TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAM: 200-HOUR LEVEL

We do not currently have a teacher training scheduled. Please join our
email list to be among the first to know when the next training is happening.

The Shiva Shakti Teacher Training Program will give you the tools, confidence, and knowledge to teach a high impact, inspiring power vinyasa yoga class in the tradition of Baptiste Power Yoga. Led by Brandon Compagnone, a master Baptiste Teacher with over a decade of experience in the classroom, you will systematically and intelligently approach teaching as an art. Through this mentally, physically and emotionally challenging process, you will learn the fundamental principles of teaching that go beyond yoga postures and transform lives.

The aim of this program is to produce exceptional teachers. The genius of an exceptional teacher comes from their way of being, not just their body of knowledge. We believe at Shiva Shakti that the teacher who truly connects with their students has the ability to speak authentically from personal experience.  Through hard work, open communication and self-inquiry, you will learn how to speak from the heart no matter who is in front of you.

We invite you to take this next step towards becoming an exceptional teacher.
