Program Structure

We offer a flexible program that includes 2 weeklong intensive retreats with online course work in between.

During the retreats, mornings begin with a 2hr practice, and our days are filled with intensive study delving into anatomy, alignment and adjustments of the yoga postures, laying the foundation for your teaching. Evenings include study of some of the philosophical and other relevant topics and end with homework and self-reflection.

In the four to five months in between the retreats, you will be given weekly homework assignments consisting of online lectures, review points, practice teaching and weekly personal practice recommendations. You should plan for 3-4 hours a week of homework plus a regular yoga practice.

On the 2nd retreat, we will bring all the elements of teaching yoga together with classes on sequencing & refining your teaching and plenty of practice teaching with valuable feedback to hone your skills as a teacher.
