Inform Your Flow – Yogahour Teacher Training
200-Hour Certification at Maha Yoga
March – November 2017
Yogahour® is an accessible, affordable, expertly-taught flow class that offers clear and specific alignment instructions. It is both a technology and a style that is the perfect blend of form (alignment) and flow (movement with breath).
This method maximizes safety and promotes longevity of practice. It’s for all levels of practitioners, from experienced students to the fit beginner. Yogahour aims to be the most doable yet difficult one-hour flow-form class offered anywhere.
The Inform Your Flow training equips you with the tools and practices which empower you to deliver an expertly-taught flow class that emphasizes form via shape, safety, and refinement instructions for each pose. This training is for you if you have the desire to dive deeper into your yoga practice, expand your understanding of asana and alignment, and share your love of yoga with others. This 200-hour program is beneficial for new teachers seeking a foundation for their teaching career and experienced teachers looking for expert teaching technologies to bring clarity and precision to their instruction.
Maha Yoga’s 200-Hour Yogahour® Teacher Training is a Yoga Alliance® approved program. Upon completion of the program, you will be eligible to become a 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200). This registry makes you a good candidate for getting hired to teach many styles of yoga. All graduates also have the option to become a yogahour certified teacher, which includes yogahour specific testing. Whether your aim is to teach or to polish your personal practice, this process will provide you with the necessary tools to achieve your goals.
The training will be co-taught by Maha instructor Teagan Schweitzer along with Darren Rhodes, (founder of yogahour) and Sam Rice (lead yogahour teacher trainer).

“My experience with Teagan and the Inform Your Flow training at Maha was truly amazing. The curriculum was incredibly comprehensive in nature and Teagan was an expert instructor. Teagan has an unparalleled enthusiasm for all things yoga, and her skilled guidance and deep dedication to this training was essential to making it so successful. The yogahour practice is one which empowers teacher trainees with the right tools to step out of the training and directly into the teaching role; with crystal clear alignment cues, high-quality sequencing, and guidelines for creating a positive class environment, the blueprint for a good yoga class is embedded in the training experience. As someone who did not set out to teach regularly after the training, I feel that the investment I made to join the Inform Your Flow group was 110% worthwhile; I have observed significant personal growth, a strengthened yoga practice, wonderful and strong friendships with co-trainees, and even a desire to teach! The community and culture Teagan fostered in the training class was one of support, respect, and most importantly, joy and love of yoga. I strongly recommend this training to anyone with a passion for practice and continual learning, whether aspiring to teach yoga or not. This is an extremely valuable experience not to be missed!” – Anonymous
“Teagan is one of our area’s premier yoga teachers and practitioners, so it was a real honor to study with her. Her knowledge of, skills in, and commitment to yoga, and yogahour specifically, are truly amazing. I feel lucky to have shared 200 hours with her. I also really appreciated the focus on teaching yoga – something that is not always emphasized in trainings. While I took this training mostly to deepen my own, personal practice, I have come away with an unexpected confidence in my own capacity to successfully teach yoga as well. I learned so much and grew on so many levels. This was, without a doubt, one of the most important experiences of my life. I’m so glad I made the time and effort to do this.” – Katy Travaline
“The Inform Your Flow teacher training with Teagan was life-changingly amazing! Throughout our 6 months together I became stronger, more aware of my body, and more in tune with myself. The weekends we spent together were fun, empowering, and deeply educational. I signed up just wanting to learn more about yoga and deepen my personal practice, but after hours of teaching drills, I actually feel prepared to teach.” – Jessica Kipp
“In addition to providing me with the practical foundation I need in order to teach a stellar yoga class, this training has empowered me to become more confident within my own story (and better at telling it!). It was an honor to have the opportunity to learn from Teagan. I would take this training again and I know I would learn even more the second time around!” – Katie Pizziketti
“This teacher training has changed me. I have grown in ways that I never knew where possible – physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually. I feel like I have evolved. Teagan makes teaching accessible and fun. Her commitment to her students and the quality of the training that she provided inspired my own dedication and desire to immerse myself in this experience. It was incredibly special to spend so much time with Teagan and the other students in this training. It has given me a whole new community; one that I feel a strong sense of belonging to. Teagan is a catalyst for her students’ development; she creates the environment, drive, and accessibility that allowed us all to blossom into capable, unique, and passionate yoga teachers.” – Nikki Wright
