About Yoga Teacher Training

Instruction takes place at different levels of intensity, and includes the option for 60 hour immersions, 200 hours or 300 hours of training. Each training modality maintains the traditional approach to yoga, which requires the teacher to understand the philosophical basis of the practice as well as yoga postures and creating sequences. Students can expect to learn how to sequence a class and teach with confidence. Required readings and recommended work are part of each course. As future hot yoga teachers, each student will also be presented with tools and techniques for assisting a classroom in overcoming the most common problems that happen during a hot yoga session.
