Advanced Yoga Studies- Spring 2019

 200hr Teacher Training Certification 


This teacher training program is for students and yoga teachers who are ready to deepen their understanding of yoga, and those who want to use these teachings to live a more meaningful life. In this training, you will practice asana daily, along with meditation and pranayama. This training will give you all the tools you need to confidently teach an empowering vinyasa yoga class. There are no pre requisites for this training. Not all students who attend this training want to become a yoga teacher, but will have to teach during training in order to receive a certification. 





Lead Teacher: 


Maria Lages 

Maria's love for teaching began in 2008, when she completed a 200hr Power Yoga Certification with her beloved teacher, Grace Morales at Charlotte Yoga. She later continued her studies with an incredibly wise and knowledgeable teacher, Johnna Smith, who has an extensive background in Ashtanga Yoga. Maria loves to learn and travel the world. In 2012 she went to Mysore India and studied with V. Sheshadri, a well known Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga teacher, and since then, she has attended master classes and workshops led by Rolf Gates, Stephanie Keach, Baron Baptise and Rod Stryker.  In January of 2011, she opened Om Yoga, a community minded yoga studio in Fort Mill SC. She credits her entrepreneurial success to being incredibly passionate about making a difference in other people's lives. She encourages everyone who is a part of the Om Yoga community to incorporate and convey yogic values such as compassion, mindfulness, integrity, and purpose in their work and in their relationships. "My goal is to provide a peaceful and supportive space for people to breathe, move, connect to themselves and to one another."
