Yoga Teacher Training

“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds; your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world.
Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.” -Patanjali

Verapose Yoga is a Registered Yoga School with the Yoga Alliance. We offer both an RYT-200 Teacher Training Certification, an RYT-300 Teacher Training Certification as well as numerous Continuing Education opportunities through high-quality workshop offerings. We are a teaching facility and offer many opportunities throughout the year for our students to continue to grow.

At Verapose, our Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) programs are rooted in the belief that everyone is beautifully unique and capable of enjoying the deep and lasting benefits of a holistic yoga practice.

Join us for our (newly transitioned ONLINE)  RYT-200 program to empower your connection to your Self, and to learn how to guide others in enjoying the benefits of yoga. We also offer an RYT-300 program for current RYT-200 yoga teachers.

You will learn:

  • A balanced approach to teaching all students
  • An introduction to anatomy and physiology
  • A deep understanding of the layers of an Asana practice
  • The breath as the foundation of our yoga and meditation practice
  • A daily exploration of yoga in our lives and lifestyle
  • Explore the rich tradition of yoga from its origins.

Small class size; space is limited, to provide high quality instruction and support.

Please note some general rules of the Yoga Alliance:
