Fall 150-Hour Yoga Teacher Training, Level 3
September 30 – October 21, 2019 | Jackson Hole, Wyoming
Take your Yoga practice and teaching to the next level. You have built your foundation and now you are curious about refining your skills as a practitioner and teacher. This 150-hour Intensive Training will expand the horizons of your experience of yoga. You will be immersed into daily practice of pranayama, asana, meditation, mantra and devotion.
You will be guided by Phoebe Pilaro to advance your understanding of anatomy through a clay anatomy course where you will build approximately 80 main muscles onto skeletons. A functional Anatomy course will be guided by Audrey Smith to further solidify your understanding of the bio-mechanics of movement.
In addition you will receive the knowledge and support of Senior Iyengar Yoga Teachers Eddy Marks and Mary Obendorfer in a weekend long workshop at the end of the training. The psychology and philosophy of Yoga using Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra will be taken to the next level as you dive deeper into exploring the gems of this text.
This training will focus on refining your experience as a yogi and teacher as you clarify your language, adjustments, sequences and ability to see students more clearly to better serve their practice.

Iyengar Yoga with Mary Obendorfer and Eddy Marks
About Mary Obendorfer & Eddy Marks:
Mary & Eddy are Senior Iyengar teachers certified at the Advanced level. They teach worldwide as well as train and assess teachers for certification. For decades they studied with the Iyengars in India, living there for a year in 2003 and seven months in 2009. Guruji’s original and transformative approach to yoga inspires them to guide students with clarity and precision from the skin to the soul. They co-direct the BKS Iyengar Yoga Center of San Diego, which was established in 1979.
Anatomy in Clay Course with Phoebe Pilaro
In this course we will use “manikins” (3 foot tall skeletons) to build the main muscles of the body with clay. This is a teaching technique used in most medical schools around the country to teach anatomy, because the the effort of molding the muscles with clay and attaching them to precise points on the skeleton teaches the shape, function and attachment points of each muscle.
By building the muscles with clay, one gets a deeper knowledge of anatomy than by rote memorization, or even by coloring in a book. After this intense 15-hour course, students will really “know” the muscles of the body.
About Phoebe Pilaro:
Phoebe Pilaro attended the Iyengar Yoga Institute in San Francisco from 2000-2002. She acquired the first two Iyengar certifications in the years following. Iyengar Yoga is strongly focused on alignment and classical yoga philosophy. Phoebe has continued her studies to include Ashtanga and Vinyasa Yoga, and her love of the human body led her to her studies of Anatomy. She developed a middle and high school course called “Yoga and Anatomy,” using clay to build muscles, and has gone on to teach Anatomy In Clay for yoga teacher trainings. Phoebe believes that yoga helps us to connect to our deeper selves through our bodies, allowing us to tap into our own source of joy and to explore our unique potential.
