This is the Jedi training you did not receive in your average yoga teacher training. This course will fill major gaps in traditional teacher trainings... specifically when it comes to psychological finesse.

In this program we will develop psychologically-sound teaching and presence through 8 months of academic study, self inquiry and discussion. To learn more about the topics covered and registration for the 2016/2017 Cohort read more.

Winter Session 2017 (Feb 2nd - April 13th 2017)


We often begin yoga as a way to turn towards the Light, the Goodness and the deeper understanding of who we are. Whether we begin in hopes of healing an injury of body, or a broken heart, or unsettled soul, we set out on this journey as a way to remember our wholeness, lighten our beings and feel Good in life and body.

And then…

Somewhere along the path of practice we discover its not all rainbow and unicorns “out there” or “in here”. We see the limitations of a yoga practice. We get injured. We get hurt. We get a broken heart. We become jaded. We get angry. We loose faith.  We act out. We ignore. We pretend. We come up with great strategies of non-resolution. We become part of a yoga culture for better and for worse. 

So what do we do with all THAT?
