We are thrilled to be offering our 200 Hour TT this Spring led by Josh Liles, Tamara Behar and special guests. Our vision is to create joyous, empathic, gutsy teachers that have a desire to share from the depths of their own experience.

How you express yourself is essential so we will focus on developing and refining your voice as a teacher. Expect to be challenged to develop more self-awareness as we use the practices to shine a light on your blind spots and rejoice in what you already know.

We will share all the tools and techniques that we believe are necessary for leading an intelligent yoga class. Honoring various yoga lineages, we will seek a comprehensive understanding of the philosophy and history of yoga to synthesize what’s useful into a modern yoga practice. Rather than searching for simple answers, we will set up a flexible framework to allow for discussion that prompts deeper inquiry.

We will teach you to see structure and pattern in nature and in the body. We will sharpen and broaden your vision so you will be able to hone in on a subtle detail while keeping an eye on the big picture.
