Chrissy Lefavour will lead trainees through the following categories of study:

Practice/Technique, Anatomy/Physiology, Philosophy, Teaching Methodology and the Grateful Yogi. This training program offers yogis who are new to the program to start and complete the 200 hours in 4 weeks. Pre-enrolled Grateful Yoga students may choose to join in for 1-3 weeks, gaining 45 hours of training each week.

Training days will be Mon-Fri with the weekends free for island adventures, relaxation, reflection and/or excursions.

Two organic farm-to-table meals (breakfast and dinner) are included daily. Accommodations are a shared room with one other yogi, every room has a ocean view balcony, small fridge and bathroom (private rooms are available at an additional cost). Vegetarian, vegan and other dietary needs can all be met! Onsite there is a restaurant, gym, pool, circus school, water sports and the hotel is literally steps from the beach!!! Another reason we love the eXtreme Hotel is their commitment to sustainability and supporting the local Dominican community.

Why the Grateful Yoga teacher training? Grateful Yogis are students for life. We teach what we love in the spirit of both sharing and learning with the world around us. Our asana practice is both physical and spiritual, combining the foundations of Ashtanga, breath + bandha + drishti, with different styles for a well rounded and dynamic practice. Our old-school orientation attracts students who are self-motivated, driven by love and open to the experience of yoga.

I took this training in April 2018, it made me feel like a real yogi and feel able to pass on my knowledge to other people. Chrissy gave me self confidence and gave me the confidence and knowledge to practice my yoga every single day and teach; it was also a great human experience that made me meet inspiring people. Thank you very much Chrissy!

I started my YTT in the summer of 2017 and finished in April of 2018. I had been practicing yoga for about 5 years but was looking to really enrich my own personal practice as well as gain experience for PA school. I had known Chrissy before and it just felt like the perfect time and place to begin my YTT! It was so nice to be able to let the training fit into my life schedule, and I was quickly shocked to realize how fast my yoga practice and knowledge grew. 

The Grateful squad, put quite simply, is amazing. I enjoyed the teachers and the classes but it was also so nice to be surrounded by like minded people searching for insights into their own body as much as I was. I am so thankful for this experience, it has really changed my perspective and brought my life to new and beautiful places.
