The Svadhyaya 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training, certified by Yoga Alliance, is an invitation for students and practitioners of all levels, backgrounds, and ages to engage in the conversation, practice and teaching of Yoga. Teacher training is an opportunity to dive deeper into your own personal growth and your love of all things yoga, or to become a yoga teacher. Allison & Kate create a solid foundation on how to teach yoga in a supportive environment to build your confidence as a yoga teacher. You do not need to want to teach in order to enjoy and grow through this program. We ask that students have at least one year of solid practice experience before joining the group to ensure that everyone gets the most out of the program as possible.
