200 Hour YTT

Wow! You are about to embark on an incredibly healing journey. For me, it was one of the best and most healing months of my life. You can expect to work with your habitual patterns, learn to express who you really are, and feel totally loved up for who you really are. Daily practice, practicums and practical support for being a teacher in the real world is what we are all about.

The training is based in Naropa University and Nosara Yoga institute philosophies who hold lineage in Tibetan Buddhism and Kripalu Yoga.

We welcome all race, creed, gender expression, sexual orientation and abilities. We consider each applicant carefully on appropriate fit for this program. A successful applicant looks to themselves to communicate their needs clearly and with love. A huge part of this program is cultivating loving kindness for self and others. The training is like going through “the fire” and coming out transformed. We start and end the training with ceremony and hold it as sacred space. We expect you to be able to give and receive feedback based in this loving kindness by the end of the training.



Please note that there is one scholarship opportunity through Children Families and Communities for a low income applicant who considers themselves to be a community activist. Inquire about this opportunity at your interview with Ellen.
