200 Primary Yoga Teacher Training
Philosophy– It is the primary intention of our trainings to educate our students on how to create a learning environment that encourages safe proper alignment within the limitations of their students, a non-judgmental atmosphere to learn yoga, and how to encourage growth physically, mentally and spiritually.
This 200 hour training consists of an Anatomy Workshop which is open to the public and the completion of Tracks 1 and 2.
Track 1 is for those students or current yoga teachers who wish to learn more about anatomy, philosophy, postures, advanced breathing techniques, alignment and basic adjustments.

Track 2 is for those who are serious about teaching yoga, promoting a healthy lifestyle and wish to learn about the business of yoga, how to construct a class to teach to various populations.
