 Lighthouse Yoga School is excited to offer our first in-person 200hr JM Vinyasa teacher training since January 2020! Learn to practice and teach our signature yoga class, JM Vinyasa, with clarity and precision. This will be our most immersive and in-depth 200hr training to date, as we live on-site together for 2 weeks at Bodhi Tree Yoga Center in Costa Rica, with Jared McCann (E-RYT500) and Rebecca Causey (E-RYT500, FRCms), who share over 36 years of teaching experience. Our time together will be an immersion in yoga asana, anatomy, philosophy and practice-teaching. We will cultivate a daily asana and meditation practice and study each posture in-depth from the perspective of student and teacher.
Our 200hr JM Vinyasa Teacher Training offers trainees a strong foundation on which to build their teaching skills and personal movement + meditation practice. While this training is designed to support students who have never taught before, we also welcome teachers from other movement backgrounds and yoga lineages who would like to integrate this challenging and dynamic practice into their offerings. Students who complete all elements of this training will be eligible to receive a 200hr certification from Yoga Alliance, or add it to a previous or future 300hr certification to meet the 500-RYT requirement. Students who satisfactorily complete this program will also receive a 200hr certificate from Lighthouse Yoga School + Jared McCann and their contact information and teaching credentials will be added to our list of certified JMY teachers around the world.
200hr Teacher Training Focus:
  1. Refine trainee’s own personal asana practice
  2. Study the asanas (postures) in-depth with daily posture clinics 
  3. Learn and practice how to effectively cue, sequence + teach a JM Vinyasa class
  4. Understand anatomy + physiology as applied to yoga asana, including how to assist and guide students with limitations and injuries
  5. Learn when and how to give safe and effective hands-on adjustments
  6. Incorporate Yoga history and philosophy into your practice and teaching
  7. Develop a Sadhana practice (meditation, mantra, and pranayama)
  8. Learn how to use breath and bandhas to increase stability, strength and awareness
1. You should have a regular, consistent yoga (asana) practice for at least 1 year. 
2. If you have an injury that limits you from practicing certain poses, we still invite you to join us and modify (or skip) poses as necessary. 
3. Come with a willingness to learn and participate to the best of your ability every day. 
To prepare for the training (and meet the 200hr requirements), enrolled students should complete the following homework and self-study for (at least) 40 days prior to the start of training:
1.  Practice JM Vinyasa at least 3 times weekly (on-demand classes taught by Jared + Rebecca provided)
2.  Study cues from the JM Vinyasa Teacher Training Manual and watch video tutorials 
3.  Maintain a daily seated meditation practice (ideally 5-10 minutes in the morning and evening).

2.  Full attendance at all sections of the live training.

*Trainees who do not meet these requirements will not be eligible for Yoga Alliance Certification and will not be added to Lighthouse Yoga School’s official list of JM Vinyasa teachers. Trainees who do not plan to seek certification are absolutely welcome but are still expected to attend and participate in all aspects of the training, including teaching practice.
