300 Hour Teacher Training

Raising the Standards for Yoga Teachers


We intend to have yoga teachers with sharp minds that can respond to what is in front of them. It is more than teaching someone a sequence to be copied, words to be repeated, or alignment cues to be given every time you do a posture.


As a teacher, do you know how to effectively assist someone who has had a hip-replacement, herniated discs, or meniscus tear?  We will examine more deeply the therapeutic application of asana in this training.

What about anxiety or depression?  Do you know what pranayamas or breath patterns are effective in assisting someone suffering from these?

How about sleeplessness or even high blood pressure?  In our training, you will learn some basic principles of Ayurveda which may be helpful.

What about students with PTSD?  What is beneficial and what is detrimental?

Do you know where the new age phrase “we are all one” has its roots?  Or “follow your bliss”?  There is a much deeper meaning and understanding to all of this than the superficial bumper sticker version that disappears as soon as we encounter someone with a different opinion or cuts us off on the freeway.

How about learning some creative, fun, and effective ways to sequence an asana class?
