Yoga Teacher Training

A unique Hatha Yoga Experience where you will deepen your personal practice of yoga on and off the mat using Pantajali’s 8 limb approach. We have found it better to have small groups in our teacher trainings to make sure that our trainees receive the much-needed attention in their training.

There will be field trips, where we step away from our mats to practice yoga in your everyday life. You will learn what it really means to be mindful of your thoughts, actions, and words. Claudia takes a homeschooling approach to her teaching where she does not plan what you will learn until she intuitively understands where you are mentally that day. All of the curriculum will be covered and put together at the end of your training like a beautiful puzzle. Your training course will teach you how to conquer your fears from speaking in front of others to trusting yourself and actions. The wealth of your knowledge will be solidified when you begin your practice / karma teaching.

It will be a journey like no other. This is a foundational course that covers all of the beautiful gifts that yoga has to offer.We focus on Breathing, Yoga Foundations, Alignment, Modifications and corrections, and most of all- How to teach:)Our goal is for you to establish a strong foundation in all styles of yoga. You will be able to teach and practice on your own many different styles; Hatha, Vinyasa, Gentle, Beginner’s, Ashtanga influenced, Iyengar- influenced, Restorative, Yin, Chair Yoga, and be able to assist and give many modifications as needed for all ages to all abilities. Claudia has a history of working with Reconstructive Surgeons along with Chinese Medicine Doctors and Chiropractors to also teach you the therapeutic aspects of yoga.
