Community is essential to this journey, so we create a safe space for our trainees to be authentic, and get to know their peers.

Teaching practice begins the first weekend that we meet, to maximize the opportunity to grow during training.
The textbooks we read in the course support our studies in yoga philosophy, anatomy, and the subtle body. Homework and recommended further study are provided at every meeting. Students work together with partners throughout the course to maximize the opportunity for growth in the practice, and make yoga a way of life.

"The Westside Yoga Teacher Training was extremely comprehensive and thorough. I feel totally prepared to share the knowledge and experience I gained through training with others. I also feel comfortable knowing that the teachers at Westside Yoga will make themselves available to me if I have any questions going forward." ~Mallory
"The 200 Hour RYT program at Westside Yoga in Atlanta was life changing! I learned so much about yoga over the four month program, not just the physical poses and alignment, but the fascinating topics of the subtle body and yoga sutras. It gave me the foundation to become stronger in my physical practice, and to explore the other aspects of yoga that really make it a lifestyle. All of the educators were incredibly caring and supportive. Westside Yoga lives up to the yogic values in every way." ~Meg
"My teacher training experience was very informative and a wonderful overall experience. I not only was able to improve my own practice but was able to feel confident and prepared to share yoga with others (both the actual physical practice as well as a lot of the lifestyle behind it). I met some amazing people and the teachers were absolutely great." ~Krista

"Participating in Yoga Teaching Training at Westside Yoga is one of the best decisions I've ever made. The curriculum was well thought out, organized, and so much more in depth than I could've imagined. I learned more than I ever could have expected about myself, the other trainees and teachers (who became family), and the world. I left feeling equipped and confident to go out and teach yoga on and off the mat. I wouldn't trade my experience at Westside Yoga for anything!" ~Jessica
