Yoga teacher training is a big step, a big commitment, and brings about big change. When you make the decision to enter yoga teacher training you're offering your time, money, and heart to this journey of personal growth and development. We understand how important the process is to you and promise to deliver a training that truly prepares you for the next step as a teacher. Seva's teacher training asks a lot of its trainees because it takes a lot to teach this practice. When you train with us you train with our community, and experience what it truly means to lead a live class, hold space for your students, and create an experience that honestly reflects you as a teacher. 

Seva Yoga's teacher training mixes ancient and modern schools of thought and movement, emphasizing new and evidence-based biological and psychological research. This training considers the Vedic roots of the practice and combines that with a strong scientific element to help teachers form their own understanding of a practice rooted in ancient philosophies that has grown contemporary branches. Old ideas of depth and extreme flexibility are met with present-day functional movement, range of motion, and stability. We believe blending these ideas prepare teachers to hold space for modern-day practitioners.   

"I hope, if you feel the need to take this step in your life, that you trust us to walk with you. I never found the right time to train, the right time found me and I just had to catch up. It's a big and scary step, but we can do it together." -- Taylor

Our 2019 training schedule consists of 7 modules and 3 separate tracks:

200 Hour Complete Training:
Upon completing this track teachers register with Yoga Alliance for the RYT-200 designation. Teachers on this track also complete various homework assignments, in-studio community teachings, observations, and exams. We believe this helps integrate all the information and prepares teachers to lead a class and hold space for students.
$2250 / $2000 if paid in full by December 1st. $500 non-refundable deposit secures your space. Full track participants get 6 months unlimited yoga at Seva from January through June to help meet their class attendance requirement.

Personal Development Training:
Participants on this track do not need to meet the exam, community teaching, observation, and class development requirements of the full training. This track will not allow registration with Yoga Alliance.
$2000 / $1750 if paid in full by December 1st. $500 non-refundable deposit secures your space.

CEUs for Current Teachers:
Modules are available to current teachers and provide corresponding in-contact continuing education hours.
Prices vary per module. Seva teachers and graduates receive discounts. Contact Taylor for details.


Module 1, Jan 25-27:  Philosophy, Ethics, Lifestyle
Friday 5:30pm-8:30pm, Saturday and Sunday 9am-5pm
Explore the Bhagavad Gita, Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, and Mark Singleton’s Yoga Body, and their relationship to the ancient and modern practice. Teachers will discuss the current ethical landscape in the yoga world, including their responsibilities and boundaries as yoga teachers and students, and the “yogic” lifestyle individually and as a whole. (Required readings must be completed before this module.)

Module 2, Feb 21-24: Teaching Methodology I
Thursday and Friday 5:30pm-8:30pm, Saturday and Sunday 9am-5pm
This module includes the asana clinic in which teachers learn how to perform, teach, adjust and assist all of the postures of the master sequence. Teachers begin practice teaching, round-robin teaching, and give and receive feedback.

Module 3, Mar 14-17:  Teaching Methodology II
Thursday and Friday 5:30pm-8:30pm, Saturday and Sunday 9am-5pm
This module expands on the previous module, challenging teachers to find their own presence and voice while leading a group class. Learning styles, cues, modifications, and options are now incorporated and teaching styles emerge.

Module 4, Apr 11-14:  Anatomy & Physiology
Thursday and Friday 5:30pm-8:30pm, Saturday and Sunday 9am-5pm
Explore the structure of the body as well as the functions and relationships of those body parts with each other and within the practice of yoga. Teachers learn to apply this knowledge to the practitioner as an individual, to a pose and how it functions in both the body and a sequence, and for the various purposes of stability, strength, mobility, and flexibility.

Module 5, May 3-5:  The Energy Body
Friday 5:30pm-8:30pm, Saturday and Sunday 9am-5pm
A look at prana, how it generates action, moves through us, around us, and can be moved. Teachers begin by studying the more abstract chakras, koshas, and vayus, then explore the more concrete practices of pranayama, the bandhas, meditation, and mudras to see how they work together and relate to prana.

Module 6, May 31-Jun 2:  Sequencing with Purpose
Friday 5:30pm-8:30pm, Saturday and Sunday 9am-5pm
The best yoga classes have purpose. A good sequence combines the basics of yoga into something greater than the sum of its parts. Sequencing goes beyond stringing poses together and having an awesome playlist, it’s what differentiates between teachers with good memorization of postures and cues, and teachers with a strong understanding of the practice they’re trying to share.

Module 7, Jun 21-23:  Teaching Advanced Poses
“Advanced” poses typically require a certain amount of practice and discipline, over time, to execute. While exceptions to the rule exist, most practitioners with a desire to learn these postures need an informed teacher to assist them. This module explores inversions, arm balances, and some deeper, trickier backbends usually reserved for intermediate to advanced level asana practices. Teachers learn how to safely teach them in stages, adjust and assist them, and purposefully incorporate them into a sequence, as well as when to avoid bringing these to the classroom.

Graduation, June 29
Pool Party at Taylor's house. Family and friends welcome. Time TBD.
