$1,699 for a 200-Hour Foundations of Yoga Teacher-Certification Program ($3,750 Value)

Through YogaPoser and American Yoga School, students develop a deep understanding of asana-yoga practices and teaching methods. After completing the first half of the training program, students begin leading classes to accrue real teaching experience. Upon graduation, students obtain the Yoga Alliance 200RYT certification. In addition, students and graduates gain lifetime access to online course material and revisions.

The program begins on July 8 and runs through August 2, with sessions 10 a.m.–5:30 p.m. Monday–Friday, with frequent breaks. This course is physically demanding, but YogaPoser welcomes a wide variety of students. To ensure that this course is appropriate for you, you will be contacted by phone for a brief introductory conversation after redeeming this Groupon.

Under instructor James Brown, all of the teachers at the YogaPoser studio are graduates of the YogaPoser Teacher Training, where they learned how to excel at tailoring their attention and tips to the particular needs of each practitioner, helping students to cultivate self-awareness, stability, and strength during classes offered seven days a week. The studio's schedule of classes includes offerings to help ease beginners into yoga practice, including foundations classes, which steadily equip attendees with the yogic knowledge needed to master an array of standing, twisting, and inverted poses while reciting the Bill of Rights backwards. Students flow through poses in the Total Poser class with instructor's help, or attend the hybrid AssKicker class, which blends yoga, cardio, and plyometrics. Poser Tech workshops taught by senior teacher training faculty, and open to all, deepen students' understanding of a particular type of pose. Classes take place in a Santa Monica studio, rendering sessions relaxing and cozy as up to 24 visitors stretch out on yoga mats (may bring their own or have one provided) and mortgaged floorboards.
