We invite you to come and take part in Tallapoosa Center for Inner Arts 2013 Yoga Teacher Training, a 200-hour certification program that qualifies students to become registered yoga teachers with the national Yoga Alliance. We are proud of our program and confident you will find it to be a journey of transformation, an opportunity to nourish body-mind-spirit in a supportive environment. Whether you intend to teach or just to use the instruction to deepen your own practice, we hope you will be able to join us.
Part 1 Laying the Foundation
As the name implies, in this part of the training we will begin the transformational journey by emphasizing yoga basics, physically and philosophically. It consists of 90 hours of training over three 3-day weekends:
April 27 - 29 (Saturday through Monday) - 8AM to 7PM
May 25- 27 (Saturday through Monday) - 8AM to 7PM
June 22 - 24 (Saturday through Monday) - 8AM to 7PM
Part 2 9-Day Intensive
The intensive consists of 90 hours of training over a 9-day period and will serve to deepen and refine your personal practice of yoga as well as offer you tools needed to share the gift of yoga with others.
July 20 - 28
(Saturday through Sunday) - 8AM to 7PM each day
During the course of the training you will receive instruction in asana, pranayama, meditation, and chanting. You will learn basics of anatomy and physiology as they relate to the practice of yoga and techniques for avoiding injury. You will learn how to embody the spirit of yoga in your practice, and how to inspire and gently guide others to develop their own inner teacher and to use yoga as a process of exploration. You will delve into yogic philosophy and discover that the beauty of asana is just a physical reflection of the mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of yoga that set it apart from many physical regimens. You will immerse yourself in a process of self-discovery and bond with others who are similarly committed.
The cost, including most training materials (see reading list below for exceptions), is $2195, due by the start of training. If full payment is received by April 16th the cost will be discounted to $2095. Alternately, a two-payment option is available: $1175 payable at the beginning of Part 1 and $1075 payable at the beginning of Part 2. A deposit of $350 will reserve your space. Send your deposit (made payable to Tallapoosa Center) and a brief narrative telling a little about yourself & yoga experience (regular practice for at least one year suggested), your reasons for seeking yoga teacher training, any health issues that might affect your participation, special talents, etc. and mail to Tallapoosa Center, 657 Tyus-Carrollton Rd., Carrollton, GA 30117.

About Our Yoga
The Center is owned and operated by Karen Sifton, MEd, E-RYT 500 and Roger Hornsby, MA, RYT, LMT, CEEMP, long time practitioners of yoga and Tai Chi Chuan. The yoga taught at the center is an eclectic style, informed not only by Karen's study with Joel Kramer and Angela Farmer and the couple's continuing study with Erich Schiffmann, but also by their experience in the arts of Tai Chi and Chi Kung. Their book Energy, a Practical Guide to Personal Achievement, Health, and Transformation defines their approach by describing yoga (and other inner arts) as disciplines that paradoxically help the practitioner attain freedom, by facilitating the release of blockages to energy - in the physical, mental, and spiritual sense. So yoga at the Center is taught in this light, with strong emphasis on breath, relaxation, and cultivation of the stillness necessary for listening to one's inner teacher, the source of our truest knowing.
Yoga is a wonderful gift – one that can truly change your life. Open yourself to the peace and joyful expression of life energy this gift can bring, and then share it with confidence.
