200 Hour Teacher Training Intensive

Oct 21 – Nov 4, 2023

Our 14-day retreat-style immersive yoga teacher training provides an opportunity to deepen your practice and understanding of the yoga tradition and to build the skills and techniques to offer these teachings back out into the world.

This comprehensive teacher training will give you a strong foundation in yogic philosophy, theory and practice.  Students will participate in daily asana and pranayama classes, engage in group discussions and lectures, practice teach, and receive personal development coaching to guide them deep into the heart of yoga.

Yoga is the light of Self-knowledge and self-inquiry, students will be guided through potent personal development coaching. We can only teach who we are. This foundational training offers participants powerful tools for connecting with their heart, authoring their lives, and finding their True North.

This retreat-style training is an opportunity to play, connect in community, participate in daily ritual, and immerse fully into the teachings. The Mexico portion of training is powerfully immersive and supported by online self-paced training and live-streaming integration opportunities.

Are you ready for a practice that touches the whole of you? To serve your community through the path of yoga?

Your intensive is supported by lifetime access to a wildly comprehensive online teacher training packed with a decade worth of teachings and practices.

I have studied yoga for 27 years as a practitioner and then as an academic and scholarly researcher of the yoga tradition. You’ll take a deep dive into the history and philosophy of the tradition and way beyond Patanjali’s yoga which is only one of many systems.
