Focus on your area of interest, your passion, and on your practice in this one-on-one, mentorship based training program. Our program offers the time and flexibility to specifically teach and practice your special areas of interest. For example, some students in the past have focused on yoga for seniors, yoga for recovery, yoga for athletes, and even doctors and Therapists have trained with us to provide yoga to their patients and clients. This program is designed for you to learn the process of yoga and how to safely and intelligently teach yoga, meditation, and breathing practices. 

What you will gain with our program:

  • Mentorship, study, practice, and application

  • Learn topics of study essential to safe yoga teaching: foundations and techniques of teaching Yoga, anatomy and anatomy of Yoga, sequencing, meditation and mindfulness therapy, pranayama and refining the breath, Yoga therapeutics and specialized teaching, & Posture refinement, modifications, and adjustments
  • Option to pursue additional modules (in addition to the base 6 required for 200 hour certification) to earn 300 hour teacher training certification: Restorative yoga, yoga Nidra, and Chair Yoga.   
  • While our program is not affiliated with the Yoga Alliance, we go above and beyond Yoga Alliance standards. We focus on anatomy and alignment, so you will receive the best training in this area. Studios are not asking for their teachers to be Yoga Alliance affiliated; they are demanding that their teachers be well prepared and educated.

    Schedule 

    Schedule is based on individual preference and availability. Meeting times are flexible and allow for life happenings and schedule changes. Meeting times can range from 3 times a week to once a month, depending on individual schedules. Meeting times will last no longer than 2 hours. The 200 hour program can take anywhere from 6 - 12 months. 

    Module One covers a wide range of topics, so it can take up to two months to complete this module, depending number of meeting times per month. 

    The remaining modules are more single topic focused, so they will take anywhere from 3-6 weeks to complete, again, depending on number of meeting times per month.

    Most trainees choose to meet once per week, completing the program in approximately 7 months. Meeting times can vary, but the best availability is weekday mornings and early evenings. 

    We are NOT affiliated with the Yoga Alliance. Our program exceeds the standards of theYoga Alliance and offers topics off limits based on the Yoga Alliances "rules." Please see these articles published by highly respected Yoga teachers to explain the negative influence Yoga Alliance is having on Yoga.

    If you are specifically seeking a Yoga Alliance registered school, I highly recommend Yoga For Your Life (my teachers). They are Yoga Alliance registered and go above and beyond the Yoga Alliance Standards.
