Our SOYA Student Spotlight! Nathan Fadear

200YTT and oh so close 300YTT graduate, Nathan Fadear is doing such amazing work sharing the teachings with the next generation. One of the MOST important things we can be doing right now! Nathan is an extremely talented dance choreographer and brilliantly authentic yoga teacher who has such gifts to give to those who are lucky enough to be in reach of him. He has spent this summer working with the kids of our next generation and is doing amazing things with them! Working in 15 different studios and touching the lives of over 1,000 students! Warms my heart to see how beautiful the lifestyle of yoga can impact not only our teachers, but all the lives we have the ability to touch in so many ways. So happy you're following your Dharma Nathan!

"It’s been a crazy few months with a lot of energy to digest but wow, how rewarding! Today my 12-15 year olds asked if they could start dance class with Dirga breath and Anuloma Viloma!! What a win!!! ~ Nathan

SOYA's 200hr Yoga Teacher Training

🕉️Integrate
Become firmly grounded in daily practice of kriya, asana, pranayama, and meditation. Every day is filled with traditional yoga practices as you learn to take your yoga off the mat and into your every day life. Ongoing mentorship support and a community of colleagues for life.

🕉️Apply
Start practice teaching on day one in a safe and supportive setting. Create a series of lesson plans that suit your style and students. Your teaching practicum will prepare you to immediately start teaching upon graduation, with on-going support from SOYA faculty.

A lot of work, a lot of love, a lot of grace and what beautiful graduates! Chloé and I could not be prouder of these beautiful souls who spent the last few months studying hard online and ending in an intense immersion together taking exams and embracing their teachings.

*Due to the most recent elevation in COVID-19 and the new Delta variant, we want to assure you we will be following all precautions and protocols necessary to maintain your safety and that of others with all of our Yoga Teacher Training Programs.

The 200 hour Immersion training will still be taking place in September as planned. If the immersion style does not work out for you, we are offering a Hybrid option, which is a mix between online training and a shorter immersion time together. This Hybrid training will begin in October with the online portion, concluding in February with an incredible one-week immersion amidst the jungles and waterfalls of Costa Rica. If for some reason there is an issue with travel to Costa Rica, the registered students will determine as a group a better timeframe and optional location if necessary for us to gather together for the immersion portion of the training. This flexibility will allow for the completion of the training for all.

For those with interest in the 300 hour Immersion training, this is still planned to be held in two separate modules; November 2021 and May 2022. In the event we are unable to hold this training as an Immersion due to COVID-19, an online format will also be offered beginning in January. Please check in and stay tuned for further information on these opportunities.

We are grateful that Yoga Alliance has been able to adapt to the challenges so that students can continue to safely train to be certified yoga teachers. It is because of them we have been able to offer you these ongoing programs in the 200 hour Foundation training and the 300 hour Advanced Upgrade to RYT500. SOYA will continue to offer yoga teacher training the Online format, Immersion, and Hybrid combination to make our trainings as accessible and safe as possible for everyone.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please reach out to Chloe at [email protected] or Terri at [email protected]

We look forward to sharing these magnificent teachings with you!

Blessings and love,
Terri and Chloe

This book changed my life, as did my beautiful friend and Guru, through her humble teachings 🙏🏻💕. My wish for all is that it falls into your hands when you are ready.

This June we are celebrating 5 years since Letters From the Yoga Masters was released!! Used often in our teacher training studies, this is an invaluable resource for sincere seekers of yogic wisdom. Please join us in congratulating Mugs on this anniversary 🎉🎈🕉️🙏📿

Are you contemplating a 200YTT or a 300YTT? This is a life changing decision, whether you plan to teach or immerse yourself in your practice taking it to a deeper level. Ask the questions? Meet the trainer/s. Do you have a connection? Ask to review the curriculum. Speak with previous grads. Then and only then, close your eyes and let your heart guide you 💕

Like dipping cloth into dye, each time we enter the practices of yoga we are changed by the process. The process deepens each time we return.

This is one reason why both students and faculty love immersion style trainings. They are a wonderful opportunity to be fully bathed in the practices. Join us for a 200hr (16 days) or 300hr immersion (2 x 12 day modules) yoga teacher training where you dive deep into an ashram-like experience each day we are together. https://www.soyayoga.com/

We also welcome participating in a training as a retreat (choose what to join for) or as a refresh and reboot for your previous training. Check out the upcoming locations:

Yoga & Cultural Misappropriation « ICYER

This wonderful new ebook can help you understand and answer any questions you may have about Yoga & Cultural Misappropriation. If you value teaching yoga in a way that honors it’s roots, its a must read for teachers and is only 9 Euros, that’s barely 11.00 US.

This e-book authored by Yogacharya Dr Ananda Balayogi Bhavanani, Yogasadhaki Malini and Yogacharini Padma provides a road map towards manifesting culturally appropriate yoga in modern times. Yoga without its cultural context, is no longer yoga and hence we must be mindful of the necessity to retain....

Love this! Find your internal compass.

To the North within you,
may you express the wisdom of your true self.
To the West within you,
may you be reborn with every season.
To the South within you,
may you hear the counsel of your heart.
To the East within you,
may you be blessed with illumination.
To all Above that is within you,
may you be guided by angels and divinity.
To all Below that is within you,
may you discover the blessing of your shadow.
To the Spirit within you,
may you find your way home.

Often times we wonder if we are on the correct path, if we are doing the right thing, if we are truly following our Dharma. I received a message this morning from someone special in my life who has had a dream to learn more about yoga and in turn help others. She has been so busy nurturing her own "Disease to Please" so much so, she forgot to take care of herself.

To see others open their hearts to this path and way of life is truly why I love so much what I do. The message below is what I received from her this morning. Love her so much!

"Good Morning beautiful lady!! I have to tell you that I truly believe God put you in my life on Wednesday because I wasn’t listening to what my family was telling me, the signs He was dropping on me like a brick wall and most importantly what I knew myself. I woke up this morning at 5am, an hour earlier than I usually had to drag myself out of bed, full of energy. I’ve cleared out my workplace so it is now back to being my Asian room filled with things that bring me joy and an easel that is in the center with a canvas that has remained blank for way to long. That will change soon. I took Piper for a walk and actually saw the beautiful colors of the sunrise, heard the birds starting their day, felt the mist of the sprinklers in the lawns and inhaled the peacefulness of the morning. Instead of trying to get the walk over as quickly as possible to check of the list while planning all I had to squeeze in between breaks for the day. For the first time in a very long time I was present in my own life. Thank for being that light that finally broke through to me, to be able to take a deep breath, close my eyes and jump. To do what I knew I needed to do to start living again and not just existing. Love ya lady!!!"
