"Yoga teacher training helped me in so many ways. I learned not only how to teach yoga effectively and safely but I learned how to use my voice in my everyday life. My teachers, classmates, and guest lecturers nurtured my self-discovery and finding my path. I wouldn't have done my training anywhere else, the community here is incredible."

— Cheyenne, 200-hour Grad, Fall 2017

"YTT with Kindness is an experience I will never forget. I have learned more about my deepest self - and I have learned skills that will make me a more courageous and authentic teacher. The teachers at Kindness create an environment for inward and outward growth that should be experienced by all."

— Kaitlin, 200-hour Grad, Winter 2017

"When I signed up for YTT, I knew that my body was going to be challenged and changed - I didn't expect the training to touch me on such an emotional and spiritual level, and now I am even more excited about sharing this healing with others!"

— Sabeth, 200-hour Grad, Summer 2016

What sets Kindness apart?

We believe that delving deeper into yoga requires training that will develop both your skills and your heart. It demands an intimate setting where attention is personal, trainers create relationships with each of their students, and close bonds and long-term friendships blossom between trainees. It demands laughter as well as learning! We also believe that it takes a village – a diverse, inclusive community of teachers, classes, workshops, and students – all ready to help lift trainees to the height of their own unique potential.

That’s the kind of training program we have created.

In Yoga Teacher Training at Kindness you will learn the most critical skills of teaching yoga, including poses, alignment, speaking confidently from the heart, creative sequencing, and much more. But we will also facilitate your growth as a student so that you can continue to explore whatever calls out to you. You will be exposed to the enormous diversity Kindness Yoga has to offer, and have the opportunity to practice with great teachers in styles that you love.

Our approach emphasizes learning by doing and becoming part of something greater. You will practice the most important drills for building fluency as a teacher, speaker, and member of community. You will work creatively to deliver sequences, themes, and presentations.

We never stop being awed by the enduring friendships that blossom in these trainings, and the levels of success our graduates achieve. Teachers trained at Kindness are working and playing together here in Colorado… and all over the world! When you complete any Kindness Yoga training, you’ll become part of this broad network of colleagues and opportunities.

100-hour: the First Step link swirl

For the first time, Kindness is offering 100-hour Intensives. These trainings are developed to meet the needs of those interested in continuing their yoga education without taking the full 200-hr training. The Self-study and Practice Intensive is a great way to dip into your personal practice more deeply, which includes the physical asana practice as well as the philosophy and greater history of yoga. For those who have already completed a 200-hr training, gain confidence and inspiration through an alignment-based training in our Align and Flow Teaching Intensive. 

200-hour: the Leap link swirl

Our comprehensive 200-hour teacher trainings are an in-depth journey for two groups: dedicated students who wish to deepen their understanding of yoga, and those who hope to become yoga teachers. It’s an extraordinary opportunity designed to inform both your practice and your life. Taking one of these trainings is widely considered the first step towards teaching yoga, as either selfless service or a profession. Our curriculum exceeds Yoga Alliance standards, and upon completion students may register at the RYT-200 level.

300-hour: the Next Level link swirl

Our 300-hour teacher training is designed to help you become a leader and/or professional in your yoga community. You know the basics of leading a yoga class – now develop your authentic voice, refine your teaching skills and start offering your students more intelligent, effective and inspiring offerings.

Graduation from a 200-hour teacher training is a prerequisite for this program. It is preferred that your 200-hour training is Yoga Alliance-registered, so that upon completion of our 300-hour program, you may be eligible to register with Yoga Alliance and teach at the RYT-500 level.*  Once registered, an RYT-500 may provide credit-bearing continuing education classes and workshops to other yoga teachers.

*Those who did not graduate from a Yoga Alliance-registered 200-hour training may still participate in the 300-hour advanced course, but will not be eligible to register at the 500-level with Yoga Alliance.
