Are you interested in furthering your Yoga Teacher Education?

We are proud to announce we are now offering Advanced Yoga Teacher Training through Yoga University! Registration for 300 hour Certification is beginning now.

In the 300 hour teacher training, the teacher will learn how to advance all of the techniques previously studied. They will further their own asana work and become more comfortable teaching intermediate and advanced asanas. The teacher will also learn how to incorporate the knowledge of ancient texts into their understanding of philosophy and their classes. They will also be introduced to more teaching styles, including: pre-natal yoga, restorative yoga, and partner yoga, (stroga).

People who should attend our teacher training:

This insightful teacher training is for anyone who has an avid interest in yoga. Whether you have been practicing for a year, or many years this certification is for you. This training is for all traditions of yoga for new or experienced teachers. It is not necessary to have teaching experience to take it.

Student or teachers become interested in doing teacher training for many different reasons:

  • To understand how to change the perspective of being a student to being a teacher
  • To teach part-time or full-time
  • To open up a studio or add yoga to an already existing business
  • To teach specialty retreats/workshops

The Different types of Yoga Styles that will be taught:

The teacher training goes over a good combination of meditation techniques as well as going over in detail the physical postures. There are many poses that are found in a number of the lineages; Iyengar, Shivananda, Ashtanga, Bikram, Vinyasa, Kripalu, and Desikacher.

I take the responsibility of educating students to be teachers very seriously. After teachers graduate the course I continue to give assistance in the following ways:
