Event Details

Our values are inclusion, fairness, compassion, discipline, equality, mutual respect, love and peace. In this comprehensive OHYA accredited Teacher Training, we will train you to teach the original hot yoga sequence of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises. It will be completed mostly in person and partly online with some guest lecturers from around the yoga world. Currently, we are planning for one intensive month, followed by 4 follow-up weekends with part-time posture clinics. Our dates for the teacher training are September 5- October 2nd, followed by October 8, 15, 22, 29 to cover injury and modifications. We will have limited spots and will do as many lectures and posture clinics outside in the grass while it is beautiful out! The goal of the teacher training is to set you on a lifelong path of self-discovery and allow you to teach the best yoga class you can. You will develop your knowledge of the postures, yoga philosophy, ethics and more. You will discover many things about yourself in the process. This is meant to be a rigorous training, not a yoga retreat, so please do keep that in mind. There is a transformational shift that happens to people during an intensive teacher training. As such, we will not be accepting part-time participants.

We are pleased to invite a number of lecturers from around the yoga world to lecture on the following units:

The week’s schedule for the intensive will look something like this:
Monday-Friday: 2 yoga classes plus 2-3 additional hours of yoga practice based posture clinics. There will be an additional 2-4 hours of teaching clinics and lecture.

Saturdays: 1 yoga class plus 3-4 hours of teaching posture clinic
The follow-up weekends will include units on corrections for injuries, pregnancy, limited range of motion and more.

The cost of the training is $5,000 and will include an OHYA teacher directory listing, a CPR/AED certification and 40+ hours of continued mentorship with Cat over at least 6 months. Your spot will be secured after paying a $1,000 non-refundable deposit.

While we will try our best to help you out, we cannot guarantee that teacher trainees will have teaching positions at our yoga school.
