Immerse yourself with us in the practice and study of yoga.
There is a vastness to Being that most of us have not been incentivized to explore. We instead have been trained to acquire things in order to feel alive. Every day we’re reminded of the transitory nature of things and the suffering that comes from attaching our identity to items and ideas about ourselves that come and go. A yoga practice’s primary function is to liberate us from false ideas casting illusionary shadows we live in constant fear of. Let’s explore.
Our Yoga Alliance-accredited hybrid trainings are a rich study of yoga philosophy and practice, in an online and in-person format.

“I found the content accessible, deep, clear and I feel like I’ve learned and grown significantly both as a yoga teacher and as a human being.” R. L.
“(This training) was a rich mix of practice and lecture, which included a tremendous assortment of both physical and energetic yoga…business, and a lot of fun.” S. C.
“I practice yoga with a deeper listening to my body than I did before. The training taught me that to practice yoga it is necessary to really listen inward so that we don’t injure ourselves or push past our limits too much, and also to move through emotional and spiritual territory that is important to the whole of the practice. The fact that our skeletons are all different, our spirits are all unique, means that our practice can be what we need, not what we think it should look like. Also, learning more about the philosophy of yoga, the yamas and niyamas, and all of the wisdom our teachers had to share was completely life changing. It helped to deepen my practice of yoga not only on the mat, but also in all things I do.”~ Katelyn B. Class of 2020
“The Yoga Soup training was the most impactful training I’ve done. The instructors are experts, the content made me want to never stop learning and my personal practice has grown immensely. I look forward to getting on my mat everyday with this new knowledge!! Thank you Luca, Cynthia, Kendall, Eddie and others!!!”~ Mycah K, Class of 2020
“I appreciated each teacher’s particular engagement with the philosophical material, the principles of alignment, and the principles of teaching yoga. The sessions on subtle body (the bandhas and the chakras) really validated some watershed experiences I have had in the practice, experiences I had previously thought were a little nutty, to say the least – these sessions in particular aroused a deep appreciation, a kind of reverence, for the vast alchemy of resources for self-healing and self-transformation the yoga practice provides. In terms of the experience in practice teaching gained from the teacher training, the practicum weekends and the final evaluation exercise were very helpful, particularly the feedback I received from my peers and the teacher trainers!”~ Emily C. 2019
