Yoga Teacher's Continuing Education by YACEP providers
YACEP providers are given the designation by the Yoga Alliance, a yoga teacher organization that sets standards for education for yoga teachers. A YACEP provider must be an E-RYT - another designation that requires a minimum of 1,000 documented hours of teaching experience. (Experienced registered yoga teacher).
We currently have on our team teachers who have in the past or currently are yoga studio owners, have developed and trained both 200 hr and 500 hr yoga teacher training programs, or have developed an expertise in an area of yoga. Our staff of teachers have much more than the minimum requisite experience and training, some with 10, 15 or 20 years of teaching experience. Our continuing education trainings are offered by the best trainers available.
Nancy Marcy, E-RYT500 Bio I am a retired physical education and health teacher who has always led an active life. During my teaching career, I was lucky to be able to learn and teach many kinds of physical activity: Aquatics, athletics, dance, martial arts, strength training, and yoga. Of all these, yoga has become an indispensable means to a balanced, healthy lifestyle. With 16 years of experience in practicing and teaching yoga, I continue to derive benefits that are physical, emotional, and spiritual. There are many types of yoga, though all of them share basic tenets. Iyengar Yoga resonates with me because of its precision, discipline, and keen focus on proper, healthful biomechanics. I became a certified Iyengar Yoga Instructor in 2015. I am a member of the Yoga Alliance, certified at the 500-hour level. I received that training from Spirit of the Lake Yoga and Wellness Center with an emphasis on yoga therapy. I have a master of education degree from the University of Minnesota. Because of my background as a coach, dance teacher, and adapted physical education teacher, I have a keen interest in working one-on-one with people to help them learn and use yoga asana for their individualized needs, whether they be for the purpose of athletic progress, to increase range of motion, or to remediate joint pain. I am also trained in Ayurveda (the East Indian science of health), and can work with you to develop healthy nutritional and self-care habits according to your personal constitution.
