The 100 Yoga Foundations is for those who may or may not want to teach but would like to immerse in a more meaningful practice.
This is also the first module of the 200 Hour Teacher Training the second module can be taken at a later date if the Yoga Foundations speaks to a deeper need to teach. The 2 together will provide you with Yoga Alliance Certification.
The first 100 Hour Yoga Foundations Program is a personal training program. This will give you a clearer understanding of your practice, but will not provide you teaching certification. It will however give you a fundamental base of knowledge to continue on to become a Teacher.

There are 20 non contact hours required which will be dedicated to readings, practice sessions with your peers, and practicum hours.
This is a Teacher Training with a Hatha, Yin, and Breath awareness focus. Training is limited to 12 students in order to ensure that each student is able to have space for inquiry, to practice teach and to have time with the instructors. Classes will be weekly for the Foundations, Friday nights, full Saturdays and full day Sundays and biweekly during the 100 Hour Seat of the Teacher to ensure time to immerse in materials learned. No classes over the Thanksgiving weekend.
Participants will receive a pass to attend classes and will be provided studio space to practice teach with peers and friends at Ocean Breath Yoga. Practicum time will be required of each student before certification.
