200hr Yoga Alliance Certified cYoga Curriculum
The YTT in a Nutshell
Teacher training at The Lab is unfiltered and I would not have had it any other way. The meditations with Moises, classes with Carmen, hours of adjustments, and the small group of trainees allowed me to develop confidence in my skills as a new cYoga teacher ready to face the world of yogis. It is an environment where I felt comfortable exploring and changing the mental, physical, and emotional aspects of my yoga practice which has changed me as a person. I am forever grateful for the experience.
Teacher Training at the Lab was physically and mentally challenging EVERY DAY. It covers everything from philosophy and meditation to sequencing and hand-on adjustment, I came out of it feeling confident and well prepared to teach and share the magic of Yoga. I am forever grateful to Carmen and Moises for every advice, for all the kwoledge shared, for pushing us forward every step of the way and for helping me grow as a teacher and as a practitioner. Definitely the best decision I ever made!
This training is hands down the best one available in the United States. Carmen and Moises do a stellar job of teaching you how to actually teach a class. It is by far the most in depth experience in regards to three of the most important segments of being a yoga teacher: sequencing isn’t just brushed over, instead they spend multiple hours going over how to sequence a class so you are properly warming up your students; hands-on-adjustments are not just studied from a book perspective, they are put to practice and critiqued until you get them right and are confident in them; and each student is put to the test in their actual teaching skill and given an opportunity to teach in front of other people multiple times through the training so that they can hone their skills and become that much better if a teacher.
This is my second time taking the cYoga teacher training, and I took it a second time because of a few reasons. One, it had been 6 years since the last time I took the training and I knew there was a lot of brushing up I needed to do. Two, I also knew that cYoga had done a lot of evolving since I took the training and there was about twice as much information to memorize. But three, I took it again because there is no better training available. The amount that I learned this time around was equal to or greater than the previous time. I’m forever grateful that this is such a huge part of my life and will be always.
Want to deepen your practice? Be a better teacher? Learn more about yourself? Then you need to train at The Lab.
I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to learn from two great minds and spirits in the form of Carmen and Moises. The cYoga style is rigorous, dynamic, and reveals who YOU are on the mat – and you can expect Carmen and Moises to match that energy. It was also incredibly refreshing to experience the dedication and mindfulness cultivated within students (and teachers!) at The Lab Chicago. If you commit to bringing your full self every damn day, arrive willing to be challenged, and ready to receive, then, well, you’ve set yourself up for a good time.
Teacher training at The Lab far exceeded all my expectations. In the 3.5 weeks I spent with Carmen and Moises, I learned how to design a cohesive and intelligent sequence, teach and adjust each and every pose in the sequence, and understand the anatomy and philosophy behind the yoga I was teaching. Carmen and Moises did an amazing job preparing the course in a progressive way that maximized growth as teachers over a short time frame. Further, both made themselves available to answer any and all questions that we had about anatomy, sequencing, poses, adjustments, philosophy, meditation, and all things yoga in general. Above all else, I feel extremely well prepared to begin my teaching career and would recommend this TT to anyone looking to teach high level yoga.
cYoga teacher training is one of the most challenging and fulfilling experience I’ve been through in my life. The attention and quality of instruction Carmen and Moises provided were felt from day one and throughout the program. The whole package, including meditation, hands-on adjustments, sequencing, and cueing, was all found here. It also transformed my own personal practice, having more breakthroughs at The Lab than anywhere else.
Please do not expect a simply enjoyable, sweet yoga teacher training. Carmen and Moises frequently stressed me out… with sincere devotion and passion, which helped me go through several breakthroughs. The training is structured to find the best version of yourself, through sequencing, adjustments, meditation, presentation and very sharp feed backs, and so on. Especially, if you are feeling stuck in your practice or desiring to improve your teaching skills, this is THE training course to take.
