This course welcomes all dedicated Yoga students, whether you are learning to teach Yoga, immersing yourself in your own personal Yoga practice, or advancing your understanding of Yoga.

Course Philosophy

This Course blends contemporary science with classic Yoga philosophy, history, and ethics. You will discover how to incorporate this powerful knowledge into every aspect of your life, practice and your teaching. This knowledge will broaden your understanding of Yoga and open you to a transformational experience for your body, mind, and spirit.

This Course provides a basic and solid foundation that gives the graduate the knowledge, skills, and confidence to begin teaching safely and mindfully. You will learn to teach Yoga by expanding your own personal practice and your relationship with Yoga.

We encourage students to “Awaken the Teacher Within,” to explore, trust, and use their own inner resources, to develop their own teaching style and connection to Yoga.
