Embrace Your Path: Lifestyle Program & Teacher Certification

Take your yoga off the mat and into your life for more balance and clarity in everything from relationships and parenting to your home and garden. This is your guide to a living an authentic lifestyle despite everyday stress. 


Shanti Heart Teacher Training is a Yoga Alliance  200 Hr certified course that brings together key elements for your certification as well as a path to a lifestyle that supports your as you support your community.


It is good to know that Yoga is not just about the physical postures. As a philosophy and a practice, it deals with all aspects of the human experience. When viewed from this larger perspective, we can begin to see Yoga as a lifestyle choice. The lessons that we learn in pose practice bring about a sense of deeper insight and awareness that permeates into daily living, and helps us create a sense of connection to something larger than ourselves. 

Teacher Training Modules

Our Teacher Training is modeled on the Eight Limbs of Yoga.  As we learn each limb, we learn to integrate mind, body and spirit into our wholeness and union.
