200 Hour 
Teacher Training

Thank you for your interest in Still Water Yoga Lake Tahoe’s 200 Hour  Teacher Training! 

This Vinyasa style teacher training is registered with Yoga Alliance, and you will be eligible to receive your RYT 200 credential after the completion of this course. Often people attend 200 hour teacher trainings to simply deepen their own practice, and we highly encourage people on this path. Additionally, individuals who envision themselves teaching yoga as a part of their future will be taught the necessary standards required by Yoga Alliance to become a certified yoga teacher.
Our 200 hour teacher training aims to give you the knowledge and skills to deepen your personal practice, and also be able to share your gifts with others through teaching yoga. At the end of this training, our goal is that you are able to teach asanas with safe and proper alignment, be familiar with the philosophy and history of yoga, learn the anatomy that is an integral part of a yoga practice, be able to sequence and manage a class, find your own teaching style, and apply yoga principles into every day life.

We believe that yoga is a path that allows us to connect the mind, body, and soul, and is a tool that helps us navigate through this crazy thing called “life”. We are merely your guide on your yoga journey, and we hope that throughout this training you explore and discover how yoga works in your life.

We hope to see you in our next training!
