Aligned with Purpose
200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training

MARCH 1 – 27, 2021

Description of the retreat

Alignment is a word we hear often during the physical practice of yoga as we learn to move in ways that benefit our body, breath, and intention. While physical alignment is important on the mat, true alignment transcends the focus of the body.

A deep study of yoga, and therefore ourselves, can help us craft purposeful lives that are in-tune with our most valued beliefs, ideas, and inspirations. In this 26 day immersive training, we will explore alignment – both in the body and the mind, on the mat, and in the world. Finding true alignment with ourselves and creating a life full of purpose and meaning.

The Aligned With Purpose 200 hour YTT is an exploration of yoga philosophy, techniques, and practices that will transform you into a versatile, knowledgeable, and inspiring yoga teacher and practitioner.

In this 26 day immersive training you will dive deep into the mystery and science of yoga through both practical and theoretical approaches. By exploring a range of subjects including the physical asana practice and alignment, the history and scope of yoga, and yoga philosophy, your yoga will take on new depth, insight, and inspiration.

  • Understand the physical postures and how the body moves and functions
  • Study the sacred texts that lie at the heart of the yoga tradition
  • Apply the wisdom of the ancient teachings to a modern context
  • Learn the art of teaching Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin and Restorative Yoga classes for full body/mind wellbeing
  • Develop an inner vibrance as you experience personal growth & transformation
  • Transition from yoga student to yoga teacher with confidence, grace, and clarity

What To Expect
The Aligned With Purpose Teacher Training was created as a three-part practice to integrate body, mind and spirit, which all come together in this in-depth program delivered passionately by veteran international yoga teacher Jess Rose. This comprehensive, broad-spectrum training goes above and beyond the minimum requirements set forth by the Yoga Alliance for a 200 hour yoga teacher training program to give you the tools you need to teach and practice with clarity and confidence.
