Live Your Yoga & Teacher Training Program
Welcome to Live Your Yoga & Teacher Training with Dharma Richards, ERYT-500 and Yoga Garden. The purpose of this online membership resource is multifaceted in that it is open to teacher trainees and students alike. This 36-week Certification and Continuing Education program offers complimentary training resources to our teacher trainees, for students looking to deepen their knowledge of yoga, and for teachers obtaining CEU’s. Because of the personal instruction and formality of the course, space is limited and acceptance into the program is through an application process. For more information on our Live Your Yoga Teacher Training & CEU program, or to receive an application, please email us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Practice becomes firmly rooted when attended to for a long period of time, without interruption and with complete devotion. –Yoga Sutra 1:14
Om Shanti, Peace.
MEET YOUR TEACHER
Namaste. My name is Dharma Richards and I am the owner of Yoga Garden in Apex, N.C. It is my life’s dream and mission to share the wisdom and benefits of yoga and spiritual practice to as many people as I can. Being a studio owner and ERYT-500 instructor, Yoga Garden is a Yoga Alliance registered school at both the RYS200 & RYS500 levels. I incorporate a Classical Hatha-Raja style of teaching which encourages organic movement and an open heart as I routinely lead students through nurturing practices of pranayama/breathwork, asana/physical postures, and dhyana/meditation. My studies continue at the North Carolina School of Yoga with my beloved teacher Chandra Om, senior disciple of Sri Dharma Mittra as well as in the Kundalini lineage with HarDarshan Khalsa. My certifications also include Kundalini Yoga, Core Strength Vinyasa, Prenatal, Children’s, Vinyasa, Yin, and Yoga Warriors (for PTSD). Other specialized certifications include Core Strength Vinyasa by Sadie Nardini, Relax & Renew Instructor by Judith Lasater, Reiki Master and continued studies in Thai Massage (Nuad Boran). For detailed information, see my studio website, Yoga Garden of Apex, and personal website (link www.dharmarichards.com).
With other on-line courses we provide our current students, Mindful Muse retreat and Live Your Yoga Now, it is with great pleasure that we now offer an in-depth, well-rounded, and authentic yogic studies that incorporate the whole of the Science of Yoga. My intention behind this program is to offer an affordable and flexible option to students interested in finding wisdom, joy, serenity, peace and happiness in their everyday lives.
For further details on the program, please continue down the page. If you have any questions, please email me directly at email@example.com, or post a message through VYou on the sidebar. As a teacher trainee, I make every effort to be available at your request in a timely manner.
