A Soul.Full Approach


..always a student..
"Be teachable until the end.” — Yogarupa Rod Strkyer

 We feel that studentship is of utmost importance in becoming a solid and knowledgeable teacher. With the assumption that we are all teachers in some regard, our mission is to provide a welcoming and uplifting environment for yoga teachers to continue to uncover their authentic wisdom and deliver well-sequenced, healing yoga instruction with intelligent alignment and soulful connection. With five experienced teachers, you will receive the highest quality of attention, instruction, and support. Upon completion, you will be eligible for registration with Yoga Alliance at the RYT-500 level.

A Fresh Take on Anatomy

.. expand your toolbox, awaken to what is already there ..
“What I need for healing is already present in my system.” — Leslie Kaminoff

As a 500-level teacher, diving into yoga anatomy will help expand your teacher toolbox so you are more prepared for anything your students bring to you. Explore anatomy and physiology of the human body in a relevant, functional way. 


.. our world needs more of your heart and soul…connect authentically with your students ..

We learn by practicing. At the core of this training is the strong belief that the need for live teaching opportunities and constructive feedback bolsters your confidence and develops your teaching presence. Learn to approach and guide your students utilizing engaging demonstrations, precise verbal cueing, and safe, effective hands-on assists. We have invited experts in voice to help coach you to your highest clarity and resonance. 


.. yoga as philosophy and lifestyle ..
"Yoga is not to be performed; yoga is to be lived." — Aadil Palkhivala

The posture is only the beginning. Extract meaning from the Yoga Sutra and integrate this knowledge in the modern world. Weave ancient scriptures into your teaching in subtle ways. Honor the tradition of yoga and discover ways to incorporate the sacred into your everyday practice through ceremonial rituals, pranayama, meditation, and reflection.

thriving in a growing yoga industry

.. grow your business ethically and authentically ..
"Doing what you love is the cornerstone of having abundance in your life." — Wayne Dyer

Develop conscious business practices rooted in the yamas. Learn how to brand, market and promote yourself in an ever-growing industry. Acquire key strategies to generate cash flow and build a thriving business. Learn how to create workshops, series classes, and retreats.


.. this is your soulspace ..
"There is in me an essential energy that is the basis of all that exists." — Jeanne De Salzmann

Immerse yourself as a student and teacher of the practice as a means to derive strength from the relationships and accountability with others in the community. Through compassionate connection, you will feel seen, heard, and valued as integral parts to the whole training. Connection with the group continues throughout the training online through Facebook groups, conference calls, reading and reflective assignments.
