Futher information about the training from Cyndi Lee:

OM Yoga Teacher Training will teach you how to teach yoga with clarity, compassion and confidence.  OM Yoga Teacher Trainees study and practice every category of asana, learning how they and why they work, the anatomy and benefits, how they relate to other poses, how to create logical sequencing, how to make hands-on and verbal adjustments when, why and with whom!   And that’s just the beginning!
Teach from Day One.  Unlike other teacher training programs, you’ll apply what you learn right away, taking turns leading fellow students through sun salutations, standing pose sequences, inversions and inversion preps, seated work and short meditation sessions.
Going Deeper.  You will also receive a thorough grounding in anatomy, specifically applied to yoga; Buddhist study and practice; Yoga Sutra study; guidance in class planning; use of props, and inquiry into what it really means to be a yoga teacher.
Expert Mentoring.  Cyndi works closely with every student to help them find their “voice,” through developing language skills, vocal awareness and confidence in their own wisdom.  You will learn to trust your instincts and know when to speak and not speak, what to say and not say and best of all, you will get loads of practice to help you become comfortable in front of a class.
OM Yoga Teacher Training grads are qualified to register with Yoga Alliance and join the international network of OM yoga teachers in Turkey, England, Mexico, Japan, Thailand, Germany, Sweden, Greece, South Africa and, of course, New York City!
I will constantly guide and support you every step of the way.  We are all so lucky to have met up with the precious teachings of yoga and to be able to share them with others is truly a gift.  It is my honor and pleasure to share with you what I have learned from my teachers.  Write me at  I look forward to meeting you!
