Vitality's 200hour Teacher Training is a comprehensive training that will deepen your practice, expand your awareness and create a lot of freedom in your mind and body!
The Fall/Winter training is from September-February, 2 weekends per month. It's an easy schedule to manage as we meet every other weekend, 11:30-4pm Saturdays+Sundays.
The format of this training works physically, learning yoga sequences and poses, energetically, through the map of the chakras, and spiritually as we dive into the ancient yogic texts of the Bhagadvad Gita and the Yoga Sutras. We will explore how these profound teachings relate to our current lives.
We will follow the map of the Chakras, known as our energy centers. Throughout the training, we explore these energy centers emotionally and physically through meditations, as well as the physical practice that relates to each chakra. Often times we find imbalances in our chakras that can be brought back into balance by different exercises and journaling prompts.
The anatomy will be taught in order of the chakras, creating a cohesive understanding each week, learning anatomy in our physical practice, studying it in a group and creating illustrations. These different ways of learning adhere to many different learning styles.
From the very first week, you will learn how to use your voice to practice teaching simple sun salutations. Each week you will continue learning to teach by creating sequences that use a tried and true format that designs a well-balanced class that can be suitable to all levels. You will finish the training as a confident teacher ready to share this practice with others and be certified with the Yoga Alliance.
Whether or not you want to become a yoga teacher, this training will be a life changer as you will expand your self-knowledge and awareness, which will make you calm and grounded. You'll get in great shape and become more flexible and stronger in both your body and mind. One of the aspects of this training is the focus on your life's purpose, known in the Bhagavad Gita as 'dharma', which will move you into a confident, courageous mindset to step into an inspiring and fulfilling life.

Feedback from past trainees:
“My yoga teacher training at vitality has taught me so much about life and who I am. Not only has it taught me the proper way into poses but it has allowed me to fully understand each pose and how to breathe into them. This experience has given me the discipline that I needed in my life in order to feel more balanced. My mindset has shifted in a way that I am more conscious about everything I say and or do on a daily basis. The way I interact with others is on a deeper level than ever before. My yoga teacher training taught me patience, in general, but really with myself. I stopped being so hard on myself about things in life. I no longer allow fear to stop me from doing anything I want to do and I no longer make excuses. Vitality alone has made me not feel alone. I feel like I’m part of an incredible community, a family, that when I’m having a bad day, I want to be here because I instantly feel less stressed when I walk in the front door. I feel like I can connect with others here and allow myself to be myself without feeling judged. I will forever be grateful for my yoga teacher training here and I will carry it all with me for the rest of my life. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!” -DM
“I started this program to become stronger in my body, mind and soul, and it has done just that and more than I could’ve imagined. My trust in others and a sense of community and camaraderie has deepened. My knowledge and topics that I am passionate about has exponentially grown. My soul has faced so much fear that I knew I desperately had to take this training. This journey has been a tool for just that, clearing space for acceptance and trust in the unknown, and Faith in myself. My body has been challenged, it became stronger and capable of endurance that I didn’t think was possible. I am so proud of myself for completing this training, and happy to have had this experience to carry with me as a foundation for the rest of my life!”- SM
