OM yoga 300 Hr teacher training with Cyndi Lee

300 Hr TT with Cyndi Lee in 2018:
Training Is Cancelled

The Program

The OM 300 hour Teacher Training program is taught by Cyndi Lee, the founder of OM yoga, an alignment-based vinyasa practice informed by Buddhist meditation methods of mindfulness and compassion.

“Cyndi’s 500 hr. TT was completely life transformative.  The whole energy of how to be a yoga teacher was truly given to me by how Cyndi teaches herself — with a lightness but also a depth of knowledge and truth.”  — Ellie Aaron, NYC yoga and meditation teacher

This advanced training course is for 200-hour certified yoga teachers looking to refine and develop their yoga teaching skill sets, deepen their own physical and spiritual practice and get fresh inspiration!

Often called a teacher’s teacher, Cyndi will offer you multiple refinements of the nuts and bolts of teaching.  More importantly, she will guide you in creating your life as a yoga teacher by helping you dig deeper, so that your own grounded sanity can be of benefit to your students.

“I have been teaching yoga for 12 years and over those 12 years I have often felt burned out and at a loss for inspiration.  Now that I have taken Cyndi Lee’s OM 500 Teacher Training, I feel completely different, completely inspired, and so, so blessed.  If you are even considering it, you must do it.” — Erica Settino, founder, Karuna for Animals

Traditionally, we are taught that to develop and deepen, we need Study and Practice — these are the two wings of the bird and we need both to fly!

The OM 300 TT is structured in three parts:  Sun, Moon and Mentoring, in order to provide a balance of study and practice, and create a clear path toward becoming a more confident, clear, compassionate and marketable yoga teacher.

Certification Process: Sun, Moon and Mentoring

The Sun, Moon & Mentoring sessions each equal 100 hours, including preparation and homework.   Upon completion of Sun & Moon, you will work with Cyndi to develop a personal 100 contact hours mentoring program.  You will have six months to complete your mentoring hours. When Sun, Moon and Mentoring have all been successfully completed and approved by Cyndi, you will receive an OM yoga 300 TT Certificate of Completion.

Either the Sun or the Moon sessions (100 hours each) can be taken separately.  To be eligible to take either or both of these sessions with Cyndi, you must have a 200 hour TT certificate.

The OM 300 training includes two shorter trainings which also can be taken separately:

More Details Coming Soon

The Mentoring Program means that you get to decide what you are most interested in learning within the realm of yoga. For example, you may wish to go deeper into ayurveda or pre-natal yoga or yoga for cancer or yoga for prisoners or pranayama or more anatomy or core training and how it relates to yoga practice or meditation study and practice, etc. Or you may wish to concentrate on strengthening your own asana practice. The options are limitless. You and I will work together to shape your personal mentoring program and then you will write a paper about the work or create a project relating your mentoring work to our training together. The cost of the mentoring depends on what you choose to study, so it can be completely within your price range. You can begin it as soon as you register for the program and we have a chance to talk about it.

“Besides being a wonderful yoga teacher, she is so kind, smart and cool…and frigging funny!” — Dona Piza, Owner, Prana Yoga, Miami, FL

From The Yogis

  • Terri Bender Morrison, Owner, Mindful Motion Yoga, OM 500 TT 2015

    "Cyndi, I feel that my teaching has shifted a bit - sequencing is more interesting and effective. As I was driving home tonight, I thought about the statements of "leaving crumbs" and "connecting the dots". While you meant that for us as direction to be better teachers, I recognize you were doing that for us as well. I believe I am just now processing some of the things you taught this summer. The subtle parts of classes escaped me, but I am getting them now. Thank you for the crumbs, for leaving plenty of space between the dots....I think I see the moon."

  • Zan Margolis, OM 200 TT , 2012

    "The more yoga I experience, the more I realize how special it is that in your teacher trainings you actually teach your yogis how to *teach*"

  • Susan Golden, Studio Owner, Maine

    "Cyndi’s sense of humor and genius teachings have made this OM 500 TT very, very stimulating every minute of the day. I’ve learned so much. I can’t wait to let it all come together and bring this to my teachings and to my life."

  • Natalie Levin, OM Yoga Graduate, OM Warrior Weekend Teacher Training Program 2003

    "I am a graduate of the OM 2003 Warrior Weekend Teacher Training Program.  I had the honor to teach at OM yoga in New York City for several years.  I have since moved to another city and was instantly offered teaching jobs based solely on the fact that I had been a teacher at Cyndi Lee’s OM yoga.  Studio owners in my current city thought so highly of Cyndi Lee’s OM yoga Teacher Training that they hired me immediately and I found and continue to find that my OM yoga Teacher Training opens door after door for me.  OM yoga (practicing there, teaching OM yoga, and learning from Cyndi Lee) helped me professionally in my own yoga-teaching career.  Even more meaningfully for me, I feel that the path of mindfulness and attention to alignment that pours through the pores of OM yoga has influenced me and helped me to soften enough to become more “myself” since I first walked into the OM yoga studio."

  • Jeri Wilson, Studio Owner, Maine

    “I’m Jeri and I’m a studio owner in Maine and I just finished my 500 hr TT with Cyndi Lee. It was an excellent experience, partly because I had been trained primarily in Anusara and I was challenged to think very differently. I found it was very helpful to come back to teach with Cyndi’s influence. She is very, very funny and she will work you and challenge you and you will feel like you have actually gained something really deep from the training.”

  • Jeanie Gasque, Yoga Teacher, South Carolina, OM 500 TT 2015

    "Cyndi's skillful guidance lead me to a greater clarity of alignment based vinyasa.  The yoga combined with the charm of Lynchburg made the Sun Session an unforgettable experience."

  • Gina Callendar, Yoga Teacher, Yonkers, NY, OM 500 TT 2015

    "Cyndi truly follows the middle path and instills that in her teachings.  She combines disciple and humor to create an engaging, thought provoking and enlightening experience.  I had the pleasure of taking her 500 hour OM Yoga Teacher Training.  I have deepened my practice, work to continue challenge myself and never want to stop learning.  I am pretty comfortable teaching, but withCyndi’s guidance I am more confident in my hands-on adjustments and clarity of instruction with my students.  Thank you Cyndi for reinforcing my foundation, challenging me as a student and becoming my teacher.  I hope to continue to learn from you for many years to come.  Namaste."

  • Erica Settino, Founder, , Karuna for Animals

    "I have been teaching yoga for 12 years and over those 12 years I have often felt burned out and at a loss for inspiration. Now that I have taken Cyndi Lee’s OM 500 Teacher Training, I feel completely different, completely inspired, and so, so blessed. If you are even considering it, you must do it."

  • Donna Levenstien, Yoga Teacher, Lake George, NY

    "I am a student of the OM 200 and OM 500 TT. I keep learning from Cyndi Lee who is just a master teacher, every class I take, every hour I’m here she says something wonderful that I can bring into my life, onto my mat, into my classes with my students. As a teacher and a student, I feel enriched every time I’m with her and in her class."

  • Ann Megyas, Actor, Yoga Teacher, , Hospice Worker

    "I’m so glad I decided to take Cyndi Lee’s 500 hr TT. It advanced my personal practice in ways that I could not imagine. There is no pose I am afraid of anymore. It’s advanced my teaching practice, it’s advanced my dharma study. It’s just been a thrilling experience the whole time."
