Become Certified

I am honored to be your teacher and cannot wait to embark on this journey with you. I fully believe that I learn just as much (if not more!) from my students as they do from me, and so I am honored to be your student as well. This training is a foundation for those interested in teaching vinyasa style yoga, or for those interested in deepening and expanding their own personal practice. The curriculum and practice requirements maintain standards that comply with the Yoga Alliance certified teaching programs.
It is my sincere hope that in this training you will receive a deep understanding of the postures and practices of yoga, but also what it means to truly live your yoga off the mat. I also wish for you to find your own inner voice: a voice that allows you to see, speak, andfeel your truth.
It is often human nature to doubt ourselves.

It can be frightening to move outside of what feels safe or comfortable and towards something unknown. However, it is in these unknown places that we grow into our best selves-the selves that can change others, the selves that can change the world. Over the course of the next nine months,

there may be times when you do doubt yourself. I want you to know that I believe in you fully and that this training is truly for everyone, just like a yoga practice is truly for everyone. I cannot wait to see you grow. Welcome to the Go BEyond Yoga Teacher Training. Namaste.
