2021-22 Joyflow Yoga Teacher Training

Joyflow Yoga 200 Hour Teacher Training has been accredited by the Yoga Alliance since 2001 and has certified 22 classes of teachers. It was the first registered training in Mississippi and has inspired new teachers all over the Southeast.

Joyflow Yoga is not currently doing a teacher training. Here is the information about the training, in general. If you would like to participate in a future training, please contact me. I hope to offer this again in the future. Meanwhile I will be offering frequent workshops, many which also offer Continuing Ed for teachers.

The Joyflow training is unique in that it reflects the 30+ year background of Debi Lewis's experience in a variety of styles and traditions. Her teaching style is playful, nurturing and generous in its scope. She strives to cultivate confidence and self-awareness in all those she mentors.

Some participants have a strong desire to teach and some are interested in a deep dive into a personal yoga experience. Many students have taken the experience of this training and have merged it with their profession.

Requirements: Emotional and spiritual maturity. At least 2 years in any style of yoga or spiritual practice. General knowledge of alignment in the basic poses.

Location: Most or all of the program will be offered via zoom. You will need a computer or smart phone, internet, quiet space to practice and join discussions, a yoga mat and basic props. The book list and manual will be supplied upon registration. All sessions will be recorded and sent to you; this is helpful if you have to miss and make the time up.

Wednesday Evenings: 7:00-9:00pm, from Nov.10th - Feb.23rd

8 Weekends:

1. Nov 5-7

2. Nov 19-21

The Practicum consists of practice teaching classes. I will observe at least two of them and give feedback. A note of clarity: once you have completed all requirements and fulfilled a level of basic competence, you will be receiving Certification through Joyflow Yoga and will then be able to apply to Yoga Alliance 200 Hour Registry, if you desire, thus becoming a registered RYT200 yoga teacher.
