200 Hour yoga teacher training
Inhale Thrive 200HR Teacher Training at Bexley Yoga
To be a yoga teacher is to be a life-long learner. To be a yoga teacher is to be a role model for the people in your life. To be a yoga teacher is to be a leader in your community.
Yoga Teacher Training is an opportunity to dive deep into your own experience of yoga practice. In this exploration you will learn about your unique alignment in yoga postures, the limitations holding you back from showing up fully in your life, and practices and techniques to help you reach your full potential as a yoga practitioner and as a participant in daily life.
Beyond personal exploration, you’ll learn about anatomy and biomechanics to help you better understand how to teach people safe and beneficial movement patterns, techniques to confidently guide students through a yoga practice, and the underlying philosophical foundations of yoga and how such concepts inform modern lifestyles.
Most importantly, as a teacher trainee, you’ll be part of a supportive community dedicated to learning in a safe, professional, and light-hearted environment.
There are many reasons why someone might want to become a yoga teacher. Perhaps you want to share your love of yoga because this practice has had a profound impact in your own life. Maybe you’re not interested in teaching at all but you love yoga and you want to know more. Or maybe you’ve been a long-time practitioner and want to take your yoga practice to the next level by stepping into your power as a leader and teacher in your own community.
Whether you want to teach or not, teacher training is the right space for you if you’re an avid learner, enjoy being in community, and have a deep love and respect for the practice of yoga.
Inhale Thrive’s 200HR Teacher Training goes above and beyond a typical Teacher Training program. The combined experience of your lead trainers will provide you with a vast trove of tried-and-true practical techniques to integrate into your own teaching style. Not only have your trainers practiced yoga for a long time, they have worked with fellow yoga teachers for years.
In this particular program emphasis will be placed on applying anatomy and biomechanics concepts specifically to yoga movement, translating yoga philosophy concepts into modern language and practical use, developing clear language and confident communication skills to teach a wide array of students skillfully, and exploring unique ways to establish yourself as a yoga teacher sustainably. This program integrates all the aspects of Patanjali’s 8 limbs of yoga into a framework for teaching asana that moves beyond shapes and poses and invites your whole Self onto the mat.
If you’re into yoga and you want more, this is the program you’ve been waiting for.
Inhale Thrive’s 200HR Teacher Training program is a Yoga Alliance-approved training.

“I came into this training hoping to improve my flexibility and yoga postures and gain enough knowledge to teach if I wanted to. In addition to all of that, I learned a philosophy that applies not just to my mat, but to my life.”
“This yoga teacher training deepened my whole relationship with yoga. This course was organized in such a thoughtful and well-rounded way, with just the right levels of challenge and support. I was able to develop a stronger home practice, and I loved being able to build vital relationships not only with my classmates but also with all of the teachers who led the course. I would recommend this training course to anyone hoping to intensify their own practice while exploring--from all angles--how and why we offer yoga to others.”

Michelle Mineo E-RYT 200
I received my 200 hour certification in 2013, and after almost 25 years as a Speech and Language Pathologist, I decided to split my focus between my family, people with significant communication disorders, and people who need yoga to ground them in their lives and transition. I have been teaching up to 15 yoga classes a week ever since. I have practiced almost every style yoga to be found in Columbus, OH, but it my preference to teach accessible yet hard and fun vinyasa flow classes as well as yin classes. An avid concert goer, music is everything to me and is an important part of my classes. My personal mantra (Lennon/McCartney) “And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.” I’m grateful to the yoga every day. It grounds me, and it has led to amazing friendships and connections in my Bexley community. Can’t wait to see you on the mat!
