Who is this training for?

This training is for you if you have maintained a committed yoga practice and are hungry to take the next step in deepening your understanding of this ancient practice and potentially sharing it with others. 

Format of the Training

This training is 100% in-person and will consist of 6 immersive Training Weekends, in-studio practice (a 6-month Membership is included with your tuition), practice teaching, reading and reflection on historical texts, and more.

The culmination of our training is a unique one-on-one mentorship with a member of our experienced Teaching Team. This will fast-track your teaching skills and prepare you for teaching an in-studio 60-minute Vinyasa Yoga class towards the end of the training.

Our training group will be limited to 16 participants to promote an intimate and personalized environment.

Course Focus

Our yoga school is in the vinyasa style of yoga in which sequences of postures are linked to create a “moving meditation.” As part of the Ashtanga Vinyasa lineage, importance will be placed on linking the movements intentionally with breath. We will focus on teaching in a group class setting to a variety of levels.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this training, you will have the tools to:

  • Thoughtfully sequence a vinyasa yoga class (asana)
  • Create the space for spontaneity and creativity within those sequences
  • Give physical adjustments (assists) to students
  • Lead guided meditation (dhyana) and breathwork (pranayama)
  • Manage a classroom of students safely and effectively
  • Create opportunities for teaching in your community

Program Curriculum: Yoga Alliance

200-Hour Approved

Techniques, Training, and Practice 100 hours
50 hours will occur within the designated Training Weekends. The additional 40 hours will be achieved by taking at least 2 in-studio classes per week with designated teachers (Cat Crawford, Stephanie Kersting, and more) during the 6 month training period.
Anatomy and Physiology 40 hours
Yoga Humanities (Yogic Texts, History of Yoga, etc.) 40 hours
Much of this content involves reading, reflection, and essays, so most of these hours will be completed outside of Training Weekends. Expect 2 hours of this type of work per week. Review and discussion will occur within Training Weekends.
Professional Essentials (Practice teaching, Teaching Methodology, and Professional Development) 60 hours
2 hours per week outside of Training Weekends must be dedicated to Practice Teaching. This includes a one-on-one Mentorship with an experienced member of the 502 Power Yoga teaching team towards the end of your training.
Total Training Hours 240 hours

Required Texts

These texts are to be acquired before the training and will be read/referenced/studied throughout the program. No reading is required before the program begins!  

We recommend purchasing your own copies of each of these texts as they will be the beginning of your own yoga library and you will likely look back on them time and time again. Physical copies are preferred over digital for the ability to highlight, make notes, earmark, and refer back to key passages. Please shop local if possible!
