200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training 

The Sacred Spiral School of Yoga offers 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training for yogis with at least one year of committed practice who are ready to take the next step. 

About The Sacred Spiral School of Yoga

Our school approaches Yoga as a full-spectrum practice that encompasses physical, subtle, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of Being, a set of tools that empower the Self through ongoing discovery. In Teacher Training, you will learn about:

                           ~ Philosophy of Yoga, including key           

                              concepts and texts applied to daily 

                              experience on and off the mat

                           ~ Asana (physical practice), including                                                poses, alignment, purpose,

                              sequencing, and teaching best practices

                            ~ Anatomy & Physiology

                            ~ Energy & The Subtle Body,

                               including chakras, bandhas, koshas, 

                               gunas, and prana vayus

                            ~ Meditation, Pranayama, & Ayurveda

                            ~ Teaching, Ethics, & the Yogic Life

You will emerge from the training with a deeper understanding of your Self, and with the skills and experience required to teach and modify Yoga classes for any population.

Training Formats, Dates, & Location

We offer two separate training formats.

Our Weekend Training meets over 10 weekends (Saturday and Sunday), once approximately every 3 weeks, from September 2019 through March 2020.

Our Intensive Training meets over three 8-day sessions spaced through the Fall and early Winter: one in September, one in November, and one in December 2019.

We regard Yoga as an essentially expressive and natural way of life, and we will practice surrounded by art and nature. Trainings are held in Joshua Tree, California, at The Roadside Attraction, studio of the artists Douglas O Smith and Bruce Carleton, and outdoors in the wilderness of Joshua Tree National Park.
