    How long is the training program?

    This 200hr training meets for one immersion weekend a month and takes 8 months to complete. Detailed information is listed below. This training is about a lifestyle. It must work for your life and is a choice you make for life. The overwhelming feedback of our previous trainings is that the shorter training length made it difficult for those with families and careers to balance. Our training is dedicated to creating an environment and schedule that allows you to absorb the wealth of information and integrate that knowledge into your practice.

    Thursday 6:00pm - 9:00pm
    Friday 6:00pm - 9:00pm

You will explore anatomy, body image and multiple styles of yoga including pre-natal, chair yoga, power, hot yoga, the Hot 26 series, gentle, restorative, yin with the majority of the training focused on vinyasa flow. Every weekend is different and strategically designed to offer a new perspective, challenge, create new habits, let go of old patterns and provide the best possible environment for growth as a student and teacher.

    What if I need to miss anything?

    We understand that life happens. Though we ask that every student plan to be present for all of the hours listed, you will have the opportunity to make up some hours during your training. Certain topics may have to be made up by attending a future training.

    If you must miss, we ask that you do NOT miss more than 22 hours of training at a maximum.

    If you have to schedule a private session with an instructor to make up a lecture you missed, it will be at your OWN cost. Some topics can be made up without a private session, but we cannot guarantee this depending on what you miss. So, please be prepared for the possibility of returning to a future training. If you must come to a future training, there is no additional cost to you.

    Whom should I contact with questions?
