The training emphasizes a structural approach to keep your students safe as they advance in their practice.

Anatomy and Sequencing for Injury Prevention

This training applies the principles of the anatomy of movement to yoga asanas; helping teachers develop an awareness of common yoga injuries and ways to prevent these injuries from occurring in class.

Classroom clinics and practica help you implement what you have learned in a peer-teaching environment.

The Art of Teaching
The most successful yoga teachers understand how to construct a yoga class thematically so that the whole experience is greater than sum of its parts. In addition, all the aspects of a yoga practice (asanas, pranayama, meditation, philosophy and relaxation) are skillfully woven into a class to give the student a deeper appreciation and authentic experience of what yoga has to offer. You will learn to create empowering, creative and effective yoga sequences as well as developing and refine your communication and language skills. We're excited to announce that Chase Bossart will be teaching half of this core course!
