200 Hour – YTT

Veda Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training

This course will be offered:

Maui, Hawaii as a Three Week Intensive, Spring 2019

Pittsboro, NC as a Nine Month Program, Spring – Winter 2019

Lead Trainer: Allison Dennis

Trainers: Ginger Clark, Katie Breen, Reda Boustani, Ros Schwartz, Shivani Chudasama



This course is a deep investigation into yoga and the Self. Along the way you will learn the necessary tools for teaching a yoga asana class that is aligned with your personality, intentions and the ancient philosophical and fundamental teachings of yoga. One of the main components to this course is helping you to develop a daily practice of yoga, which for many of us means a home practice. You will be asked to practice yoga (non-obsessively) with body and breath for at least 7 minutes every day. You will also learn yoga philosophy from the traditional texts. The intention is to help you find YOUR yoga so that you can access it easily and teach it truthfully.

Potential lodging in Carrboro and Chapel Hill for those traveling to be with us.
