Training Details

Modular Advanced Training

Our program is designed to allow you to choose training dates and topics that fit your goals for your practice, teaching, and career. Our training is divided into three main course types:

Small-Group Mentoring

The foundation of our advanced training program, this unique offering gives you the chance to be guided in your personal practice and as a teacher, guided by a yoga therapist. Each 20-hour course will include group and personal time with your teacher designed to nourish and inspire you, supported by your mentor and fellow teachers. Topics in these courses will include philosophy, skills, and wisdom customized to each small group.

See Upcoming Courses

Core Courses

The courses focus on knowledge and skills that form the core of a strong advanced yoga education. Topics in these courses include teaching methodology, advanced anatomy, adaptive yoga, and advanced yogic philosophy. These courses are 40 hours each, and will be offered over intensive weeks, sometimes in a retreat format.

See Upcoming Courses

Specialization Courses

These courses focus on areas of expertise that are more selective and specific, such as trauma-informed yoga, yoga for specific groups, or specialty styles of yoga like Yin and Restorative. These courses are 20 hours each, offered over weekends. 

See Upcoming Courses


Retreats and Personal Instruction

Some courses will be offered in retreat format, offered in the San Antonio area or other destinations. You also have the option for some hours to be completed by meeting one-on-one with a faculty member or completing an apprenticeship program.
