200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training

Barre & Soul Studio, Melrose, MA

(Next Training Dates: Jan-Jun 2016)

Led by Kristy Kuhn, E-RYT 200, RYT 500

Barre & Soul Studio (Formerly B Yoga Center) of Melrose offers a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training and is approved by The Yoga Alliance. This 6-month training covers a broad range of yoga theory, philosophy, and practice, with particular emphasis on the traditional eight-limbed (Ashtanga) yoga system as described in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. Most of our senior faculty members have been practicing, studying, and teaching yoga for years.

Class meets at Barre & Soul Studio of Melrose on Tuesday nights from 7:30-10:30 pm along with 12 Sunday Intensive workshops from 12pm-6:15pm, and 3 two-hour study pod sessions (for practice teaching) running on Sunday afternoons. If you miss a Tuesday night class you can make it up at our sister school on Thursday night – Charlestown Yoga – where they will be utilizing the same program, curriculum, and instructor.  If you need to miss a weekend workshop you can make it up for free the next year of teacher training and receive a provisional certification OR you can make your own arrangements to attend a workshop with the same teacher on your own time and money.  You will find this is one of the most flexible programs in the Boston area.  The workshops are attended by both yoga schools (Barre & Soul + Charlestown) thus expanding your yoga network.

1 year of yoga practice suggested to enroll in this program.

Next Training will be offered January - June 2016.

This course is designed to delve deeply into The System of Hatha Yoga. Classically, Ashtanga Yoga means Eight-limbed Yoga (ashta meaning eight, and anga meaning limb.) We will address each limb and will teach asanas from the Hatha Yoga system. Classes are taught by Kristy Kuhn, a 500 hr certified yoga teacher through YogaWorks, NYC and registered through Yoga Alliance.


The course is designed to:

  • Systematically deepen your understanding of yoga.
  • Develop skills for teaching yoga at a beginner’s level.
  • Deepen your personal practice of yoga.


  • Serious students of all levels
    This program offers instruction in beginning, intermediate, and advanced methods of pranayama (breathing) and asanas (poses). It is ideal for those who want to immerse themselves in an intense discipline either to begin or to deepen a practice. Advanced techniques will be explored in some of the specialty classes.

    For those who would like to teach, or for those who are already teaching, this course is designed to expand your knowledge of the theory and practices of yoga as well as to develop and enhance your teaching skills.

The training has been so amazing. I cannot thank you enough for providing such a warm and nurturing environment for me to learn and grow. You are amazing and will forever influence my development as a teacher and practitioner.
— Paula M.
The B Yoga teacher training has made a huge impression on me. Our practice was very focused during the week on growing our understanding of both physical and spiritual yoga concepts and techniques. The weekends were a blend of specialty workshops with true experts in the field where we experienced many different types of yoga practice. I’m so grateful for the thoughtfulness that was put into the training and how it has helped me to grow as a teacher and a person.
— Stacey H.
