Teacher Training

Teacher Development

My fellow faculty members and I offer teacher development and training opportunities through Inspired Yoga Institute. IYI currently provides accredited Yoga Alliance teacher training programs and continuing education courses.

We believe in the value of hands-on practical skills, small class sizes, individual attention and supportive feedback. For us, teacher training goes beyond asana; it is an opportunity to dive into the richness and depth that yoga has to offer. It’s an invitation for self-inquiry, self-discovery and transformation.
