Teacher Trainings

We are excitedly planning our RYT-200 Teacher Training to begin in January 2022! Our yoga school is led by Meadow DeFosche-Christ, RYT-500. Whether you want to become a yoga teacher, or if you are looking to delve deeper into your own personal practice, you do not have to be an advanced practitioner to enroll. Our program will certify graduates at a level exceeding the Yoga Alliance 200-hour teacher training requirements. 


Please if you have any questions, or would like to receive further information when it becomes available. 

Our training is rooted in Classical Yoga philosophy. Pantanjali’s Yoga Sutra is at the center of these teachings. In the Sutras, Patanjali outlines the eight limbs of yoga, the eightfold path of spiritual growth and self-discovery. These limbs are ethical guidelines on how to live a vibrant, meaningful life. Asana (yoga postures) is the most well-known of the limbs, but it’s only a part of the story, for this path offers so much more. Each of the eight limbs addresses a different aspect of our multifaceted being, and together they act as a road map to living a yogic lifestyle.

Our program will likely meet for one weekend in person for eight months, and will also require homework, essays, and practice assignments.  Yoga Garden PBO offers opportunities for teaching practice and continued mentorship within our studio community at the conclusion of our training program.
