Grow Your Practice
BECOME A CERTIFIED YOGA TEACHER
Launch your yoga teaching professional career
Yoga is a growing industry! In fact it is huge! In a 2016, Yoga Journal study it was reported that Americans spend about $16.8 billion on yoga and related services. As our population drives toward healthier living there is a thriving opportunity for meaningful work. We also recognize that to be a successful yoga teacher requires entrepreneurial skills. Therefore our teacher training also teaches how to build your teaching career and platform so that you can easily share what you love.
Grow your own practice
There is no better way to learn about the practice you love than through a yoga teacher training. It’s the best way to learn about healthy alignment in the poses for your body. You’ll also learn how yoga principles can support your life off the mat. Many individuals take a teacher training without intention to ever teach.
Connect with your confident, authentic self
There is a distinction between being a good yoga technician and being a great yoga teacher. A great yoga teacher is able to show up fully present, aware, and ready for their students every time they teach. In our 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training we help you learn the skills to teach a fluidly conducted, well sequenced vinyasa class. In addition, we will unearth your blocks for finding your TRUE teacher within, help you find your voice, and help you cultivate a more intimate presence with those you interact with or teach.
“Thank you so much for an absolutely amazing teacher training. It was such an incredible experience!”

OPPORTUNITY FOR TWO
CERTIFICATIONS AT ONCE
Nothing will shape your teaching like deeply understanding yourself
and what drives human behavior.
We know this. This is why we offer all our HYL yoga teacher trainees a special opportunity to enroll in the HYL Coach Training Virtual Course for a deeply discounted price. In the training you will learn coaching techniques, the cornerstone method of our coach training the Emotional Responsibility Method™, and practice what you are learning in peer coaching.
Also as the yoga industry evolves and changes, being able to offer your students and clients services outside of simply teaching yoga on the mat differentiates you in the market. It provides you the opportunity to increase your revenue and is a super complement to teaching. By being a HYL coach you can better structure your relationships with your students, establish professional boundaries as you help them live their best life.

THIS UNIQUE COMBINATION training
“Yoga training with HYL has been a fantastic experience. I had my doubts entering the training. Am I good enough at yoga?… I feared that because I don’t have an amazing level of flexibility that I would be the slowest learner in the training. I’ve improved so much…that I can truly say I’m not the same person I was at the start of the program. I’m fitter, stronger and more confident. The demands of the program have brought out the best in me and, if I may say, my classmates. I felt early on that I could teach a great class and that feeling grew with every weekend. The instructors have great knowledge, great energy and never judge. HYL teachers are fair, insightful and worked with us to confront problems in both our physical practice and teaching. They were always cheerful, kind and welcoming. I feel very fortunate to now work with them.”
