REACH 300hr yoga teacher training is an integrative and comprehensive program designed to help you fulfill your purpose as a teacher.
Refine and Elevate your teaching skills. Form and Authentic Connection with your students and teaching style from the Heart.
Bree Koenig and Maggie Gelineau have a combined experience of over 20 years in the yoga industry. Both as teachers and students, they have been dedicated to the growth and integrity of their personal practice and ability as teachers.
Bree and Maggie both have authentic, unique and dynamic teaching styles, each was naturally drawn to the other's class. They became friends and colleagues as they challenged each other's skill set, encouraging growth and development. Through leading several events, workshops and trainings together the concept for REACH Teacher Training was born.
This is a collaborative experience, we hold each other accountable to understanding the “WHY” behind our choices..both in the seat of the teacher and the student. We all come to the collective with varying degrees of knowledge and experience...your offering to the collective is no more or less valuable than anyone else. Come with an open heart and mind!
REFINEMENT and ELEVATION
Refinement of teaching styles through coached inquiry and personal development work. You will be encouraged to gently rub up against the boundaries of what you already know about yourself, teaching, your students and the world of yoga!!!
Elevation of Sequencing skills....Get ready to play with some “Awesome Sun A” and ‘Bad Ass Sun B” variations. Teach intelligent and creative sequences that move with fluidity, function, intensity and playfulness. You will leave with a formula that is applicable to many styles of classes and teaching. Communicate how these experiences relate to your students and the applied philosophy of yoga.
Connect with your students beyond a prescribed way of touching students for each posture. Learn to observe each student and the posture as an individual and support their needs in the present moment. This method of touch will support “personalized alignment” safety and function. Learn to provide assists that balance stability & mobility with flexibility & strength. Verbally assist students with sensation based language. Learning to identify how the function of postures should feel; allows us to draw a clear map in & out of each shape. Teach the “HOW AND WHY” of postures and hands on assists.
The Heart of yoga teaching is it’s philosophy. Learn to weave these principles throughout the many layers of your class and life. We explore deep conversations of the Yamas, Niyamas and Chakra system. We explore aspects of Kundalini Kriya, mantra and mudras to elevate both your understanding of the philosophy and your ability to share it with students
ANATOMY with DR. Maryanne Harrington • Focusing on an integrative approach to functional anatomy as applied to yoga. Address common areas of injury.

Learn how to support students in a balanced approach to practice, Discover intentional and specific modalities of guided meditation as both a teacher and a practitioner. Demystify the science and philosophy of breath work with exploration, experiential and scholastic workshops and research assignments.
PROPS & POSTURE clinics
Comprehensive resources and training in the utilization of props to aid students in understanding the progression, purpose and alignment of postures. Props can equally elevate and regress the challenge of a physical shape when applied with intelligence through an integrative approach. You will have tons of teaching opportunities with both your peers and facilitators. This is a “feedback friendly” learning environment. Feedback is a skill set we will strengthen, both in its delivery and on the part of the receiver.
