200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training

The 200-hour teacher training is a beginner program. It can be valuable for students interested in teaching or looking to deepen their personal practice. Even though it is a beginner teacher training program you should have some experience with Yoga prior to attending. Having a broad understanding of what Yoga is, beyond exercise is critical for you to have the best experience. You will also find that committing to a supportive lifestyle will greatly improve your experience. 

This program surpasses the standards set by Yoga Alliance. Students can expect an in-depth look at yoga postures and techniques with one on one instruction to help them grow their personal practice. We will also study the history and philosophy of Yoga. I will also share my personal tips and guidelines for sequencing classes. I like to keep it light hearted but I think you will find that I am very serious and excited about yoga, so you can expect to work hard. Be prepared for a combination of challenging flow classes mixed with sweeter more therapeutic classes, homework, and practice teaching sessions that start right away.
