To practice yoga in the deepest sense is to commit to developing awareness by observing your lives, your thoughts, your words, and your actions. La Pauses Yoga's certified yoga teacher training course gives you the tools to embrace the Sacred Philosophy of the Yoga Sutras in every part of your life, both on and off your mat.

If you live your yoga practice with authenticity then you can teach yoga and at La Pause Yoga, they will help you practice and teach with compassion and confidence.

The La Pause Yoga method is an integral system of yoga-based predominantly on classical Hatha yoga, Vinyasa sequencing, and the ancient teachings of the Yoga Sutras. In their teacher training course, you will concentrate firstly on building and support your own personal practice, in all areas of your life, both on and off your mat.

They will guide you through the science and philosophy of uniting the mind, body, and spirit. And secondly, they will give you the skills and knowledge to guide your students to live a life embodied by inner awareness. In their intensive 12-day retreat, you will receive extensive teaching practice training, to give you the confidence to develop a compassionate, mindful, and successful yoga business.

Teaching authentic compassionate yoga is a career choice that brings joy and happiness to others.
