I'm so glad you're inerested in a teacher training! I've been practicing yoga for over a decade and I've been teaching for several years. 

I took my first teacher training to deepen my own practice, with no real plans to become a teacher (I was working as a civil engineer at the time) but I loved it so much that I eventually turned it into my full-time job along with nutrition consulting. 

My personal yoga practice has benefitted me so much - it's gotten me through school, through struggles with depression and anxiety, it helped me heal after a series of operations, and it helps me daily to stay aligned with my higher purpose. I'm so passionate about sharing the amazing gift of yoga with everyone!

If you have your own Yoga Story, you'll make an incredible teacher! It's a gift that benefits both the giver and the receiver. Check out the schedule for our upcoming teacher trainings and find the one that's right for you! 
Why Should You Become a Certified Yoga Instructor? Here Are The Reasons...
Deepen Your Own Practice

     In a teacher training, you'll learn not only how to teach, but so much more about yoga including the history and philosophy of the practice, the ancient yogic texts, and detailed anatomy of the asanas.

Know Your Roots

     You'll learn where yoga comes from, how it has evolved over time, and how the ancient teachings are still applicable to our modern lives.

Learn the WHY of the HOW

     If you've ever wondered WHY you're instructed to place your left foot here, and your right hand there, in certain poses, now is your chance to learn! Detailed anatomy is part of every teacher training so you'll have a thorough unerstanding of how the body moves in asana and how to keep your students safe and reduce injury.

Inspire Others

     If you've ever left a yoga class feeling rejuvenated, you know how important the practice is! Now is your chance to join the ranks of teachers bringing people closer to balance, inner peace, and personal strength.

Hold A Reputable Certification

     The Yoga Alliance is the industry standard with regard to assuring teachers receive the best possible training in order to uphold the profession and keep their students safe and successful during practice. 

Assistance Wth Job Placement 

     Part of the teacher training curricula includes resume writing, designing business cards, and applying for jobs. We want to make sure you have the tools to become a successful teacher!

"What you seek is seeking you."

"Body is the Bow, Asasa is the Arrow."
                                                    -BKS Iyengar

"It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge."
                                               - Albert Einstein

We will cover the history of yoga from ancient India through today, including influential teachers & different schools of yoga.

Ancient texts and key yogic teachings have a wealth of information applicable to the modern yoga teacher.
A thorough understanding of the body's mechanics and the scienec of movement is essential to every yoga teacher. Learn how an understanding of anatomy & kinesiology allows you to build intelligent movement into your classes and keep your students safe.
One of the most imporant parts of teacher training is learning how to serve your students fully. We discuss use of language, metaphor, modified poses, and props, as well as how to sequence classes, change the pace or difficulty of a class, and how to assess an individual student's needs.
