Practice Everywhere Foundations

 200-Hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training

Yoga Alliance Approved : RYS200

Learn to Share Your Passion for Vinyasa Yoga.

Practice Everywhere's 200 Hour Yoga Teacher training is an experiential learning course that is for anyone who is interested in deepening their own personal application of yoga in their everyday life and may hope to lead other people in vinyasa (flow-based) yoga group practices.

This training focuses on becoming a leader of group yoga classes to the general public. In addition to learning how to lead group classes in this training participants will be invited to go deep into the system of Yoga understanding its foundational practices and philosophies, and their application to  modern daily living.  The practice of yoga is also intended to be highly personal, and as such the training asks participants to consider Yoga's influence on their own lifestyle, habits, decision making, and psychology, as well as learn how to offer guidance that can be adaptable to students from different walks of life. 

Practice Everywhere's aim is respect of the origins of yoga, to uphold high standards of inclusivity and access, and to remain true to the belief that the lifestyle practices adopted and adapted from system of Yoga hold tremendous benefits for all people if those people have access to them.  We seek to do our part of increasing accessibility through diversity in training.   

We offer 1 Diversity & Equity scholarship to an individual who is BIPOC or LGBTQIA+, and 1 need-based scholarship. Those who are interested in one of the above scholarships is encouraged to send a 500-750 essay sharing the interest in this training to info@honestsoulyoga.com for our

What past participants have to say ...

Teacher training with Practice Everywhere is the best decision I ever made. It not only improved my personal practice, but gave me the tools I need to share it with countless others."

 

- Ali R., Nashville

 

"Teacher Training with Practice Everywhere & Honest Soul Yoga was transformational. It would have been impossible to imagine what I gained from it, coming into the course. I learned more about myself, my existence and how I want to show up in this world for myself and others while learning lifelong techniques and knowledge around this precious practice of yoga. I got stronger, healed my body and mind, made lifelong friends and learned what it means to love, connect and learn. The curriculum is so well curated and the difference in teaching styles and mentor approaches only makes it more well rounded and experiential. Julia is an INCREDIBLY smart and wise anatomy teacher and human. I have no idea how she knows so much. Suzie is an INCREDIBLY smart and bold soul. I am inspired by both their journeys and hope to some day partner up and do amazing yoga things in the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion realm. Yoga can truly be for anybody and Im excited about brining it to many."

- Eskadar, Northern Virginia 

"Yoga is my way of life. Practice Everywhere opened their arms and embraced me, allow me to breathe, honor my body and push pass my beliefs."

- Angela, Northern Virginia

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to be vaccinated to participate in in-person training.

Yes. If you are unvaccinated you may participate in online training, but all people who wish to participate in-person must be vaccinated for Covid19. This is because our training will include participation that is not socially distanced and includes hands-on assistance.

 

Do I need a desire to teach to take this training?

No! Plenty of trainees have worked with Julia, Suzie, and our guest facilitators without a desire to teach... or at least, at first. Most often we find that through training eventually trainees discover what sharing yoga means for them. That said, this training is and always has been through the lens of sharing yoga with others. And through that lens we formulate our personal work, and also decipher how/when/what to share!

What style of Yoga Asana will I learn to teach?

This training emphasizes a flowing style of yoga, sometimes referred to as vinyasa, and spends a majority of time examining yoga through the group class.  Our lead trainers roots are in Power Flow, but have expanded over the last decade their practice, teaching, and teacher education to include new innovative approaches to vinyasa, and draws from their collective experience in personal training, group fitness, yoga life coaching, and conscious-business ownership. As such this training also brings in electives that explore softer approaches to Power Flow, functional movement, slow flow, and quiet yoga. 

Do I need experience with Yoga to enroll?

Yes. We ask that everyone who enrolls have a regular yoga flow practice of at least 1 year, and preferably 2. While some jump right in with less experience and do very well, it is recommended to have a couple years of regular practice before enrolling in a teacher training.

What certification will I earn through this training?

Upon successful completion of this training you will become a Certified Yoga Teacher (CYT) through Practice Everywhere. This training is also registered with Yoga Alliance if you choose to also choose to join YA as a Registered Yoga Teacher. Some states and employers may require additional credentialing and every individual is encouraged to do their own research regarding certification requirements. 

Is this training fully online?

We have fully online, fully in-person, and hybrid options available.

Do I need to attend online sessions in person?

Some online sessions are synchronous and some are asynchronous. While some absences may occur, we ask participants to be live in the virtual classroom. Playbacks of previous lectures will be available for reference in the event of an absence. You are required to have 85% + in-person attendance to qualify for certification.
