Teacher Training

“The best teachers are those who show you where to look, but don’t tell you what to see.”-Alexandra Trenfor


Want to deepen your yoga practice, further your knowledge of yoga, or share your love for yoga with others?  Here is your chance to immerse yourself in the world of yoga and become a teacher yourself!  Maybe you’re feeling as if you don’t really want to be a teacher at all, but would like to dive deeper into learning about your practice and you!  It’s your time to learn the ROOTS of this yoga tradition and join us for your Yoga Teacher Training!

You’re  encouraged to embark on your yoga journey by lead teacher Jamie McDaniel 500 RYT and guest teacher/s Anne Ondrey, Cortney Martinelli, Betsy Black and others.   It’s time for you to advance your practice, gain understanding of yoga history and philosophy, develop skills in assisting, learn to lead and create organized vinyasa and slow flow  yoga classes, increase your understanding of  anatomy,  and  enhance who you were designed to be!

Wadsworth Teacher Training will be held every other week on Thursdays from 5-9p.m. and Sundays 10:30-6:00 p.m. starting September 12th, 2019 and finishing on March 1.   Reiki Level 1 will also be included in this training with Cortney Martinelli.  For more information on her training click here.

“Yoga Teacher Training with Jamie is life-changing. I learned to be a better human being while simultaneously growing a new community and more refined physical practice. You just can't find that anywhere. They don't sell it in books or stores. You can't learn that online. You have to dive in, head first and trust your teacher to lead you where you need to be. Jamie's that person and she does it with her whole heart.”

“5 Stars! Teacher Training with Jamie has been wonderful! She has an undeniable passion for yoga and a strong desire for all of her students to succeed. I am finishing the program with the knowledge, skills, and confidence needed to begin my journey as a yoga teacher.”

2017 200 HR TT Graduate

“At middle-age, I was leery about pursuing a Yoga Teacher Training, but this offering at Roots, my home studio, beckoned me to venture into the unknown. I knew I wanted to deepen my own practice, and yet I had no idea how transformative this experience would be. Jamie stoked my passion for yoga and ignited my desire to teach and share this journey of the mind, body, and spirit with others. I am grateful for the comprehensive program Jamie designed for us, inclusive of yogic philosophy and theory, an introduction to anatomy, a challenging daily practice of asana, meditation, and journaling, and the inclusion of spectacular outside teachers and workshops. I uncovered layers of myself that had been waiting to rise to the surface. I made lifelong friends with my fellow trainees. I embarked on a journey of self-discovery and wholeness of which I’ve only scratched the surface. Yoga is indeed a way of life.”

“Yoga teacher training at Roots Yoga and Barre was great! Jamie has a wealth of knowledge and a passion for teaching. I learned so much during my 200 hour training. I highly recommend to anyone with even a slight interest in teaching or wanting to deepen their practice.” 

Amber Netherton 2019 Graduate

“Yoga Teacher Training at Roots was the best decision and truly life changing for me. While I expected to deepen my practice and learn more about the philosophy of yoga, I also became a stronger, more confident person. It was challenging and transforming on a physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual level. I also met the best people who will become life long friends.”
