In the yoga teacher’s certification training program you will gain proficiency in the practice and teaching of the 8 limbs of yoga which include: the asanas (yoga postures), pranayama (breathing practices), bandhas, mudras, and meditation.

I loved my training and believe they touched on every aspect thoroughly while also offering further learning resources.

Distance Learning

We want our students to both get the most out of their development experience and also provide flexibility for the responsibilities of life. For this reason, we’ll be holding in-person classes, but also live broadcasting each class for students who want to study and attend remotely. Parts of the course, such as the summer semester, are also designed to be remote study for all students. This reduces overhead learning costs and eases the scheduling burden for many in the busy summer months.

Debbie was my 200-hour instructor, so I knew this class was so going to be amazing. And it was! Debbie is very organized in her delivery of lessons. Everything was clearly defined. I was not able to attend many of the Zoom sessions, except 2, but I thoroughly enjoyed them. Debbie was very flexible with me due to my work schedule, which I truly appreciated. I am an educator and will use this in my work with students and eventually, teach some classes. Thank you Debbie!
