Is this course for me
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.
Summer Intensive: Designed for those who want an immersive experience, you can expect rich and full days. We will gather from 8:00 AM-5:00 PM Monday to Friday over four consecutive weeks. There will be homework and class observation assignments to complete outside of classroom hours. We recommend clearing your calendar so that you can dive deeply into this intensive program during the week and rest on the weekends!
