Training students to be teachers and teachers to be students
The Surya Chandra Healing Yoga School (SCHYS) Yoga Therapy Certificate Program is based on and honors the teachings in the lineage of T.Krishnamacharya and Mr. T.K.V. Desikachar.
JJ Gormley, SCHYS Director, began offering teacher trainings in 1994 through Sun & Moon Yoga School in Arlington, VA. In 2009, Sun & Moon Yoga School became Surya (sun) Chandra (moon) Healing Yoga School.
We offer training programs designed for students seeking an opportunity to delve into the knowledge and experiences of yoga taught through the highest levels of innovative teachings. Our curriculum is based on traditional yoga teachings as gathered from the ancient texts.
The SCHYS Advisory Board is comprised of yoga teachers, students, and other professionals who are a part of the organization, maintenance, and planning for SCHYS.
Ethics Review Board
The SCHYS Ethics Review Board is comprised of yoga teachers, students, legal, and medical professionals. This Board is in place should a student wish to lodge a complaint against the School.
Ethics Review Board members change bi-annually. Students enrolled in any of SCHYS' training programs may contact Barbara Sager, School Administrator, should the need arise: firstname.lastname@example.org.
SCHYS is a Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga School (RYS) for the 200-hour, 300-hour, Yoga for Children, and Prenatal Yoga programs.
