BLY YogaGuide Apprentice Program

Become more than a yoga teacher: learn the ways of the YogaGuide

In this ongoing apprenticeship, you become part of a dynamic team of apprentices learning how to tailor small group classes to the people they are for in ways that elevate and transform each client involved. Learn how to adapt on the fly for your students' needs and teach the class they need in that moment. Learn how to spot areas of resistance and how to introduce new experiences in ways that have your students doing thing they didn't think they could in mind blowingly little time.

Requirements for application: a month of weekly Small Group Healing Yoga Practices with Christine, application and interview.

Please go to and fill out the online application before paying for the course.

This is not an RYT program and can be taken with or without the RYT designation.

This is a true apprenticeship and relies on your attendance at small group healing yoga practices at least once a week with Christine, attendance at meetings and completion of assignments from research and reading to actively teaching other apprentices and sometimes teachers. There is no absolute curriculum and your assignments will be tailored to you. You are likely to be asked to teach before you feel ready.... because this is how you get ready. Don't worry - you'll be teaching small, 15 minute classes, cleared by me to other apprentices with tons of support.

You commit to a minimum of one class per week (average) at this studio, 15 minutes of practice most other days a week, a 3 hour meeting once a month and new this Fall, a private session each month to address what you are integrating in your own practice.

You commit to 6 months at a time and become eligible to teach at the studio after a minimum of 6 months.

Deepen your practice, deepen your connection, deepen your understanding of all that yoga has to offer. Learn the evidence based practices that lead to deep integrity, groundedness, creativity and boundless energy.

I share the most effective tools I've found for focus, balance, strength and stress reduction in classes designed to give you the tools you need to act from your most authentic, healthy self, even in the most stressful situations.

I am trained in Yin, Restorative, Ashtanga, Iyengar, Raja and am Core Strength Vinyasa and Yoga Shred influenced and inspired - all styles of Hatha Yoga. These "flavors" influence my personal practice and the practice that I share with you. My previous life as a paramedic allows an intimate understanding of the anatomy and physiology that guides every class, pose, technique that I share with you.

You don't have to be flexible - or anything else - to do yoga: yoga helps you become those things.
