Leap up a level.

Join Patrick Montgomery & Jeanie Manchester for an extraordinary 300 hour teacher training!

10 months: September 2015 - June 2016


Broaden your skill-set, advance your practice and gain tangible knowledge which you can immediately apply to your teaching. This Advanced Yoga Teacher Training is for those who have already earned their 200 hour certification and are ready for more — both personally and professionally. This is a 10-month program that fosters camaraderie where we grow and learn together. We gather once per month for a 3-day weekend, which allows each student to integrate and practice the material. Each weekend includes practice, lecture, practice teaching and incredible guest teachers. This 300-hour program is for anyone seeking 500-hour Yoga Alliance certification.


Establish yourself more in the tranformational practices of asana, inquiry, meditation, pranayama, mantra and ayurvedic habits. 

Break free of formulaic teaching. Find the confidence to innovate. Effectively reach every level of student. Cue with clarity and creativity. Touch and adjust with sensitivity, support and insight. Sequence intelligent classes that are energetically balanced, rythmic, flowing and get students into peak poses safely. Share stories and teachings that inspire students to be their best and look at life with an illuminated perspective. Cultivate soft skills to truly connect with your students, helping them feel seen and supported. 

Understand and appreciate what complex, layered, extraordinary beings you and your students are. Delve into the esoteric, subtle side of yoga. Further your understanding of the physical form with advanced applied anatomy studies. Explore somatics and learn to hold a psychologically sound yoga classroom.

Learn through multiple educational approaches: exploratory, kinesthetic, visual, reading, writing, discussion and, of course, by teaching! We invest a lot of time on peer practice teaching, projects and presentations. You will learn a lot from each other. Practice, study and teaching objectives will be assigned each month for you to work on at home and in your public and community clases at Yoga Loft. Set some of your own goals based on your values, teaching style and areas for improvement. Receive unconditional support, compassionate and contructive feedback and one-on-one mentoring. 

Deepen the conversation about how yoga’s ancient philosophical teachings relate to the modern householder path of yoga. Learn sanskrit and mantra theory. Find your own story within vibrant, mythic tales of love, heartbreak, courage, and change. As a major boon, we have invited SALLY KEMPTON and PAUL MULLER-ORTEGA to our training!

As a certified 500 hour teacher with Yoga Alliance you are poised to become a teacher’s teacher. Get the tools and insider’s tips to truly have the career of your dreams.

Jeanie Manchester brings more than 30 years of dedicated practice, deep study, teaching and sharing onto the mat and into the world. An ERYT 500-hour certified yoga instructor, Jeanie's inspiration and influence stems from a strong lineage of celebrated teachers, including Dr. Douglas Brooks, Sally Kempton, Richard Freeman, John Friend and Paul Muller-Ortega. Jeanie's own studies include the disciplines of Iyengar, Ashtanga, Anusara (certified) yoga, Neelakanta Meditation, and the Shri Vidya Goddess Wisdom of South India. With a background that weaves modern dance, yoga, meditation, storytelling and spiritual teaching into her work today, Jeanie brings a sense of true mastery that empowers her students toward physical and spiritual growth. With the Colorado mountains, husband and two children as daily inspiration, Jeanie wears her various hats with humor and joy and brings a sense of lightness into the depth of her teachings and work.

Patrick Montgomery's steady pace, creative sequencing, clear cues and personal encouragement help students move deeper into their body with greater awareness. Take his class and you'll get a revolutionary look at alignment and flow, explore peak postures and deepen the conversation about how yoga's teachings on topics such as love, acceptance or spiritual recognition relate to our everyday lives.

Patrick has been teaching for 14 years. He taught abroad in Sydney, AU and Ubud, Bali, where he realised his heart was at home in Colorado and got clearer about what "success" meant to him as a yoga teacher. He feels most fulfilled as an everyday, local yoga teacher. He adores the familiar faces of students who show up, week after week, to make progress on their path of yoga.

Patrick is an accomplished teacher of yoga teachers. He is part of Kindness Yoga's teacher training faculty and has led trainings and workshops globally. He has taught on several 200 and 300 hour programs. Known for his intelligence, organisational and creative problem solving skills, Patrick formulates well-rounded curriculums with a reverence for the tradition of yoga that truly prepare aspiring teachers to become successful yoga professionals.

His classes integrate several styles of yoga: deeply rooted in Ashtanga vinyasa, his classes flow with the breath and transition with elegance; integrate alignment principles primarily based on the Anusara® method which he was certified in 2008; and include many modifications and the skillfulness of Iyengar.

Patrick is a dedicated student who has taken seven teacher trainings and countless workshops including Ashtanga teacher training with Richard Freeman, the path to Anusara® certification with Cindy Lusk, Jeanie Manchester, John Friend and Amy Ipolliti, and continues to refine his own practice and evolve his approach to yoga education at YOGAMAZÉ with Noah Maze. He is a dedicated student of Rajanika Tantra with Dr. Douglas Brooks and his yoga classes are richly woven with mythology and philosophy. Patrick bows with gratitude to the great teachers who have guided him on his path.
