Advanced Yoga Study

Universal 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training

In Partnership with LIFESOURCE YOGA

YACEP, Yoga Alliance, Continuing Education ProviderLifesource Yoga and Bodyworks is partnering with Diane Speer to offer multiple opportunities to participate in Advanced Yoga Study. The program will be launched in October of 2019 and is set up in Modules of monthly weekend immersions. You can sign up to matriculate towards becoming a certified 200-hour yoga teacher, participate per module for deeper yoga education or join in any of the modules for continuing education credits.

Lifesource Yoga & Bodyworks has been serving the greater Akron area with group and private yoga instruction since 2008 and has offered a variety of wellness services since 2011. We take great pride in offering a unique and comfortable alternative for those seeking top-quality instruction within a focused and compassionate culture. The studio is conveniently located but purposefully tucked away in the quiet Fairlawn Marketplace plaza in Fairlawn.

Lifesource is a locally owned small business (not a franchise or corporate entity) operating within a fair exchange and fair profit business model. Daily operations and management are centered around practices which encourage human beings to live more peaceful, harmonious, and balanced lives within a framework of overall ecological and environmental sustainability.

 Through this Advanced Study Program, our goal is to allow all participants to experience the truly authentic original teachings of the art, philosophy, and science of yoga that encompasses an extensive system of internal practices, techniques, and methodology rooted in a principled philosophy for healthy lifestyle, profound personal development, and self-fulfillment.

The course offers multiple opportunities to delve into the study of yoga inclusive of all of its facets.

Whether you would like to study the effects of a yoga practice on the body and mind, delve into the ritual and routine beyond the asana, or know more about the philosophy and history of yoga, there is a module that can deepen your practice. And, when you put all of the modules together, you are on track to complete our 200 Hour Teacher Training Program. But that is by no means necessary to participate in the program modules. We encourage you to pick and choose the subject, your study interests, your objectives and your practice. 

For those of you who know you would like to become a certified yoga teacher, these modules can serve as your path. Once you have completed all the requirements you will be well qualified as a 200hr Yoga Teacher and be able to register as a RYT200hr Yoga Alliance Certified Teacher.
