Teacher Training Graduates reviews

Madison M

I truly loved this program. Top to bottom, the knowledge was comprehensive and practical. It delved into the necessary information, setting us up for success in teaching and gave us a good taste of what paths we might want to take afterwards. I feel so ready and excited to teach, and completely supported by the faculty we step into the next chapter. So grateful for this training, and everything to come!

Avery B

I've wanted to do my yoga teacher training for some time now and the online experience was a great way to finally get it in! Jason is incredibly knowledgable and I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in learning how to teach yoga or simply deepen their practice.

Kristina S

I had such a great time doing the first-ever online teacher training at YogaTree! Online learning is typically not my favorite way to learn, however, the online teacher training was incredibly engaging and I loved it. I really enjoyed the in-depth knowledge we gained in a variety of subject areas (anatomy, philosophy, and of course, the asanas). I would highly recommend YogaTree's teacher training!

Mariam B

Yoga Tree's teacher training program is a well-rounded program that I highly recommend for yogis and non-yogis alike. In addition to learning technical and philosophical approaches to yoga from world-class teachers, I also learned so much about myself along the way. It is more than I could have anticipated and way more than I can convey in a simple testimonial! Thank you to Yoga Tree and all the teachers who taught me so much on this journey.

What styles will I be prepared to teach with Yoga Tree’s Yoga Teacher Training?

Yoga Tree’s teacher training philosophy stems from three yoga traditions: Hatha, Asthanga, and Hot Yoga.

Upon graduating from the program, students will have developed a personal teaching style, and comfort and ability to teach hot and non-heated Hatha-style classes. Hot Yoga training will not be held in a heated room. You will also gain familiarity with other styles such as vinyasa and gentle hatha, where you can choose to expand your knowledge further develop your practice as a yoga teacher.

What will a typical day of Yoga Teacher Training look like?

Each day will include a physical yoga practice – so be prepared to move!

Expect to be welcomed into a safe environment, and to let go of your fears from day one. Each day of your training will have a different focus taught by a core of senior teachers and rotating guest teachers sharing specific knowledge. You will enjoy intense days of training with a supportive and energetic group of people.

On a typical day, you will start with a morning 60 min practice, followed by theory and postural clinics. Lunch is 1 hr, followed by sequencing techniques or philosophy, ending the day with another 60 minutes of practice to incorporate and review postures studied during the day.

Why should I choose Yoga Tree’s Teacher Training Program?
