Foundations

The Stone Yoga School 200 Hour Basic Certification supports the development of a steady personal practice as the foundation for teaching. Students attend two 108-hour residential immersions. Every training is unique, yet all of them focus on the foundations of practice, philosophy, and teaching techniques. This means students can select any two immersions that work for them, knowing they will get a complete foundation for practice and teaching.

Integrating Practice

The Stone Yoga School 300/500 hour program allows students to build their own curriculum from among the many immersions and trainings Janet offers. Students can take the full 500 hours with Janet; or, if they have an approved 200 hour certificate from another school, take 300 hours with Janet. This flexible and extensive program allows students to train at a pace that allows for integration.

Finding Your Path

The Stone Yoga School 1008 Sadhana program reflects a core tenet of Janet’s philosophy of teaching yoga: that we teach from the root of our own practice. The Sadhana program builds on the philosophical and technical expertise gained in the 500-hour program, and asks students to find their own voice and path as teachers.
