This 200 Hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training exceeds Yoga Alliance standards. 

We Perfected this certification with over 600+ Graduates through LIVE trainings.

Students can expect to have a deep understanding of yoga and a full range of yogic knowledge: 
posture (asana), breathing (pranayama), philosophy, and applications in daily living.

The class size is limited, so every student receives personalized attention and has direct contact with their instructor. One factor that separates Yoga Teacher Academy from other teacher trainings is their teacher development module.

Most trainings offered only teach you how to instruct classes using their model, and that’s how most instructors fail. Yoga Teacher Academy has formulated the practice of finding your teaching voice and style, these two are a major key in your yoga teaching.

You will be helped in finding a teaching style that you build upon and find your voice teaching flow. In addition, you will learn how to lead a safe and well-balanced class. There will be three yoga traditions covered in this training; 
Vinyasa, Yin, and Hatha.
