SoulShine Yoga's Vinyasa Teacher Training is designed
for yogis who desire more depth, skill and inspiration
from their practice as well as for those who want to teach.
"It is such an amazing experience, you will LOVE it... We give you a sequence and educate you on how to teach skillfully and confidently, however...
our training goes much deeper than the poses. We dive into philosophy (8-limbs)(developing your own spirituality),
Ayurveda (holistic healing and being in harmony with nature's rhythms and your body/mind type),
the mythology behind the asana, anatomy: both physical and energetic (chakras), meditation and breathing techniques,
and even a little astrology and sound healing. You will develop a "family"/connectedness with the other trainees and your leads.
It's AWESOME." Martina Gray, SSY Lead Trainer

"There are almost no words to describe how powerful Yoga Teacher Training at SoulShine was. It was a truly a life changing experience. The smaller, intimate setting enabled so much opportunity for a deeper connection between students and instructors. There was a perfect balance between the spiritual aspect of yoga and the more technical side, including proper alignment of poses and the art of sequencing. This experience changed many of the ways I look at life and provided me with valuable tools to create and maintain positive practices in my everyday life. All of this in addition to receiving a certification!" ~Nichole B.
"SSY was the perfect place for me. A smaller more intimate studio made the whole journey feel personal. The range of course material was excellent and Aminy and Martina brought in many experts to help educate us about specific topics. Workshops were varied and interesting." "This was a life changing experience for me. I miss it, now that it's over." ~ G. Verdon
"SoulShine Yoga really encompasses the "spirit of yoga". The training integrates the physical with the philosophical, offering a knowledge base that prepares the trainee to teach from a holistic place. SSY training embodies everything I appreciate in a great teacher - creative asanas, inspirational attitudes and a passion for the spirit of yoga." ~Marissa C.
"SoulShine has been my yoga studio of choice ever since they opened their doors. I had been planning to take a teacher training and was overjoyed when the owners decided they would offer one. As a graduate from the very first SSY TT I feel honored to have been a part of the beginning and feel I received an in depth yoga education that will only get better with time and experience. We had so many options and a variety of excellent guest speakers for no additional cost which upon comparing to other studios made the program offered by SoulShine abundantly superior in quality as well as cost. I only wish I could go back and do it again!" ~K. Aitken
"The atmosphere at SoulShine allowed for each of us to bare our souls and become really connected to each other. This also helped us identify why we were there and what we wanted to come away with from this journey." ~Angie C.
"I highly recommend this program!" ~Toni F.
"SSY is an incredibly loving and supportive community! Not only is it a safe space to practice yoga, but also to heal, transform and grow. As far as TT goes, I always felt so comfortable exploring new areas of knowledge to add to my practice and to life in general. It was a wonderful environment to explore new concepts and share ideas with like-minded souls. ~ Jen B.
"I couldn't imagine a better place to do your training." ~Brittany G.
"I really enjoyed my teacher training experience at Soulshine Yoga. Our lead teachers, Aminy, Martina and Erin were wonderful and the program encompassed all of the facets of a well-rounded program. I recommend it to anyone who is committed and passionate in becoming a yoga teacher. ~Adrienne W.
"SoulShine Yoga Teacher Training is a wonderful program. I'd recommend this experience to anyone with a passion behind enhancing their personal practice and learning to enhance others". ~Kayla S.
"When I signed up for teacher training at SoulShine, I had a feeling it was going to be great based on the studio's high quality and vibe, and on really enjoying, respecting and growing from the fresh style of both Aminy and Martina's teaching. I wanted a teacher training that would be holistic, incorporate many perspectives and ideas, and teach me the foundation for being a solid yoga teacher--- and this is exactly what I got! Martina and Aminy were both incredible teachers. Their passion for yoga, willingness to go out of their way, humility, grace and BEING the teachings, true yogis, leading by example ... this was evident each and every session. Erin was also such a wealth of wisdom and it was a privilege to be her student as well.
Furthermore, I loved all the workshops! What a wonderful experience to have all those extras. The one "theme" of the training that stands out to me is the support and POSITIVITY we all exchanged. And the sequence is SO good! I love it - it includes all the basics and has a lot of flavor to it, what a head start we have!" Courtney S.
