What will I learn? 

Our Teacher Certification Training provides you with a strong foundation of principles, practices, sequences and techniques to add an entire methodology of movement skills to your teaching, enabling you to reach out to new populations. Grounded in abundant information about anatomy, physiology, modifications, benefits, contra-indications & precautions, you will learn to safely and effectively guide students in the Sky Styx methodology for 3 distinct curriculums:

 1. Fitness Styx:

The Sky Styx system of movement develops strength, flexibility, balance and endurance through movement patterns practiced in 5 core positions: standing, sitting, kneeling, prone & supine. Sequences include:

Joint mobilization patterns
Strengthening patterns

2. Sky Styx Yoga:

Sky Styx can deepen most asanas in ways you probably have not experienced before, with increased safety, deeper penetration, and more relaxed holding. This methodology will be applied to asanas in 5 core positions:


3. Chair Styx:

When Styx meet chairs, amazing things happen. New possibilities that were never before available now seem easily doable. With Styx in hand and a chair underneath, greater range of motion, more stability, increased confidence, easier balance, upper and lower core strength and even greater delight and fun – essential elements for a consistent practice – emerge.

How will I be supported? 

Small Classes:
Attendance is limited to 18, ensuring abundant teacher-student contact and plenty of space.

Experienced, Skillful Teaching:
Christopher has been leading yoga classes and workshop for over 40 years and delights in sharing the experience of Styx and Yoga with others. He is with you every step of the way.

During teaching sessions, between classes there is ample opportunity for students to help each other understand, experience, refine and communicate.

In this way we learn, share and teach each other, building deep and lasting friendship as well as collegial relationships. Often the aftereffect of the training is even more powerful then the course itself. Being part of a community of teachers is often one of the most satisfying and enriching dimensions of the entire training experience. Having yogi friends you can trust and turn to for suggestions, perspective and inspiration for practice and teaching is at the core of our precious time together.

 Marketing Resources:
Access to our array of Sky Styx photos, music playlists and marketing copy to help you describe and promote this cutting edge methodology to your community.

A Teacher Locator Map on our website will enable prospective students to find a Styx teacher near them.

Bulk Discounts:
All Sky Styx products are available at bulk discount rates to our certified teacher.

For those who have a 200-hour teaching certificate from a Yoga Alliance-recognized school, a Sky Styx Teacher Certificate will be given to those who successfully complete the course.

Playful focused fun:
We learn better in an atmosphere of relaxed, spacious, kindly determination. The entire training is held with a light heart, attentive mind and open, energetic engagement.
