Requirements For Students

A minimum of 12 months yoga practice experience is recommended. However, trainees are not required to perform advanced asanas. This program is for anyone interested in deepening their understanding of yoga.

Be prepared to commit and work hard during training session. But also plan to spend time outside of the classroom practicing, reviewing training lessons and completing non-contact hour assignments.

Teaching yoga is not something you “do”, but something you “live”. This program allows you to completely immerse yourself in the process. Finish the program with the ability to teach an effective vinyasa yoga sequence

Why You Should Take Teacher Training

You will leave training with the tools and ability to guide a class with skill, leadership and knowledge. This program prepares you to lead an all-levels yoga class – beginners to experienced students. You will learn to weave a perfect blend of technical knowledge and philosophy that speaks directly to the students, while still keeping the pace of the class.

Often there is a disconnect with our practice on the mat and how it translates to helping us off the mat – through study of the Yamas and Niyamas you will not only awaken the connection for yourself but guide your students towards connection as well. Emphasis will be on how to apply yoga philosophy and principles not only in teaching, but also in every day living.
