200-Hour Teacher Training

A simple and straightforward approach to teaching asana.

In the 200-hour yoga teacher training course, our students gain a thorough foundation to begin teaching yoga. Our program has a strong anatomy and alignment component alongside the traditional yoga philosophy. They will learn to teach asana that will be specific to each student’s body, movement patterns, and mindsets.

The 200-hour teacher training course places emphasis on teaching skills and being able to communicate clearly. From day one, trainees will be given the tools to see and understand, and the guided vocabulary to speak about how the body moves.

The course provides an extensive online resource library, study guides, printed manuals and fun activities to facilitate learning and love for teaching.

The course will not only be an immersion into one’s own asana practice, but also an immediate dive into:

– teaching poses
– learning to sequence intelligently
– instructing with precision
– learning to distill the physical practice of yoga so that modifications and variations can be offered in public classes without sacrificing the integrity of the practice.

Module 1: Align

Module 1 is an intensive 10-day session focused on building communication skills for teaching yoga classes, understanding anatomy as a basis for sequencing, bringing yoga principles and philosophy into daily life, and the business and ethics of teaching yoga.

This module covers the foundations of yoga teaching. It is highly recommended for all—practitioners, prospective teachers, current teachers, as well movement practitioners and fitness instructors who want to integrate yoga into their skill set.

Module 2: Refine

Module 2 is spread over five weekends, and aims to explore twists, backbends, forward folds, and inversions in great detail. It is focused on refining teaching skills by looking at the body and understanding its needs, and utilizing appropriate props and adjustment techniques.

This module seeks to refine and build on a yoga teacher’s existing set of skills. It is open to curious practitioners who would like to deepen their practice with awareness and intelligence, but is largely aimed towards prospective teachers, recent training graduates, and current teachers who are curious about new strategies that can be valuable additions to their teaching toolkits.
