We are pleased to announce we will be holding our 200 hour yoga teacher training program for 2022, starting this spring!

In order to be more flexible around our full life-styles and concerns with Covid-19, we transformed our training from 8 months of in-person sessions to a hybrid of both in-person and virtual sessions. As we continue to pivot and adapt along with the rest of the world, taking the necessary precautions and considerations to keep our students and teachers safe and healthy throughout our training is our number one priority.

Outlined below is our current schedule for this year’s training program. Our sessions are spread out through a total of 8 months to give the students plenty of space in-between sessions to assimilate the lessons, complete homework, study, and to develop their sadhana (spiritual practice) and hatha exercises.

If you have additional questions, or concerns regarding this year’s training please do not hesitate to contact Shannon at: shannon@goldenlotusyoga.org or (734)309-1103.
