In our 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training, our trainer will teach you what is foundational to all of the styles of yoga you may encounter or have an interest in practicing and/or teaching, which means a thorough grounding in the five techniques of Hatha Yoga: stillness (asana), rhythm (vinyasa), breath (pranayama), integration (bandha) and presence (drushti).

You will learn how to language and sequence these techniques in ways that continuously reveal their wholeness and that invite infinite creativity on your part. How you arrange them and establish a dominant focus moves them toward “styles” like restorative, vinyasa flow, alignment-based, etc.
