Ekam Yoga is a Registered Yoga School (RYS) with Yoga Alliance and we offer a 200-hour Teacher Training co-led by Bailey Evans and Jennifer Smith. This course is ashtanga-based with a focus on how to create a safe and sustainable lifelong practice. This course is not just for students with the intention to lead after completion, but also for students who crave more knowledge and a deeper understanding of their practice.

- Ashtanga yoga
We will also cover trauma and prenatal training as well as a deep understanding of breath, bandhas, drishti, gunas, elements, and anatomy.
ETHICS OF TEACHING
This will center on the art of intelligent sequencing with a deep exploration of the asanas, with a focus on understanding how to level up or down students based on where they are which will create a sustainable and intelligent lifelong asana practice.
You will gain an in-depth understanding of both the muscular and skeletal system which will enable you to create safely sequenced classes.
