200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training
“The instructors went above and beyond to craft a beautifully well-rounded yoga teacher training. From asana and anatomy, to sutras and sanskrit, I feel that I’ve learned not only how to sequence a safe and physically fulfilling class for my future students, but also a great deal about yoga philosophy and tradition so that I might offer others something that far exceeds 'mindful exercise.'” - Sattva School 200-hour YTT graduate
This community-oriented, Yoga Alliance-certified training draws upon the traditions of bhakti, yoga therapy, ayurveda, and the Yoga Sutras of Patañjali to provide diverse perspectives and experiences that will strengthen your personal practice and prepare you to share yoga with ALL Beings!
Led by Kelly Watson (RYT-500, ERYT-200) and Meghan Leigh (LMT, RYT-500), this training will deepen your understanding of asana, pranayama, mantra, mudra, anatomy & physiology, yoga philosophy, sequencing, and the business of yoga. The five elements (Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Space) will provide a helpful lens through which we will explore the interconnectedness of these topics. All students will design, lead, and receive feedback on two full-length yoga classes (beginner and intermediate/advanced).
