Curriculum

At the heart of our teaching philosophy is the belief that yoga education is about empowering our students and encouraging their exploration within a safe, supportive and inspired environment.

With a comprehensive curriculum rooted in tools and techniques that illuminate classical elements with a modern lens, you’ll enjoy a structure that gives you the knowledge you need in a way that’s digestible, accessible - and most importantly, fun!

You’ll cover fundamentals like safe and creative cuing, vocal and physical presence, linking movement with breath, and the philosophical foundations of the practice. You’ll also learn about what many yoga school don’t teach you — how to sequence to a peak pose creatively, and how to apply anatomy to asana to confidently set your students up for a safe practice. You’ll both experience these skills modeled for you and get practice in amongst close friends and community.

"The 200-Teacher Training was fabulous. The instructors were knowledgeable, kind, experienced, a wealth of information. The course material was very well done, thorough, thoughtful and complete. The layout of the course was really well done. As a high school teacher in my past life and understanding how organize curriculum. I was VERY impressed with the course. An excellent balance, excellent pacing, really well done." — Kristen C.
"My learning experience, although intensive, as the name foretold, was one I would take over and over again. Despite the monumental amounts of information being taught, every section was clearly identified and eloquently delivered. So much so, that even though there was an enormous wealth of knowledge to be understood before our final, I found myself not having to study much as I had already retained every bit of information. Rachel is a genius!" — Hannah Todd
