Continuing Education

Yoga Teacher Training

Training as a yoga teacher is a lifelong practice. While these workshops are part of our advanced studies yoga teacher training, they are open to everyone. Each offers Yoga Alliance continuing education credits, aka YACEPs. Our co-owner/director of our teacher trainings is Sage Rountree, author of The Professional Yoga Teacher’s Handbook.

Continuing Education in Person

We are delighted to be back in live in-person trainings! Read all about our upcoming trainings and register here. These are scheduled into 2023, so be sure to use the “view all” link by the date filter to see them. For each of these, we offer our need-blind reparatory and gratitude discount to encourage BIPOC and Indian/Indian American teachers to join and to accelerate a world in which yoga teachers represent a broad diversity of population and experience. If you self-identify as a member of these groups, please write us for a discount code to use at registration.

These trainings are convenient not only to people in our geographical area (Carrboro, Chapel Hill, Durham, Greensboro, Raleigh, Winston-Salem) but also to anyone willing to travel for high-quality continuing education classes geared to yoga and movement teachers of all backgrounds. To make travel easy, we meet all day on Saturdays and half days on Sundays, with extensive pre- and post-meeting assignments for students to complete and share for feedback.
