Our 200 hour yoga teacher training program is designed for individuals interested in teaching yoga as well as yoga practitioners that want to deepen their knowledge and commit to a consistent practice of yoga. This incomparable program will be a life changing experience.

Our  focus will provide you with the skill set that is required to become an extraordinary yoga teacher who demonstrates an ability to transmit information about yoga to a student so that the student learns and is able to demonstrate greater ability with those tools.  Our teachers develop an innate ability to teach yoga to others as it resonates with them.  With the focus on alignment of postures, process of breathwork and meditation, one gains the skill set to teach people rather than teaching asana.  With a strong foundation of anatomy and physiology from a biotensegral focus including both the gross and subtle bodies, a practice is developed that goes beyond a predetermined set of postures for a balanced body to one that has intention and purpose for any practitioner.
