Teaching yoga requires sensitivity, compassion and understanding, as well as lots of practice and technical and therapeutic knowledge. This program is designed for your own essence to radiate through, to communicate your own voice and expression of yoga naturally and with ease. To that intent, one must become free of the ego’s attachment of “am I good enough to teach?” Yes, you are! If you truly care to give, to serve, to inspire yourself and others, you are indeed a strong candidate for teacher’s training. It’s about joy of learning, not intimidation. Our program is carefully designed to inspire you and allow you to open to your full potential.
Our graduates work in their communities with great success. Many have intitaited their own business. They graduate the program with the skill to help common concerns for backs, hips, necks/shoulders, knees, spine, as well as increasing strength and stamina.

As a healthy, athletic executive, I took a hard fall from an orchestra pit and wounded my back with bulging discs, suffering from a lot of pain for a long time. I found the yoga school and within six months most of my pain and suffering amended. Today I am fully recovered from the structural damage and I regularly attend classes, free of pain. I am forever grateful to the teachers at the Yoga School.

With yoga I got my head and heart in the right place to be successful. Of course there where times when I over indulged, but fortunately, yoga offers a self-compassionate attitude toward change. I gave myself credit for positive change and recognized that over time, small steps lead to big results.
After my husband’s death from cancer, I felt depleted both body and soul. Quite lost, a friend encouraged me to take yoga classes at the Yoga School. I regained my strength and spirit. By the end of the year, the kind-hearted teachers at the Yoga School helped me to lift my grief and ease the sadness of losing my husband.
While in California training in a yoga certification program for weeks on end, I pulled my knee practicing advanced yoga without proper contraindications. I found The Yoga School and started practicing the yoga that helps rehabilitate weakened joints, especially knees and ankles. Within a year, my knee is free of pain. I owe a lot to the Yoga School for their knowledge on knee therapy. Being free of knee pain allows me my joy to teach yoga, sail, walk, dance and love life.

With severe scoliosis, I felt the benefits of yoga in my home practice. After seeing how I had the freedom in class to direct my movements and withdraw form poses often not suitable for scoliosis, I have taken yoga classes at The Yoga School of Therapeutics now for years. I am thrilled to attend a yoga school that gives me freedom in class to direct poses suitable for scoliosis.
