Summer 2020 – On-Site Yoga Teacher Training

Our next Yoga Teacher certification course begins on July 6, 2020. Candidates should have, at least, two years of steady training in Aura’s Restorative/Hatha Yoga Style or comparable training within a similar style. Restorative and Hatha Yoga are gentle styles that fit the needs of everyone. Client safety is our number one concern.

Yoga Teacher Training classes meet  July 6, 2020 – August 7, 2020

You must make a commitment to be at all of the teacher training classes and go through an internship. Level I Yoga Teacher training is based on 200 hours of intensive study within the many aspects of Hatha Yoga.

Some flexibility can be built into your Yoga Teacher internship, based upon hours with your mentor and teaching Yoga classes. We will cover this on orientation day or you can call ahead.
