Teacher Training

Eugene Yoga Teacher TrainingMudra’s Yoga Alliance Certified, 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training is cultivated with high quality, skill, authenticity and depth of understanding at the forefront. Whether you want to teach or solely desire a deep-dive into the heart of yoga, this program is for you! We are honored to offer you a transformative experience that allows you to root and advance your practice, broaden your perspective, and share yoga with others.

This training is as close to an immersion as possible while keeping it local and making it accessible within your schedule over the course of Friday evenings and weekends. We believe that this set-up gives you a walking, breathing, living awareness of yoga.

In this training you will learn:

  • The history, philosophy and lifestyle upon which yoga is founded;
  • proper alignment of the asanas through thorough exploration of the practice;
  • anatomy and physiology and how they act within asanas;
  • comprehensive instruction techniques to actively guide students in vinyasa flow as well as gentle and restorative yoga; and
  • the business and ethics of working in the yoga industry.

Participating in a yoga teacher training is a powerfully transformative experience. The individuals who come together to walk through it become great support for one another. You’ll practice, study, discover, discuss, eat, explore, analyze, laugh and spend heart-filled weekends together.
