Key Components of Teacher Training
Why Learn to Teach Yoga?
Learning to teach yoga is a powerful way to thoroughly understand the many facets of your practice. Teacher training is more than conducting a balanced and effective yoga class. It is about learning how to share yoga with others in all moments of daily living. This involves practicing non-harmful speech with your family, listening and not interrupting your co-workers, or simply making space to be fully present with those around you. Teaching yoga comes in all forms. It is up to you to determine how you will share your yoga – the possibilities are endless!
The Power to Be Vulnerable
We believe in the power of vulnerability, for it is in this space that the deepest form of connection can occur. Develop the transparency of truly being seen and heard by others and to how to hold a safe space for them to experience the same. When we are fully grounded and open within ourselves, there is no need to hide. This is why teaching yoga can create one of the greatest opportunities for personal growth and spiritual healing.
The Science & Art of Teaching
Skillful teaching requires a balance of precision and play. Gain the tools to execute a challenging, yet accessible yoga class for a diverse population. You will learn anatomy and energetics in an organized format to effectively adapt the practice to the needs of individuals. Leave this training with the grace to integrate your voice, creativity, and passion.

Where We'll Be
Isolated from the world for 5 decades due to military rule, visiting Myanmar is like entering a time warp. The world center of Theraveda Buddhism for 1,000 years, spirituality is woven into the fabric of the country's culture. As the first international teacher training to take place in the country, you will be one of the first to experience this mystical and unspoiled destination in a yoga retreat setting.
Located in central Myanmar, Inle Lake is the largest fresh water lake in the country, densely inhabited by many ethnic minorities and surrounded by the lush Blue Mountains rising 1,000m+ above sea level.
During your time off, take a day hike through the lush hills to visit local tribe villages, glide through the floating gardens and market by boat, cycle to the local winery for a breathtaking sunset view or visit famous hilltop and cave temple ruins. Due to it's unique location, Inle Lake enjoys cooler climates than most of southeast Asia, an abundance of local produce and close vicinity to some of the most fascinating pagoda and temple sites.
