Rodney Yee began his Yoga inquiry in 1980. In the same period he was a ballet dancer for the Oakland ballet and a physical therapy and philosophy major at UC Berkley. His yearning for a life that would utilize mind, body and spirit was satiated by the practicing and teaching of Yoga, which over the years Rodney has been instrumental in introducing to the United States. His appearance on Oprah in 1999 helped catapult Yoga into the mainstream. Other highlights in his long career as a premiere Yoga teacher include the co-owning of Piedmont Yoga Studio, his vast output of videos with Gaiam, and his eloquent workshops around the world.
Rodney's illustrious teaching career has flourished worldwide, but has for years been centered at both his wife Colleen's studio, Yoga Shanti in Sag Harbor, and at Yoga Shanti New York City, where he is a founding partner. Since 2001 he has partnered with his wife and with Donna Karan on Urban Zen Integrative Therapy, which encompasses the five main modalities to bring us into the present. Looking back at his long and influential career, and seeing his grown children, makes Rodney wonder a bit wistfully, ...how long did I blink?
THE FULL SCOPE OF YOGA: A JOURNEY INTO ASANA, MEDITATION & PRANAYAMA
Yoga has long been recognized as a spiritual and physical journey to experience life directly and be at peace. To further your journey, spend this weekend exploring asana, meditation, and pranayama with two of the nation’s most respected yoga teachers: Colleen Saidman and Rodney Yee.
We start with practices designed to slowly open the body, and then turn up the heat with asana. Finally, we cool down with restorative poses, pranayama, and meditation, leaving the body as stretched, happy, and relaxed.
Through our practice, we also enhance the natural physical rhythms while learning how to listen to the body. We explore practices to release tension and restlessness so we can be present in our life with vigor and a sense of calm.

300-HR ADVANCED TRAINING: WINTER-SPRING YOGA TEACHER TRAINING IN SAG HARBOR WITH COLLEEN SAIDMAN YEE AND RODNEY YEE
About this Program
Colleen and Rodney are excited to offer a 300-Hour Advanced Teacher Training Program this upcoming Winter-Spring in their hometown of Sag Harbor, NY. Additional Lead Faculty Includes Tracey Toomey McQuade, Sarah Halweil, and Liz Ilgenfritz
A 300-hour advanced training builds upon and deepens the trainee’s understanding of the fundamental concepts of the practice and teaching of yoga that are taught at the 200-hour level. A 300-hour advanced training prepares you to teach principles and techniques of yoga that are more advanced, more detailed, and subtler. It also enables you to teach with greater skill than could be reasonably cultivated from just a 200-hour teacher training. Learn more.
This teacher training is designed for students who have already completed a 200-hour program, and are looking to dive deeper into their study of yoga and further their teaching skill set. Together, we will work on enriching and strengthening your personal home practice. We’ll examine the principles of Shanti-style sequencing in a range of categories; explore an advanced syllabus of yoga asana; and look more deeply at seeing and understanding bodies to practice a wider range of hands-on adjustments.
Tuition for this program is $4,500 If you apply by November 4th. The price thereafter is $4,250. To apply for this program, please review the full rpogram details and submit an online application. Please email email@example.com with any questions.
Prepare to discover new products and collaborations for Spring 2017.
