Teacher Training

Our alignment-based and practice-centered approach to teacher training is unique: it's flexible and convenient with an emphasis on experiential learning and integration of the materials in a step-by-step approach. Requirements for Yoga Alliance's RYT 200 include: 10 Teaching Series Modules (1 module per month), electives, practicum, and homework assignments.

Our RYT 200 program encourages and allows you to experience, digest, and integrate the teachings of yoga through a series of experiential modules that blend practice with asana-focused anatomy, bio-mechanics, and hands-on assisting. We provide in-depth instruction, apprenticeship, and mentoring, and encourage individual growth.

Each module takes 4 weeks to complete as we travel up the body stopping along the way through mini-immersions. Students may take modules in any order and/or enroll in individual modules. Our modules and workshops satisfy the continuing education units requirement for the Yoga Alliance (if you already are a RYT).

You will learn:

  • anatomy
  • asana
  • subtle anatomy: i.e., chakras, nadis, bandhas
  • meditation
  • pranayama
  • yoga philosophy

Classes meet every Wednesday evening from 6pm-10pm. Elective workshops will be held throughout the year on various dates. Twenty (20) workshop elective hours, 160 core module hours, and 20 non-contact hours (homework) are required to complete a full program and be eligible for RYT 200 Certification.
