a physical and psychospiritual plane. Be prepared for deep shifts and great expansion.

Be surrounded by a group of teachers who are here to support and uplift you, a space ready to receive you and a program that is unlike any other. All skill levels welcome!

More details will be announced in the next month. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Jackie at 712-490-7705. Again space is limited, so if you are feeling the pull, it may be time to listen.
