2020 Teacher Training – Old

Hello and thank you for your interest in our 200+ Hour Teacher Training!

Because of the difficulty we face meeting in groups during this time we have redesigned our fall program and changed the date to be able to complete the training primarily online.

Our 200+ Yoga Alliance-accredited hybrid training
is a rich study of yoga philosophy and practice.

We will use Zoom, pre-made recordings, and our time in-person (at the end of the training) to share the same rich teachings we would offer you in our regular, in-person training.

Twelve weeks provides time to unpack
both the foundations and more subtle aspects of the practice.
We will explore safe alignment and anatomy as applied to asana,
historical foundations, psychological aspects of the practice,
finding and developing voice,
and how to hold safe space for yourself and others.

With contributions from a diversity of well-seasoned teachers,
we offer many methods and perspectives
on how to deepen your understanding of Self
and develop as a teacher.

We begin the 12-weekend journey online on August 1, 2020 and will meet virtually on
Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays through the end of September.

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 training is Yoga Alliance certified.

We’ll offer:

*the fundamentals of leading an in-depth and balanced yoga practice.

*how to instruct and offer basic hands-on and hands-off adjustments.

*subtle nuances of sequencing movements, music, talking points and poses.

*input from a traditional and eclectic variety of veteran teachers offering their insight, wisdom and experience.

*the difference between a self-centered class and a class centered on Self.

*basic anatomy: How the body functions best, what roadblocks it confronts
and a variety of tools to meet these roadblocks.

*Introduction to Yoga philosophy and psychology in it’s “original” form
and via it’s many interpretations over the millennia.


If you want to spend 12 weeks exploring the yogic life
of inquiry and movement, health and true fitness, please join us.
