Next Teacher Training Class: TBA


Personality of the Program

This 200 hour yoga teacher training program is about approaching your yoga practice and your life with honesty, skill and grace (whether you want to teach yoga or not). Through this masterfully designed course, you will understand technique and experience the value of a meaningful pranayama and meditation practice. You will explore how the body functions and discover the power of skillful and intentional alignment. You will also study the philosophy of yoga as it applies to you and your life each day, and courageously begin the journey of sincerely walking the yoga talk. For those who intend to teach, this yoga teacher training is specifically known for giving you an authentic experience of everything you’ll teach about as a yoga teacher (rather than simply telling you what to say and do without an understanding of why), so that you can truly speak from an intelligent and authentic place.

You can expect a high quality yoga teacher training presented by a teacher with over 15 years of experience teaching yoga to both students and teachers.

And you will be supported unconditionally through many challenges as part of this teacher training course, as well as heart opening insight. You will be vulnerable, brave, a little scared; you’ll laugh a lot and probably cry a little. You’ll meet amazing people and make great friends, guaranteed.

Imagine you’re awakened by the sounds of nature as you rise to an environment of serene wildflowers beneath the majestic Topa-Topa mountains. Your meals are lovingly prepared by a private chef and you rest and rejuvenate daily in a spectacular salt water soaking spa with cold plunge. You nap in the thoughtfully placed garden hammocks by day and at night you sit by the outdoor fire and gaze up at the clear, bright, starlit sky. All of this (and more) awaits you in the healing tranquility of Villa Ojai in Ojai, California.
