200 HOUR YOGA TEACHER TRAINING
online/virtual training begins January, 2021
Sadhana Yoga Teacher Training is the program developed by Diane. Sadhana means: the intentional acts to create transformation of the inner state of wellbeing- it is what we do, how we do it, and with spiritual intention.
The foundational 200-hr certification is for the curious student and/or the aspiring teacher looking to explore the wisdom of the mind-body connection. It is comprehensive and includes study in the 8 Limbs of Yoga, skilled teaching (poses & sequencing), anatomical alignment and injury prevention, philosophy, meditation and pranayama, inclusive and accessible teaching pedagogy, service, the energetic body, business, and supervised practice teaching.
A 200-hr teacher training will bring about change to both your current practice and your life. It is a journey of self-transformation and deeper connection.
