Each module will provide you with a full immersion in practice and study. If you want to deepen your yoga knowledge and education but are unable to register for the entire course, you may participate in individual modules.

( In order to qualify to earn your 200 hr yoga certification, you need to complete all three modules )

Designed for YOU

The program is extremely flexible and is appropriate for beginners, certified teachers, those who want to learn to teach. It’s also for anyone who LOVES YOGA and wants a deeper experience and broader knowledge. Beyond The Pose Yoga Trainings can be tailored to fit your personal intentions and your schedule. All hours can be done in person, virtually, or a combination of both.

Whether you want an immersive experience to deepen your practice or expand your knowledge to sharpen your teaching, each module can be taken individually – register for only the modules that appeal to you – or take all three for your 200 hour Teacher certification. If you are interested in the 200 hr certification you can take as long as you need to complete all 3 modules.

If it’s not possible to complete all 3 modules in one year, you can spread them out over as many years as you need. The modules will continue to be offered at least once a year. The space between the modules will allow you to return to your daily life and integrate the new information.

Each morning is dedicated to your practice. We will begin with 15–30 minutes of seated meditation that will allow you to settle into your practice and bear witness to whatever is present for you. The seated practice is followed by a strong, intelligently sequenced Vinyasa/Kundinyasana practice that will allow you to experience your physical edge and grow as a practitioner.

The afternoon is dedicated to becoming more knowledgeable and insightful. You will work on every aspect of yoga and teaching, from learning greater depth in anatomy, injury prevention, and intelligent sequencing for each region of the body to using purposeful, impactful language when you provide instructions. You will learn to generate sequences, teach segments of classes and weave a theme throughout your class for greatest impact.

You’ll deepen your practice by working on postures and their modifications and have the opportunity to enhance your teaching by assisting and adjusting your peers throughout the training. You’ll learn to work with your own body more skillfully and efficiently, which will serve you in your practice for years to come.


Each module goes beyond the basics

Provides a full immersion in practice and study. The modules contain anatomy, asana technique, injury management, and philosophical inquiry.

→ As a practitioner,

you’ll explore postures and kriya, cultivate a strong meditation practice and more refinement in your practice.

→ As a teacher,

you will learn to develop sequences that create greater balance and smoothly combine Vinyasa with Kundalini kriyas, pranayama and meditations. You’ll be able to instruct your students in clear, accessible language and be equipped to help students manage their injuries.

→ As a professional and business owner,

you will learn to optimize your efforts through winning business building strategies, ethical practices and proven methods to create a work/life you love.
