200 – Hour teacher training
at the mindful body
This is a classical yoga course, rooted in Patanjali’s eightfold path. The curriculum is intended for advancing students who wish to deepen their practice and for aspiring teachers who are looking for a course that provides the tools with which to teach intelligently and confidently. This rich program will certify students to teach alignment-focused and philosophically-inspired Hatha and Vinyasa classes. This includes the principles of Ashtanga Vinyasa, Restorative Yoga, Pre and Postnatal foundations, as well as the therapeutic benefits of yoga asana and pranayama.
This will be an intimate training offered by dedicated and supportive teachers. We offer a small group size of 10 to 20 people to ensure there is a vibrant group dynamic and everyone receives personalized guidance and continued support after the training.
This is a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT200) course, certified by the Yoga Alliance.
