200hr Fundamentals Teacher Training Starting October 25th, 2019
This program weaves together the science and soul of yoga. You will explore essential skills necessary for any teacher or serious student of yoga: establishing a strong personal practice, asana, philosophy, anatomy, subtle anatomy, meditation, pranayama, sanskrit basics, chanting, and an intro to teaching methodology.
Our internationally renowned program, accredited with the Yoga Alliance, is designed for serious students who have a minimum of two years personal practice experience and who are looking to either deepen their relationship to yoga, or initiate the process of becoming a great teacher.

Restorative Teacher Training with Andrea Paloso
This forty hour Restorative Training is a rich exploration that will inform personal study as well as the teaching skills of each student. Students will learn the joys of restorative yoga through first-hand experience of the postures, and will also learn hands on experience in how to teach students of all levels. You will learn the Ayurvedic, physiological, emotional, and biomechanical elements of each pose. An extensive repertoire of beginner as well as advanced postures will be passed on to students according to the length of each training with the detail necessary to bring depth and life changing benefits to students. We will explore how to set up the postures in detail, as well as how to modify for a class-setting with fewer props.
