All students of this program will finish the program with an understanding and experience of what it means to live your yoga.

Learning Objectives

200 Hour Yoga Alliance Certification

This is going to be an amazing experience! We will meet 1 weekend per month (Friday, Saturday & Sunday)from March to August 2021 for a total of 162 Hours with an additional 6.5hours each month of livestream/online component (38 Hours Total).

However Please do not underestimate the physical, mental and emotional requirements of the program. Each of the 6 weekends are full on and we highly recommended that anybody taking this program should not create any obligations for themselves during the days/evening this training takes place. We created this program format so that students could obtain this certification with only having to take a reasonable amount of time off, could simmer into the learning experience without any pressure and also to take time to practice what they learn.

We also ask all trainees to come to this program from a conscious and stable place of mental and emotional wellbeing. This course will teach you to gain awareness through the process of looking at yourself and the world around you through a variety of lenses, sometimes in a way that your used to and sometimes in a way that you might be uncomfortably unfamiliar with. Everything you learn in this course will be part of a tool belt of awareness rather than a concrete list of right or wrong rules.

Trainees should have a regular daily or weekly yoga practice for at least 6 months prior to taking this course.

We will host a Maximum of 9 people for this training and need a Minimum of 4 people to run it!

The programs are led by Senior Yoga Instructor E-RYT 500 Kelly Carlson and Stephen Raaflaub E-RYT 200
