teacher training: a new perspective

chances are you can think of a few hundred reasons why you love yoga: how it gives you space to breathe, allows freedom in your body, and offers the strength to handle anything that comes at you.

are you ready to think bigger?

ready to learn how and why yoga works? to explore the possibilities for living your yoga off the mat? to try your hand at sharing yoga with a world that needs it?

if you’re ready for something like that, our teacher training program is ready for you. best of all, it’s a four-part adventure you can start any time.

here’s how…

ENHANCE YOUR PRACTICE: ALIGNMENT WORKSHOP

this weekend workshop focuses on the physiology of yoga. learn how to align and activate your poses by getting on “the other side” of the mat through hands-on assisting. with anatomy-focused instruction, you’ll learn how each pose works to create strength and freedom. this workshop can be taken any time in your training journey…and it can be repeated as often as you like (we learn something new each time). it’s also a great way to get your first taste of yoga teacher training.

*this training is offered multiple times each year, completion of our 200 hour teacher training requires attendance at all sessions of one complete weekend training, and a written response to the experience. this training was previously called Alignment, Action and Possibility; these sessions ARE eligible for 200 hour certification.*

PRACTICE FOR LIFE: PHILOSOPHY WORKSHOP

this six-week course dives deeply into the philosophy of yoga. you’ll practice yoga three days each week and once a week we’ll meet to meditate and learn together. we’ll study the traditional texts of the Yoga Sutras and the Bhagavad Gita through a modern lens, and you’ll learn how what you do on the mat makes a difference to how you live out in the world. this session can be taken any time in your training process, and we recommend repeating it regularly. it’s also a great place to start your teaching journey. sign up for our next session October 16-November 20.

EMBODYING YOUR PRACTICE: PERSONAL IMMERSION
