Teacher Training – Starts Again Spring 2023

Our emphasis is on exploring the 8 limbs of yoga, embracing yoga’s roots, and sharing yoga asana classes through Optimal Movement (*OM). We believe yoga is a practice of self-study and self-discovery and is so much more than making impressive yoga shapes. Yoga literally translates as “unity” – unity between mind and body, unity in our lives, and unity in our communities. This training will offer modules that emphasize the 8-limbs of yoga including the History and Philosophy of Yoga, Yamas and Niyamas, a variety of different styles of Asana, Pranayama, Energetics, and Meditation.

The unique thing about the downtown desert yoga teacher training is that you choose the path you’d like to focus on. You will be exposed to everything from Restorative and Yin, on one end of the spectrum to Vinyasa Flow and Hot Yoga on the end. And, it isn’t exclusively for students interested in becoming a yoga instructor. It can be a way to deepen your own practice; delve into the other limbs of yoga, learn a little more about the history, philosophy and the energetic aspects of yoga practice, specifically what *Optimal Movement means in your own practice.

Not only can you choose the style of yoga you’d like to focus on, you have pricing options too.  You can get certified through our downtown desert yoga school, get a 200 CYT Yoga Alliance® certification, or simply deepen your practice. We break it up into a series of evening classes and weekend modules that span approximately 40 weeks so it can be suitable for a professional, student, or anyone else that has a busy life. There will be an opportunity to do make-up evenings (if you live remotely) &/or a weekend if necessary.

Take a look at the video and schedule below for all of the details.

During the duration of your training, you get unlimited access to all classes on the regular schedule as part of the tuition. Feel free to call or text me anytime. I am looking forward to chatting with you in person. ~ Colleen
