200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training
8 Month Program Yoga Teacher Training
We offer our yoga teacher training every other year. We are currently working with a group of trainees who will graduate in April 2019. Our next yoga teacher training will be offered in September 2019.
If you’re ready to take your yoga practice to the next level, learn how to teach yoga, and/or delve deeper into your own yoga journey, the Peace Yoga 200-hour Teacher Training program will meet and exceed your needs. Participants in our well-rounded yoga teacher training will explore the history and philosophy of yoga, establish a strong foundation in anatomical principles as they relate to asana (yoga postures), and explore pranayama (breathing) and meditation techniques. We will experience a variety of vinyasa-based asana practices with a focus on safety and alignment.
Our 200-hour Yoga Alliance approved training will prepare you to design and teach vinyasa-based yoga classes to a variety of yoga levels and learning styles. The eight-month training will focus on philosophy, anatomy, teaching methodology, ethics, and practical experience, enabling you to develop the skills and expertise necessary to become a successful yoga teacher.
Congratulations to our most recent group of Teacher Training graduates!
