Who we are

We believe in a yoga teacher training curriculum that delivers high-quality education through multiple learning formats and is accessible to anyone who is committed to doing the work and getting up to something bigger than themselves. Our training staff is comprised of highly educated and experienced instructors. Not only are these teachers credentialed by Yoga Alliance, yoga’s governing body, but they have expertise in related fields of study including advanced asana, anatomy, physiology, and leadership.

Diverse and deep learning to cultivate expertise in both teaching and leading is the core foundation of our cumulative 1250-hour course curriculum. Beyond teaching yoga, our teacher training programs provide a transformative experience through leadership development, personal inquiry and growth, clear communication skills, and deep listening allowing you to experience the tools of yoga; asana, inquiry, and meditation, and apply them beyond the studio walls into your personal life, relationships, aspirations and career.

Where and how you choose to apply your learning is up to you – whether it be in front of a studio leading others through a yoga class, making the move to open your own business, influencing change within your community, or rising to CEO of a company.

Our ELI programs are approved Yoga Teacher Training Certifications by Yoga Alliance and many are eligible for MyCAA Scholarship
