Teacher Trainings

Popular workouts come and go, but effective instruction and good character will always be needed. That is the philosophy The Den trainings are founded upon. Regardless of the type of workout that brought you here, what truly makes our studio special is the principals that Founder Chelsey Lowe has cultivated over 15 years of teaching yoga, sculpts, pilates and spin classes. 

Over the past decade these principals have consistently filled studios, community events and personal training sessions. Across multiple disciplines, in some of the most competitive fitness markets on the planet. She didn't know there was a formula behind it all until sitting down with Den partner Kona Johnson. Who finally forced Chelsey to stop long enough to deduce what she had stumbled upon. 


From those discussions 'The Den Principals' emerged. 


They are likely are what brought you here. Even if you don’t know it. Maybe you fell in love with a signature reformer yogalates series. Maybe you’ve heard people talking about the difficulty of the classes or the welcoming spirit of the community. Maybe you simply saw us online. Whatever the case is, the principals were there. And their effectiveness speaks through the growth and quality of our community.

Learn them so that you can practice living them. Practice living them so that you can apply them. To the Den's signature reformer yogalates, yoga sculpts and spin classes. To teaching your own unique movements in your own space. Whatever your motivation, you will find value in committing time to these principals of effective instruction. 


Ask any of our former students or current employees, there's value here for anyone. Though there's especially value if you want to pursue this training as part of a career in fitness, because as a result of our recent growth we are in the fortunate position to hire almost everyone who graduates. A large, tight knit and growing community of prospective clients awaits.


But joining in the end is completely up to you: our courses come with no restrictions or stipulations about how, when and where you teach. Our only ask is that you work hard, be communicative and practice honesty. The rest will work itself out.  We've been told at times that that can be naive, but that's how we approach things at the Den. We hope in doing so we are staying true to what Wendell Berry calls the Good Work. A way of operating that looks different in every industry, but that shares the aim of being fair and respectful to self and community. For us that's teaching the way we do. 


If you’re feeling called to learn our unique system of principals and connecting with our inspired community, we welcome you. More than that, we encourage you. And look forward to spending time together being students again, in community, with a shared aim. Rebellious act in our fast paced, digital and increasingly polarized world. Though that's what makes them all the more important. We can all scroll viral videos on Tik Tok later.
