Level 1 Teacher Training: Pittsburgh

  • Amazing Yoga South Side 1506 East Carson Street Pittsburgh, PA 1520 (map)


SEPTEMBER 23-27, 2019

This Level 1 Yoga Teacher Training provides you with both a framework for teaching power vinyasa yoga, and the freedom to explore deep within. For more than 20 years, Amazing Yoga has dedicated itself to supporting over 1,500 students along their paths to becoming yoga teachers. Whether you are looking to deepen your own practice or teach professionally, our Yoga Teacher Training Programs have been created to support people in pursuing their passion of teaching yoga, changing their lives and changing the world.


Amazing Yoga Teacher Training contains one of the most effective and practical training methods available. Our Yoga Teacher Training allows you to access your full potential through asana, meditation, practice teaching and self inquiry. The focus of the training is to produce confident, safe, powerful, and natural teaching. You will also learn sequencing, alignment, philosophy, assisting, the business of yoga, and much more. By the time the 5 days are over, you will be ready to teach a powerful and dynamic class.

Amazing Yoga Teacher Training is designed to provide an environment where your own unique understanding of yoga materializes out of your direct experience, and you become confident in sharing it. This initial training will help you establish a solid foundation as a yoga teacher for years to come — one that you can continually build from and grow as a teacher and person.

Karen has always been inspired to help people reach their full potential and face their challenges with courage and integrity. After graduating from Fordham University, she began her teaching career in the public school systems where she later went on to work with high-risk teenagers putting them through challenging situations in the rugged outdoors of Canada where they were able to reach their highest potential.

Karen infuses her joyful, high-energy classes with her belief that we can best serve others and heal ourselves through this dynamic and transforming yoga practice. Karen is a highly experienced teacher and and has led workshops and teacher trainings for over 16 years around the world. Karen was inspired to teach power vinyasa from her first teacher, Baron Baptiste. She has trained extensively with Baron and is a Certified Baptiste Yoga Teacher and is an Accredited Yoga Alliance Teacher Trainer.

She has devoted her life to assisting her students along their yoga journey. “Yoga for me is a practice that insists that I continue to take a closer look at how I can create change and balance in my life. I use that as a platform to inspire others to really invest in their own lives and to get passionate about themselves and all they have to offer.” 

Sean has been teaching yoga for over 15 years and first discovered it after a four-year stint in the NFL after he suffered an injury. Sean began practicing power flow yoga due to back and hip injuries caused from overuse and overtraining. He has found yoga to be healing in many ways and not just physical. “The mental peace that yoga offered was unexpected, but it was the driver to continue and eventually take up teaching.” Sean began his training with Karen in their living room, then took up more formal trainings with multiple teachers, including Baron Baptiste and other talented vinyasa yoga teachers. Sean is an Accredited Yoga Alliance Teacher Trainer.

He is the co-author of the best-selling yoga book, “Amazing Yoga: A Practical Guide to Strength, Wellness, and Spirit,” and is also the soon to be released book, “The Kicker ." Sean has taught to thousands of students at their studios, including doing specialized yoga work with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
