A MAP TO SELF
Train in-person in Baltimore, MD
Welcome to Arrow Yoga's In Person 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training. We are proud and devoted practitioners of this ancient system and serve as stewards, transmitting the knowledge that has been passed on to us, with utmost reverence.
Our interest in guiding a 200 hour is not just in providing the knowledge of yoga, but to give you access to it's lived experience. Through more than 16 + weeks, you will be in an immersive and rigorous study of yoga, to learn how to lead the more modern approach of the physical based practices, while steeping yourself into research of its historic origins.
As we share our interpretations of yoga, we are also dedicated to honoring yoga's ancient practitioners, and the literature they left for us to reference.
This program isn't just about learning how to teach, but more so, learning how to practice.
You will walk away learning how to facilitate a vinyasa & restorative physical yoga class, while also learning how to lead traditional techniques for pranayama, and meditation.
Beyond teaching, we emphasize self study and practice as a guiding principle to our studentship and our personal growth. Join us if you are ready to steep yourself into an in depth study of your yoga, and you.

"I feel like I have received the most holistic version of YTT available - it was spiritual, physical, emotional, mental ... POWERFUL. I would recommend this training to anyone. I love being held to a high level in trainings, because it makes me feel like I am getting the most out of my time and investment. You exceeded expectations."
The heart & essence of the training
Throughout the course of this training you will learn the fundamentals of your asana practice, aim inwards through meditation and activate your authentic power through self study.Your training will be broken down into 8 modules (& intensive weekends), with each module inspired by one of the 7 chakras, plus an additional module focused on assimilating all of the knowledge learned and it’s application.
The chakra system is an ancient architectural blueprint for understanding the energetics of mind-body-spirit and will serve as a symbolic and organizational component to the design of our training. Each weekend will also correspond with each one of the 8 limbs of yoga as described in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.
This 8 weekend program is a comprehensive approach to becoming a well informed student of yoga. We value presenting the course material of ancient yogic principles through our unique modern translation. You will not only learn the art and science of this practice from a historical context, but also be able to interpret it through a language that is relevant to your daily life and practice.
Educational workshops, conversation, and reading assignments will coincide with the implementation and application of what is studied through repetition of practice teaching. It is through the development of your own personal practice that you will begin to share yoga, as a teacher.
Learn how to build essentially any yoga class by learning the essential components of each asana. We will breakdown a standard vinyasa style class through out the course of our training, but will be integrating from many different styles and lineages
Understand the major systems of the body and how yoga asana can benefit your health from a chemical level
Understand the history of Asana and identify its intended use according to ancient texts
Learn to identify the fundamentals of a stable asana practice, one that is built to last
Learn to sequence a yoga practice from a subtle energetic and physical perspective
Appreciate the wisdom of your body, learn to listen to it and respect it whole heartedly
Learn embodiment practices beyond the asana
Dr. Ariel Ross of PT will be supporting you and educating you on your physically based practice

WHAT IF I MISS A SESSION?
Students are allowed to miss up to 1 full intensive weekend. Although this is not ideal, and we prefer students to be in all sessions, we do offer flexibility since all classes are recorded.
ONLINE VS IN-PERSON
Online registration is 100% online. Students can participate from anywhere in the world.
In-person training will be held at the Sedona House in Baltimore, MD.
All weekend sessions are held in person. Wednesday sessions will be held virtually for all students.
IF I'M IN BMORE, CAN I DO IN PERSON PART OF THE TIME?
We ask that if you register for in person training, you attend all in person training hours. That is, all intensive weekends. If you are unable to make an in person session, you can participate online, however, it is not encouraged.
HOW DO I LEARN MORE ABOUT THE SCHEDULE/HOW TO PREPARE FOR TRAINING?
Once registered you will receive access to your student training portal. In there is all of the information you'll need to access zoom links, resources, props and books required etc;
HOW LONG DO WE HAVE ACCESS TO THE RECORDINGS FOR TRAINING?

WHERE DO WE GO TO ACCESS ASSIGNMENTS/ RECORDINGS?
All curriculum will be accessed through Thinkific and can be found through the training portal.
HOW MUCH TIME OUTSIDE OF TRAINING HOURS DOES THIS REQUIRE?
Outside of live training hours, there will be a maximum of two to four hours of work to do on your own timing within each module. This includes watching recorded videos that are included within the 200 hour model, and then your own self practice and self study. (1 asana class, and 1 meditation practice on your own each module minimum)
WILL I STILL BE ABLE TO CULTIVATE COMMUNITY IF I'M ONLINE?
We will actively curate the experience so that each student online interacts with students in person and visa versa. We will work hard to make sure this learning experience is beneficial for all by using the most simple yet seamless technology to ensure everyone can see one another in the space, and can communicate clearly and effectively.
DO I NEED TO BE AN ADVANCED PRACTITIONER IN ORDER TO JOIN?
NO! Students come to learn and advance their practice exactly as they are. All are welcome. We ask that you have been practicing yoga for at least a year and are deeply committed to this process of learning and growing.
Taking yoga outside the studio to communities underrepresented in a typical yoga class is key to creating a diverse range of teaching voices – so all students can feel represented in the classroom.
