Our 235hr Yoga Teacher Training and Intensive teaches a synthesis of yoga styles with an emphasis on asana, bandha, mudra, pranayama, and meditation, as well as a rich study of yoga philosophy, history and lineage.

The faculty teachers have studied in the traditions of ParaYoga, Tantra, Ashtanga, Vinyasa Flow, Iyengar, Ayurveda, and energy medicine, as well as a variety of meditation styles.

The program is a registered school with Yoga Alliance. Upon completion of the program students will receive a Certificate of Completion and can apply for registration with Yoga Alliance as a Registered Yoga Teacher at the 200-hour level (RYT 200).

Prerequisite: 12 months of being a yoga student at any yoga studio or program.

Thorough comprehensive instruction and an inclusive class setting, I received an excellent education through the school’s Summer Teacher Training Intensive. The core and guest instructors have the experience and know-how to provide incredible teachings that encouraged me to both pursue a career as a yoga teacher and also further my education. I couldn’t recommend the school more highly.
