Your four week Teacher Training program will be held at the We Are Yoga studio in Ormond Beach, Florida.  Ormond Beach is just north of Daytona Beach along Florida’s Atlantic Coast.  Daytona Beach International Airport (DAB) or Orlando Airport (MCO) are the easiest and most convenient airports to fly in and out of.  DAB is a quick 15 minute drive to Ormond Beach. MCO takes about 1 hour and 15 minutes but flights are more direct and generally less expensive.

Where I live, 95% of the people teaching Bikram are certified by Bikram himself. When I knew that wasn't the direction I wanted to take, I put a lot of time and effort into research and soul searching to decide who I would train with.

From the start, 105F was a front runner. The second I got on the phone with Kiley I knew something special was going on with this group. Even more, she made me feel like I was the missing piece. It wasn't a sales pitch. After 30 minutes on the phone with her, we knew each other a little. She had a feeling I would be just right for the training and thoughtfully shared with me why the training might be just right for me.

I wasn't even sure I wanted to teach on the day I left for Ormond Beach. I joined the 2019 class purely on intuition. I felt like there was something I needed there. Listening to that voice has paid off every day since.

I'm 36 yrs old. I've been through a few things. Not everything. But a few things. This training was by far the most mentally, physically, and spiritually challenging thing I have ever been through. That's what makes it so special. That's why it's got something that I don't believe every training has. It's rare to find the perfect balance of push and support, of sternness (that's for you G) and tenderness, but that's what's here, that's what is provided for trainees, every step of the way.

You want a straight review of the 105F training? Five stars. Dialogue, check. Posture breakdown, check. Anatomy, check. Asana instruction, check. Yoga history, check. All that stuff is there, and it's given to you in full by the best. Gianna Purcell, Kathy Durham, Erin Frank, Kiley Enmark. These women are wise, strong, nurturing, experienced, and here to give. They believe in all that yoga is and all that it can be. They live it by bravely embracing their humanity and inviting others to do the same. Each one on their own is a force. Together, they are magic.

These women. These women, and special guests, and your fellow trainees, and, YOU. That's what makes this training. You can't know all this experience has to give before you get there. You have to go, to get it.

I hope you do go. And I hope somewhere along the way, I'll get to meet you, and hear about it, and maybe I'll share a little of my story as well. Cause we'll be family then--we'll be linked, inextricably, because of this great thing we took a chance on. This thing makes our world bigger--it makes us believe in ourselves, and in each other. It's a great thing. It's a yoga teacher training, and it's so much more. You should go. I really hope you go.

-Cat Bradley, 105F 26+2 Hot Yoga Teacher Training Class of 2019


Posture Clinic:

Starts Trainees in speaking the 105F Dialogue, in how to guide others through the set-up, action, and exit of each of the 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises.  Interspersed feedback will identify effective usage of language and cues.  Starting slow and simple, isolating one pose at a time, Posture Clinics gradually progress into sequences of multiple posture presentation.  Skill objectives include: competent understanding of posture language and mechanics, confidence in public speaking and teaching, and constructive giving and receiving of feedback.


 Logically extends the Posture Clinic into preparations for teaching a full, live class.  Trainee will start by teaching one posture at a time and then will string postures together by groups (balancing series, spine-strengthening series) in order to calibrate verbal speed, pose spacing, and class timing.  Skill objectives include: proper voice projection, real-time corrections, non-reactive teaching techniques, and efficient language.

Teaching Methodology:

Delves into key principles and methods to help achieve maximum results with students. Skill objectives include: posture and series continuity, dialogue dissection, mapping your class, feedback philosophy, and didactic responsibilities.

Teaching Techniques: 

Trainee will identify particular scenarios for addressing individual student potentials and limitations, moving through the room while teaching, prepping students before class, debriefing students after class, and using psychology, humor and stories to convey points.

Anatomy and Physiology:

 Complements Trainees’ visual and practical understanding of the human body.  A series of lectures will illuminate the significance of articulating anatomy, axial anatomy, and the nervous system in helping understand how the muscles, bones, and joints create the postures, how spinal position affords muscular continuity throughout the series, and how information flows throughout the body.

Yoga Philosophy, Lifestyle, and Ethics:

  Surveys overarching theories underpinning yoga and consonant responsibilities of yoga teacher.  Yoga Nidra philosophy and meditation techniques are showcased with supporting review of Raja Yoga, the Signs of Samadhi, and Hatha Yoga Pradipika.

Business of Yoga:

Takes a straight look into the yoga business opportunities available to a certified yoga teacher.  Basic teaching employment, management considerations, and studio ownership concerns will be presented with success/fail comparisons and eye toward win-win scenarios.

Gianna Purcell

Aching with back and joint pain, Gianna followed a friend’s recommendation and took her first yoga class and ended two years of sedentary living.  After just a few weeks of practice, her pain dropped; within a year, she was off all medications (ADHD meds, antidepressants and sleeping pills); at two years she began advanced asana training; and by year three she certified as a teacher. Thirsty to know, she went full time studying, teaching and practicing the 26 + 2 series and Ashtanga yoga.


Kathy Durham

Kathy’s interest in yoga began as a personal mission to heal her daily battle with anxiety and depression without using medication. She was invited to a Bikram Yoga class in 2004 where she embarked on a life long journey to wellness. From the first breath, she found security, freedom, relief, and support. Bikram Yoga Teacher Training soon followed in the Spring of 2005. This channeled a new radiant being to emerge and blossom in the years to come. She walked out more confident, more energetic, more alive and more true to herself.

We’re inviting all hot yoga studio owners and certified teachers to experience our 105F 26+2 Hot Yoga Teacher Training!  Join us for up to a week and fully immerse yourself in asana practice and yoga studies with Gianna Purcell, Kathy Durham, and the rest of our 105F Teacher Training team.  Email teachertraining@105F.com for more information.
