YogaSource Palo Alto is excited to announce the dates for our annual Teacher Training in downtown Palo Alto! Join us for 10 weekends from February to May 2020 to advance your practice, cultivate equanimity, and journey into teaching!

Sign up for a FREE teacher Training Info Session

This foundational 200-Hour training, accredited by Yoga Alliance, is designed to give students a deeper understanding of the 8 limbs of yoga, including the philosophy, pranayama, meditation, and asana — as well as provide students with tools to develop their own equanimity, sense of self, and authentic voice. On that foundation, students will begin to explore the vast pedagogy of yoga, build skills think critically about the practices of yoga, and teach others using a simple, methodical approach. Students will practice advanced alignment-based asana each morning and dive into discussions, lectures, and hands-on skills labs each afternoon.
