Our 200hr & 300hr programs includes six modules.

These trainings are an eclectic, thoroughly-curated (and fun) mix of earnest practice and uber-relevant yoga philosophy. They are an experiential and educational deep dive into the power bomb that is yoga. We’ve had nurses and gymnasts, hippies and grannies, Olympians and blind people. We all train together. What we learn and what we experience together is what unites us, whatever we go after, wherever we go from here.
