Please note: 

Participation in this program does not ensure a teaching position at Blue Ridge Yoga. The program is not intended as training for future teachers at Blue Ridge Yoga. Teaching at Blue Ridge Yoga is a separate process. This program is designed to provide teachers with a strong foundation to develop their own unique teaching path and to deepen their personal practice. 

...the variety of teachers who are instructing us and the quality of instruction we receive is unparalleled. From the history of yoga and its philosophy, to anatomy, to sequencing a class, to the community support aspect of yoga, the Blue Ridge Yoga Teacher Training program offers so much for the student. Whether you are looking to deepen your own practice or teach yoga yourself, I highly and lovingly recommend this program!
