Teacher Trainings

The Teacher Training program of A Yoga Life combines embodiment and movement and is meant to change your life as well as give you the tools to change the  lives of your students.  You learn to understand your own experience, body, and wisdom — and then how to guide your students to the same wisdom and experience of themselves.

A Privilege to Teach

Yoga has the potential to change people and the progression of their lives. Yoga is an integrative science that leads people toward their highest truth and exposes them to the potential to live a healthy, fulfilled, and balanced life. As teachers, we stand as examples of these fundamentals. Through study, practice, mindfulness, and devotion, we come to our own understanding of the unity of our body, mind, and spirit. Then, as teachers, we support and encourage our students in discovering their own Truth, their inner wisdom, and the key to unlocking their potential for light and love.

The 200-hour Yoga Alliance Registered Teacher Training Program 

Your training with Adrienne Hutton incorporates a core aspect you will receive nowhere else, the Developmental Movement Patterns as created by Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen.

These Developmental Movement Patterns follow the natural unfolding of all humans’ growth cycles, and the study of these patterns offer us an inside look into how we support our growth and transformation through movement. We learn how to embody the natural cycles of our organic development, and from this, learn to repattern, heal, and transform ourselves.

Students learn how to access these patterns, and then apply them to the yoga practice. This combination of techniques is unique and essential to the full embodiment of yoga and life.

Students in this class are eligible for certification with the Yoga Alliance, and can expect the following:

  1. Readings and homework assignments
  2. Study of the Developmental Movement Patterns and their relationship to yoga asanas
  3. Embodied anatomy and kinesiology
  4. Mindfulness practices to bring out the authentic teaching voice
  5. Covering the art of seeing and sensing
  6. Learning insightful touch and how to cultivate presence
  7. Using our voice to give safe and effective instructions
  8. Sequencing
  9. Discussing yoga philosophy and its influence on modern times
  10. Cultivating compassion and sincerity in the classroom

Our intention with these trainings:

  • To produce highly qualified & skilled professionals
  • To assist you in deepening your understanding & practice of yoga
  • To create a safe & nourishing atmosphere to learn in
  • To Nourish our mindfulness practice & connect to our essential Heart
  • To have fun & invite in our creative, playful nature!

“Yoga means to ‘unite’ — the body, mind, and spirit. In my teacher training, I focus on igniting your soul, guiding you on your inner journey to your spirit. Then we explore ways for you as a teacher to expose students to the full completeness of yoga — total transformation, unity, and reclaiming the essence of our divine nature.”

— Adrienne Hutton 

“Adrienne is a very fine teacher. I had lots and lots of questions for her, and she answered with incredible depth and understanding. I appreciate the teachers whom she has followed for years, and I like the materials and handouts she uses for training. Adrienne created a safe space for her students to explore yoga and dive deep into their practice on a multitude of levels. I thoroughly enjoyed her teacher training program and highly recommend it.
