A PROGRAM APART
+ Focused on yoga through the ages, we look at the history of yoga in the ancient and modern worlds, a brief overview of Sanskrit, and we examine how the practice has been transmitted and adapted over time.
+ Using the lens of Ayurveda (the sister science of Yoga), we explore the body and the yogic models of understanding the self.
+ We dive deep into the ethics and philosophy of yoga, adhering to the belief that yoga is far more than physical movement. From the eight limbs of yoga all the way to the business of yoga, we take a critical look at how these concepts are applied in our modern world.
+ Focusing on the physical aspects of the yoga practice, we examine everything from Functional Movement patterns to the more subtle anatomy of the koshas and the traditional chakra model.
+ We explore the art of crafting yoga classes and modifying postures so we can be better equipped to lead with adaptive and intelligent sequencing.
+ Unlike other Yoga Teacher Trainings, we spend a large part of our time learning how to apply and adapt the yoga practice for special populations, including (but not limited to) those with Cancer, PTSD from a variety of traumatic experiences, emotional imbalances such as Depression and Anxiety, Yoga for Addiction Recovery, and more.

ADAPTIVE YOGA TEACHER TRAINING
Our Adaptive Yoga Teacher Training has the objective of preparing instructors with a solid foundation in the ethical and philosophical underpinnings of the yoga practice as well as a knowledge of the physical and subtle bodies, allowing them to lead safe and effective yoga sessions. In addition to fundamental information, our program stands apart from other Yoga Teacher Training Programs because we focus specifically on giving our instructors the tools that will allow them to work with special populations, including, but not limited to, prenatal women and seniors as well as populations dealing with:
+ Emotional imbalances such as depression and anxiety
+ PTSD from a variety of types of trauma
+ Recovery from addiction or abuse
+ Chronic Pain and neurological challenges
Participants have two options for study: Intensive In-Person Training (includes an online Companion Course) in our studio or Virtual Training from the comfort of their own home and on their own timeline. Intensive In-Person Training begins in January of each year, and runs for a consecutive ten-month period, meeting one weekend each month. Weekend schedules may vary and are subject to change, but the general format is presented in the Sample Weekend Schedule below. Our Virtual Training may be started at any time that works for you.
SEVA: TAKING YOUR YOGA OFF THE MAT
Seva is the Sanskrit word for Service. The Seva component of our program is composed of 8 yoga-related service hours to be completed throughout the duration of the program. These hours must be approved by the Lead Trainer and can be completed through a variety of activities, including volunteer teaching, assisting a regularly taught practice, or service work with approved organizations.
Pricing is available in either single payment or broken into auto-renewing monthly payments that will last the duration of the training (10 months). A non-refundable deposit of $315 is required to reserve your spot in either training and will be deducted from the total tuition amount.
IN-PERSON INTENSIVE TRAINING: Full payments made by one month before program start date total $2950 and payments made via the financing plan total $3150*.
VIRTUAL TRAINING TUITION: Full payments made by one month before program start date or upon purchase on the Virtual Training in our Online School total $1950, a savings of $1000 from the In-Person Training**. Payments for the Virtual Training made via the financing plan total $2150.
*Program cost includes an extensive Instructor Workbook and Manual filled with a wealth of information, including intense breakdown of yoga postures with photos, Instructor forms that will serve you in the yoga business, Ayurvedic quizzes and information, and much more. You will also receive complimentary access to an Online Companion Course and a series of printable presentations, recordings, handouts, and other learning guides that will aid you in your learning experience. The manual is your only required reading material. All other suggested reading materials and yoga-related items are not included in the program cost.
***Participants in the Virtual Training program enjoy a significantly reduced price and the luxury of completing training on their own time and from the comfort of their own home. Students who participate in the program entirely from home will be unable to register as Registered Yoga Instructors through Yoga Alliance upon completion of the program. Deciding not to register with Yoga Alliance does not diminish the full credential, and certification will still be recognized and accepted at most studios and fitness facilities. If registering with Yoga Alliance is not a priority for you, Virtual Training may be your best option. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about our Virtual Training option.
