After 25 years of practicing Yoga I am super excited to offer my first foundational 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training program. This training is perfect for you if you desire to inspire others to a more conscious open integrated life - or to deepen your own personal practice with a sincere commitment to self- transformation.

This residential program will take place every weekend for 13 weeks and will allow you the time to digest, process, implement the scared science of Yoga into your daily life.

Learn to truly teach, it's not about memorizing & reciting sequences. Instead an emphasis is placed on teaching principles for clearly instructing students bodies into alignment. Letting your inner light shine and being authentic. This program will equip you with all the necessary tools to start teaching Yoga & at the same time the course will deepen your knowledge of your self taking you on a inner journey on & off your mat, which is the ultimate practice of Yoga.

The training is primarily a fusion of Hatha Yoga & Vinyasa flow. In addition we will dive into Gentle, Restorative, and Partner Yoga. This training has a traditional emphasis, delving deeper into Philosophy, Pranayama and Meditation. We will explore many viewpoints & pathways of the Yoga Tradition, Unity & acceptance of many paths to One Divine Source is emphasized.

We will be doing our training on the beautiful Island of Maui on the west side in Lahaina at Island Spirit Yoga Studio. It truly is a healing sanctuary!
