“Teaching Yoga is one of the greatest services you can render, and it is one of the most honorable occupations you can have. To help someone relieve some of their suffering and see them rediscover the happiness and love in their life is one of the greatest possible rewards.”~ John Friend

200 Hour Yoga Alliance Teacher Training

This training is perfect for anyone who wants to immerse themselves in the study and practice of yoga and/or learn how to serve others using the tools of this transformational path. The beginning of the training is combined with the 50 hour training and later expands on the foundations of the Level 1 intensive by covering more advanced postures, and delving more deeply into every topic including: pranayama, meditation, philosophy, anatomy and physiology, and other styles of yoga. Our hope is that you will develop a strong personal yoga practice and an authentic voice so that you can teach yoga from your heart.


We recommend at least 6 months of some level of experience with yoga but Jill evaluates each student individually so please don’t hesitate to fill out an online application if you are interested.

What Makes a Program Special? Our Vision.


A Principle-based Approach: Our goal is to make learning how to teach poses easy and systematic by using principles that point out the common alignment cues that apply to all poses in a category. These same principles can then apply to poses outside the scope of this training giving you the tools to incorporate new poses into your classes over time.

A Practical Approach: In addition to covering many yoga techniques and philosophy, we will place special emphasis on how these practices can apply, enhance, and transform your everyday life and those of your students. You will be able to use what you learn.

An Authentic Approach: We believe that excellent teaching comes from practice and life. In this training, you will be given the tools to deepen your understanding of yoga, cultivate a daily home practice and live your yoga. -

A Supportive Approach: We want to enhance and support your personal journey- whether you decide to teach or not.

A Fun approach!!! We hope to make learning all aspects of yoga fun by playing teaching games, providing intriguing questions for self-exploration in journaling, suggesting homework assignments that you’ll want to do, and making learning asana and anatomy more interactive by practicing, observing other people’s poses and teaching each other.

A Flexible Approach: We want to give everyone the opportunity to become a yoga teacher- no matter what your schedule is. The 200 hour yoga teacher training schedule is very flexible and missed classes can easily be made up, because all of the information is contained in our thorough and detailed manual. If you have to miss more than 4 weekends or if you work on weekends, contact Jill to see if we can create an alternative plan for you.
