COLYNN VOSBURGH
ADVANCED 300 HOUR

Colynn Vosburgh E-RYT 500 started her journey in the healthcare field in 2000 while simultaneously also beginning her path in yoga. Moving through the ranks of uncertified Home Support Worker, Care Aide, Licensed Practical Nurse and then Registered Nurse, all within the Emergency Department, she thought she had found her place in the world. After years of service, being overworked and underappreciated, Colynn experienced burnout and decided that being a doctor was likely the answer to it all… She applied to and was accepted to Medical School and coincidentally also did her yoga teacher training. She immediately recognized that Med School was not the answer, but felt locked in due to family support and an incredibly large student loan. Colynn journeyed through it all, starting a yoga business while raising a family, while working as a nurse and becoming a doctor. Little sleep and an incredibly packed schedule, brought her to a place of committing to a path, and she chose the path of yoga. She decided to leave medical school and retire from nursing and put all of her energy into yoga and eventually coaching others in life and business. As life does, continued challenges of empty nest and new relationships brought her to the point of selling everything and starting on the nomadic path. Continuing on this path, Colynn spends a majority of her time in Costa Rica, loving the ocean, the jungle and most importantly the people.

The path of yoga and coaching has brought Colynn’s western knowledge and clinical experience to meet with her eastern yoga philosophy and chakra work to create her very personal and individually tailored offerings. She is filled with joy to offer anatomy lessons, yoga classes, past life regressions and facilitate teacher trainings to support awakening however that looks to each person. She has taught over a hundred Yoga Teacher Trainings and has thousands of hours of Yoga Training to support on this path.

program goals

This transformational Yoga Alliance (YA) accredited 300-hour Yoga Teacher Training Course is designed to advance your yoga education by building upon the foundation of your current 200-Hour Certification. Upon successful completion of the training program, with your YA approved 200-hour certification, you will be eligible to apply for your 500 RYT.

The Foundational Pillars of This Training Include:

1. Experience – to be in integrity as a teacher it is important that you practice what you preach. Therefore, to teach, it must come from experience. Allow yourself the space to let go of the teacher role and fully immerse yourself in the practices and the healing that takes place in surrender.

2. Exploration – to be a successful and skillful teacher, one must be authentic and knowledgeable. Exploration coupled with personal feedback supports each teacher in finding clarity in their life, their offerings and their business. 

3. Integration – In teacher training we are able to retreat from the ordinary and assess, reassess and/or create a plan of action. Imperative to a successful landing back in your everyday world post yoga teacher training immersion, is integration. More than just learning and experiencing the practices, together we will create a tool belt to support your integration back into your current teaching, your personal yoga practices and how to also share these tools with clients and students.

4. Clearing – all of the coaching, practices and teachings in the training are chosen and arranged in a specific order to support and launch you into the next chapter of your yoga inquiry and career.

This training is unique because not only does it follow a specific curriculum, it has the space to tailor the training to suit your wants and needs in your personal practice, your teaching practice and your business. You will receive individual feedback on your current teaching style and we will discuss how to make your presence, classes and offerings more aligned and authentic.

Practicum hours allow space for us to co-create the direction of your focus in the training. You will be teaching classes, meditations and presenting a final project based on what you want to incorporate into your teaching (or personal practice). Eg. If you want to focus on Yin & Chakras, your classes will incorporate your focus into them and the presentation could be the outline of a retreat you want to run or if you want to coach people through the chakras.

We look further at finding a completely balanced teaching and personal practice by:

  • Focusing on, experiencing and diving deeper into Vinyasa Yoga (important for cardiovascular health), Hatha Yoga (important for strength building), Yin Yoga (important for exercising the stretchy tissues) & Restorative Yoga (important for healing).

testimonials

The Frik-Shuhn Yoga 200hr YTT was absolutely amazing! I came to yoga with nothing more than a curiosity and desire to increase my physical movement. This YTT not only satisfied my curiosity, but taught me so much about myself, relating to others, and inspired me to dig deeper into the path of Yoga. I felt that the online platform and having the 200hrs spread out was an excellent way to learn as it gave me the chance to really let the teachings sink in and I was able to integrate them into my life. Colynn is an excellent teacher; her knowledge, life experiences and transparency created a space in which the physical and conceptual teachings of Yoga were available to everyone and not just those who fit in a guru box or a yoga clique. Colynn also had the students sequence and theme our own classes as well as write our own meditations which I think makes better students and better teachers. I can say with absolute honesty that this YTT totally transformed my understanding of Yoga and has inspired me to make Yoga a part of my life and to share my inspiration with others! So freaking great!

I wanted to do a 200 hr yoga teacher training “someday”. I figured when the kids were older and I could travel and take a month away, I’d do it then. The most amazing opportunity presented itself during the pandemic. Colynn was hosting a teacher training in Costa Rica and just as it was about to start, the world came to a grinding halt. She made the decision to provide the teacher training over 10 weekends online. THIS, I could do! So, my someday had arrived! I worried about being the least experienced or “bendy” and was also nervous about doing the training online. How effective would the posture labs be without hands on assistance? Well, I can assure you that Colynn’s strong verbal cueing is the only assistance you’ll need. She teaches in such a way that you feel and understand the postures in your own body, with a focus on the functional versus aesthetic. She would remind us that the goal was not to aim for a “look” but instead to aim for the feeling. This direction lends to an atmosphere of body acceptance and makes it easier to learn. I was so focused on being in my own body that it didn’t matter what I looked like compared to someone else. Colynn’s strong anatomy knowledge from her experience in nursing and med school is a HUGE benefit. As students in a yoga teacher training, our goal is to work with people and their unique bodies. Having a strong understanding of anatomy will be an incredible asset to you and to your students so that you can teach safely and effectively. I had so many “ah ha!” moments during this training and I credit Colynn fully for igniting a passion to dig even deeper into anatomy and functional movement. I’ve completely changed the trajectory of my life by taking this training and am now deep into the anatomy and functional movement rabbit hole and loving it! There’s so many positive things I can say about my experience in this training, but I think the most important to mention is Colynn’s gift of coaching. She is more than a yoga teacher. She has the ability to guide you into a deep awareness of who you are and what might be holding you back. The reason I am teaching now is due to a breakthrough, another “ah ha” moment of realizing I am worthy. Worthy of living the life I’ve always wanted to live. This was a life changing shift of consciousness that would never have happened without Colynn’s intuitive guidance. I highly recommend her training & coaching. It will be the best investment you can make in yourself.
