Training Philosophy

It is the primary intention of our teacher training to educate our students on how to create a learning environment that promotes safety, encourages physical challenges, and cultivates self-awareness. In this 200-hour program, we provide a non-judgmental atmosphere in which you learn yoga to either deepen your knowledge and practice or to serve your community.

This training is for students or current yoga teachers who are looking to deepen their knowledge of anatomy, philosophy, yoga postures, modifications, how to use props, advanced breathing techniques, alignment, and basic hands-on assists. If you are interested in teaching yoga and promoting a healthy lifestyle, and you wish to learn about the business of yoga, including how to construct a class to teach to various populations, sequencing, themes, and how to teach different disciplines, then this is the right teacher training for you.
