Yoga Alliance standards are a measure of professional education and experience in the yoga teaching community.
Yoga Alliance is a globally-recognized symbol of standards-based knowledge in the field of yoga. Registered yoga teachers represent professionalism.
The upsurge in the popularity of yoga and the demand for yoga teachers has emphasized the need for competent, safe instruction and rigorous standards for professional training. Yoga Alliance promotes and maintains standards for training and practice has become a benchmark for distinguishing knowledgeable and well-trained practitioners. The U.S. Department of Labor describes yoga teaching as a rapidly expanding occupation that currently relies on Yoga Alliance standards as a measure of professional education and ability.
You will receive knowledgeable instruction and training focusing on competent, safe instruction and rigorous standards.
You will benefit from being in a small group where individualized attention is the key to learning.

Who Teaches Our Teacher Training Program?
Our 200 hour teacher training program in Concord is led by David Breen, E-RYT 500, Laurie Farmer, RYT 500, Dawn Marquis, RYT, along with Sarah Jane Knoy, RYT 500 and Wendy Bonner, RYT.
David offers Yoga and Meditation at Sharing Yoga in Concord and Nashua, the New Hampshire State Prison for Men, Payson Center for Cancer Care and he directs the Sharing Yoga Teacher Training programs. David is trained through the Himalayan Institute and focuses on using meditation, relaxation, breathing techniques and Yoga to facilitate the healing process. He has been teaching Yoga in the Concord, New Hampshire area since 2002. He is known for his inspiring classes, his sense of humor, and his dedication to the ancient teachings of Yoga. As a graduate of the Bija Ananda Teacher Training Program, he received his RYT designation from the Yoga Alliance in 2004. In 2005 he completed the Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series Teacher Training with David Swenson and in 2006 he earned his E-RYT designation, one of only 3 in New Hampshire at the time. He started the Sharing Yoga Teacher Training program in 2006, and after returning from India in 2007 he opened Sharing Yoga Community Yoga School in Concord. In 2010 he received the designation of E-RYT 500, the highest level of training recognized by Yoga Alliance.
Laurie Farmer is graced with the love and light of her Guru Manorama ji, to whom she offers deep reverence and gratitude. While studying the Path of Luminous Shabda, a path that combines Sanskrit, Meditation and Yoga philosophy, Laurie continues to journey inward and encourages others to also find the sacred sound of our true inner silence. Laurie is inspired by and grateful to her many teachers. She has completed the Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series Teacher Training with David Swenson and Shelley Washington, the Bija Ananda Teacher Training Program (RYT 200 certification) with Tom Sherman, and teacher trainings with Asa Dustin. She has practiced and studied a variety of styles of yoga and continues to learn from her teachers and students. She is fortunate and honored to be able to practice karma yoga through her work in Hospice and is reminded daily of the beauty of life and the present moment through the interactions she has with those who are dying and their family members. Laurie has traveled to India and Nepal to explore sacred and spiritual sites and deepen her understanding of non-duality. It is her daily practice to live yoga “off the mat” and it is her hope that she encourages students to do this as well. “Practice, practice, and all is coming!” -Sri K. Pattabhi Jois
“Try to find the joy in every moment. Contentment shouldn’t be dependent upon our external circumstances. Through our physical practice of yoga we learn this concept as well. Through postures that are connected with mindful breathing we find our limitations as well as our abilities. Asana helps with balance, flexibility, strength and builds body awareness, which is a step along the path of self-awareness. This in turn teaches us about self-care, acceptance, and over time, contentment.” Dawn Marquis has been practicing yoga since 2005 and teaches three weekly classes at Sharing Yoga.
Sarah Jane Knoy:
Sarah Jane is happy that she was fortunate enough to wander in to an Ashtanga Primary series class at a health club in Chicago in 2000. This begin her practice of yoga and she has practiced steadily since that day. Sarah Jane moved to New Hampshire in 2007 whereupon her brother-in-law gave her a gift of enrolling her in the Bija Ananda Yoga Teacher Training Program. She graduated with a 200 hour certification in 2009 from Bija Ananda and then assisted Tom Sherman in leading the Bija Ananda training for a year.
Sarah Jane has been teaching yoga since 2008 and graduated from Sharing Yoga’s 500 hour training last year. Her practice has evolved through work with many wonderful teachers but she remains particularly grateful to Patricia Hyland, her first teacher. From Patricia she learned that needing a teacher was not a sign of weakness but rather a willingness to stretch and grow.
Sarah Jane believes passionately in the healing and calmness that yoga can offer to everyone, regardless of their age or state of health.
