Yoga Nidra means Yogic Sleep and refers to the conscious awareness of the Deep Sleep state. In Yoga Nidra you leave the waking state, go past the dreaming state and then progress into a deep sleep, yet all this is done while you remain awake. The state of yoga nidra is deeply relaxing and rejuvenating. Time spent in yoga nidra opens us to deeper clarity. It is one of the deepest of all meditations, leading us to supreme stillness and insight.
 
We invite you to come and allow Tina Templeman to guide you into a deeply restful and revitalizing practice. This restorative “inner body” yoga uses a series of guided visualizations and deep relaxation techniques to move beyond the conditioned mind into a state of expanded self-awareness. Access to the deeper realms of the mind allows us to release the sources of tension, anxiety, unwanted habits, and self-limiting beliefs and to awaken our greatest inner potential.
 
Bring your friends & family and give the gift of peace and relaxation this holiday season. No prior experience is necessary.

The purpose of the Be Luminous Teacher Training program is to empower you to teach and inspire others to live vibrant, joyful lives.  It is our firm belief that happy, healthy people are the only people who can help build a happy, healthy world.  This is the work of being a teacher.  It begins with the individual and spreads as you live yoga - live union - in your life.

Upon successful completion of the Be Luminous Yoga Teacher Training, you are eligible to apply for your 200 RYT certification with the Yoga Alliance.  This program is also certified through the Washington State Workforce Training board, a consumer protection agency govering all vocational schools in the State of Washington.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does this training prepare me to teach that other trainings may not offer?   We are committed to empowering you to teach NOW, not with 3 more years of practice under your belt.  In order to achieve this, you will have many teaching and feedback opportunists each weekend.  Of particular interest, the Be Luminous Yoga program offers you three opportunities to teach on video, receiving feedback from two coaches each time.  By the last time, you will teach a full 1-hour class.  Second, you will teach a small section of a live class of 40-60 people on the weekend of graduation.  Most programs offer small bits of feedback on individual poses or 5-10 minutes of teaching.  We believe you need to teach real people in real settings for longer amounts of time in order to be ready to teach.  We offer you a unique and fabulous opportunity to grow quickly with our system.

  • What differentiates this training?
  • Commitment to, and processes that will ensure, every participant is able to teach the day they complete the program.
  • An artfully crafted curriculum designed with research-proven learning methods. Michel Eubank Spruance holds a masters degree in curriculum design, and brings her passion for experiential learning to the training. 
  • An emphasis on, steady practice of, meditation spearheaded by Scott Francis who has been studying at Spirit Rock center for over 20 years. 
  • A study of the traditional teachings of yoga that makes them applicable in your real, daily life as person, a spouse, a parent, a business owner, a young person in transition, etc…. 
  • And experiential and integrative approach to anatomy and physiology so that you instantaneously feel and understand the impact of your movement and how it applies to teaching. 
  • With Tina Templeman as a lead instructor of the Be Luminous Yoga Teacher Training, you get the benefit of an integrated approach to anatomy and physiology that means you absorb the information naturally through practice and application.   
  • The Staff: 
    • Michel brings her skills as a powerful educator and facilitator, and a deep passion for designing programs and curriculum that make a real difference in people’s lives.  She has been facilitating transformation work since she was 18 years old, starting with Essential Peacemaking & Peace Trees. 
    • Scott brings over 20 years of meditation and yoga practice to the training, including having complete multiple 10-30 day silent meditation retreats.
    • Tina brings her powerful teaching of yoga, coupled by her study of the human body as a massage therapist, creator of anatomy and physiology components for multiple teacher trainings in the Pacific Northwest.  She is also a Reiki master and had facilitated non-yoga transformational work for since 2002.

How many people will be in our teacher training?  We limit the number of participants to 32 people, with a staff to student ratio of 1:8.  We require 16 people at a minimum to run the program.  While many applicants will be accepted, not all will be.  You must have practiced yoga for at least three months before applying to this training.   

What is the pre-requisite work?  Anyone is eligible to apply for teacher training.  Once you are accepted, you will be given your pre-requisite work, which mainly consists of reading, anatomy study and reviewing a few classes at various studios before we begin.  This is about 30 hours worth of work that you complete on your own in any way that works for you.  We recommend making the initial Application Deadline to have the most time to complete your work.

When will I hear if I am accepted?  Applications for 2015 will be reviewed and accepted within one week of each of the posted application deadlines.  At this time, you will be sent the enrollment agreement.  Upon recepeit of your enrollment agreement, you will receive an acceptance letter, a welcome packet with your pre-requisite work to begin, and we will charge you based on your application preferences.

What if I need to miss a session?   If you already know you will need to miss more than a day of training, we recommend that you wait for the next training.  It is a requirmeent of the Yoga Alliance that you receive a minimum number of contact hours for the training to apply for Yoga Alliance Certification.  It is also quite challenging to parse out the time you miss into make-up time.   Any hours missed must be made up at an extra expense of $50 per hour (this is significantly less many other teacher training programs).  We will always work with people for family emergencies and other issues that may arise.

The Be Luminous Teacher Training was a rich, powerful, engaging, illuminating experience all the way through.  But honestly, I felt I got my money's worth after just the first weekend! 

The training pushed me physically and mentally, engaged and expanded my intellect, created personal inquiry opportunities that illuminated my sense-of-self, and provided teaching opportunities with peers - all through a teaching staff that pushed me and supported me through training to be my best self and teacher!         - 2013 Participant

Tension and stress manifest in many ways in our body and mind, including sleeplessness, headaches, irritability, depression, an inability to focus, as well as infertility.

Join Jodi for this 2.5-hour workshop dedicated to relaxing deeply and dissolving stress, You will practice a series of fully supported and passive postures, leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. You’ll also receive a booklet showing you short sequences that you can practice at home specifically for sleeplessness, stress reduction and exhaustion.

Jodi Boone has taught yoga for over 13 years, completing her Level 1 & 2 Baptiste Yoga Training in 2003. She is inspired by the teachings of Power Vinyasa’s empowerment, accessibilty and strength. Jodi also specializes in Restorative and Yin Yoga. By blending the two, she has created this focused, yet nourishing workshop.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does this training prepare me to teach that other trainings may not offer?   We are committed to empowering you to teach NOW, not with 3 more years of practice under your belt.  In order to achieve this, you will have many teaching and feedback opportunists each weekend.  Of particular interest, the Be Luminous Yoga program offers you three opportunities to teach on video, receiving feedback from two coaches each time.  By the last time, you will teach a full 1-hour class.  Second, you will teach a small section of a live class of 40-60 people on the weekend of graduation.  Most programs offer small bits of feedback on individual poses or 5-10 minutes of teaching.  We believe you need to teach real people in real settings for longer amounts of time in order to be ready to teach.  We offer you a unique and fabulous opportunity to grow quickly with our system.

How many people will be in our teacher training?  We limit the number of participants to 32 people, with a staff to student ratio of 1:8.  We require 16 people at a minimum to run the program.  While many applicants will be accepted, not all will be.  You must have practiced yoga for at least three months before applying to this training.   

What is the pre-requisite work?  Anyone is eligible to apply for teacher training.  Once you are accepted, you will be given your pre-requisite work, which mainly consists of reading, anatomy study and reviewing a few classes at various studios before we begin.  This is about 30 hours worth of work that you complete on your own in any way that works for you.  We recommend making the initial Application Deadline to have the most time to complete your work.

When will I hear if I am accepted?  Applications for 2015 will be reviewed and accepted within one week of each of the posted application deadlines.  At this time, you will be sent the enrollment agreement.  Upon recepeit of your enrollment agreement, you will receive an acceptance letter, a welcome packet with your pre-requisite work to begin, and we will charge you based on your application preferences.

What if I need to miss a session?   If you already know you will need to miss more than a day of training, we recommend that you wait for the next training.  It is a requirmeent of the Yoga Alliance that you receive a minimum number of contact hours for the training to apply for Yoga Alliance Certification.  It is also quite challenging to parse out the time you miss into make-up time.   Any hours missed must be made up at an extra expense of $50 per hour (this is significantly less many other teacher training programs).  We will always work with people for family emergencies and other issues that may arise.

The Be Luminous Teacher Training was a rich, powerful, engaging, illuminating experience all the way through.  But honestly, I felt I got my money's worth after just the first weekend!


The training pushed me physically and mentally, engaged and expanded my intellect, created personal inquiry opportunities that illuminated my sense-of-self, and provided teaching opportunities with peers - all through a teaching staff that pushed me and supported me through training to be my best self and teacher!

Peace is present right here and now, in ourselves and in everything we do and see.  The question is whether or not we are in touch with it.  We don't have to travel far away to enjoy the blue sky.

We don't have to leave our city or even our neighborhood to enjoy the eyes of a beautiful child. Even the air we breathe can be a source of joy…We need only to be awake, alive in the present moment."      - Thich Nhat Hanh

Frequently Asked Questions

How does this training prepare me to teach that other trainings may not offer?   We are committed to empowering you to teach NOW, not with 3 more years of practice under your belt.  In order to achieve this, you will have many teaching and feedback opportunists each weekend.  Of particular interest, the Be Luminous Yoga program offers you three opportunities to teach on video, receiving feedback from two coaches each time.  By the last time, you will teach a full 1-hour class.  Second, you will teach a small section of a live class of 40-60 people on the weekend of graduation.  Most programs offer small bits of feedback on individual poses or 5-10 minutes of teaching.  We believe you need to teach real people in real settings for longer amounts of time in order to be ready to teach.  We offer you a unique and fabulous opportunity to grow quickly with our system.

  • What differentiates this training?
  • Commitment to, and processes that will ensure, every participant is able to teach the day they complete the program.
  • An artfully crafted curriculum designed with research-proven learning methods. Michel Eubank Spruance holds a masters degree in curriculum design, and brings her passion for experiential learning to the training. 
  • An emphasis on, steady practice of, meditation spearheaded by Scott Francis who has been studying at Spirit Rock center for over 20 years. 
  • A study of the traditional teachings of yoga that makes them applicable in your real, daily life as person, a spouse, a parent, a business owner, a young person in transition, etc…. 
  • And experiential and integrative approach to anatomy and physiology so that you instantaneously feel and understand the impact of your movement and how it applies to teaching. 
  • With Tina Templeman as a lead instructor of the Be Luminous Yoga Teacher Training, you get the benefit of an integrated approach to anatomy and physiology that means you absorb the information naturally through practice and application.   
  • The Staff: 
    • Michel brings her skills as a powerful educator and facilitator, and a deep passion for designing programs and curriculum that make a real difference in people’s lives.  She has been facilitating transformation work since she was 18 years old, starting with Essential Peacemaking & Peace Trees. 
    • Scott brings over 20 years of meditation and yoga practice to the training, including having complete multiple 10-30 day silent meditation retreats.
    • Tina brings her powerful teaching of yoga, coupled by her study of the human body as a massage therapist, creator of anatomy and physiology components for multiple teacher trainings in the Pacific Northwest.  She is also a Reiki master and had facilitated non-yoga transformational work for since 2002.

How many people will be in our teacher training?  We limit the number of participants to 32 people, with a staff to student ratio of 1:8.  We require 16 people at a minimum to run the program.  While many applicants will be accepted, not all will be.  You must have practiced yoga for at least three months before applying to this training.   

What is the pre-requisite work?  Anyone is eligible to apply for teacher training.  Once you are accepted, you will be given your pre-requisite work, which mainly consists of reading, anatomy study and reviewing a few classes at various studios before we begin.  This is about 30 hours worth of work that you complete on your own in any way that works for you.  We recommend making the initial Application Deadline to have the most time to complete your work.

When will I hear if I am accepted?  Applications for 2015 will be reviewed and accepted within one week of each of the posted application deadlines.  At this time, you will be sent the enrollment agreement.  Upon recepeit of your enrollment agreement, you will receive an acceptance letter, a welcome packet with your pre-requisite work to begin, and we will charge you based on your application preferences.

What if I need to miss a session?   If you already know you will need to miss more than a day of training, we recommend that you wait for the next training.  It is a requirmeent of the Yoga Alliance that you receive a minimum number of contact hours for the training to apply for Yoga Alliance Certification.  It is also quite challenging to parse out the time you miss into make-up time.   Any hours missed must be made up at an extra expense of $50 per hour (this is significantly less many other teacher training programs).  We will always work with people for family emergencies and other issues that may arise.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does this training prepare me to teach that other trainings may not offer?   We are committed to empowering you to teach NOW, not with 3 more years of practice under your belt.  In order to achieve this, you will have many teaching and feedback opportunists each weekend.  Of particular interest, the Be Luminous Yoga program offers you three opportunities to teach on video, receiving feedback from two coaches each time.  By the last time, you will teach a full 1-hour class.  Second, you will teach a small section of a live class of 40-60 people on the weekend of graduation.  Most programs offer small bits of feedback on individual poses or 5-10 minutes of teaching.  We believe you need to teach real people in real settings for longer amounts of time in order to be ready to teach.  We offer you a unique and fabulous opportunity to grow quickly with our system.
