Pike Yoga


At Pike Yoga, we believe that EVERYONE needs yoga. Yoga is the one practice that complements all other exercise programs. Whether practiced daily or once a week, yoga will produce considerable benefits.

Our philosophy, "Attitude. Matitude. Gratitude." comes from our practice of yoga. 

Most of us come to class with some form of an attitude, and not necessarily in the negative sense. Our attitudes can arise from frustration, guilt, anger, fatigue, loneliness, excitement, urgency, contentment, or any number of other feelings. So then, we come to the mat and practice; we begin to work through these outside distractions. 

Yes, it's a made up word. Matitude is simply being present--there on the mat--with the breath, the mind, and the body. Matitude is dynamic--always changing, always evolving. It is the practice of being who it is that you are supposed to be. 

The final component is gratitude. This is where the intention of your practice is absorbed. It is finding light in darkness, quietness in chaos--simply being thankful.

Topics to be covered: 

We will use the First and Second Series postures from Ashtanga Yoga to explore asana and use the sequences as a basis to be able to teach a 60 Minute Short Form Ashtanga Class, a 60 minute Vinyasa class, a 60 minute Gentle Yoga Class and a 60 minute Yin yoga class upon graduation. Trainees will learn the breakdown of each asana and teaching techniques so they can effectively communicate this to their students. Trainees will learn different methods of Meditation techniques and will be introduced to their Dosha and the Chakras ( 7 centers of the Energetic Body). This comprehensive teacher training program will strengthen your personal yoga practice as well as prepare you to be a skilled and compassionate teacher. Monthly assignments will be given based on the required reading.
