200 hr

yoga life skills

& teacher training

Skills and wisdom for creating the best possible experience of life.

This program is designed to give you skills and understanding that you can use now AND that will continue to deepen and unfold over time. The curriculum is resilience-focused. What that means in a practical sense is that the starting place is of acknowledgment of the traumas potentially being held by yourself and your students. This allows for these amazing practices to be applied in a way that is most supportive of the holistic freedom of the practitioner. The intention is not to just perfect poses but to establish a strong foundation of understanding of all 8 limbs of yoga, be able to practice, and transmit that knowledge compassionately and effectively to others. You will learn how to respond to your students' individual needs rather than how to just teach a set sequence (you'll get one of those too :)).

Topics of study include:

  • Asana (posture) breakdown

  • Meditation

  • Pranayama (breathwork)

  • 8 Limbs of Yoga

  • Chakras

  • Anatomy for yoga

  • Sequencing, Voice & Cues & SO MUCH more

You can view the breakdown at our school page on Yoga Alliance. Scroll down for details. 

This course will be 100% ONLINE in response to the current global pandemic.

You will be able to register at the 200hr level with Yoga Alliance at the completion of all program requirements.

Here are some answers to the most frequently asked questions:

CLASSES Start Monday April 13, 2020. 

Live hours will usually be from 12-6EST Monday-Friday. I will make every effort to align the live hours with the needs of the majority of the students. Sessions WILL be recorded and made available to registered students only. If you are seeking a certification then it is important to be present live as much as possible. A detailed schedule will be provided to students after registration.

A digital manual will be provided along with a suggested text and reading list.

If you are seeking a certification you will have required testing and teaching time. If you are simply wanting to deepen your practice, you will not be required to test. Should you change your mind in the future, you will have 18 months to fulfill any missed requirements for certification.


$2500- Payment plans are available $2250 if paid in full.

**THIS COURSE IS BEING OFFERED ON A DONATION BASIS AT THIS TIME. The reason I have chosen to do this is that these skills are particularly helpful for times of stress and trauma like we are collectively experiencing now. I have always valued equitable access. I know that during this time there are a great many people who have found themselves suddenly without a job and therefore less financially stable than may be normally truePlease consider that we are all in this same position and pay what you can. It is my intention to not turn anyone away for inability to pay AND it is important to make some investment, whether energetic or monetary. We will figure it out together.

INTERESTED? Great! Please contact Claire directly to get all your questions answered and see if this program is a good fit for you, now. You can call/text or email.
