200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training



In this training program, you can count on a specialized focus on anatomy, alignment, and how to instruct a safe and effective yoga practice. As a physical therapy doctoral student (graduating in May), I promise you that. The training has a broad focus when it comes to style. You will learn Hatha, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Yin, and more, so that you YOU have the knowledge to inform your teaching choices. Whether you are a student looking to deepen your practice or you intend to teach- this training will change you. View the training's page on Yoga Alliance here.   

The Next Training will begin March 2021!

Payment plan

(tuition does not include the price of books)

 You may pay the amount in full, or I offer a payment plan with a minimum monthly payment of: 

For hybrid students:

~$240/month (no payment due in December)

 For the duration of the training

Plus a non-refundable deposit of $240 (paid prior to the start of training & is included in the total tuition cost)


For online students:

$190/month (no payment due in December)

For the duration of training

Plus a non-refundable deposit of $190 (paid prior to the start of training & is included in the total tuition cost).

This method of payment has been popular in the past and it's my hope that it makes training more accessible to you. Regardless, the training must be paid in full before a certificate will be awarded. 

*No refunds will be given and once your deposit is paid, you will be required to sign a payment agreement stating that I am authorized to continue charging you for the full amount of the training even if your involvement in the training ceases at any time.*
