In 2019, I am hosting this yoga teacher training and advanced studies program in the spirit of humility, exploration, and personal growth. Join me for an extra juicy, growth focused, enlightening, and life-changing yoga program.

Deeply explore yoga in a non-intimidating, non-judgmental, and playful environment. Discover what your body and mind need in order to feel well, balanced, and happy.

Find your voice and learn the skills you need to have as a yoga teacher. Take your practice to the next level.

I am looking forward to sharing my knowledge, experience, and passion for yoga with a small group of enthusiastic souls. I promise you personalized attention, private and safe environment, and lots of "aha" moments. Here's what to expect: 

  • Study your own practice and habitual behavior and learn to practice mindfully, safely, and correctly! 
  • Learn about the various branches, limbs, philosophies, and practices that make yoga the powerful tradition that we know and love. 
  • Understand 80+ yoga poses and their effects.
  • Learn how to adjust, modify, and enhance postures for better alignment and effects. 
  • Study yoga philosophy and historical texts like the Yoga Sutras for personal enrichment.
  • Find out what kind of practice is best for you and for the different stages of life.
  • Learn what to do and what not to do in a yoga class, as a practitioner, and as a teacher.
  • Find out how to deal with specific injuries, concerns, and challenges on the mat.

For those interested in following the teacher certification track…

  • Learn how to sequence classes for different levels of ability and themes.  
  • Learn how to adjust postures for better alignment and safety. 
  • Learn about the body and anatomy of movement 
  • Learn how to teach clearly and specifically, using proven strategies and language 
  • Practice teaching with feedback from your teachers and peers 
  • Written final exam, private evaluation, and feedback at the end of the training 
  • Get certified to teach by Yoga Alliance 

The full Syllabus of the course is on the Yoga Alliance website.


Note - this course is a combination of online learning and in-person meetings making it easier on you to allocate the time and still live a normal life, go to work, raise your kids, or whatever else you have going on.
