There are a wide variety of yoga styles and if you are just starting out as a teacher it can seem very confusing. We are here to help you find your own style, not to dictate. So even if you know very little about the many yoga traditions we will help you find a way to practice and teach what is true to you.

Styles explored include Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Anusara, Hatha Raja, Kundalini, Pre-natal, Meditation, and Yin.

This program will provide you with an opportunity to deepen your personal yoga practice while developing a solid foundation of teaching skills and educational theory. Throughout the course there will be guest specialist teachers to give expert information and background to the subjects.
