The Bend and Zen Hot Yoga Teacher Training is dedicated to helping students become great yoga teachers. The training emphasizes skills and knowledge that are directly applicable to teaching Vinyasa yoga. In addition, the training creates space for experiences that will benefit people holistically. The training has four primary goals:
The program consists of 7 weekend intensives and 2 weeknight intensives.
Unique to any Louisville-based training, Bend and Zen is committed to making this an enriched experience, where students hear and learn from diverse subject-matter experts. We are bringing in internationally recognized specialist and author of ‘Yoga Anatomy’ Leslie Kaminoff to lead a 2-day Functional Anatomy workshop.
Leading the yoga history and philosophy lectures is Frank Jude Boccio, a certified yoga teacher and a teacher of Zen Buddhism ordained by Korean Zen Master Samu Sunim. Frank is also an interfaith minister and long-time student of Thich Nhat Hanh.
