What sets us apart
United Yoga Teacher training was founded to bridge the gap between the art and science of the yoga experience. We created a training rooted in the essence of healthy mindful movement. Our unique teaching style integrates finding and strengthening your voice by drawing from your intuition, owning your authentic life story, as well as continued self discovery. We have connected this philosophy with an emphasis on anatomy and the strategies to develop intelligent movement patterns in sustaining a lifelong practice. This training is designed to educate, encourage and empower the heart, mind and body.
What you will experience
Each individual will complete this program with an enriched understanding and appreciation for this ancient practice, its history and philosophy, a deeper awareness and appreciation to the complexity of human movement and have advanced knowledge to correct alignment and minimize the risk of overuse injury.
UY teacher training is kept to an intimate group, which grants each person the opportunity to one on one and personalized training and guidance. We guarantee a safe space with your committed three lead teachers allowing you to build connection and fostering a trusting environment along with fellow trainees to build lasting relationships.
Together, we have a wealth of knowledge, education and experience in yoga and multiple areas of wellness and are dedicated to lifelong learning, personal growth and pursuit of excellence. Each of us is passionate and committed to leaving a legacy and believe that it begins with you and the transformation you will experience through our training. Meet your lead trainers, here!
