- the 200 hr teacher training -

While there is much to learn and study to become a yoga teacher, we believe that if it is not brought into our experience, it will fade into shadow. The program is physically, mentally and spiritually challenging, but because we cannot teach where we have not been, this work is necessary to develop ourselves into effective, heartfelt teachers. Our program is based in practical, hands on, visual and interactive workshops. Teaching yoga is visceral, exciting and energetic, - full of caring, sweat, compassion, courage, vulnerability and love. We aim to teach you how to deeply connect with your students and by doing so, your knowledge, skills, study, hard work and self-practice will shine through. Your ability to reach every student where they stand today will facilitate their growth, healing and well-being and is one of the most rewarding and transformative things a person can do in their life. The Elements Teacher Training will provide you with tools to will peel away the layers you no longer need, and set you on a new path of power, discovery and meaning. You will leave with new goals, ideals and skills and understanding some of the world’s greatest wisdom teachings. You will discover more about yourself than you imagined possible, let go of limitations and reveal your own inner truth. We will take you through the Yax Yoga Concepts Method and teach you three motivating general level multi style classes.

The Yax Yoga Concepts Method incorporates many styles of yoga into one experience, creating a sustainable system of transformation.  At The Elements our aim is to break barriers between yoga systems and unite them.

The 200-hour Teacher Training program explores the process and science of yoga. It is designed to transform passionate students into powerful teachers. It has two main intentions. The first is to teach the core principles of yoga and how to implement them into daily life, positively shifting the way we live and how we perceive our world. The second is to develop within each student the key attributes of a teacher. We’ve designed specific training drills that dramatically accelerate that learning process. Upon graduation, you’ll be able to confidently lead group classes through three systems, Nyata (Stability-Earth), Vinyasa (Flow-Water), Core Stabilization (Fire)
