Develop your yoga teaching as part of your own unique life vision and mission. The Community Yoga Teacher Training program is based on a healing-centered approach with the understanding that the needs of students are unique. Each student should receive comprehensive and in-depth instruction in the wider vision of yoga as well as detailed experiential instructions of the tools and techniques of yoga. With this foundation, each teacher is given a range of possibilities for the creative teaching of yoga from which they can evolve their own vision of the teaching process.

Take Your Teaching Beyond the Classroom

Understand Health and Illness

Interactive Psychology and Philosophy of Yoga
