300 hour Teacher Training

Our Summer 2021 Yoga Study / Book Club enrollment is ongoing and hours can go towards your 300 RYT. Join for one month, or the whole year. Read below for additional 300 RYT Teacher Training options.

The “Focus of the Month” each month: Each evening session will include a group meditation, a talk on the text we are focused on, and some light homework assignments for you. The reading and light homework will nudge you to improve your focus, connection, clarity, and awake-ness practices. This training is primarily philosophy based rather than asana. I will send out handouts each week related to our lecture. Please acquire these first few books so that you are ready to go! You don’t have to start reading the first book until after our first session together. Then you will have a month to work through each text. Please get the exact author and edition.
