Teacher Training

Thinking about becoming a Yoga Instructor? Simply want to deepen your own practice?

Our 200-hour comprehensive programs will give you the foundations you need to deepen your personal practice and become a transformational yoga teacher. They are ideal for serious students of yoga AND aspiring teachers. The program comprises three areas of study: The Theory and Practice of Yoga, Yoga Philosophy, and The Art of Teaching.

Trainings take place during select weekends for a period of multiple months (dates below). Students are expected to take an additional 3 classes per week to expand on your practice. Those that are interested in teaching will have an opportunity to teach community classes at Afterglow Yoga upon completion of the program.

In these expansive trainings you’ll learn how to help your students — and yourself! — develop a heightened sense of body and self-awareness to deepen their practice on the mat, but most importantly how to show them ways to take that awareness off the mat and into their daily lives.

Come Take the Journey with Afterglow!
