This program is designed for you to learn the process of yoga and how to safely and intelligently practice yoga, meditation, and breathing practices. You will be a certified yoga teacher upon completion, but if this is simply for you to understand the practice of yoga a little better, you will be able to progress at your own personal growth pace.

Your lead trainer is an experienced, Hatha yoga teacher with over 500 hours in professional training, and more than ten years of experience teaching and practicing. There are many styles and schools of Yoga that fall under the Hatha Yoga umbrella, but your teacher provides attention to alignment, anatomy, and mobility based flow. You will also be able to learn specialized styles of teaching such as Yoga Rope Wall and Aerial Yoga.

We offer a special opportunity to learn foundations of teaching yoga as well as continue to learn advanced applications in teaching yoga. You choose your track, pace, and focus in this training. Our focus is teaching you how to be an educated, safe, and successful yoga teacher while deepening your understanding of the Yoga practice as a student.

  • complete all required book and lecture course work, in studio and long distance

  • complete required group workshops (included in tuition)

  • attend weekly yoga classes (included in tuition)

The training program can be spread out over a time span suitable to your learning pace. Tuition can be broken up into three payments of $800, over the span of 6 months.
