Sondra Loring and Kelly Kamm

revolutionizing and reimagining yoga

working with the individual and the collective journey to integrate dreams with action and re-imagine yoga teacher training and practice, with Sondra Loring and Kelly Kamm

200-hour Yoga Teacher Training with Sadhana Center for Yoga and Meditation

In this teacher training, expect to have your preconceived notions of yoga and yoga culture lovingly challenged and respectfully altered. Let us help you to broaden the scope of what you think yoga is, and not only to be part of the revolution, but to lead it by example! This re-imagining will be created together, with study, soul-searching, discussion, and small actions done with great heart.

Weekend One: Deep Dive In

Friday, Sept 10th – Sunday,  Sept 12th

Safety and Agreements, Who’s in the Room?, Yoga History, Eastern & Western Anatomy, Strength & Mobility, Movement Explorations, Up-to-Date Cueing, Finding Your Voice

This is the beginning of an on-going journey towards caring for ourselves, our community and our world, through the lens of yoga. We will start with illuminating yoga history and the colonialism and appropriation embedded there. We will look at different views on anatomy, how our own bodies have been colonized, and how we can reclaim them. We will share sequences derived from strength and mobility movement explorations and how we can use language to move yoga forward with fierce attention and radical course corrections. You will be invited to find your voice and ease into teaching with clear preparation, support, and loving guidance.

Weekend Immersion Schedule

Full Yoga Teacher Training includes all 8 weekends. We meet Fri 6 – 9pm; Sat/Sun 9am – 3:30pm (with a 30-minute break at noon); in person and on Zoom.
