Yoga Teacher Training

with Angie Never

Now accepting applications for March 2021

Hi, yogis.  As some of you know, I've spent the last nine months guiding my mom, Marilyn Hay, through yoga teacher training.  It has been a truly special experience because my mom and I started doing yoga together in 1998 at her suggestion, and now we've come around the wheel to find her ready to start her own donation-based class series through Sacred Shimmy Studio Online this January.


Having been able to work with my mom in this way gave me solid ideas about what I really have to offer in the crowded world of yoga teacher training programs and also helped me see where I need to finetune to create a program for a larger group.  I've incorporated the curriculums I wrote for other studios, updated with the work I've done individually since to create a program that I feel truly prepares you to stand in front of the yoga classroom as teacher with your own unique voice.


Here is what I can offer:

  • a program truly founded in body positivity, from my own experience of living in a plus-size body and working primarily with larger bodies in my teaching practice

  • a program devoted to really preparing you to teach

  • a program grounded in traditional yoga philosophy, but with a modern eye to social justice and emerging wisdoms, and space for your own personal lens and experience

  • clear, clean, consistent feedback

  • an online format with both live and pre-recorded sessions that allow you to participate on your own schedule and from anywhere in the world

  • the sense of humor and dose of reality that is infused in all my teaching, allowing us to keep nonsense to a minimum and stay with what's necessary, intelligent, and purposeful.

  • a small class size to allow me to give everyone an abundance of attention


Here is the type of student I'm looking for:

  • yogis with at least a year of practice experience.  While it will be refined throughout the course of study, the development of your personal practice is not the focus of this course.

  • students seriously interested in developing themselves as teachers

  • students able to organize their time to complete the program in 9 months.

  • students who agree with Sacred Shimmy Studio's mission statement

Training schedule (tentative, likely to change as program details are finalized)

  • Training classes

    • Every Thursday, 7-9 PM, from March 4 – November 18.

    • First Saturday of every month, 12-3 PM, from March 6 – November 13.  

  • Group asana practice: Every Sunday, 12:30-1:45 PM, from March 7 – November 14.  

  • Homework – 1-2 hours per week. 

A few additional details:

  • Program will run from March - November 2021

  • Program will be held online.  All sessions will be recorded.  Some sessions will require live attendance, others may be accessed at the student's convenience.

  • Program is currently scheduled to take about 230 hours.  The standard for yoga teacher training at this time is 200 hours.

  • Program will be offered on a sliding scale of $2000-2500.  You pick how much you pay, no questions asked.  Monthly payment plans available with no upcharge.

  • In the event of a large number of applicants, priority will be given to current yoga students


If this sounds like something that's compelling to you at this point in your life, please fill out the form below to start the conversation with me.  I look forward to hearing from you.
