principles of functional
vinyasa yoga - part 1 (50hrs)

classic flows to qiga 


365 day online access


graduates tell us that our 300hr teacher training, is the very best product of its kind. this is because we do not produce cookie-cutter yoga instructors. we challenge and educate you to better know yourself as a teacher (and practitioner) and grow your capacity from your ability to make sound decisions based on your needs and, more importantly, the needs of your students.

this training will challenge you to investigate the why of how you teach (or practice), and ask questions that may not have occurred to you to consider, so that you can truly deliver your own lessons and curriculum with clarity, authority and confidence. we have intentionally put the highest standards in place and have received the highest praise from our students (via Yoga Alliance’s mandatory rating system). our students graduate with an uncomparable breadth of teaching knowledge and skills. 

our program consists of two 50 hour modules (see breakdown of topics in the curriculum section below). this is module 1.

in each 50hr program you get 365 day access to the full 50hr program - watch as many times as you want

But that's not all - BONUS!

Yep, it’s true.

And if you’re still wondering if this is right for you, I want to make this crystal clear...

  • ​It doesn’t matter if you consider yourself a yoga master (there's something you need to know)...
  • ​​It doesn’t matter if what style or school of yoga you practice... (styles and schools are misleading) ​​
  • It doesn’t matter if you don't feel ready... (I’m going to give you everything you need) ​​
  • It doesn’t matter if you’ve been burned by training before (it happens a lot).
  • And it DEFINITELY doesn’t matter if you’re not “tech-savvy” (if you can point & click, then you’re already way ahead of the game).

100hrs curriculum


curriculum: the art and science of breath & vinyasa yoga

we have deconstructed postural yoga through our investigation of variable anatomy in our yin yoga program.

now we build it back up again.

what cues do you give when we are all so different. what does a functional vinyasa practice look and feel like? how do we celebrate when we are all so different?

sequencing can be challenging. sequencing without cookie-cutter alignment and to a theme can be even more challenging. in this module, we will examine how to properly teach without alignment of postures, and how to best set up your class sequence geared towards a peak posture or a philosophical idea. 

what is vinyasa…really? with many broad definitions out there, we will look at modern vinyasa in its current form and identify elements of vinyasa together to better understand this style. progressions and regressions of asanas will be evaluated to accommodate the most common class - the mixed-level class.

through an intensely practical final 100hrs, prepare to go back out into the world and teach.
