When does the training start? December 6th, 2015

When do I book my flight home? December 15th, 2015

Is there more than one teacher? Yes, both Silvia Mordini and Laura Hand will be leading this training.

How do I know if I’m ready? If you feel inspired to share what you know about how yoga has changed your life then that is one indication that you are ready. We will talk to you and help ask you great questions to help you know for yourself what your heart is saying.

What if I don’t want to teach? We offer two tracks of study.

  • Option 1 includes immersion for serious students looking to deepen their practice and knowledge of yoga asana, meditation, philosophy, and spirit with no intention to teach.
  • Option 2 includes above aspects of self-study culminating in formal certification though Yoga Alliance with 200-Hour Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) status.

What if I DO want to teach–will this training really prepare me?
We have a 10 year proven track record of giving you the tools, the guidance and the practical experience to teach with your own authentic voice. We offer you the opportunity to learn how to adapt the practice for every student using an open system of yoga.

I’ve been teaching already for a while and need to be sure that this training is going to cover something above and beyond the trainings I’ve already done. Can you tell me more about the content? Take a look at our Syllabus page for details. E-mail us and we’ll be happy to go over more detail. About 30% of the students that do our program have already completed another formal teacher training program. These students have said over and over how much deeper our program takes you from Day 1.

This is Module 1, when do should I do Module 2 to complete my 200 hours?  We honor that timing is different for everyone, however we recommend that you take no longer than one year to complete both modules. You have plenty of options all over the world (domestic and international) to do so.

Module 2 Offerings for 2016: 

  • Hawaii: May 1 – 21st, 2016
  • Costa Rica: July 30 – August 20, 2016
  • California: October 2016

*If you have already completed Module 1, you only need to come for the second half of these trainings to complete your 200 hours.
