200hr Yoga Alliance Certified

Teacher Training

April 22nd - May 6th


with Emily Shapiro

This 200hr Yoga Alliance Certified Foundational Yoga Teacher Training is designed to deepen your personal practice and give you the tools to design and guide a safe and well rounded yoga class upon graduation. 

Practice, Practice, Practice will be the central theme for this month long training. By practicing Asanas, Pranayama, Meditation and by engaging in discussion, debate and discourses the aim is to go beyond the theoretical and to embody the multi dimensional yoga experience. After graduation student/teachers will be teaching from a personal experience rather than a memorized scripted. 

Our Philosophy is to provide an in-depth training rather than touching on a wide spectrum of topics and only scratching the surface. Quality over quantity is the ethos that fuels our training to ensure we  provide students the foundation to deepen your own practice and support integral and authentic teaching.
