Teacher training programs

Join Tam Burke, Taylor Johnson, and guest teachers on a journey into the practice of yoga.

Come with an open heart and a commitment to deepen your practice.

This program welcomes all practitioners, including those ready to teach, and those who would like to deepen their personal practice and knowledge of yoga without the intention to teach.

Our training is more than the physicality of yoga, as we will dive deep into the roots of yoga, and apply these ancient teachings to your practice and daily life. This training will go beyond teaching you how to become a yoga teacher, and will encourage you to step out of your fear-based stories to empower you to step into a practice of self love – this training is a journey within. At SOL 19 we believe that our spiritual journey is never a destination but a consistent evolution.

SPRING 2022 YTT DATES LISTED BELOW

Early Bird Pricing ends December 1st

Our 200 hour program will concentrate on Power Vinyasa, however this training will introduce you to other styles of yoga so that you may step into a lifelong practice. Tamara and Taylor are well versed in Power Vinyasa, but have comprehensive trainings in Ashtanga, Rocket, Acro and Yin Yoga.

Each day students will live their yoga through meditation, breathwork, practice, group discussion, lecture, workshops, practice teaching, and more.We’d like to ensure you that not everyone who joins our programs want to become a yoga teacher, however we will equip you with the tools you need to explore your own practice and the ability to guide others through flow. 

This program is a wonderful reminder, that above all else we are ALL students of the practice, especially if you desire to teach afterwards.

Common Roadblocks

and why they shouldn't hold you back

If you have the desire to deepen your practice and learn more about yoga, then you are ready for this training. No amount of experience can prepare you for your first YTT.

This is like when people say I can’t do yoga, I’m not flexible enough… but that is why we go to yoga! The same applies for YTT – how will you advance your practice without training? This program has NO requirement for physical capabilities.

If not now, then when?

There is never a perfect time. You will figure it out. The one constant about life is that it’s always changing. If you feel ready now, figure out a way to make it happen now.

We will let you in on a little secret.. almost no yoga teacher we know could attend every moment of training. We know life is busy and we will work with you to make it work.

This is very common – but our programs are designed to help you deepen your personal practice, afterall Yoga Teachers are just students who have committed to being students for life. This teacher training has an incredible emphasis on personal evolution.

We offer at least one scholarship for $500 off tuition – we believe that yoga should be accessible to everyone. Please email info@sol19yoga.com for additional information. 

We also offer payment plans and are happy to work with you.

Dr. Matt Lyon

Anatomy & Yogic Texts

At SOL 19, Dr. Matt is a key part of our yoga teacher training program, leading coursework in yoga philosophy and anatomy.

The first thing you will notice about Dr. Matt is a passion for what he does. Dr. Lyon had numerous physical and emotional traumas while growing up in Vermont. At the age of 11, he was introduced to a local chiropractor who helped him with his asthma, anxiety and pain. Once better, he wanted to help heal others, not just through body mechanics, but also through energetic healing and self-actualization. Soon after he began meditation and practicing yoga. He started teaching others at age 16.

Dr. Lyon holds a Master’s Degree in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. He has the highest degree of certification in Network Spinal and Somato Respiratory Integration. He is certified in Applied Kinesiology, with over 600 hours of training. He has studied with Dr. Donny Epstein, Dr. Walter Schmitt, and was also deeply and personally impacted by his time and work with a Spiritual Master from India. He was initiated into profound breath practices and ancient meditation practices – all of which date back some 5,000 years. Dr. Lyon has taught meditation and breath work for nearly three decades.

Jesse Seymour

co-lead

Jesse is an E-RYT 200/RYT 500 and has been practicing yoga and meditation for over a decade. However, in the last 5 years he has deepened his commitment to daily practice and self inquiry in an effort to truly transform as well as emerge into a state of empowerment and kindness. Now, for Jesse Yoga is home. A sanctuary to feel an authentic connection to oneself, to nature, and to be free of the clutches of the restless mind. It is through this discovery that Jesse has chosen to share his love and passion for yoga with others. Under the tutelage of Gina Caputo (Colorado School of Yoga) Jesse received his 200 RYT and ultimately a great foundation with which to offer an integrated Asana practice.

A former surfer and drummer, Jesse brings a unique and inspiring approach to teaching Yoga. He offers a strong invigorating practice delicately balanced with effort and ease in the true spirit of Hatha Yoga. Jesse emphasizes alignment and grace as well as breath throughout his classes and uses creative sequencing to keep you present and focused. With humility and curiosity he remains devoted to refining his practice and experience so that he may bring the best possible offering to his students.

Anna

Anna Rosenstengel

Intern

Anna, a St. Louis area native, found yoga in high school and since then has been practicing nearly everyday. She initially came for the physical practice after growing up playing tennis and running. However, she quickly realized that yoga is so much more than the poses. Anna became hooked on the sense of mental clarity and serenity she felt after a yoga class. In 2018, Anna moved to Colorado to study Psychology at CU Boulder. She found her home away from home at SOL 19. In 2019, she graduated from SOL’s 200 Hour Training and currently plans to continue in the 300 Hour Program. Additionally, she has learned Rocket and Hot Yoga styles. Anna loves yoga for the mental clarity, healing, and physical strength it brings to her life. Her intention is to empower her students to live their yoga on and off the mat.
