Our 200-Hour Teacher Training Program will give you the confidence and the experience to start sharing your love of yoga with others.
Life has flexed its muscle one too many times and we need a plan, a real practice to support us. It’s said “yoga is the discipline that makes your life work.” This teacher training is that plan. We dive deep into the spiritual and the physical. We learn the basics of the Yoga Sutras. We learn to teach safe well sequenced classes. Most importantly, we come together as a group for this moment in time and share in a way that cannot be described. If you think you are interested in yoga teacher training, then you are ready. It’s not about the poses, it’s about living your yoga.

How to teach a safe and effective vinyasa class
You will gain an understanding of the principles of alignment which when applied create a class for all ages and stages. This includes sequencing and more importantly a method for adapting that sequence to the myriad of situations implied by the word Yoga.
Living Your Yoga
Many people have said that yoga has saved their lives. That it changes people. By deepening your understanding of yoga you will find yourself on the path as Gandhi said of "being the change you wish to seek in the world." In the training we dissect and apply the principles found in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.
On and Off the Mat
During this training you will begin each day with asana, meditation, and pranayama instruction and practice. Each weekend is broken down into alignment, cueing, safety, spiritual principles and meditation. All of these components create an holistic approach to yoga that gives you the impetus to take it off the mat and into your life. You will leave each weekend walking the talk. You will experience a deeper connection to yourself and that vibrant potential that you have been seeking.
Each student will be paired with a mentor who is a YTT graduate to help support them thru the training. In addition each participant is required to 10 hours yoga related of community service.
