Teacher Training FAQ’s
What is Tadasana.Yoga Teacher Training?
Nearly 7 years ago I purchased Tadasana.Yoga in Park City. I had practiced yoga for over a dozen years, and as an experienced marketer I embraced the stewardship of the business, but I was not a yoga teacher. In order to truly walk my own talk, I immediately took a 200-hour teacher training program with Baron Baptiste. At his training, I saw immediately what the yoga teachers I knew were talking about: YTT is so much more than teaching. When I began to create a teacher training program here at Tadasana.Yoga, I sought the most experience trainers, including some who had worked extensively with Baptiste, to help craft our training program. You might be surprised to learn that the first step in creating a teacher training program is not to draft a syllabus, but instead, to examine what we stood for as a studio. Very quickly, our mission took shape: “to create happy communities, one student at a time.” It’s from this mission that our teacher training grows.
Who should do yoga teacher training?
The only people who should do yoga teacher training are those who want to see significant growth as leaders. Many people take training thinking they might like to teach some day but many have no intention of teaching. Many students join us to explore new ways to think and see the world and ultimately open doors to new directions in their lives. If you would like to join the Tadasana.Yoga teaching staff, this is a great way to do it. If you aren’t interested in teaching, just come and change your life.
Why should I train with Tadasana.Yoga?
Yoga has become such a mainstream practice that yoga teacher training programs are found at nearly every studio. The Yoga Alliance is a national organization that provides a certification structure to ensure consistency and quality across yoga training programs. Tadasana.Yoga and most other training programs are certified by this organization. But at the end of the day, you want a program with extremely strong leaders, and a clear vision for your success as a student. Tadasana.Yoga’s trainers are highly experienced in the teaching of teachers. We know the training methodologies that will help you progress rapidly in our 200 hours together. We also have the skill to adjust the trainings to nature of each student and student group. Our goal is to ensure you see rapid and effective progress in the creation of a new you.

Who teaches the training?
We have a team of highly-experienced yogis serving as your guides during your 200-hour training. The lead facilitator is Tina Adkinson, Tadasana.Yoga Park City’s studio manager, a former manager at the Baptiste Institute, and an E-RYT-certified trainer. Tina will be supported by Kelley Sandahl and a team of assistants who are all well-trained and respected yogis and who are here to ensure you have a top-quality experience.
What’s involved in a training?
We meet for 5 weekends. Each weekend you will be engaged in one of these modalities: practice, inquiry, pose laboratory, meditation, anatomy, and practice teaching. And woven in and among those modalities are hours of gems – connections with your fellow students, a deeper connection to your physical practice, a new appreciation for your body, the challenges of teaching, and so much more. You will have some reading materials to help you go deeper, and we even take our classroom out into the woods for a hike every Saturday morning, followed by meditation.
Do I have to be an experienced yogi to take the training?
Absolutely not. Many of our teacher training participants are very new to yoga.
Who can I speak to if I have questions?
