AMSTERDAM, NY, – Alpin Haus Fitness Center has announced that locally-based yoga instructor Jennilee Toner will offer her acclaimed Hot Warrior Yoga Teacher Training at its 800-square foot yoga studio in Amsterdam, NY.
The 200-hour, six weekend course is designed for individuals who are interested in becoming a yoga instructor or would like to learn more about the practice of yoga. Classes begin on Thursday, February 9 and will continue over the course of one four-day weekend per month through July 2017.
The comprehensive course will teach students about Hot Hatha and Hot Vinyasa yoga practices, as well as more than 50 Hot Warrior Yoga posture practices. Toner will teach students about the history and philosophy of yoga, the language and myths of the postures, and techniques for on- and off-the-mat injury prevention.
“We are thrilled to offer this experience to members and non-members of the Alpin Haus Fitness Center,” said Andy Heck, president of Alpin Haus. “In recent years, the demand for yoga has soared, with many people, including athletes, recognizing the tremendous benefits that yoga provides for the human body, mind and spirit. Jennilee will train yogis to go out and fill that demand as skilled teachers that bring their knowledge and breadth of understanding to the yoga participant.”
Toner is an acclaimed yoga instructor, and is the author of The Perfect Chaturanga: A Comprehensive Guide to the Human Body Through the Practice of Vinyasa Yoga. She has been practicing hatha and vinyasa yoga for more than 20 years, and began leading teacher training courses in 2010.
“I am excited to bring my teacher training to the Alpin Haus Fitness Center community,” said Toner. “It was such an honor to consult on the construction of the beautiful yoga room a few years ago and it is a pleasure to be teaching fitness and yoga classes there now. Teaching yoga history, philosophy, anatomy, sequencing, alignment and assisting is one of the best jobs in the world, and I am so glad to do it at Alpin Haus.”
Tuition for the course is $2,500 for Alpin Haus Fitness Center members; and $2,700 for non-members. For more information about Hot Warrior Yoga Teacher Training at Alpin Haus Fitness Center, please visit www.alpinhausfitnesscenter.com.
