FAQs

  • Practice teaching: We spend time every day practicing teaching. We practice in groups and you receive positive live feedback from your leaders. Our method allows you to instantly incorporate feedback while you practice. We emphasize your natural strengths by identifying them with you so that you maintain your unique qualities and bring those to your students.
  • Synchronized breath: Vinyasa flow is to link breath with movement. We teach you which breaths (inhales and exhales) go with each posture so your classes will flow and your students will have that, “It’s over already?!” feeling.
  • Relaxed Schedule: We maximize our time together and offer frequent breaks so the learning flows just like our yoga classes. We know training can be physically and mentally demanding so we support you so you don’t feel pressured. We always end on time so you get a full night of rest, refreshed for the next day!

Testimonials

I recently had the privilege to be among the First group of Teacher Trainees to be certified through Glow Yoga School. Jennifer Guthrie - Teacher.. Owner..Mentor..Guide..and Inspiration of the 200 hours held our hands as she taught us what is really means to BE a yoga instructor. We of course learned the breakdown and positioning of each pose, the sequence, how to assist others and what to look for and how to listen to our class. But more importantly... We learned first how to be our true self from the inside. Jennifer gently guided each of us to open up and dig deep within to find love. Love for ourselves first so we can be loving to others. We learned what it means to be Authentic! The first step in becoming a yoga instructor.


I'm grateful for the 200 hours spent with my super awesome group; the trainees, Jennifer, Drew and all the teachers who attended and shared their expertise. I'm especially grateful that I took a Hugh scary step, to do that digging, to see that each of us hold inside .....Fireworks!!! That we each have something unique to share, something special to give. To just...BE.

Donna Holmes

Certified Yoga Instructor, Boom!

I took level 1 training 100 hours, at Glow yoga March 2015. I was pretty apprehensive about what to expect from the training I really had no intention of teaching I just wanted to learn more about yoga and maybe find a little direction for my life After doing mental health work for almost 20 years I needed some inspiration. The training consisted of classroom instruction, yoga practice, meditation, group sessions, journaling and practice teaching. It was definitely the hardest physical challenge of my life I learned so much from my peers in the training about willingness to be open and vulnerable, to look at those things that were stumbling blocks and to allow healing into our lives. It was an amazing experience. Through all the practice teaching we learned how to sequence and teach a yoga class. I also had the pleasure of taking level 1 training with my mom which was a good experience for both of us. Training can give you some direction and confidence in your ability to teach a yoga class I didn't plan on teaching but am teaching two classes at the Y. I highly recommend teacher training for those who want to teach and those looking for direction and inspiration. You'll get inspired and learn how to teach.

Julie Smith

Glow Yoga Teacher Training was the perfect fit for me. I felt confident teaching the baptiste sequence after the first weekend of training. I also loved all the guests teachers who came throughout the training. I was able to take away new teaching styles, philosophies on life, and I just left the training a better and more whole person.

Lindsay Overton Rainey

Glow Yoga's teacher training was a great experience for me. I now have the ability and confidence to teach yoga to a variety of groups. They incorporated different teaching styles into the program, which helped me find my own style. Teacher training has positively changed my life in so many ways. My relationship with friends, family, and everyone I come in contact with has changed for the better. And the new friends I've made during my training are the greatest blessing. This journey has opened doors for me already. And I can't wait to see what the future has in store for me.

Jacki East

My advice to anyone considering teacher training is the same as that given to me. If you are on the fence, DO IT!


Glow teacher training prepared me to teach even though I still don't plan to teach very much. The biggest reason for recommending it however, is that for me it changed the way I look at personal relationships and interaction with people. It taught me I could rely on acceptance, compassion, and trust when dealing with others instead of analysis and self interest. Just as important to me are the lasting friendships I made with other trainees. Going through the training together created strong bonds that will last. As set in my ways as I was, if it worked for me it will work for anybody!

Warren Adam

I had thought about taking yoga teacher training. When Jennifer decided to lead her first training, I decided to sign up for it. I was delighted my daughter, Julie Smith, was with me during the first hundred hours. At my age, I said my brain was mush at trying to remember the sequence. Fellow class members were supportive and a lot of sharing was done. We found that most of us are broken in some way. We kept practicing, meditating, and journaling through long days. Our local leaders and guest leaders pushed us on. I decided after the first hundred hours that since I had come that far I would continue. I was glad I did. It was a goal I needed to obtain at this time in my life. I learned so much. Sometimes we just have to say it just is and accept that it just is and not question why or why me. Now, I really do want to teach yoga. It is amazing that once you go through the training, you can teach when at first you could not and wondered if you ever could. We are fortunate to have such dedicated leaders here at Glow and that we could have the training here.
