Introducing an intensive program that will not only help you better understand the philosophy and history of yoga, but how to live a yogic life in all parts of your world.

An immersion not only into the physical practice, the anatomy and energetic experience of the postures, but a deep dive into understanding the workings of your mind, tools and techniques to help you practice slowing down the chitter chatter of your thoughts.

Study not only of ancient and sacred texts, mythology and spiritual aspects of the yogic landscape, but also how these words and stories relate to the world as you experience it, your relationships, your struggles, your daily routine.

Join us for a total immersion into a deeper understanding of this world in our 200 Hour Summer Yoga + Teacher Training.

This training is perfect if you want to:

  • Learn how to lead a yoga class with grace and strength

  • Discover your authentic voice

  • Gain confidence standing in front of and speaking to a group

  • Develop compassion and understanding of others

  • Explore your own motivations, psychology, and deep-seeded beliefs

  • Expand your knowledge of the spiritual world

  • Dive into the 8-limbed yoga path
