200 HOUR FOUNDATIONS YOGA TEACHER TRAINING

For the Love of Yoga: Deepen your practice and teach what you love

PROGRAM SCHEDULE

10 Weekend Immersions

February-June & September-December

Fridays 5-8pm • Saturdays & Sundays 9am-4:30pm

Training overview

Are you ready to deepen your yoga practice?  Are you curious about the mysteries of why yoga works? What is your passion for yoga, and what is it you wish to share with others? Our signature program will fuel your love for the practice and give you the tools to teach what you love.
Embarking on a 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training is a transformative process where you will gain a broad understanding of the foundation and practices of yoga. Dive into the living traditions of yoga and explore how this ancient wisdom remains relevant in our modern-day life. There will be many explorations about the physical asanas of course, and, you will also gain understanding about other layers of your being including the energetic, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies. There will be ample opportunity to explore the art and science of yoga through the lens of your own practice, and from the lens of being a skillful yoga teacher. Most valuable of all, this program of self discovery is an invitation to dive into the depths of who you are.  You will leave this program having learned more about yourself and will gain tools on finding greater inner peace, love and freedom.
Each of the 10 immersions in our Foundations program is highly interactive and well rounded. Each weekend will include philosophy, discussion, alignment-based asana theory, practice, and pranayama (breath and breath-work). During each teaching skills workshop you will learn and practice tools that support you in cultivating your voice and presence in the seat of the teacher and be equipped to lead classes that are rich and inspiring.

If you are a curious yogi, then the short answer is YES! Our  program is for anyone who feels a calling to embark on a journey as a yogi. This program covers the foundations of philosophy and methodology while inviting you to dive deeper into the world of yoga as a practitioner and teacher.
Love for learning:This course is for you if you are an experiential learner who is  willing to question limiting beliefs, challenge your comfort zones and examine your life through the loving lens of curiosity.
Prerequisites:A passion for yoga, an open mind and willingness to challenge yourself are all that you need. We welcome all lovers of yoga, whether or not you have the desire to teach (though you may surprise yourself!).
Existing teachers:Many teachers (ourselves included!) end up taking at least two 200-hour teacher trainings. It is so worthwhile to revisit subject matter after already having explored it, and/or there will be subjects you didn’t explore in your first training.
Time Commitment:
Our weekend immersions are designed to build upon each other. Each intensive weekend has enough space in between to integrate your learning. Homework and monthly class observation assignments will be given between sessions and are required to be complete in order to qualify for a 200 Hour Foundations Yoga Teacher Training Certificate.
