Yoga is a journey toward spiritual, mental and physical wellness. It is union, unfolding within and all around. The timeless teachings of yoga have not only survived through the ages but also thrived in this modern era.  Through yoga, we are inspired to live simply and compassionately, dedicated to realizing our potential, our truth. The benefits are immeasurable…

Teaching yoga is a natural extension of your experience of it, rather you intend to teach in a classroom setting or simply by affecting others through how you live in harmony in your own life. As you learn and experience, you will grow and inspire those around you to come along on the journey.  

The Day Yoga Foundation Yoga Teacher Training is a holistic and experiential approach to Hatha Yoga. We will explore multiple styles of asana as well as meditation and pranayama.
