2013 December

The past few years have been busy ones for Shelburne Falls Yoga and for its director, Kate Pousont Scarborough. Since taking ownership of the studio in 2011, Kate has completed an Advanced Professional Yoga Teacher Training at Kripalu Center, attained the highest level of teaching certification through the Yoga Alliance, and returned to assist and facilitate in yoga teacher trainings at Kripalu. At home, Shelburne Falls Yoga has quietly continued to expand. Known for their physical and philosophical sophistication and their accessibility to students of all backgrounds, Kate’s classes have become popular gathering places for dedicated yoga students from West County and beyond. With a full schedule of classes and regular visits from renowned guest teachers, Shelburne Falls Yoga continues to establish its reputation as a growing center for spirituality and health. In addition, Kate has recently co-founded two new organizations working in conjunction with Shelburne Falls Yoga, Living World Yoga and EARTHjourneys.

Beginning September 2014, Shelburne Falls Yoga will host the Living World Yoga 200-hour Interdisciplinary Yoga Teacher Training. Inspired by the teachings of Swami Kripalu, a yoga master known for his deep and compassionate spiritual practice, this training will provide the opportunity to learn firsthand the power and depth of the practice of yoga and the tools to effectively teach this practice to others. Living World Yoga will offer an experiential weekend immersion training one weekend per month from September to June.

The training will be led by Kate Pousont Scarborough and Marije E. Paternotte, both experienced and passionate teachers of Kripalu yoga. Marije and Kate share a strong belief in the transformative power of yoga, a love of teaching and community, and a strong personal practice. Along with special guest teachers Grace Jull and Devarshi Steven Hartman, we will be guiding you toward a skillful and individual expression of your own teaching potential through the tradition of compassionate present moment awareness.

This training is for passionate students of yoga who would like to gain a deeper understanding of themselves through the practice of yoga, for those who wish to teach this practice to others, and for 200-hour yoga teachers seeking to enrich their current teaching practice.
