What Makes Westchester Yoga Arts RYT200 Training Unique?
Yoga, asana (the physical movements) was created as a vehicle to reach stillness of mind, to be able to observe emotions instead of being controlled by them. WYoga’s training has advanced teaching methodology and real hands on experience teaching.
WYA’s training also emphasizes physiology in the first module, real concrete teaching practice in the second module and the business of yoga in the third.
- • Study of ancient texts including the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, Bhakti Sutras, Bagavad Gita, and the Hatha Yoga Pradipika.
- • A strong physiology program taught in association with the chakras and asanas. We cover the systems of the body and their direct application to the practice of yoga.
- • How to teach. Unique proprietary teaching tips and instructional tools take teacher from being good to being great.
- • Spiritual and personal growth. The spiritual is very different from the philosophical. The spiritual aspect of yoga is life-changing. It can bring greater awareness and personal freedom. Often the hardest part of the course, it can also be the most rewarding. Learn to apply what you learn on the mat to all aspects of your class. Completion of the training goes hand in hand with the start of personal transformation.
- • Hands on teaching experience with other trainees and in a real yoga class. Student trainees start teaching as of the very first class. Each student develops their own class plan. By the time the end of the program arrives, each trainee has already taught and refined their class. Walk out as a confident graduate, ready to teach.
- • Community service requirement to teach 5 yoga classes to a part of the community that needs it and does not necessarily have access to it.
- • Business of yoga. Entrepreneurs and independent teachers alike will benefit from a complete training program from studio management to fiscal responsibilities and social media.

OUR CLIENTS LOVE US!
This is by far the best yoga studio around!!! The instructors are all friendly and treat you a like a person and take a personal interest in your yoga journey. I've learned so much about and about life in general from each instructor and have built relationships with them as well. When you attend class you are not just a participant, but an actual member of class. They also offer other classes including belly dancing and one of the best Zumba classes around!!! I look forward to continuing my journey with this studio!!! I highly recommend joining!!!
From the moment I walked into the studio I felt at peace. The welcoming staff even stated "welcome home!" What a way to begin my first experience with yoga! I joined that day after my first class: candlelit yoga! So calming and relaxing yet challenging in its own way! After one week of yoga I feel stronger and much more relaxed! I would recommend this to anyone and cannot wait to go tomorrow!!!!
It's a place you can go to without stress. Just relax enjoy the direction of the great teachers and come out feeling like a new person. I want all to know that it has helped me get thru my back surgery and help me move like I did before. Thanks to all the teachers especially Faith Daniels for her great back classes. Lv them
I've been going to WYA since January. It's become my safe haven. Not only have I enjoyed the classes--I take everything from gentle yoga to the more rigorous flow classes--but the studio also just has a lovely energy about it. It's one of those intangible things you can feel when you walk into the lobby. No matter my state when I walk in, my inner state is always vastly improved by the time I leave.
I have an unlimited all class access pass from Westchester Yoga Arts and it is the best. Whenever I have a stressful day or need a change, I am there, signing in a class. I’ve now done classes with all the teachers, and done yoga, zumba and belly dance. It feels good knowing that I can get a spiritual detox through yoga whenever I want to. It is complete mind and body nourishment. Thumbs up.
