Jane's House Basic Teacher Training Program is designed to give aspiring teachers the necessary knowledge, experience, and technical tools to teach a yoga practice that meets the multifaceted demands of today's practitioners. In 2005, Jane's House became an affiliate training school to Matthew and Holly Krepps', Circle Yoga Shåla Teacher Training Program, being one of the first Registered Schools in the St. Louis region. Our program is directed by Robin Buck, a dedicated student of Matthew, privileged to carry on this gift of training teachers using the curriculum that has been refined for years and from the lineage of Matthew’s teacher, Godfrey Devereux.

Jane’s House teacher training curriculum is derived from the work of Godfrey Devereux. Mr. Devereux teaches something called the dynamic Yoga method. Mr. Deverux’s teaching is not to be understood as a new “style” of Hatha yoga. It is essentially a way to organize and experience the actions one takes within practice. That organization itself is also set within the context of the Yoga Sutra. After many years of practice (of various kinds), Mr. Devereux has endeavored to formulate a set of basic principles that can be taught to students in the beginning of their training to give them a way to gain autonomy in their investigation of Yoga (largely in respect to posture practice, but not totally).

Jane's House training curriculum has recently been revamped to take advantage of adult learning methods. This methodology is also taught to attendees by trainers experienced in those methods. Yoga is a transformational practice and as such requires teachers who can anticipate situations in which boundary or ethical issues may arise. A session on such is also included in the training. Other topics of interest include, but are not limited to: Pregnancy and other special populations, studio and financial management.
