What Makes Our Training Different
  1. Teacher Development and Education- Our facilitators have additional  advanced certifications and trainings. We have led over eighteen 200- and 300-Hour Teacher Trainings and graduated more than 175 students. 
  2. Experience- This is more than lectures. You practice and implement what you learn in order to learn as you practice. You will experientially apply your knowledge into live practicum experiences with supportive feedback. Practice teaching, hands-on assisting, public speaking skills make a positive difference in your teaching and leadership both on and off the mat. 
  3. Community- One of the best things about yoga teacher training is to create a meaningful bond with other aspiring teacher and dedicated students from around the community which creates an incredible family of energy, support and learning.
  4. Hybrid- We learned a lot from the 2020 pandemic, and we were proud to be able to pivot our summer teacher training that year to be a virtual experience, creating an online platform for all of our presentations and lectures. Now that we can meet in person again, our online content is used as supplementary to the training, which helps our students in two ways: it cuts down on in person hours, and it gives you the opportunity to learn at your own pace and according to your own schedule flexibility. This makes our training even more impactful and effective, giving you guided learning to complete in your own time so that when we meet together, we can focus our time on the physical practice and teaching. 
Who Is This Training For?

Whether you are a student looking to strengthen your own practice and knowledge base or a current yoga teacher looking to discover new and effective ways of teaching or even someone who is looking for professional development and leadership skills, you will find meaningful and transformative experience in this program. We strongly recommend a minimum of 6 months of a consistent yoga practice before applying for our yoga teacher training.
