As more and more studios open, there are great opportunities for growth, but along with many studios means condensing class types. There has never been more of a need for teachers who are qualified to teach to a wide variety of levels in the same room. This is what you will learn through LIYS. We specialize in teaching the ‘True Open Level Flow™’, a very specific way of sequencing, cueing and offering modifications that keeps the class moving with fluidity while meeting each student where they are. No one is left behind or feeling the need to play catch up and everyone gets the amount of challenge they crave –  a perfect recipe for very happy students!

The techniques offered in this training were developed over a 10 year period and have been perfected and simplified to offer you an easy to follow format that takes the guesswork out of how to sequence, cue and theme but leaves enough room for your teaching voice and style to shine through.

  • Quality Well-Organized Program – We provide you with a solid foundation to build upon. Some trainings offer quite a bit of variety of yoga styles and subjects that can not be covered properly in a 200 hour training. Rather than confusion, we offer you workable knowledge and show you how to utilize it in class themes, meditation classes and workshops.
  • Rise Above The Competition! – Our graduates go on to work in successful studios all through-out Nassau, Suffolk county and Queens as well as open their own studios. In addition, during auditions for potential jobs, graduates from Long Island Yoga School beat out the competition every time.

About my teaching style:

I love to teach – Whether it is students who are looking to deepen their practice or students looking to become yoga teachers. There is nothing I would rather do.

In my group classes the most important thing to me is safety. The sequences build gradually from easier to harder postures utilizing the muscle groups needed for the ‘peak’ postures. This allows the body to gradually warm up and become familiar with the movements needed to achieve the edge of your posture safely.

With the focus being on specific posture alignments not only is it an intellectual learning experience, but ‘muscle memory’ kicks in and your body learns how to move into that place easily because it is familiar.

In my teacher trainings I utilize all the different ways people learn – visual – auditory – kinesthetic – so no matter what type of learner you are, you will absorb the material presented in the best way for you.

In the 200 hour yoga training program you will learn a very specific way to sequence. There is a format you will learn to follow which gives you the ability to create well -rounded themed-based classes that seem like you have been teaching for years even as a brand new teacher.

The 300 hour yoga training program builds onto this format making room for more creativity and individuality.

How I explain this is the 200 hour training gives you the skeleton and the 300 hour training gives you the different outfits to dress up the skeleton. But it all begins with a solid foundation.

Yoga is a life long journey with so much to uncover about the practice and ourselves. Enjoy the journey and see all the treasures you discover along the way!

“I took part in the Long Island Yoga School’s 200 hour teacher training in 2010. Before registering, I met with Laurie Ahlemann to discuss the training and I knew immediately this was the perfect match for me. Laurie is amazing and the whole vibe of the studio is very welcoming. Laurie and the other teachers simply radiate positive and joyful energy, and trully do everything they can to be as available as possible to each and every one of their students. LIYS provides a very intense program that pushes you outside your comfort zone and helps you dive inward to discover things about your ‘True Self’ that you may not have known. This is a highly spiritual training that will really make you think about how you live your life and what kind of energy you want to present to the world. You will leave as not only a well prepared yoga teacher, but also a more enlightened soul, with a better and deeper understanding of yourself. Overall. you will walk away changed…for the better.  – Joanna D. -2010
