At Down Dog Yoga our intention for every training program we offer is to  give you an opportunity to learn, grow, and  find your own voice.  If you have completed your 200 hour program and are hungry for more, this program will support you on your path as you continue to cultivate your teaching, your leadership and your contemplative skills to empower you to grow in the direction you choose. 

You will step into the world of mastery in your teaching by expanding your knowledge, elevating your effectiveness, and tapping into your unique expression. You will emerge as a leader of change who is causing powerful shift in the world.

This program is based on classical yoga traditions, made accessible and understandable for the modern day yoga student. The framework used for the training is a power vinyasa sequence, which is the foundation of our teaching at Down Dog. With this understanding you can go out into the world and adapt your teaching to meet all of the students you will meet on your journey. We will dive deep into yoga philosophy, vinyasa sequencing, meditation, pranayama, advanced postures, leading powerful inquiry, cultivating community, and being of service. 

 This is a 10 month-long program, meeting about once each month.  The start date is the weekend of Sept 28th-30 2018.
