Yoga Teacher Training

200-Hour Alignment-Based Training 

Yoga provides us with an opportunity to get to know ourselves from the inside out. Society teaches us to live externally, while yoga teaches us to live internally. It’s what makes exploring the teachings so profound. While teachers in training will learn how to teach yoga poses and sequences, this training focuses on teaching yoga students. Teaching others begins with our own personal, internal integrity, which is why we place great importance on studying yoga’s code of ethics first.  Coursework includes yoga humanities, in-depth instruction on teaching postures and, sequencing classes. Great emphasis is placed on ethics, anatomy, physiology, and the meditative quality of this ancient yet timeless practice.

Praise: “I have been practicing with Julia for more than a year and a half. Julia instructs me in therapeutic yoga because of physical limitations. Through this, I have come to utilize breathing, meditative, and body movements to help with pain, to calm,  to strengthen, and to move more freely. Her teachings and our discussions have opened my mind to look at life and all that entails with a different view. If you are fortunate to have the opportunity to study with Julia, don’t pass it up.” -Mark V.
