The DDY training is designed to prepare you to be a confident, effective yoga instructor. Each session covers a different unit of study and includes asana, lecture, group discussion, and small-group exercises.
The aim of this program is to create exceptional teachers, Not only will you leave our program prepared to teach, you will also be able to stand in front of a room of people and share openly and authentically. You will gain invaluable insight into your own way of being. At DDY, we believe that the best yoga teachers are those who connect with their students, who speak authentically and from the heart, and who are comfortable in their own skin, regardless of who or what is around them. Through the practices and techniques of Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga, you will learn to identify the obstacles in your life and gain the tools to become your most powerful self, both in and out of the yoga studio.
