September 16, 2017 – January 28, 2018

Our Teacher Training is located at our Studio B, located in the Carillon Centre. Our school is licensed with the state of Michigan and registered with the National Yoga Alliance. There are many great schools that register teachers but we take pride in the fact that we provide more than what is required from Yoga Alliance. You will graduate with more information, knowledge, and experience hours than the average training program.

The natural urge to share yoga is inside each of us, and our program provides you with the necessary tools, language and context so you can inspire others in an effective way, while simultaneously letting your own unique talents and gifts shine through. You will be presented with the precise skills you need to teach students in an authentic, intelligent, and meaningful manner.

We have taken great care in our studies over the years to refine presentations on the following topics in our modules to help you become not just a Yoga teacher, but also a trained Yoga professional.
