This 200 Hour RYT training is held In Salt Lake City, Utah and is assisted by Mary Cain with special guest instructors. This course of study is certified by Yoga Alliance and completion will result in earning a RYT 200 HR certification.

Yogic Approach

This training is born of deep study with Rod Stryker and ParaYoga, Yoga Therapy and Principles of Alignment. The focus is to empower students with the knowledge of all eight limbs of yoga and the study of  yoga philosophy in combination with modern mind/body science.

With a concentration on the importance of breath and its relationship to physical and energetic movement,  a central theme will be functional alignment paired with intelligent sequencing. The course aims to lay the foundation for integrating asana with pranayama and meditation to create more powerful effects from practice, and ultimately help students begin to understand the  full transformative potential of yoga practice.
