This weekend we start an 8 week session for RYT 200. You don't need to "be ready" or "good enough". You just need to show up at 8:00 a.m. at the studio in the right outfit with a smile on your face. We will do the rest. Read the reviews on Yoga Alliance. People get airtime in our program. They practice teaching to the entire group from the first weekend... Other programs take your money and lecture at you and assign reading and homework. We are skills and drills, 100%. Learn the 5 Facets of a Brilliant Class, Proper alignment, and even fun items like Ayurveda and Magical Daoism. This is it!

Upcoming Teacher Training Sessions

Open Up! Yoga Teacher Training's "Performance Element" focus highlights tons of practical experience in the teacher training environment. While many programs merely lecture and offer a lot of philosophy and theory, Open Up puts you center stage from the first hours of training, honing your skills, revealing the glorious teacher that was inside you all along.  Every session of TT is about you up in front, working on your voice, tone, tempo, timing and delivery of intelligent, inspiring instruction.


Open Up! Yoga Teacher Training's core curriculum emphasizes 4 learning objectives.

When you graduate you will be able to:

  1. Teach a 60 minute class, divided into three distinct 20 minute segments: Warmup, Challenging, and Floor sequences, in both the Hatha and Power Yoga Traditions.

  2. Utilize safe transitions, emphasizing active dialogue.

  3. Use music that facilitates the mind-body experience and enhances the activities at hand.

  4. Adjust yoga students energetically, verbally and physically as are appropriate, welcome and empowering to the student.

More 2018 Sessions Coming Soon!
