Our 200hr hatha focused yoga program is designed for anyone interested in yoga whether to enrich your personal journey or to offer yoga to others as a guide and teacher. There are no prerequisites, all you need is a desire to learn.

In addition to following the comprehensive Yoga Alliance core curriculum and sharing with our students the fundamentals of teaching yoga, we include many unique specialty concepts such as modifications and options, somatics, principles of how, when and who to adjust/assist, how props benefit a practice, newer approaches to safely moving the yoga body, niche styles of yoga such as chair, restorative, trauma informed and more, and most importantly, how to ensure a positive, inclusive, attainable yoga practice for yourself and/or your students at every level of yoga experience, from beginner to the experienced practitioner.

Believing in a personalized experience, we limit enrollment to ensure a casual, receptive, positive environment, and with two instructors often in class with you, the opportunity for one-on-one mentoring is available. We won't expect you to be able to do all the poses in all their infinite variety (few can) but you will understand and appreciate them!

After successful completion of the course you may register with Yoga Alliance for the RYT 200 credential as a reflection of your commitment to enhanced yoga training. To continue your yoga journey consider our follow-up 300hr teacher training, and/or register for our many specialty workshops.

*Our September 2020 and February 2021 intakes will closely follow the new core curriculum. Training hours will remain at 180+ classroom and 20+ assigned self-study (projects, skills practice, attending yoga classes). The September 2022 intake will be up-levelled for both content and classroom hours (200+); this may include on-line hours following the guidelines set by Yoga Alliance.
