200RYT Vinyasa Teacher Training

Our 200hr Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) Foundational Vinyasa Teacher Training & In-Depth Study emphasizes a dedicated, regular practice of asanapranayamameditation, and exploration of theory. The Foundational 200hr course is open to all level of students, as it will lay the foundation upon which to teach — from a place of experiential knowledge.

What to expect in this online interactive course with Sara Turk.

Throughout the training & in-depth study, all lectures will include elements of theoretical and practical application of teaching yoga. While the fundamentals of teaching can be learned through education, there is an art to the presentation of a class that comes from within the individual, rooted in authenticity. A dedicated practice of yoga is critical to the continuing self-education of a teacher, yet one must also practice the art of teaching in order to develop the skills necessary to be a successful conveyer of yogic knowledge. This training will provide a solid foundation, as well as ample opportunity to practice your teaching skills before embarking in the 'real world’ on your own. 

By utilizing the Ashtanga Primary Series as a practice and teaching template, you will understand the fundamentals of a vinyasa-style practice. Upon completion of all online sections AND in-person intensives, you will be able to teach & assist vinyasa styles of yoga. Those who undertake deeper study of the ASHTANGA-VINYASA system itself will be able to teach Ashtanga with confidence.

200hr Foundational Teacher Training/In-Depth Study includes (but not limited to):

  • Fundamentals of Teaching (Sequencing, Adjustments, Presentation, etc)

"Best yoga in all of Houston! As a graduate of the 200hr Teacher Training Course, I can attest to the level of detail and care that the Owner, Sara Turk, puts into her training of aspiring yoga instructors. All those who graduate from this program have undergone a rigorous schedule of theoretical and hands-on-training. Also, I noticed a stark improvement in my own personal practice as a result of completing this program. Highly recommended for all those looking to deepen their own practice!"
