yoga school: teacher training

yoga school: teacher training

been thinking about teacher training? we have, too!

we designed our 200 hour RYT training as a start-anytime, go-at-your-own-pace program, allowing you to choose your adventure. complete all the program hours to earn your teaching certificate…or take just the workshops you like for your own enjoyment.

we’ve developed a three-legged approach to teacher training. GROUNDING modules teach the foundations of physical practice; CENTERING modules develop your understanding of yoga off-the-mat; and in our EXPRESSION modules, you’ll learn to teach…and teach to learn.

GROUNDING

skill curriculum for every body

great teaching begins with a deep understanding of your subject matter. our GROUNDING curriculum focuses on developing your understanding of on-the-mat vinyasa yoga and meditation practice.

our 200 hour teacher training program is built on 50 hours of GROUNDING curriculum. workshops include:

// FLOW 101*

inspired teaching starts with inspired teachers. our CENTERING curriculum takes you beyond the mat into the studies of anatomy, physiology, history, philosophy, and language, helping you develop your unique perspective on the practice.
