As you’ve probably experienced, yoga has the potential to transform peoples lives. We deeply believe that in order to transform lives through the practice of Yoga, we must have realization through not only learning it… but LIVING it.  As a Yoga teacher, you will share who you are; People will feel that, be moved and inspired by that. More than just perfecting physical postures and learning how to teach people to come into certain shapes, in this training program we excavate ourselves, diving deeply into the timeless culture, teachings and traditions of Yoga in a way that is easily accessible and practically applied, so that we may move into the role of “Yoga Teacher” from the deepest place.

As a graduate you will head into the world confident and ready to lead grounded, safe, and inspired Yoga classes. You also learn how to offer modifications, posture options, clarification of contraindications, and how to create classes with progressive levels of difficulty.

“This training was above and beyond anything I could have imagined from a Yoga Teacher Training. It was actually a course in how to live. It not only taught us how to teach but how to deepen our own practice so that we become what we are teaching. I feel confident and inspired to share Yoga and also have a much deeper understanding of myself and my purpose in the world. The guidance, wisdom, technique, and love that is shared through this course is unmatched. I leave here with open eyes, an open heart, and overflowing with joy.” - Danielle S., Business Owner

“This training was a life changing experience for me. I learned more than merely the correct way of doing yoga postures; I learned the very essence of yoga itself.” - Jennifer T., Nurse Practitioner

“The experience is incredible! It’s like having a community of support around the most important aspects of our life. We laugh and cry, create incredible friendships with the foundation of Yoga holding us; we explore life’s deepest questions with some of the most qualified teachers; teachers not only with knowledge, but real EXPERIENCE through living the life of Yoga. It’s fun! It’s powerful. It’s transformational. It’s most likely one of the most important investments of your life.” - Diana P., Consultant
