Yoga Teacher Training

Yoga Teacher Training in the Red River Gorge

 

Are you ready to take the next step in your yoga practice and expand your understanding and experience of the subject? If you answered yes, then you should join our yoga teacher training program in the Red River Gorge of Kentucky. Our 200-hour course will allow you to advance your physical practice by deeply exploring the use of asana and breathwork through anatomy, proper sequencing, alignment and safe adjustments.  At the same time, we will be exploring the history and philosophy of yoga to create a well-rounded comprehension of the subject. 

Our Yoga Teacher training does not strictly adhere to a specific lineage. Instead, we approach the study of yoga with a free and inquisitive mind; evolving from the ideas of the past and integrating them with the knowledge of today. By doing this, we are able to utilize current research to have a better understanding of body mechanics and how that pertains to the physiology of a yoga practice.

Upon completion of this course, you will have a strong foundation in human anatomy and how it relates to yoga. You will feel confident in teaching a safe yoga class to the public, as many hours of the training will be spent on breaking down the practice to observe how it affects specific structures of the body.
