Attending 105F's 26+2 Hot Yoga Teacher Training changed me. Not like I'm a different person, but there will be before and after Teacher Training markers in my life. I'm more clear on what I want, more decisive in my actions, I care less about certain things and certain opinions of others, and more about others. I hear that comes with age, but it hadn't. It came with reflection and four weeks of yoga. Deep yoga. It's like another fresh start. A new phase. It feels good and I can't wait to see what's next.

-Mandy Palen, Spring 2017 Teacher Training Graduate & Studio Owner


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.
