Prerequisites for Power Alignment Yoga® Teacher Training and Hatha Alignment Yoga Instructor Certification Program:
The primary prerequisite is interest in learning the Power Alignment Yoga® approach to teaching Hatha Yoga.
Students do not need to be experts in any aspect of Yoga, but they do need to have a well-established Hatha Yoga practice that has been consistent for at least six months. **
Students should have a love of Yoga and a strong desire to pass that love of Yoga on to others.
Students should be in good physical and mental health (minor injuries/illness may be accommodated).
**In order to prepare for the Power Alignment Yoga® Teacher Training, students need to have had a daily personal yoga practice for an extended period of time. We recommend at least an hour of Power yoga every day for six months before the start of the training. During the training, we will be practicing yoga for approximately three hours each day. This can be physically, mentally, and emotionally demanding. Physical fitness acquired through other disciplines does not necessarily provide sufficient preparation. We ask that students have a strong personal Power yoga practice to ensure they will be prepared for the high level of activity and the heightened level of energy produced in the body by this intense daily practice of asana and pranayama.

History of Power Alignment Yoga® Teacher Training and Hatha Alignment Yoga Instructor Certification Program:
Videos featuring Patricia Walden and Rodney Yee were my introduction to yoga. I loved the precise alignment and attention to detail the videos emphasized but since I was living in the New Mexico desert at that time and no certified Iyengar instructors were available, I began practicing Power Yoga. I enjoyed the strength building and sweating of Power Yoga but I still yearned for alignment training; I extensively studied Power Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga, and Hot Yoga and when my husband and I moved to Florida in 2000, I completed a 1,000-hour Alignment yoga teacher training. Through my love of Power Yoga and Alignment Yoga, I created, developed, and have held the trademark on Power Alignment Yoga® since 2004. Through the encouragement of students, mentors, friends and family, I created the Power Alignment Yoga® Teacher Training program in 2007. Power Alignment Yoga® Teacher Training Program (RYS®) is registered with Yoga Alliance® at the 200 hour level. In 2009, I created the 615 Hour Power Alignment Yoga® Teacher Training Program which is registered with Yoga Alliance®. Most recently, I open Altamonte Springs Yoga in 2010 and The Yoga University of Florida in 2011. Altamonte Springs Yoga and The Yoga University of Florida serve the Orlando Yoga community providing Hot Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Prenatal Yoga, Yin Yoga and Yoga Therapy Classes, Workshops, Trainings and Events with local, national and international presenters.
