Are you nervous? Excited? Not sure if you can teach?
When one is excited and nervous, it means that they love what they are doing.
You love yoga. And you want to share that love.
It's that simple.

You don't need to be "a certain size" or flexible. 
You don't need to know Sanskrit or all of the yoga poses. 
You don't need a ton of yoga experience.

All you need is an open heart and mind and to allow yourself a chance to come along a journey that is life-changing.

Our Yoga Teacher Training is a self-exploration program that will help guide you on your journey to reach your fullest potential as a teacher and/or yogi. You will experience the physical asana practice, guiding and leading meditations, teaching and self growth. We are here to help you learn to teach an empowered, mindful, safe practice through natural teaching. You will dive deep into sequencing, meditation, alignment, philosophy, assisting, history, anatomy, the business of yoga, and much more. This program is designed for those that aspire to deepen their knowledge of yoga as well as those that aspire to teach. 

YoBa Studio is a Registered Yoga School (RYS) with Yoga Alliance, which designates this 200-hour yoga teacher training program as one which follows Yoga Alliance's standards. Upon completion, students may apply for certification with Yoga Alliance as Registered Yoga Teachers (RYTs).

Why would you recommend YTT at Yoba?

I decided to do the training because I wanted to deepen my personal practice and see where it lead from there. The very first week I felt nervous and insecure because I thought the class would be full of 20 year olds that could do handstands and backbends with their eyes closed and I was going to feel like the old mom. It was exactly the opposite. What I found was a group of extremely supportive women all anxious but ready to go on this journey together. We each came with our baggage and broken parts, but had a desire to know ourselves and each other more and to learn and grow. Sam and Leanna were fantastic and totally disarming from the get-go. They expressed so clearly that they were there for us. That immediately put me at ease and changed my whole mind set. I wasn't there to impress or perform...I was there to learn, grow, and connect with a group of women I'd never met but soon became people I'll cherish forever.

What did you love most about TT?

Teacher Training ended up being not only a deepening of my personal practice and knowledge of yoga, but about connecting to others and being part of their story. Cheering on other women and lifting each other up so we can all stand strong. I loved our weekends together and I will always look back on those months as an incredible time of growth physically, mentally, and personally.I loved every moment of my experience!

Why would you recommend YTT at Yoba?

This YTT program was a great balance of physical, spiritual and anatomical information. I felt like my knowledge was well balanced when I completed my training. The structure of a small group that meets often allows participants to form a great sense of community and camaraderie.

What did you love most about TT?

I loved that I was able to form a community with a diverse group of women. Our different life paths allowed us to learn so much from one another! I also loved that I was able to have a very personal spiritual journey in conjunction with teacher training.
