This program develops truly incredible teachers!!

Teaching yoga is an art and a science.  It is a conversation, a dance, an interpersonal reciprocity between teacher and students. Join Sarahjoy and her training team as you develop your knowledge and your skill set as well as your personal artistry as a teacher.
Your life informs your yoga, your yoga informs your life.  Out of that dance arise your perspective, your passion, your voice, and your teaching style!  Combined with the systemotology of amrita yoga, you can be confident in your yoga and teaching methodology as well as the heart (and mind) you’ll bring to all of your relationships with your students.
amrita yoga is a form of vinyasa yoga with influences from Ayurveda, physical therapy, neuroscience, yoga philosophy and psychology, pranayama, and mindfulness. amrita yoga emphasizes the bio-mechanics of alignment, anatomy, kinesiology, and rehabilitative processes. Click here to learn more about the style of amrita yoga.
