Are seeking to become a yoga instructor through our program? If so, you will be glad to know that our program is registered through Yoga Alliance and meets and exceeds their requirements.

We are unique in our training in several ways:

  • You can start your training any time, with any module. No need to wait for a specific start date. If you are ready, we are ready for you!
  • You can put your training on pause or go on vacation or for other reasons miss a class and continue at your convenience. This makes our training ideal for those with busy lives.
  • We meet for modules once or twice a month on Saturdays. This makes our program great for those with full time jobs or those who live out of town.
  • We give you time to learn. Your training will take place over 12 months so you have time to actually absorb the information. We find this makes a quality instructor and also improves our students own health and well-being.
  • We offer many different payment options that allow you discounts on our training. Some plans offer the option of unlimited group classes and all offer mentorship with our teachers.
  • We offer more anatomy and science based training than any other teacher training program. This gives you a solid foundation to your teaching and allows you to adapt yoga poses to students based on anatomical principles.
  • We have fun!
