We have been teaching teachers for 16 years! and we LOVE what we do!

Our next 200-hour professional track yoga teacher training starts soon and we'd love to have you join us.

Whether or not you would like to teach, if you have a passion for yoga, want to improve your practice, and learn more about the science and art of yoga, then this program is for you!

Our team of first class teachers are committed to supporting your process of self discovery and to providing a structure for your journey through the practice, promoting non-duality, compassion, and safety. Your teachers are fun, caring, and supportive. Their wide and deep expertise will teach you everything you need to know to be a confident and skilled teacher.

Our goal is to support our students as they develop, deepen, appreciate and expand their yoga practice and understanding of their true Self. Our goal is to give you the tools to be able to teach a full balanced practice, from dynamic to restorative, so you will be able to teach more than one style of yoga.

In this workshop we will explore the use of a wall in standing, seated and inverted poses.

Whether are you a seasoned practitioner or a novice, Iyengar yoga has a lot to offer.
Iyengar Yoga, one of the world’s most widely-practiced forms, emphasizes correct alignment of all parts of the body within each yoga pose. This precision builds strength and stamina, balance and flexibility, and a new sense of well being.

Everybody can practice this method of yoga!

Because of BKS Iyengar’s innovative genius and in-depth work with props, people of all ages and health conditions can perform the poses with ease and thus experience a plethora of benefits from yoga.

By paying attention to the anatomical details and the alignment of each posture, you will learn how to create a steady and safe foundation. Props will be used and suggested, to aid in your understanding of alignment, or to modify the pose as necessary to suit 'your' body.
Be guided along the eight-fold path of yoga using physical alignment as a starting point. Iyengar Yoga encourages the spread of intelligence throughout the body, the growth of self-awareness, and an experience of the asanas as a form of “meditation in action.”

Learn how to systematically cultivate strength, flexibility, stability, and awareness, whatever your level of flexibility or condition.

Learn to practice Yoga in a way that is practical, experiential, and intensely personal.

This workshop will teach you how to be present and how to keep your practice safe and effective.

Open to All levels.

Have you attempted meditation, but just couldn’t get your mind to be still?!! Well, this workshop is for you!!
