We are still training world-changers as we find our way in this new normal. Teaching yoga will never be exactly the same, but the skills and knowledge gained through this training are more relevant than ever before and are applicable in all areas of your life. Our program emphasizes your spiritual development and empowerment. Learn the complete system of yoga so that you can improve your life; become more adaptable and healthy; and gain the skills needed to help others.
We have a plan to run the program according to the normal schedule; but we all realize this is subject to change. We believe there will be a hybridized program of some in-person training hours and online training hours. All programming will be recorded so that you can participate via distance learning only if that is your preference and/or necessity.
This program offers a unique and solid foundation for students and teachers who wish to increase their knowledge, skills and confidence in teaching yoga; deepen their living practice of yoga; and advance upon their spiritual path. This in-depth teacher training draws upon the streams of Hatha Yoga, Kriya Yoga and Ayurveda, as well as the art of skillfully teaching the Santana Dharma (spiritual disciplines designed to awaken us to a life of joy, health and purpose). We will work together to create a sacred space in which all levels of student can participate and study the deeper teachings.
Our training is a 200-hour Teacher Training Program registered with the Yoga Alliance, the national registry for yoga schools. Upon completion, you will be awarded a certificate of completion and you will be eligible to register with Yoga Alliance.
