Soul Aligned: 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training 

Have you always wanted to become a yoga teacher? Maybe you intuitively know it is the path for you. Perhaps you are not ready to teach yoga, but just simply want to dive deeper into this practice? Or maybe you are a yoga teacher already and want to learn more.

Alex is super excited to bring to you her 200 Hour "Soul Aligned" Yoga Teacher Training! 

This Yoga Teacher Training is unique, because it will be split up into seven modules lining up with the seven chakras. The modules will be offered three times over the course of 2021 and ongoing after that. You can do each module on it's own, independently, or all the modules all together.

Modules 1-6 will each be 25 hours.

Module 7 will be 50 hours. 

The modules can be completed in any order, except for the final module which should be completed last. The final module includes practice teaching which should be completed as a cumulative assessment. 

This yoga teacher training is certified by the Yoga Alliance.

In the final module of this 200 Hour Training, you will be exposed to the necessary foundations for student safety, educated on how to adapt for various student types, and learn about teaching methodology and instruction. You will learn about the business of yoga, including marketing, reaching your full potential as a teacher, and building revenue and business streams.
