Starseed Yoga Offers Teacher Training

Aug 31, 2013 02:23PM

Starseed Yoga & Wellness, at 271 Grove Avenue in Verona, a highly regarded fixture in Essex County for more than 25 years, is once again offering its popular teacher training programs at the 200- and 500-hour levels. The signature nine-month, 200-hour training program starts on Saturday, September 28, and the five-month, 300-hour training program starts on Friday, October 18. Starseed, which relocated to Verona after many years in Montclair, has trained many area yoga studio owners and teachers: Its training has been approved by the Yoga Alliance at both levels since 2000.

Amy L. Para, studio owner and director of training, completed her own 500-hour teacher training program at Starseed in 2004. She explained that the training programs draw women and men of all ages who want to become yoga teachers as well as those seeking healing practices to help themselves or others. Many also are looking to deepen their spiritual practices.

“It’s really very exciting and inspiring to meet each class of trainees and to watch them grow and blossom,” said Para. “Starseed-trained teachers are easy to identify from other graduates of 200-hour programs because our programs are fully comprehensive and many exceed the Yoga Alliance requirements in all categories.”
