TEACHER TRAINING

Our 200-hour Teacher Training Program is designed to give yoga students the tools and knowledge to deepen their own practice and share the practice with others. Our intention is to grow great teachers who embody the values of integrity, community, and embracing one’s higher self. Our teaching methodology is based in hot vinyasa yoga with modules focused on anatomy and physiology, the eight limbs of yoga, meditation, and sequencing.

Our program is intentionally limited to a small class of students.

Participating in this 6-month program has been an exceptional academic and personal growth journey for me. The curriculum and materials were thoughtfully designed, offering a diverse exploration of topics—from history, language, business practices, culture-specific history, and significant issues in the yoga community to in-depth studies of anatomy, postures, and teachings from various yoga traditions. Both the founder and lead instructor consistently challenged our thinking and provided access to a range of knowledgeable mentors within the staff. The intentional discussions and relationship-building aspects of the program were instrumental in my personal development, pushing me to critically examine my philosophy and perspectives. The program's requirements were not only engaging and achievable but also appropriately demanding, motivating me to plan, forecast, and commit dedicated time to my training. I would enthusiastically repeat this training without hesitation and eagerly anticipate future opportunities for teaching or continuing education units (CEUs) from Rising Sol Yoga Community. This experience has truly enriched my journey and deepened my passion for yoga education, practice, and my own practice/self study.
