2021 200-HOUR TEACHER TRAINING

Republic of Yoga’s 5-star rated teacher training is deeply rooted in tradition. The ancient teachings of yoga philosophy together with Tibetan Buddhist principles provide a unique lens and logical approach to a system designed to foster wellness, clarity and wisdom through the practices of Hatha yoga. The course is designed for those who wish to become yoga teachers, as well as those wishing to deepen their practice and learn not only what yoga is, but how and why it works as a system for balance in life.

There has been high demand for next year’s program and we are offering an in studio option as well as an online option (or a hybrid) to suit your needs and comfort level. Join our seasoned faculty live in the studio or from home virtually. The course will meet one weekend a month and on Wednesday evenings, beginning March 19, 2021.  (Registration ends March 15, 2021)
