Are you looking for a Yoga Certification Program?
Earning a yoga certification can help you create a life where your beliefs, thoughts and actions flow from your core values to build a life of integrity and authenticity. The path of yoga is infinitely long and can be embraced as a life journey. Our yoga certification teacher training program is one step along that path providing a basic and solid foundation that gives our graduates the knowledge, skills, and confidence to begin teaching safely and mindfully.
The Living Yoga Program is taught in a "non-denominational" style
of hatha yoga, seeing value in all yogic traditions and styles. It is designed
to honor the timeless teachings of yoga and encourage students to explore,
trust, and use their own inner resources, and to develop their own wonderfully
individualistic teaching style.

In addition to providing a broad-based education about yoga, we focus strongly on the skills required to teach yoga well. The program is oriented to teaching a mindful, gentle, and safe yoga class. However, everything learned is applicable to all styles of hatha yoga, including the more rigorous, athletic forms.
While we have a great deal of sincerity and respect for our program, you will find it to be light-hearted and fun.
