200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training
200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training
Our 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training programs are accredited through Yoga Alliance, under our designation as a Registered Yoga School.
What does this mean… & does it matter? Yes, it absolutely matters! It means each 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training must cover curriculum outlined & approved by Yoga Alliance & that a minimum set number of hours are allotted to each specific area. Yoga Alliance also requires our program/faculty & administrators to follow stringent ethical guidelines, practices & training standards.
When a student has successfully completed the program they will be certified as a Yoga Teacher, qualify for liability insurance, & be ready to teach to the public. The 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training program encompasses all the elements for Full Certification as a Yoga Teacher in both Vinyasa & Hatha Yoga, & is recognized world-wide. Absolutely, no further training is required!.
The most unique benefit of our Yoga Training program is our small classes sizes. This provides for an intimate & nurturing setting for both students & teacher.
