Our comprehensive program will focus on the essential asana principles of alignment, anatomy, breath, movement and core strength. Our philosophical practice is based on the tenets that a physical practice is just the beginning of the journey; it is a mere conduit to help awaken the mental discipline and practice of quieting the mind and self reflection. At Riverstone you will explore different styles of yoga, incorporating traditions found in the hot and non hot environments allowing you to find your personal path as a teacher.
Upon completion, you will have gathered the tools necessary to practice, teach, and serve the needs of yourself, your students, and the world beyond the mat. We recommend a minimum of 1+yrs of regular yoga practice or fitness regime before entering the training program.
