“Yoga is a sophisticated system that extends far beyond doing the physical postures; it is literally a way of living."

The Awaken Yoga Teacher Training program is a thorough and balanced program designed for anyone who wants to further their personal practice, deepen their understanding of yogic philosophy, and experience the transformational power of incorporating it into their daily life.  

Foundational to all yoga practice is yoga philosophy. Using the yoga sutras, you will learn to find relevance and understanding through simple, thoughtful practical application; by studying and practicing meditation, mindfulness, and recording your experiences. 

You’ll learn the classical lineage of yoga through the Ashtanga Vinyasa system. This system is used understand the roots of the physical asana practice, to develop clear concise cues, and to understand the importance of breath, bandhas and drishtis (if you don’t know what those words mean now, it’s ok! You’ll learn.)

Having rooted yourself in the traditional Ashtanga practice, we then progress to a more artistic, modern style of yoga; Awaken Vinyasa. You will learn how to create, sequence and teach your own vinyasa yoga classes, using the power of music and themes to develop an experiential class that moves and impacts not only the physical body but the emotional and spiritual body as well.  We will offer you tools and opportunities to empower you in finding your own authentic voice and style as a teacher. You will learn how to take your yoga practice off of your mat and into your life and how to help others do the same.

Throughout the course you will learn about the anatomy of the body and how it relates to yoga. You will learn about energy anatomy and the chakras. You will learn about how to give helpful and safe assists. And you will learn about the business of yoga and what comes next, when the training is over.

Whether you’ve taken one yoga class or 100 yoga classes, if you’ve felt that spark to learn more, this training is for you.
