Yoga Loft 200 Hour Teacher Training

The Yoga Loft’s 200 hr teacher training program is designed for those who would like to become teachers, as well as for those who would like to broaden their yoga knowledge and ability. This program offers a comprehensive training of Hatha yoga that includes teaching techniques, training and practice, meditation, breathing practices, western anatomy and physiology, energetic anatomy (chakras, nadis, bandhas, etc.), yoga philosophy and history, lifestyle and ethics,  Ayurveda, as well a great deal of teaching practice.

While we focus on alignment-based yoga and vinyasa flow yoga, we also introduce a variation of  yoga styles including: Restorative, Yin, Chair Yoga, and more. Our experiential learning process gives you plenty of room to explore and develop a style of teaching that resonates with you.  There will be ample focus throughout the practice on creating a safe, thoughtful and inclusive yoga practice for bodies of all shapes and abilities. It is our goal to help you feel knowledgeable, secure and confident in your ability to practice and teach yoga.

We recognize that every body is different and respect each person’s level and ability. You do not have to be an advanced yogi to take this program! This program is for those with a desire to learn and grow in their own practice, as well as a love for yoga that they would like to share with others.
