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 to learn yoga to either deepen your knowledge and practice or to serve your community.
Track 1 is for students or current yoga teachers who are looking to deepen their knowledge of about anatomy, philosophy, yoga postures, modifications, how to use props, advanced breathing techniques, alignment and basic hands on assists.

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, sequencing, themes and how to teach different disciplines.
