Continuing Education for Yoga Teachers

Whether you are a recent graduate of a 200 hr Yoga Teacher Training, or you have been teaching and practicing yoga for much of your life…. or somewhere in between…. Yoga is a life inquiry that does not have an ending point; it is a path that requires continued engagement with the exploration of the self and consciousness.

Here are a few reasons why you may benefit from our community initiative of providing yoga teachers with continuing education:

  • Creating community with other yoga teachers breaks down barriers of competition and opens doorways of connection, friendship, and support
  • Teaching yoga is not all bliss. It can actually be really challenging. This way we can relate and support each other when we meet those difficult moments
  • Just because you have a 200 hr certification does not guarantee that you know much about yoga at all: the certification is just a starting place. There’s so much to learn! Yoga is a vast, ancient, and continually evolving system
  • The current popular culture surrounding yoga has the potential to steer us off the path, and a myriad of social, cultural, and political forces can create conditions that are worth bringing up as a conscious inquiry
  • When you teach yoga, you are continuously giving your energy, time, and focus outward. You may need to refill your well and focus inward… self care!
  • Your students need you to be committed to your practice and committed to evolving your teaching
  • It’s inspiring to be in a like-minded, like-hearted community!
