Community is essential to this journey, so we create a safe space for our trainees to be authentic, and get to know their peers. Each student has a study partner for the course, and we also work in small groups to gain valuable experience in teaching asana, breath control, meditation and more. You will make lifelong friends, and receive the support you need to feel successful in your journey to becoming a yoga teacher.
We are committed to making sure our graduates are ready to lead, so students have live opportunities to teach throughout the program--the best way to gain valuable experience that prepares them for graduation and beyond. 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.
In addition to meeting hours, trainees are also required to take 1-2 classes per week during the course (included in tuition).
After graduation, students will have the opportunity to apply for apprenticeship opportunities, as well as continuing education opportunities with Westside Yoga.

"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

"I highly recommend Westside Yoga...regardless of whether you want to teach, this will give your life some new perspective, help you shed some layers to further your relationship with yourself, and take your yoga practice to a much deeper level. I also made a ton of awesome new friends that I love dearly." ~Brittany
"Amber and the staff at Westside were quite welcoming of all of our needs and concerns as trainees. I learned so much over the 200 hour program and feel it was a great base for my journey as a yoga teacher. Forever Grateful."
"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
