Our Yoga Teacher Training is taught over the period of one-year with intensive weekend courses once a month. We intentionally designed our program to enable students to apply what they learned in their sessions each month to their own practice and lifestyle.

Here are some of the highlights of the LHAA Yoga Teacher Training Program:

  • 12 months of intensive and thorough training – one weekend a month – in all aspects of yoga: asana (postures), pranayama (breath work), yoga history, philosophy, and ethics, yoga of sound, meditation, mindfulness, chakras, ayurveda, precise and safe alignment, business, and vast anatomy knowledge.

  • A beautiful facility that inspires peace, wellness, and a powerful mind-body connection.
  • A lifestyle program that encourages you to integrate your practice on the mat to your daily life.
  • Training that emphasizes universal principals of alignment and draws from many styles of yoga.
  • Encouragement to develop your own teaching style based on your strengths, preferences and life experience.
  • Emphasis of fundamental concepts so you can easily embody the material and put it to practical use immediately.
  • High level of student engagement through questions, demonstration and take-home projects.
  • Anatomy and kinesiology lessons through asana practice and exploration. Anatomy is focused and immensely practical.
  • Learning practical knowledge of the working human body and the ability to impart that knowledge to your students in meaningful ways.
  • Understanding the essence of a pose and how to make it accessible to students.
  • Learning how to use communication to cue effectively, how to sequence a class, and how to modify every pose.
