Yoga Teacher Training Program
NOTE: We have temporarily suspended all in-person group yoga teacher training programs during the Covid-19 pandemic and look forward to resuming our YTT when the time is right. If you are interested in creating your own independent study program, please be in contact with us.
Thank you for inquiring about Ki McGraw and Bob Smith’s 200 hour Seattle Yoga Teacher Training Program.
Ki McGraw and Bob Smith have successfully led over 30 YTT training groups over the past 20 years and look forward to leading another one when the time is right. Ki and Bob are accomplished Hatha Yoga practitioners and meditators with a combined teaching experience of more than 65 years and they have put together a powerful set of two day weekend trainings. All workshops take place at the Hatha Yoga Center in Seattle. In these weekend training sessions you will receive asana, pranayama, and meditation instruction; as well as Yoga philosophy, anatomy as it applies to asana practice, and many other pertinent aspects of teaching Yoga. During the program you will learn to teach Yoga safely and wisely, with many opportunities for student teaching. Ki and Bob’s Yoga teacher training program is registered by the Yoga Alliance. The instructional cost for the entire 200 hour training is $2,400. Payment is to be made on a monthly basis of $140 per two day weekend workshop that you attend. The weekend trainings will be on break July – September, and they will resume in October. There will also be individual tutoring with Bob and Ki by attending certain classes at the Hatha Yoga Center and you will be able to choose these classes during the course of your study in this program. Graduation happens as enough hours are accumulated. This can be done in nine months, however, it generally takes students approximately 1 1/2 years to graduate.
There will be 20 hours of Yoga Anatomy offered in the spring. Asana practice and learning how to teach asana will always be an important part of each weekend – some of the afternoon subject matters for these weekends will include: pranayama, meditation, lineage, the Yoga Sutras, the Upanishads, mantra and yantra, living the life of a Western Yogi – Yogini; ethics, anatomy as it applies to asana practice, how to work with injuries, and specific practices of teaching.
Ki and Bob have only one main requirement before you can enter their training program – this being that you have practiced Hatha Yoga for at least two years before you can be admitted.into the program.
