What you'll learn

Our signature Yoga Teacher Training allows you to connect with a community of like-minded yogis to enhance your passion, dive deeper into personal growth and reach a broader range of students. 

This Training is both for those wanting to dive deeper into their Yoga practice, as well as those excited to share the practice and guide others. You don't need to be flexible or be able to hold fancy poses to participate - come one, come all! In this community based learning environment, you'll get an opportunity to collaborate with others and receive love and support from this shared, sacred, safe place.

History & Philosophy

Yoga is an ancient practice with a long, compelling history. As a teacher, it's important to know what you are teaching and understand where it comes from. The foundation of our program rests in the 8 Limbed Path, and the teachings of the Yoga Sutras. We'll dive deep into the history of Yoga's evolution, from its origins in the East, to its modern manifestation here in the West, and how we use these ancient teachings to address our real life in modern times.

Poses & Practical Anatomy

Yoga Asana (postures) become accessible when we have a basic understanding of how the human body works. Our program takes a common sense approach to learning basic human anatomy, so you can truly embody the intentions behind each pose, and empower others to do the same. You'll develop the skills to be a helpful and inclusive teacher, by first learning how to curate your own Yoga practice.

Teaching Skills

Learn the intuitive art of Adaptive Sequencing and how to lead an effective and inspiring Yoga practice. We'll introduce you to the basics of how to lead group classes and private sessions in styles like Hatha and Vinyasa Flow, as well as foundational tools for Yin, Restorative, and Prenatal Yoga. You'll also get an opportunity to deepen your own mental well-being by learning to practice, and teach, key meditation and pranayama techniques.
