Additionally, knowledge and use of email, internet, and google docs is required.

ALL INTERESTED APPLICANTS MUST ATTEND AN INFORMATION MEETING ON Sunday, September 23rd at 5:30pm. Applications are due on or before this date.

Program Details and Hours:

This program will focus on Hatha, the foundation of all physical yoga, with special emphasis on Vinyasa Flow. We will explore Kundalini Yoga, the Chakras, Meditation, Pranayama and much more.

You will participate in 180 scheduled classroom hours as part of the Yoga Alliance 200 hour requirement, along with 20 hours of independent study. You will participate in a variety of assignments and activities, including: readings, book reports, quizzes, workshops, yoga classes, etc. (Knowledge and use of email, internet, and google docs is required.) All hours must be completed in order to receive certificate and graduate.

Please note: We now offer a special Yoga Immersion opportunity for those applicants looking to deepen their yoga studies/practice and forego the Yoga Alliance Teacher certification. Please clarify on your application if this is an option for you. Immersion component runs from October-January only with a special discounted rate. 


In the event of an absence, make-up days and/or additional homework assignments may be assigned to ensure you do not miss any part of the curriculum. Should you miss more than 2 sessions, we reserve the right to withhold certification until you are able to make-up class time during our next Teacher Training session. Such situations will be evaluated on an individual case basis. We ask that you carefully consider the time commitment required to participate in our program and obtain certification. Thank you in advance.

In the event that you do not want or are unable to participate in the teaching component of our program, a certificate demonstrating completion of deepening your yoga studies/practice may be issued upon written request.
