Pittsburgh Classical Yoga 200 HR Teacher Training
For those yoga students looking to take it up a notch–whether you want to get deeper into your personal practice or become a yoga teacher–Lynn Rescigno offers a 200 HR teacher training at Bend Yoga that will allow you explore.
Lynn’s 200 HR Classical Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training is based on her knowledge of Jivamukti, Ashtanga, Viniyoga, and Iyengar yoga. She teaches her students: how to conduct a class with proper pacing; pronunciation of Sanskrit; synchronization of breath and movement; and an economical way of verbally correcting poses based on what is observed. Students will also explore the basic aspects of yoga philosophy, anatomy, safe hands on adjustments, pranayama, and mantra.
A testimonial or two…
” Lynn presents the information in a fun, interactive manner. Each weekend had a themed lesson utilizing yoga practice with classroom lessons for a combination of knowledge and practical uses. She provided anecdotes and stories throughout the classes to aid in the learning process, and her knowledge and dedication to yoga surpasses her peers and makes her one of the best instructors in Pittsburgh.” ~ Lauren Shaffer , TT Class of 2013
“Lynn’s knowledge of anatomy, meditation, maximizing a Jivamukti and Ashtanga practice, and yoga philosophy is second-to-none in the Pittsburgh area. Every time, I leave Lynn’s classes I know more about my own body and personal yoga practice than I did when I walked in the door. Her attention to detail and care for students is evident during one of her classes as she knows everyone’s name as well as any particular injuries or physical issues. Beyond that, she sees the potential of every student , from beginner to expert, to better their practice. “
