Successful graduates will receive a diploma and are eligible to register with Yoga Alliance as 200-RYT. Students enrolled in the “EYTP” will receive the same diploma in addition to a certificate from EYTP: Equine Yoga Teacher Program certification.

All our 200-hour courses are registered with Yoga Alliance and follow their curriculum guidelines. This course meets and exceeds the criteria set forth by Yoga Alliance for a teacher training course. We offer you a unique opportunity to deepen your own yoga practice and gain the skills and confidence to teach your own yoga classes.

Enjoy meditation practice surrounded by nature, giant trees, howler monkeys, and parrots. Mindfulness Meditation walks along the jungle paths and guided meditation with the herd of Kindred Spirits horses, will be some of the special activities you will experience, heal and learn from. Sunrise and sunset yoga classes where as a group we will create beautiful mandalas in the sand to express our creativity and use our right brain bringing us closer to whom we are.

Students will learn to teach Ashtanga Vinyasa, Hatha, and Shivananda Yoga styles deepening their own understanding of Yoga and enhancing their professional yoga teaching careers. 

Unique to our course we limit enrollment to a maximum of 6 or 10 students per training.  This way we can offer more individual support and practical training to each student. Our teachers and our homey venues lend to a more intimate experience for our students.

The course includes daily pranayama, mantra chanting and asana practice to help each student enrich their own practice. Lectures and practicums on Yoga philosophy, ethics, anatomy, and physiology, teaching methods will be covered in this course.

Daily journalling is encouraged and homework may include your personal writings or we will choose a yama and niyama and you will be asked to contemplate and share life challenges while living the yamas and niyamas. The learnings of mantras and chanting, walking meditation, silent time, and Sanskrit names of the asanas are part of our training.

You will learn how to teach, how to guide and share your yoga practice, built on the foundation of your own practice. The yoga training is to prepare you for sharing and leading yoga sessions, as well as incorporating the balance of mat yoga into your life and the lives you touch.
