The aim of this 300 Hour Training program is to create exceptional teachers and leaders. Not only will you leave our program prepared to teach, you will also be able to stand in front of a room of people and share openly and authentically.   You will gain invaluable insight into your own way of being.   At DDY, we believe that the best yoga teachers are those who connect with their students, who speak authentically and from the heart, and who are comfortable in their own skin, regardless of who or what is around them.  As a 300 Hour trainee you will: 

  • Set clear and defined goals for your teaching and your life.
  • Explore new tools and techniques  for  teaching and leadership.
  • Learn effective tools for facilitation and workshop presentation.
  • Experience Svadhyaya, rigorous personal self-inquiry
  • Remove perceived and real obstacles from your teaching.
  • Receive personal coaching and guidance.
  • Commit to growth.

We invite you to step into greatness and into the service of others and to become an exceptional teacher and leader.

"When working with Shelley on my 300 hour certification one word comes to mind. EMPOWERMENT. It is the perfect mix of leading, assisting and learning. Being able to take the tools she has given me to confidently lead a group of 5-500 people is priceless. If you are looking to take your leadership skills to another level, expand as a teacher and tap into a heightened awareness when connecting with students, then THIS is the training for you!"
