//general training info

In this training students will explore classical Yoga texts and practices that enrich the mind, body, and soul. This knowledge and experience will provide you with the tools necessary to build and support a thriving yoga practice. Expect to be inspired through this process and leave with the ability to effectively guide others on their path of yoga, allowing you to give back to your community!

This program is designed with a comprehensive and interactive approach that dives deep into classical Yoga traditions, modern yoga research and applications, and helps the student develop techniques that can be employed to further the understanding of his/her own nature. The mission of this program is for you, as the student, to understand how to use yoga in your life and how to inspire others to use it in their lives. You will learn how to properly structure classes and how to teach those classes in a manner that produces an experience we all need and desire.

This teacher training program’s objective is to provide the community with well-trained, knowledgeable, safe Yoga instructors who will inspire the individual student on the path of Yoga. This program is not a fitness training, but rather a comprehensive curriculum designed to engage the student in all aspects of the classical Yoga tradition as well as introduce them to current Yoga research and applications. This training meets and exceeds all the requirements put forth by the Yoga Alliance, the industry standard for Yoga teachers and schools. For further information on these requirements and registered teachers and schools, see www.yogaalliance.org.
