The 500-Hour Yoga Alliance Certified Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) is designed as a rich and comprehensive educational and life-transforming experience. Our focus is to give you the tools to skillfully educate and practice with compassion, integrity, and safety for you and your students. We encourage you to develop and honor your own voice and style in your yoga practice and as a healer.
Our program is steeped in the Hatha Tantra tradition of the Himalayan Masters lineage of Sri Vidya, via Yogarupa Rod Stryker's Para Yoga. This training is for 200-Hour Certified teachers, as well as those yoga practitioners who are not interested in certification but wish to deepen their practice and understanding of yoga.
