Do you want to enhance your yoga practice? Do you want to understand the philosophy of yoga? Do you want to become a yoga teacher?
I invite you to explore the possibilities of yoga (teacher) training. This 200-hour course is designed to enhance one’s knowledge and understanding of yoga. We will use a variety of techniques through food management, meditation and asana (physical) practice to unfold the unlimited potential of the mind and soul (energy within). Through these techniques you will become more self-aware and develop a deeper relationship with your own spirituality.
The foundation of the course is based on the history and practices of the 8 limbs of Raja Yoga, an ancient tradition of the classical yoga of Patanjali. One of the objectives of the 200-hr Mystic Meadows Yoga Teacher Training is to develop a stronger sense of Self. In addition to learning proper alignment for safe practice and instruction, anatomy, assists, meditation, mindful eating, and class format. After completing this course you will be a certified yoga teacher.

Path of a Yogi
"I first started doing yoga when I was about 12 years old. My parents did it a couple times a week and sometimes I would join them. I always appreciated how grounded I felt after yoga. I also appreciated how connected I felt to my breath and the earth. When I met Amanda I couldn't believe that such an incredible teacher lived in Kirksville. During my time as a student athlete, I used yoga as a means of taking care of my tired body. I knew I wanted to dive deeper. After my soccer career ended I lost part of my identity. I felt lost. When Amanda approached me about her Path of a Yogi course i was excited to start a new journey. Little did I know that this course would alter the way I viewed the world, nature, and myself. With Amanda's guidance I have explored parts of myself that I didn't know existed. Amanda's Path of a Yogi course taught me to love deeper, laugh harder, and always do my best. I am so grateful for all I learned and I am so excited to keep learning more."
"As soon as I learned about the Path of a Yogi course, I knew it was something special I wanted to pursue. Having completed it, I am so glad I carved out time in my life to commit to the journey. Before beginning POY, I had a fairly steady yoga practice, where I learned primarily through my own reading and attending classes at local studios/gyms. I cannot stress enough how valuable it was to have a teacher like Amanda to guide me through the course, as well as to learn alongside other dedicated students in a positive environment. It is not just Amanda's impressive yoga background that makes her a great teacher; she is patient, open-minded, and thoughtful in her teaching, which creates a comfortable environment for physical and spiritual learning. I learned so much through POY, but it also taught me there is so much more to learn. The course itself is a gift that will keep on giving, and I am so excited to see where it will lead me next!."
"I can’t recommend Amanda enough! She is the most genuine and kind human. She is an excellent teacher and cares for you as a person. Teaching yoga is more than just a business to her. It’s her passion. I learned a TON about alignment, the history of yoga, different schools of thought, and also how to teach my students with kindness and awareness. This course is about more than just yoga. It is also a personal development course as well.’’
“I do not use the term ‘transformative’ lightly (or ever, really): but these were 10 weeks that changed my life – for the better. Not a small thing at age 55.’’
“Amanda offers a comprehensive YTT course with excellent instruction, a great reading list, varied classroom experiences and extensive knowledge of the yoga tradition.
I deepened my yoga practice and received lots of encouragement and support to begin my teaching practice. I highly recommend this course!”
"I enjoyed the 10-week sessions of Yoga Teacher Training. While I do not teach yoga, these sessions helped me go deeper in my own practice, learning the principles of breath and movement, and connecting body, mind, and spirit through the practice of yoga."
