"I liked the emphasis on spiritual and personal development. Active listening exercises were very effective in encouraging inward reflection. I like that we were a small group, because we really got to know each other. There was a real, intuitive flow in the program’s curriculum. The learning environment was what I have been looking for — very safe and allowing of authentic individual expression in a group setting." ~Adjala Thomson-Kurz, Graduate
We believe yoga is a science, a lifestyle and art - a living, breathing dance of personal and spiritual transformation.
Living our Yoga is a daily invitation into realizing and expressing our true and authentic nature in relationship with each other and with all of life. With each breath - in our personal and teaching practice – we are reminded that we are an inseparable part of the infinite and Divine Source of Love and Creation (in all its names) alive in All and Everything.
We believe that your best teacher is found within and our role is to inspire and support you in expressing that part of your essence through your yoga teaching practice.
Our skilled facilitators will guide you to discover your inner strength, confidence and knowledge while learning how to teach and assist others on their own journeys. Our program has fostered tremendous personal growth and excellence in yoga teaching. Graduates of our program tell us they feel absolutely ready to teach when they leave, while feeling a deep connection to Yoga and Yoga community.
