Program Details:This foundational training is ideal for those wanting to teach yoga or the serious yoga student looking to go deeper by full immersion in the study of yogic practice and lifestyle. You will learn to teach and fully embody Vinyasa Yoga. Our training and asana practice draws heavily upon the principles and tradition of Ashtanga(the original power yoga) and the Eight Limbs of Yoga. In addition to asana practice(observation, proper alignment, adjustments, sequencing), students will learn pranayama, meditation techniques, attend relevant workshops with visiting teachers, participate in community outreach, and complete assigned readings, writings, and assignments. Included will be an introduction to Sanskrit, Ayurveda, Yin, Special Populations and Yoga Therapy as well as the business of teaching yoga, marketing, teaching privates and career options.

Interactive, Small Group Setting. Space is limited to allow for a positive, encouraging atmosphere with individualized attention and mentorship. We will all work and learn together. This is a journey of growth and discovery that will deepen your practice and understanding of yoga and help you to become a highly skilled and intuitive teacher.

Hands On Teaching, Sequencing and Asana.
Learn creative, intelligent and adaptable flows. Classic Hatha Yoga postures will be taught in precise detail including variations and modifications for all levels. Learn to teach different body types and populations with confidence and compassion.
