Why Teacher Training

Do you LOVE your yoga practice?  Do you wonder why it makes you feel so great?  Do you want to share the love with the world around you?  Maybe you don’t want to teach a class, but you want to know more about yoga.  If you answered yes to any of these questions, Yoga Teacher Training is for you!

Why Train with Yoga East

Are you a busy professional interested in learning more about your favorite practice, but just cant seem to figure out when you could fit it into your crazy life?  Do you have a full schedule balancing your children, household, school work and/or job?  Is it impossible to dedicate an entire weekend to school for months on end?  Do you want a quality Yoga Training that doesn’t break the bank?  Yoga Teacher Training with Yoga East is for YOU!

What does Yoga East Offer that’s Unique?

Yoga East’s 200 hour Teacher Training Program, “Yoga for Every Body” is the area’s ONLY fully flexible, fully modular Yoga Teacher Training program recognized by Yoga Alliance.  We are the only school that allows you to attend the classes in your own time, and at your own pace.  If you can’t make all the classes in one semester, we offer 3 semesters a year, so you can come when your schedule allows.  You have two years to complete your training, OR, you can complete your training in just over 4 months.

Yoga East is the BEST Value

Yoga East Teacher Training is the ONLY  program in the area that includes a 1-year unlimited membership to the studio.  We believe that the best yoga teachers are the teachers spending time on their mats, so we offer 1-year unlimited yoga to all our Teacher Trainees regardless the amount of time it takes them to complete our training program.  This will help you grow stronger in your personal practice, which (we believe) will strengthen your teaching practice.  Your tuition covers the training (with all our special guests), the 1-year membership, and the ability to come back and refine your skills even after you graduate from our program. No other program in the area offers so many perks to their students.  Plus, if you sign up early, you get a 10% discount, a savings of $250!
