Self Inquiry & Self Care: 300 Hour Teacher Training

Immerse yourself in the practice and study of yoga with us.

If yoga could be summed up in one phrase it might be: notice what you notice. The heart loves nothing better than to experience the dance of remembering itself, noticing itself, awakening to curiosity. We go on journeys to deepen this recognition. The practice of yoga shows us the small mirrors that reflect the wisdom and vastness of the heart within our bodies, energetic perceptions, thoughts, emotions, intuitions, and sensations. On each of these layers yoga offers us skillful tools to say “oh, there you are” to our deepest places.  The body is where the practice starts, and from there we overflow into wholeness, for as it is said in yoga: higher than the body is our senses; higher than our senses is the mind; higher than the mind is our intelligence; and higher than our intelligence is our heart.
Let’s explore.

“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
