YOUR RYT INSTRUCTORS

Susan Dusho

Yoga Instructor

Susan Dusho has been teaching yoga for 9 years and practicing for a decade. She teaches the basic fundamental shapes that a practitioner will focus on in any yoga class.

Mark Zimmerer

Yoga Instructor

I love being able to help people sink into a deep, relaxed, healing state. Mark’s practice emphases on bodywork, breath work, lymphatic drainage, deep tissue, visceral manipulation, and subtle cranial work.

Training Curriculum

These hours must be a mix between: 1) analytical training in how to teach and practice the techniques, and 2) guided practice of the techniques themselves. Both areas must receive substantial emphasis.

Topics in this category will include, but are not limited to:

  • Asanas;
  • Pranayamas;
  • Kriyas;
  • Chanting;
  • Mantra;
  • Meditation; and
  • Other traditional yoga techniques.

The Five Categories of Asana: The trainee will practice and learn the key poses in each category of asana (standing poses, forward bends, backbends, twists, and inversions) and will begin to develop a relationship to both the form and the function of these different categories.

Maps of Alignment: Trainees will achieve comprehension of the alignment maps for each of the five categories of asanas through observation and experience of how the poses in each category share a common foundation, and how to build upon this foundation.


Topics in this category could include, but are not limited to:

  • The study of yoga philosophies and traditional texts (such as the Yoga Sutras, Hatha Yoga Pradipika or Bhagavad Gita);
  • Yoga lifestyle, such as the precept of non-violence (ahimsa), and the concepts of dharma, and Karma;
  • Ethics for yoga teachers, such as those involving teacher – student relationships and community; and/or
  • Understanding the value of teaching yoga as a service and being of service to others (seva).

*Special Requirements: A minimum of 2 of the above Contact Hours must be spent on ethics for yoga teachers.
