“I am not sure I can describe the teacher training experience. It awakened in me a deep spiritual curiosity. It helped me discover parts of myself that had long been hidden or forgotten. It was fun. I made great friends. My practice got better. More importantly, it scratched open a door of possibilities that stretches as far as we are willing to take it.”

q+a session: january 16 at 6:45pm

be awakened: yoga study + teacher training

** {be} illuminated: yoga study + teacher training - summer 2018 **

Intelligently and uniquely designed, this experience through {be}Studio will prepare students to not only teach and guide others in the practice, but more importantly bring them back home to themselves.

Our 200hr program is a tapestry of ancient wisdom, real-world application and in-depth soul journeying. Students will learn to weave the practice into their hearts and lives, taking it off the mat. We whole-heartedly believe in “student first, teacher second.” As such, our program is designed to immerse students into the devotional, integral, and illuminating parts of the yoga practice. 

Yoga extends beyond the physical postures and into the vast landscape that is our physical, mental and emotional bodies. Alongside of learning proper alignment and mindful movement, students will be guided through the other seven limbs of the practice, which is all designed to bring you back into harmony with your most expansive and integrated self. 

We use experiential learning to dive deeper into the practice, including a day with horses to learn mindfulness and energetics. This program also offers consistent opportunities for the student to engage in their own "shadow work," seeing the whole of who we are and being accountable to healing our wounds so that we may move forward with great integrity and empowerment. 

More than just learning how to teach yoga, expect to learn how to be in your life fully, with ehart.

Be surrounded by a group of teachers who are here to support and uplift you, a space ready to receive you and a program that is truly unlike any other. All skill levels welcome!
