200hr Teacher Training - Yoga Alliance Certified


Before learning how to teach yoga to others, we believe that it is imperative to nurture a daily practice. Support in strengthening your personal commitment to a regular practice is at the very heart of our Yoga Alliance Certified 200-Hour Teacher Training. With a strong emphasis on the instruction of vinyasa yoga, we will guide you through a well-rounded immersion into a yogic lifestyle. We will provide you with the tools to deeply and safely connect to your own practice in both a class setting and through self-practice. Expect a strong focus on basic anatomy principles in order to safely and purposefully sequence poses together to create a practice with depth and intention.

We will combine the wisdom of our strong and diverse team of experienced teachers to assist and mentor you along this introspective path that will solidify your relationship to your own practice, deepen your understanding of your body and other bodies and provide you with the building blocks to share your passion for yoga.

Participants of our program will spend ample time instructing beginner/intermediate level classes to fellow trainees. Graduates will have the skills to teach a 90-minute beginner level vinyasa yoga class.

Our 2019-2020 Teacher Training Program begins in October and runs through June. We will meet for one weekend each month.
