More About This Yoga Teacher Training

Due to the nature of our current lives we are breaking our 200 RYT TT down into 3 modules run in 5-hour increments throughout the year on Sundays. Module 1 is a prerequisite to understanding the basics of becoming a teacher. A student may sign up to module 1 without wanting to become a teacher and only for self-development or perhaps as a refresher in practice.

Before continuing to modules 2 and 3 this module 1 must be completed.

This training while meeting all the traditional requirements of a 200hr RYT program is set up to honor the body through an in-depth understanding of movement, nutrition, and self-care using all the tools of the science of yoga.

Our Instructors

Jennifer Vafakos

Managing Director and Owner

Through fortuitous events, Jennifer stepped into her first yoga class on the lower east side of NYC at Bhava Community Center more than 10 yrs ago and fell in love with the sweaty and energetic vibe. Not her mother’s yoga or her classical ballet background, she realized it was something so much more… Classes are an offering of healing, laughter, playfulness, fun, and adventure colliding with mindful alignment, dynamic sequencing, breath-work, and yogic philosophy.

She is the manager/owner of Inlet Yoga and co-lead for Inlet’s 200hr RY

Gerald Saluti

Co-Lead and Senior Instructor at Inlet Yoga

Vinyasa Yoga Instructor

Gerald Saluti is first and foremost a student of the movement of the human body. With a background steeped in athletics, Gerald molded his passion for movement and his study of anatomy into a dedicated yoga practice.

He took his first yoga class over 10 years ago and was drawn both to the physical and spiritual aspects of yoga. Intrigued by how yoga made him feel and in order to deepen his own practice, Gerald completed his first teacher training. He attended numerous yoga workshops, festivals, and events and eventually could not ignore his burning desire to teach yoga.

Allison has been practicing yoga since the late 1990s. In 2002, she began to focus on alignment-based forms of yoga through the study of Anusara.
