This Yoga Alliance certified 200 hour teacher training will give you the techniques you need to deepen your personal yoga practice, the skills required to teach others in 4 different styles of yoga, and the courage to share your wisdom with the world.


200 Hour Vinyasa, Hatha, Yin, and Restorative Yoga Teacher Training


Description of the retreat

You will gain applied knowledge in anatomy, yoga kinesiology, intelligent alignment, beginner to advanced asana, and the art of assisting. Begin or deepen your meditation practice with daily mindfulness sessions and a one-day silent retreat. Tap into the wisdom of ancient yoga philosophy and explore the practical application of these ideas to our modern lives and practice. This course will ignite your passion for yoga, develop your voice as a teacher, and give you the confidence to craft classes that motivate and inspire others from a place of experiential wisdom and embodiment of the teachings.
This training is appropriate for serious students who are ready to start teaching, or for those who are simply interested in deepening their knowledge of the philosophy, skills, and principles of the practice on all levels. If you have already taken a 200 hour teacher training, this program will shed new light on what you have already learned and deepen your understanding of all aspects of the practice. No matter what your intention, you will come away with new insights, experiences, and ideas about your body, your life, and the world around you.
