The Program

Through this program, you will learn everything you need to deliver safe, enjoyable and inspirational classes. Learn basic ayurvedic breakdown and proper alignment for the most popular yoga poses as well as creative choreography, energy enhancements, hands-on adjustments and the ability to accommodate people in your classes with common injuries and illnesses.

You will learn to teach hatha and hatha flow classes. These are the most recognizable and popular styles of yoga taught here in the West. Almost all franchises such as Iyengar, Bikram’s and Anusara are all forms of hatha yoga. You will also have the benefit of learning from a wide variety of guest instructors who teach different styles of yoga within their area of expertise. This will give you a wide breadth of knowledge and allow you to move into a niche that is best suited to your skills.
