Become a Yasodhara Trained Teacher
Yasodhara Ashram-trained teachers work from their experience and rely on their own foundation of yoga to guide and inspire others. We aim to build this foundation in all of our teachers.
“Part of being a teacher is being an on-going learner.”
Our goal is to promote instruction of the highest quality and encourage an experiential approach to yoga. Each of our certified teachers is committed to living the teachings of yoga and bringing forth the best in their students. We encourage our trained teachers to approach teaching yoga as an offering.
Whether you are new to teaching or a teacher with years of experience, these courses will renew and strengthen your foundation. Come together with other teachers to go in-depth in your own work and to refine your teaching skills.
