Have you ever thought about deepening your own practice or wanting to share the gifts of Yoga with others? Our Yoga Alliance registered 200-hour Teacher Training program was created for dedicated Yoga students who wish to broaden their studies and explore becoming a Yoga teacher. Regardless of your level, Simply Yoga’s Teacher Training program promotes a safe balance between effort and ease so all benefit.

In our program you’ll gain a thorough and practical understanding of the primary asanas, including alignment principles, variations, contra-indications and modifications like the use of props. In addition to asana, the program delves into the spiritual aspects and lifestyle of Yoga through the exploration of philosophy found in the ancient texts of the Upanishad’s, Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, and the Bhagavad Gita. Our unique team of teachers create learning experiences that will guide, inspire, and support your transformational journey.
