Yoga Teacher Training & Certification

What makes us unique?

We check all the boxes. Ageless Arts Yoga is a Yoga Alliance (Y/A) Registered School. Our 200 hour Registered Yoga Teacher Training (RYT-200) not only meets but exceeds the Y/A guidelines.

It is our mission to make yoga accessible to everybody and every body.

  • Have you ever wondered why you struggle your way into an Asana (pose), while another person transitions with ease?
  • Have you wondered why another student holds an Asana in such an awkward, uncomfortable way rather than relaxing or stretching into it like you do?
  • Are you confused about how some people can close their eyes and sit to meditate when your monkey mind is running wild, and your body can’t find stillness?

Ageless Arts Yoga teacher training helps you to fully understand your body, as well as the challenges and eases that other bodies may face.

To learn more about what the RYT 200 entails, you can visit the Yoga Alliance website. To learn more about why Ageless Arts Yoga is unique, send us an email at info@agelessartsyoga.com

At Ageless Arts, YTT 200 course students will study a blend of integrated yoga techniques including traditional Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Flow, Kripalu, Restorative Yoga and more. This training will weave together the physical, mental, emotional, philosophical and energetic aspects of yoga while addressing a variety of topics from classical yoga:

  • Learning about the 8 limbs of yoga
  • Breaking down  32 asanas (postures)
  • Practicing meditation and pranayama (breathing techniques)
  • Experiential anatomy in relation to yoga
  • Studying ancient Sanskrit (the language of yoga)
  • Understanding yogic philosophy and ethics

In addition, students also have the opportunity to practice teaching on each other as well as on their own. They learn to create a safe yoga practice, to present themselves in the classroom, and conduct an inspirational yoga class. Most importantly, they can explore and deepen their own personal experience with yoga—even if they have no intention of teaching later.

This program is accessible to everyone over 16 years of age. No matter what your challenges (age, limited mobility, weight), you are welcome to attend. We believe that yoga is for everybody—and every body.

Programs are run three times a year, in a one-month intensive (40 hours per week), a 2×12 format (new for us!) and weekly over the school year.
