Each group of students is special and unique; brought together for their highest good and the highest good of all. The teacher training staff is passionate about ensuring students feel entirely comfortable to be themselves, to share their experiences, and ask questions. Support by peers, mentors, and teachers is not only provided during the in-person training, but also extensively during the at-home study and class assisting portion of the program and even beyond.

Small, intimate classes provide lots of personal attention

Learn to teach all student levels


Anahata has classes for all student levels and teacher trainees will learn how to safely and successfully teach them all including gentle, meditative, and our more advanced flow. Trainees will also be trained to teach prenatal yoga and even kids yoga too! 


Our Teacher Training manual and online materials have all you need to learn different classes to accommodate for all levels. It shows 3 flow sequences with pictures in color with every posture, modifications, precise verbal instructions, precautions and contra-indications.

Learn modifications to help accommodate students' needs


It is essential to understand students' injuries and what proper modifications can be offered. it's important to realize that we should accommodate the postures for the students and not the other way around. Convey to students that there is no perfect posture to reach, that they should always honor their edge and move with compassion and love.

Learn safe hands-on adjustments to help students with proper alignment and to move deeper into each posture. Have the opportunity to practice adjusting students as you assist mentor teachers in group classes. 

Have the opportunity to teach right away at Anahata Yoga Studio! 


Receive lots of support and encouragement from our Teacher Training Team throughout the whole program until you are certified. 

Teachers at Anahata Yoga must receive their certification of completion and also be local residents.
