500Hr yoga Teacher Trainings


Our advanced yoga teacher trainings are for those teachers interested in leading classes based on functional wellness in mind and body. We place a strong emphasis on modern day scientific findings and applications with mindfulness, anatomy, and bio individuality. You will learn to apply the principles of Embodied Posture Methodology as outlined in Stacy's new book, Embodied Posture, to your practice and teaching. Each day you will take a class aimed at refining your personal physical practice and deepening your understanding of posture variation. Mindfulness meditation, breath practice, self-inquiry, and journaling will be included each day. Each module contains a specific anatomical focus in which we will study structure, function and applications in sequencing. Common injuries and their implications with yoga will be included.

Contemplating the 8 Limbs of yoga: Ancient Wisdom viewed through a Contemporary Lens

Bali, Indonesia

June 8 Check-in / June 18 check-out

Bali is full of amazing culture and full of exciting places to explore. We will have extra time throughout training to take short excursions to waterfalls, snorkeling, market shopping, volcano hiking or whatever you choose. The people of Bali are extremely warm and welcoming to everyone.

Imagine waking up to the sounds of the local temple prayers and ocean waves rolling onto the beach just a few hundred feet away. We will spend time each morning soaking up the essence of Bali with a fresh cup of tea or coffee. Quiet time with meditation that leads us all into a strong asana yoga practice. The rest of the day will be filled with Asana study, practice teaching and discussion.
