Three Treasures Yoga Teacher Training Program

Three Treasures Yoga is a Yoga Alliance certified interdisciplinary yoga school. This teacher training course offers a thorough investigation into yoga, enhanced by learning the principles and experiencing Eastern healing modalities. In addition, students are offered the opportunity to have at least one private session with teachers who are certified in Shiatsu, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and other healing modalities. Through this experiential investigation, Three Treasures Yoga facilitates a deeper understanding of yoga in participants by facilitating a deeper investigation of self.
All courses include the teaching of basic yoga principles, including postures (asana), meditation, breathing exercises (pranayama), chanting, and the basics of yoga philosophy and nutrition. Courses have been developed by Massimo Cantara and Molly Cofman; the classes draw upon the traditions and teachings of Hatha yoga, Dynamic yoga, Iyengar yoga, martial arts, healing techniques, body work, and traditional Chinese medicine. Being a dedicated student is the key to successful teaching. While many entering this program go on to be successful teachers, many enter the program to simply deepen their own investigation and experience of yoga.
