Yoga Teacher Training
Yoga Citta Vritti Nirodhah | Yoga Sutra 1.2

Selecting a Yoga Teacher Training program is a very personal and introspective choice. One must connect with the curriculum offered and the instructors on some level, of course. However, one must also consider their reason for diving into such an intense endeavor. This program is designed to give you a light overview of some of what a yogic lifestyle can offer. It will allow you to touch on the history and philosophy, practice a connection of breath to movement to develop a personal practice, and offer an opportunity to dedicate time to dive into a personal exploration journey. This program is designed to start you on a path of discovery. We hope that whether you hope to teach, to take a deeper exploration of a path you are exposed to or just to gain a foundation, you will find an opportunity to walk through the doorway of discovery that opens.


There is no doubt that this is an intense journey in terms of time, commitment and financial investment. One should expect to somewhat immerse themselves in personal time not only during training hours, but with personal time outside of the studio as well. A support system who is behind you can be a huge asset before, during and after this program.


Part of our foundation for this program is Yoga Sutra 1.2: Yoga citta vritti nirodhah. “Yoga is the cessation of the fluctuations of the mind.” We hope that you can learn through this connection of mind, body and spirit that you can take your practice off of your mat and into your lifestyle.

Structure for Growth as a Yoga Teacher 

At the 300 teaching level and beyond, one's interests in what they are offering to students is probably shifting--or you just might be looking to go further into your own personal exploration.  As you begin this program, you should consider and prepare to take your study of yoga to a different level.  As teachers, you should immerse yourself in a change in lifestyle and perspective.  We encourage the following personal guideposts throughout your courses, reading, practice, teaching and other coursework:

This 300-hour program is designed with flexibility at the forefront. We have given the program a foundation and structure, and then created a framework which will allow each yogi to choose their own adventure and pace - their own path. There is NO time limit or restriction on completing your 300-hour certification. You may ‘knock it out’ as quickly as you can complete courses, or you may choose to go at a slower pace to suit your current lifestyle (program is could theoretically be completed in approximately 18 months; most programs average at least 1-2 years).

“I knew that this Yoga Teacher Training would be life changing for me but I was just not sure how much. Now, I could not be happier with how it all unfolded. The people in the course were amazing. I left with many lifelong friends. With all the information that I received from the

instructors it has helped me become so inspired to give back. Not only did we learn how to teach others but also how to deepen our own practice. When I was done with the program I felt like I left with more than just a certificate. I felt like I had the wisdom, experience and confidence in knowing that we have the tools to teach others. I am so thankful for this experience and would encourage others to share in this journey!”
