The Elemental Yoga Teacher training Experience

Yoga Foundations

Learn the fundamental elements that make up the practice and teaching of yoga, including the foundations of alignment and teaching using our integrated approach. In-depth Asana and Posture Clinics, including hands-on adjustments, Anatomy for yoga Teachers, and Prenatal Yoga. Refresh foundational postures + refine advanced ones.

Meditation, Breathwork & Mantra

Learn to teach Meditation, Breathwork (Pranayama), and Mantra— three powerful yoga practices.  Learn practical tools for deepening your personal practice, and for teaching your students. Integrate mindfulness and breathwork into your life. Learn the power of mantra in transforming your students lives.

Functional Yoga

Honors the differences between human beings and human bodies. A functional approach to yoga explores posture and practice from the inside out, not trying to fit the body into the pose but adjusting the pose when necessary to fit the body. 

Transformative Teaching

Learn to teach Hatha Yoga, Restorative, Yin, and Vinyasa Flow Yoga. Transformative  sequencing & theming modules will teach you to theme classes & sequence intuitively. Learn exceptional teaching techniques while developing a personal Sadhana (practice) that inspires you.

Embodied Philosophy

Our Elemental Yoga Teacher Training includes in-depth study in the yoga texts foundational to the practice and understanding of yoga. Through our embodied approach you’ll learn to integrate yoga wisdom into your teaching and your life.

Community & Service

Something beautiful inevitably unfolds when a group of people come together to practice. Something in the energy shifts as you leave your shoes at the threshold. You’ll experience a deep sense of connection to the group of people who you’ve embarked on this journey with. You’ll learn about Seva and service and how to authentically serve your community.
