Classical yoga, progressively aligned.


Yoga for ALL bodies.

Fitting the pose to the student, rather than the student to the pose.

This 200 hour yoga alliance registered teacher training instructs teachers in classical yoga philosophy and spirituality, with a progressive approach to alignment and movement. We believe in fitting the asana to the student rather than the student to the asana. We advocate for asana practice that accommodates diverse bodies and meets people where they are in their yogic journey. 

You will learn functional alignment and anatomy, and explore the origins of yoga through yogic philosophy and history. Week by week, we will explore deepening meditation skills to complement your asana practice. This training will launch you into a more expansive and holistic understanding of your own practice, and prepare those aspiring to teach to step into the role of instructor.
