Why Spry?

The Spry Mind+Body methodology was developed by Kate Doran to meet the growing need for powerful yet safe and medically informed yoga classes for older students.

Kate began teaching seniors in 2009 at the Senior Citizens, Inc. in Savannah, Georgia. After almost ten years working with seniors she decided to bring her experience and knowledge to a larger community and developed the Spry Mind+Body methodology.  This method brings together the principles of Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga and the Integrative Yoga for Seniors Professional Training at Duke Integrative Medicine.

Adults over 55 are the fastest growing segment of the population and the fastest growing segment of the yoga market. Our Spry Mind+Body teacher training program will equip you with the tools, knowledge and sequences to deliver a powerful and safe class to seniors and/or those struggling with illness or injury.

Next Level Learning

Spry Mind+Body's unique teacher training program is focused on in-depth learning, individualized coaching and personal growth. Our student teacher ratio is kept small so that we can provide each participant with concrete coaching and real time feedback.

Our program is based on a proven methodology developed at our sister studio, Savannah Power Yoga. In this program we will be offering content specific to teaching Spry Mind+Body classes, as well as some content that is applicable to both programs.
