Our foundational training is comprised of a small, intimate group of students who will immerse themselves in a deep dive into the study of yoga over the course of nine weekends, spanning approximately 5-6 months.

This is a journey of discovery and insight, each session opening new vistas through which you will see, feel, and intuitively understand how yoga practice can impact our lives.
Our teachers are grounded in a mindful approach, with a focus on integrating the physical, meditative, and philosophical aspects of yoga.

Each session will include practice time as well as contemplative and anatomical study, giving students time to integrate the teachings. You will have experience working with your fellow participants in preparing sequences and practice teaching what you’ve learned. Every student will be assigned a Mentor (Certified Yoga Teacher) to support you during your training.

This immersion is for anyone who wants to deepen their own personal practice and relationship to yoga. Upon completion, participants will receive a 200-hour certificate which qualifies them to become a 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance. Whether you teach or not, you will be grounded in a strong foundation from which to move forward in life.

  • Yoga Anatomy – An in-depth experiential study of the human body.
  • An introduction to the myofascial system and how it relates to yoga practice.

“The Vista Yoga’s Yoga Teacher Training deepened my practice, introduced me to many great people and brought me closer to my teachers and the studio.

I didn’t join with the intention to teach, but with the intention to learn. It was everything I expected. I think I will carry those lessons for the rest of my life.”

– Fred Yelk Woodruff

“I came to yoga at a time in my life when things were changing. Change is stressful. I took YTT at Vista Yoga, mostly for myself. I had no real intention of teaching.

The things I learned, self-care, asanas (yoga poses), pranayama (breath work), yogic philosophy and on and on, have changed me profoundly.

I can look at the world in a way I never could before. I am so grateful that Marti and Marty shared this gift with me. I feel like I am myself now.

I do teach now. I was always a teacher, I just had to become myself to realize it.”

– Valerie Quiñones de Maya
