“With community, we will offer a transformative practice of courageous love.”
2018 YTT Graduates


In this training, participants will deepen their personal yoga practice and build solid teaching techniques. This training is grounded in the physical aspect of yoga, enriched with mindfulness and philosophy. The practice of yoga has the potential to take the practitioner closer to health on a physical, mental, and emotional level. We believe in the healing potential of yoga as an incredible tool for personal liberation and a bridge to social liberation. In our training, participants and faculty alike work together to offer a radically inclusive culture of yoga that aims to change the way we know health.


This training begins with a 4-day immersion followed by a series of weekends. The program spans six months: July – December.

Ana was a dear friend, artist, drummer, dancer, community member, amazing cook, big-hearted, generous, easy-to-laugh inspiration. As Ana neared the end of her time with us, she became one of the studio’s most important teachers. She was grace embodied.
