She is also a Certified YogaKids® teacher and has a certificate from Duke Integrative Medicine for Integrative Yoga for Senior Professional Training. Linda has been dedicated to mentoring yoga teachers for many years and is a teacher trainer in the 200 & 500 hour Prairie Yoga Teacher Training programs.

Linda Troutman instructs the following:
  • Therapeutic Yoga
  • For those who want to work on healing from injury, chronic conditions, or any other issue that needs extra-special attention. Each class will allow you to work within your capacity and be adapted for the needs of those who attend. Give yourself this time to focus on healing your body, mind and spirit.

  • All-Embracing 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training 2017-18
  • All-Embracing is a variation on our 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training for those who prefer a gentle or modified approach to the physical postures. Learn the essence of the classical postures and how to adapt them to support your own personal practice and the individual abilities of others. This variation is ideal for those who:
    • have health challenges
    • prefer a gentler approach
    • want to teach a modified yoga approach to others
    With a special emphasis on making the physical postures more accessible, the overall content of the training is the same as our regular 200 hour program. You will learn how to use the tools and techniques from all eight limbs of Yoga. Our philosophy is non-dogmatic. We offer a contemporary approach deeply rooted in the ancient wisdom of classical Yoga.
