200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training

I am so grateful for the gift of yoga. This practice has given me a precious tool for growth in my spiritual journey. For me, yoga has been the first place where I have understood the fullness of the wonderful way God created us — how our minds, our hearts, and our bodies are meant to function as one. This 200 YTT is one way I can give back what God has given to me. I love teaching teachers. It is one of the highlights of my yoga journey. To see others find a deeper knowledge of themselves, an understanding of what it means to “be” in God’s presence, and a path for developing their own gifts is tremendously satisfying. Whether you choose to be a teacher or simply deepen your knowledge of the practices of yoga as a tool for your own growth, you will find so much more than just learning poses. I would love to have you along with me on this journey.

The next 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training will begin in August.

What Others Are Saying:

"Going through YTT with Yoga Inspired not only prepared me to teach, it was a deep journey towards becoming who I want to be.  — Jeanetta

“"I am just amazed at the spiritual/physical/mental growth of the past ten months. It's amazing and awesome to look back and see the Lord's hand in it all. I learned so much!"  — Suzanne

"Thank you for all you have poured into me through this training. When we started this process my only expectation was to learn how to teach yoga, but this journey has been so much more than that. I've learned so much about yoga, the body, teaching, our Lord and myself. And I've learned how to quiet my spirit before the Lord which has been incredible." — Jenna

Yoga Inspired’s 200-hour teacher training prepares its trainees to begin teaching the principles and techniques of yoga safely and competently. —Anna

At Yoga Inspired 200-Hour Christ-Centered Teacher Training Program, we learn to honor our bodies as we understand over 50 yoga asanas and the biomechanics of creating them with our bones, joints, and muscles. We learn to honor our minds as we understand ways of building classes, modifying poses, and relating to potential students. We learn to honor our spirits as we study breathing techniques, meditation, and yoga philosophy. We do all of this knowing that we live and move and breathe in God's presence, that our highest goal is to honor Him, that "union" (or yoga) is a powerful tool for entering into that oneness with our Creator.
