200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training


Awaken • Transform • Inspire


$3,325 early bird registration*

 This unique, highly individualized program offers an experiential curriculum for students desiring to go to the next level.The first 100 hours focuses on learning The Abhaya Method, a non-dogmatic, therapeutic system based on Eastern healing modalities & western physical therapy/ functional movement techniques. The Abhaya Method is oriented toward awakening the body’s innate intelligence (through releasing gripping and holding patterns) & ultimately promoting healthy pranic flow leading to balance. The second 100 hours is teaching oriented and delves directly into learning and practicing teaching skills: The Abhaya Method, vinyasa, verbal instruction, class construction, theme construction, sequencing, hands on adjustments, therapeutics, applied Ayurveda, and most importantly – weekly teaching practice with feedback. Part 1 is practice & study oriented with its premise to provide a wide context for the practitioner to understand yoga & asana more deeply. Part 2 is focused on applied teaching skills.
