Teacher Training

Natalie Buchi , E-RYT500 is the studio owner at Mindful & Embodied and has been teaching Yoga since 2005 and training future practitioners to become teachers since 2010.  Natalie is able to provide continuing education credits as well as certify future Yoga teachers at the 200 and 500 hour levels recognized by the Yoga Alliance.  She does offer a 300 hour training program for instructors who already hold a 200 hour certification.

The program is unique and different than a lot of programs in that it is a small setting which allows for a more intimate connection between the trainees and the teacher.  Natalie pays close attention to each of the participants and their individual needs and prepares them to not only be great teachers but to also begin their own journey to liberating themselves from physical, mental and emotional tangles While we study in great detail many facets of Yoga and how to teach it, we also have the opportunity to study and transform ourselves. How the training goes is unique to the group. 

Natalie carefully considers her needs as well as the students who want to learn from her to make for a very raw and transformative process.  Scheduling will be determined by needs and availability and will require and include some degree of flexibility and sacrifice on each participants part. Since students will be coming from different backgrounds and training, Natalie’s training can also be a great addition or supplementation to any prior education as she dives deeply into all styles and aspects of Yoga, which she has practiced and studied in great detail.

This training is beneficial to those committed to becoming excellent Yoga teachers as well as those who might not want to teach but are interested in learning about Yoga and how the tools can be used in improving daily life.

The body and mind have two different and very important intelligence systems. We need to connect with our true selves and learn how to deal with our own hang-ups and obtrusive thoughts as much as we need to keep our physical bodies in good working order.  In this training, we study the physical, mental, spiritual & emotional benefits which are finally being recognized as something that can heal many injuries and traumas, as well as illness, depression, anxiety and a myriad of other things.

This training focuses on various approved subjects with emphasis on what the accepted applicants are interested in learning so they receive the benefits of the practice in a way that applies to their lives and the niche they want to speak to as teachers.  There is no discrimination, just a commitment to those interested in dedicating their time, honoring the process and embracing a new practice so if they choose, the can teach their knowledge to others with humility.  

This is not just a training.  It is a lifestyle and is worth investing in!  Personal practice and education are the places to start.  Practice what you teach and teach what you practice. Natalie will introduce you to many styles of Yoga and skillfully lead you through each and every facet of the knowledge she has gained on her path.

If you are seriously interested in transforming your life, finding your strength, power, and gaining a skill in a trade that will help not only the participants themselves but people they choose to teach for a lifetime, call Natalie to reserve your spot!  We have so much fun!  See below the video for more info on scheduling and pricing.
