GO DEEP YOGA TEACHER TRAINING (YTT) AND ADVANCED YOGA STUDIES:
Chapel Hill/Carrboro’s first yoga teacher training, with Ti Harmony, one of the Triangle’s longest continuously teaching yoga practitioners
A nine-month course toprepare you to teach yoga or just to deepen your practice, aimed at giving you EXPERIENCE and tools to manifest the True you.
“You’ve been walking the ocean’s edge
holding up your robes to keep them dry.
You must dive naked under, and deeper
a thousand times deeper.” -Rumi
Here is what one student said about the training:
I really appreciated this training, and really learned and grew so much, and can only imagine all the work you must do to make it such a great experience for us and to give us so much of your time, love, attention, energy, and self.
This training has completely changed the way I approach yoga, my body, my self, and my life-all for the better. I learned skills that changed my life on and off the mat, and had a safe, supportive, productive environment in which to practice, and process what I was learning, no only about yoga but also about myself. I took this training because I wanted to become an awesome yoga teacher to myself at least, and from there maybe teach others. Through this training I’ve become not only a better yoga teacher for myself and others, but also a better friend, companion, and care-giver for myself…all of which are things that once I improved them for myself easily translated into improving them in my relationships with others. -Katie Ruf
Here is what another student had to say:
My Yoga Teacher Training continues to inform me and positively impact my life 5 years later. The tools I gained have allowed me to be more present, more available to give to others, have more energy and feel physically, emotionally and spiritually more at peace than ever before.
Here is what another student had to say:
One of the very best things about this course is the size of the group. It is awesome from a student’s standpoint because it allows for open discussion, bonding and more detailed direction. It enables you to maintain a safe and creative space for all of us in a very nurturing environment where we could really absorb your teaching.
I would encourage anyone who wants to start really living to take this course, regardless of whether you want to teach or not. You cannot possibly come out the other side the same person with the same eyes. It creates the space in your own soul to evolve and visit unknown places in your heart all with a guiding light of kindness, wisdom and compassion. Once you begin that journey you will never be able to turn back and no matter what you find-good or bad-you will not seek to return to your starting point.
And another one:
This training was so much more than I expected it to be. I came to it expecting to learn how to teach people to bend, stretch, strengthen, and relax. What I got was an intense healing, life-affirming, spiritually-inspiring experience. It shifted – for the better – the way I see the world, the way I treat myself, the way I interact in my relationships; and it left me with a much greater capacity to listen to my inner voice, to see reality for what it is, and to cope with what I see and hear.

And one more:
I would like to express deep gratitude for my teacher, Ti Harmony. This training is like a rebirth process and the sacred space that was held allows true healing to occur. I am filled with deep gratitude for yoga and YTT. The healing and the awakening that has occurred and is continuing to occur is something that I could never put a price on.
