Overview

Joyfully dance your way to teacher certification in this one-and-only, immersion-style Let Your Yoga Dance® Teacher Training – or come just to experience ten glorious days of dance and delight!

Let Your Yoga Dance® (LYYD) is the first chakra-yoga-dance training of its kind. Using fabulous music from around the world, this transformational and compassionate program will teach you to lead dance (or just enjoy your own dance!) with confidence in a supportive, non-competitive environment.

Upon successful completion of the training, you will:

  • Be a certified Let Your Yoga Dance® instructor.
  • Have an extensive list of music resources from which to create your own LYYD classes.
  • Take home a LYYD manual to study and from which to draw ideas.
  • Have access to a tremendous video library of LYYD choreography.
  • Be connected to a large LYYD family of support and encouragement.
  • Have ideas about how to market your LYYD business.

Come with an open mind and heart, and the dance will take care of the rest.

Prior Reading: In preparation for the training please read “Expanding Joy: Let Your Yoga Dance, Embodying Positive Psychology” by Megha Nancy Buttenheim, founder and creator of Let Your Yoga Dance® (available at letyouryogadance.com and amazon.com).

Beginners welcome. No dance or yoga experience is required, though both are helpful. If you can take a brisk walk, have a fair amount of energy, and are ready to experience the dance of your own creativity, you can do this training.
