300 Hour Mandala Yoga Teacher Training, School of Embodied Poetry

Welcome to Mandala 300 Hour! The School of Embodied Poetry's Advanced Yoga Teacher Training At Ananda Shala With Founder Shannon Paige, ERYT 500, Registered with Yoga Alliance "…Be more than a good teacher. Be more than a great teacher. Be an irreplaceable teacher.” – Rod Stryker.

My Goal is help YOU become that inspired and irreplaceable teacher. You will leave this program confident in YOUR knowledge, methodology and original content..

To meet that aim, I have created an exceptional, inspired and evolutionary teacher’s study. It marries cutting-edge science, biomechanics, and wise psychology with ancient wisdom traditions of yoga, mythology, and mysticism. The result is a progression of modules that builds your knowledge, leverages your authentic gifts, and builds your authentic voice.

As a Mandala of study, the program expands skills intelligently, as it maps and layers the most relevant and creative directions of yoga teaching skills.
