200-Hour Teacher Training

Are you a yoga student hoping to deepen your relationship to contemporary yoga practice? Do you want to lay a strong foundation for success as a yoga instructor? Are you inspired by both tradition and innovation?

You’re in the right place. The Kindness Yoga 200-hour Teacher Training is a powerful opportunity to delve deep into the art and science of yoga with our team of experienced teacher trainers.

Most of our trainings emphasize studying – and learning to instruct – one of the most popular forms of yoga asana in America: vinyasa (meaning “to place in a special way”). Vinyasa yoga features flowing movement, breath awareness, and deliberately sequencing poses in a way that is safe, intentional, and even transformational.

We strive to help our trainees express their individual gifts with grace and confidence. You’ll practice and polish your poses, learn innovative and effective strategies for creating your own class themes and sequences, and become comfortable with demonstrations, hands-on assists, and the art of leadership. You’ll study alignment, anatomy, history, philosophy, breathwork and meditation. Our approach is more experiential than lecture-based, so you can expect plenty of discussion, peer feedback, and creative and fun drills that build confidence and the wisdom that only comes from experience.

We offer the 200-hour Teacher Training in multiple formats (from 4-week intensives to 6-months of weekends) and different sizes (with maximum sizes ranging from 12 to 24) to suit different schedules in different locations throughout the year. View upcoming trainings below, then email our team to learn more and enroll! Many of these trainings fill up in advance, so reach out early to secure your space.
