Is this program appropriate for me?
This training is for you if you want to teach yoga professionally, part-time, or simply want to dive deep into your personal practice.

Upon completion of this program, you will be able to register as an RYT-200, a registered and insureable yoga teacher. This program is designed to complete the requirements of the training over the course of an academic year in the format of one weekend per month.
What is covered in this training?
This training meets and exceeds the Yoga Alliance curriculum requirements as a registered Yoga School. The required curriculum includes the physical principles of practice, the history of yoga, physiology and energetics, yoga philosophy, ethics, and the business of yoga. This training has a extra focus on the following:
Fostering a safe and appropriate environment, both in the class sequence and in individual bodies.
Building a conceptual, foundational understanding of the structure of yoga postures that can be expanded to any pose.
Evidence-based psychobiological perspective to best harness and apply the tools and teachings of yoga.
Applicable and useful business, marketing and niching tools to empower students to accomplish any goals they may have.
What style is this training?
The lead teacher, Sarah Daniels is trained primarily in vinyasa and kripalu, and additionally has extensive training in restorative, yin, and yoga nidra. While one of the goals of the training is to expose students to a wide variety of styles and doctrines from which to build their own teaching practice and style, the main focus will be on vinyasa or flow based movements. Students can expect to be comfortable teaching an active flow style class. Yin and restorative styles will be covered in moderate depth, and students will receive an introduction to Yoga Nidra.
