Yoga Teacher Training

Yoga Teacher Training has been a part of studioVIBE for the last 4 years.  We hosted InnerLight Yoga School since 2012 … this year we are excited to continue the tradition with an exciting NEW Yoga Teacher Training Program: Mandala Yoga School!  Many of the teachers from Innerlight Yoga School will be continuing which we are super excited about.  They are excellent at what they do and committed to guiding you on your journey.  MYS has a unique approach to yoga teacher training and is committed to teaching the “art of teaching”. Through our skillful approach to teaching yoga, you will enhance your skills to grow as both a teacher and student. We will provide you with a steady foundation that will encourage you to thrive and explore your fullest potential. The methodology of Mandala Yoga School will help you to teach with steadiness, clarity, ease, and grace. You will be given opportunities to teach the group on all aspects of yoga to deepen your personal understanding, raise your confidence, and move forward on your path as a bodhisattva.

YOGA TEACHER TRAINING is a big step, a personal step, the start of an adventure, a journey into self-discovery, a time to create your mandala! The most important and impactful guru you will ever get to know lies within you. At the heart of The MYS training will be the 8 Limbs of yoga, exploring, understanding, and learning our responsibility as a yogi and as a teacher, guiding others on the path.

Mandala Yoga School will meet you where you are and take you where you want to go! Whether you are looking to be a rockstar teacher or delve deeper into yoga for personal growth, the faculty of Mandala Yoga School will point you in the right direction.

MYS has created a systematic method for “teaching teachers to teach”. Our method works and we will be there by your side during the training and beyond. There are historically a
percentage of people who enter a yoga teacher training not planning on teaching. Some are surprised to discover they do have this desire and gift of sharing yoga.  Through finding your voice in asana, philosophy, and methodology you will deepen your own personal practice and understanding of yoga…it is a life-changing experience you will remember and treasure forever. 

The Yoga Teacher Training Program through Mandala Yoga School is credentialed with The Yoga Alliance and following successful completion of your training you will be able to apply to be an RYT 200, Registered Yoga Teacher at the 200-Hour Level.

If you have already completed a 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training and would like to refine your skills and deepen your understanding of yoga philosophy, asanas, and principles we are offering the full Mandala Yoga School Training for $1499.

Client Spotlight – Meet Shakera Myers

Meet our friend, Shakera Myers…

Tell us about you…where were you born and how did you end up in Cary, NC?

I was born right here in NC. I’ve spent most of my life in NC but also went to school in Philadelphia, PA. I am a graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill and have really developed a network of friends and family here in the Triangle area.  I am now married which is why I chose to stay here. My interests include listening to all types of music, watching movies, shopping, hanging out with my husband, friends and family and of course Yoga!

What brought you to studioVIBE?

I decided to try studioVIBE as I was looking to become a member of a studio specific to my yoga interests. I was previously a member of a gym but was really looking to build on my yoga practice specifically and did not feel that I was getting that from a large group fitness class. studioVIBE is conveniently located. I drove by it for years and decided to give it a try. I’m so glad I did as it has really helped deepen my yoga practice.

How long have you been doing Yoga?

I have been practicing yoga for about 8 years now and it is truly one of my favorite things to do. Yoga has changed not only my body, but my overall physical and mental health.

You had a stroke, how has Yoga helped you in your recovery?

I had a stroke in December of 2014 at the age of 31. This was devastating for my personal practice and what I was able to do while on the road to recovery. However, I did not let what happened to me keep me away from one of my greatest passions, which was to continue my personal practice.
Yoga has helped me in my recovery tremendously. The practice of yoga is not simply about getting into the most “difficult” poses, but accepting what your body can do and allowing your mind to be stronger than your fears or what is perceived as physical limitations. Yoga has helped me regain strength in my physical body (I had to build strength to walk again and even hold a toothbrush!) I continue to get stronger, more flexible and have built even more courage when I practice. Yoga has helped me accept where I am in the present moment, physically and mentally.

What changes have you noticed since coming to the studio?

Since coming to the studio, I have noticed that my passion and drive to do more in my personal practice has become stronger. I am more flexible than I was even before my medical emergency. Although as a result of the stroke, I have trouble with balance, I notice that although it is not perfect, it has gotten better. I may not be able to do every pose or move that I may have conquered or was working towards before what happened, but there are new moves and poses that I am learning and starting over in Yoga has been such a great learning experience for me.

Anything else you would like to share?

I’d like to thank studioVIBE for having a place where people like myself can practice our passion and continue to build and grow. I am grateful for instructors and friends that I have both inside and out of studioVIBE who are supportive, understanding and caring. If i can share any thoughts or takeaways from my experience is that, sometimes things will happen in your life that you are not prepared for physically and mentally but you cannot let that keep you down or away from what drives you inside. Yoga, for me, is more than a photo op or set of beautiful, complex poses… it is a way of life. It keeps my body mobile and my mind sane and I wouldn’t give it up for anything!
