Welcome to your Yoga & Politics – Holding the Essence of Yoga Teacher Training! We created this live format to help support our teachers with a more interactive format with discussions along the way. You can either attend the bi-weekly sessions live or you can watch the recordings to stay on top of the information as it progresses – recordings will remain available throughout the duration of the live training (but removed afterwards – you will have 45 days after Session 6 goes live to watch all the videos and pass the exam). Think of this as an online university course to guide and help motivate you to stay on top of your learning.

This training has six, 2hr live sessions running every other week. Each session will begin with about an hour of lecture, followed by an interactive discussion to prompt deeper inquiry.

Please note that there are no actual “lessons/topics” built into the course. The videos are all on the home portal – so because there aren’t any lessons/topics to mark as complete, the course will continue to say 0% complete until you complete the exam. Once you pass the exam it will say 100% complete.

LIVE Sessions Schedule (8-10am PST | 9-11am MST | 11am – 1pm EST):
