Living Yoga Teacher Training

Living Yoga Teacher Training, a Yoga Alliance registered 200-hour program, is designed for any yoga student or aspiring teacher seeking broader knowledge of classical yoga teachings in an accessible format and supportive environment. The program will examine these ancient theories and practices from the lens of our modern lives and empower students to live their yoga beyond the physical practice.

Under the direction of Alicia Moyer, ERYT-500, the vinyasa training is a comprehensive six-month program that will hone your teaching skills, deepen your yoga practice, and strengthen your mind and heart.

With a focus on alignment, yogic philosophy, and practical teaching skills, our experienced teacher trainers will help you find your unique voice and teaching style. Even if your ultimate goal is not to teach yoga, you can build your ability to communicate clearly and find your path within this wonderful practice. Students become part of an intimate community of like-minded yogis looking to evolve their own personal practice and well-being and emerge with a solid foundation on which to teach and practice yoga.

The training will take place on Wednesday evenings and throughout six intensive weekends on Fridays 6:00-9:00 and Saturdays and Sundays 8:30-6:30.

Teacher Training FAQ

I don’t want to be a yoga teacher. Is that ok? Should I still take the training?

Yes, as long as you want to learn more about yoga. Many students take teacher training exclusively to deepen their own practice. For many, this is the first step on the road toward seeing yoga everywhere – not just on the mat.

Can I miss a weekend? Can I miss a day? Do I have to be there for the entire training?

Attendance is required. Any missed lecture or section must be made up during a future training program in order to receive a certificate. Depending on the length and content of the missed section, a make-up session may be arranged. For consistency of the teachings, and the integrity of our program, we insist that all attendance be mandatory.

Where is the training located?

At a private studio in the Mt. Pleasant neighborhood.
