We are enthusiastic about training yoga teachers in an individualized and holistic fashion. The training program offers a safe learning environment in which students can interact with the all of the aspects of yoga – physical, mental, emotional, energetic and spiritual - in a meaningful and balanced way. The materials are engineered towards the integration of Yoga based awareness into daily life experience. The program is a place emerging yoga teachers to explore their own voice and perspectives and learn how to create transformational yoga class experiences for themselves and others. Personalized expert and peer mentorship is a key part of the process.
Over the years we have trained more than 1000 yoga teachers and yoga therapists, many of whom are now running their own studios and programs all over the world. Program graduates come from a variety of backgrounds and use the adaptive nature of the materials to integrate what they already know with what they learn in yoga teacher training. This includes workers in the field of Mental Health, Athletic Coaches, Teachers, Corporate Professionals, Small Business Owners, Healthcare providers, Artists, Writers, Energy Workers, Massage Therapists, Stay at Home Parents and more. Many people find us during a time of vocational and/or life transition, and have used what they learn in the program to create a new vision of what is possible in life.
We are continually inspired by how creatively and effectively graduates of our yoga teacher training programs use the tools and teachings of Yoga personally and professionally to effect positive change in the world.
