200 Hour

Yoga Teacher Training

Pura Vida School of Yoga is deeply rooted in traditional yoga foundations, inner self reflection, and proper anatomical alignment. 

 

This teacher training is dedicated to those with a desire to instruct

Vinyasa, Yin,

Hatha, Nidra, Meditation and Pranayama practice...

 

...as well as those wanting to deepen a personal yoga practice and

strengthen the

 mind/body connection. 

What is yoga teacher training?

At Pura Vida we believe that becoming a yoga instructor is about more than guiding a physical practice, but about embracing yoga for the well rounded lifestyle it is- with a strong mind/body connection at the center of our school's focus. 

As a Mother/Daughter duo- it is our intention with Pura Vida School of Yoga to spread the traditional teachings of ancient yogic practices that assist us in returning to the inner self, to as many people as we can. Yoga has impacted our lives so significantly in unique ways, that we have dedicated ourselves to guiding others through not only this practice, but the teaching of this practice.

Yoga teacher training is a 200 hour course filled with posture clinics, class style lectures, inner and outer connection activities, self reflection, personal development strategies (& more!) meant to provide you with the knowledge needed to guide a variety of dynamic asana, pranayama, and meditation classes. You will also learn a variety of tools used to quiet the mind and assist you going inward.

Our inner self is free from past experiences, stories we may have told ourselves, criticism 

from self and others and all forms of judgment. Guiding a yoga class from that inner space allows those you are guiding to also connect to that space within themselves- and that is where yoga has the opportunity to become deeply healing and very personal for the practitioner. 

We believe yoga and this training will help you to embrace productive communication, inner strength, and find deeper, more meaningful connections within your relationships- just like it did for us!
