Yoga Farm offer yoga students and educators this practical, accessible, and joyful Yoga Teacher Training and Immersion twice each year, spring, and fall.
Our teachers explain the Program:
If you have felt the touch of yoga and are ready to dive deeply into the practices, then learn how to give back, our yoga teacher training and immersion may be a match for you.
REGISTRATION OPEN for our fall, September - December 2019 Training! (seven full weekends, early-bird discounts active now)
We also offer the Heartful Warrior Meditation and Mindfulness 200 hour Teacher Training beginning in May
This 200 hour yoga teacher certification training encompasses two simultaneous journeys:
Your inner, personal journey – you merge with your yoga, becoming grounded and centered and present
Your outer journey – you learn to teach, allowing your gifts to be shared with the world
Our Yoga Farm teachers bring yoga, meditation and mindfulness to a large variety of settings: K-12 schools, businesses, festivals, yoga studios, living rooms, private sessions and more.
You will choose a 'concentration' for the second half of the training:
'Radiant Schools' - yoga and mindfulness for educators and youth in classroom settings
'Adult Group Classes' - creative class structuring and delivery in studios, gyms, retirement homes, living rooms etc
Who is this for?
This training is not designed specifically for an "advanced" yoga student—rather it is "for regular people, by regular people."
We have found a ready market and rewarding service in teaching yoga that just about anyone can do and are eager to share this with you.
This is yoga for every body. This is yoga for life, for YOUR life. We teach foundational practices and observances to assist you in standing strong and bright when you walk off the mat into work, relationships, into life.
Our training program is for:
Everyone who wishes to carry the teachings of yoga to others, in any setting
Those relatively new to yoga and enthusiastic about taking their practice to the next level
Students who are ready to adapt yoga to new audiences
Educators who are learning about yoga and mindfulness for the classroom
Students who are ready to deepen into their own practice
Those ready for a comprehensive training in all areas of yoga
You, if you, like us, value connection, healing and education

I’m out of town - is there housing available?
Our retreat center with cabins and dorms is in the planning phase. In the interim, we have 2 private bedrooms with a shared bathroom available for the training weekends. There are other local airbnb’s available that are very affordable - don’t let the travel sway you if you feel a pull to our program.
We have two rooms are in upstairs of the farmhouse, and are comfortable, warm, quiet rooms.
If you are traveling in for this yoga teacher training, you are eligible for a room.
These rooms are available for $50 per night, for both nights of the training weekend, plus an additional $20 for the weekend for a cleaning fee. All 7 weekends must be booked for this to be available to you. The total for all 7 weekends, 14 nights, is $840.
Optionally, you can assist us on the weekend with food preparation and cleanup of the shared kitchen space after our sessions each day and we’ll gladly waive the $20 cleaning fee, with our thanks. The total then for 14 nights is $700.
Please register ASAP if you’d like this option as there are only 2 rooms available. Let us know you would like this and we’ll get right back to you.
Update: Only one room left for spring training as of 12/5/18
"It's absolutely wonderful! I have grown both professionally and personally from this journey. My guides and teachers, Jeannie, Daniela, and Christopher have shown me a path I only dreamed existed. They encouraged me to step into the realm of becoming a Mindful Warrior Yoga Teacher.
This program made me dig deeper into my yoga and meditation practice and myself. The results are absolutely amazing. My heart is warm and I am absolutely grateful for the opportunity to go through this beautiful journey. Purely transformational."

The lessons flow seamlessly from instructor to instructor and topic to topic. This flow comes from their extensive knowledge, their own personal experience, and their immense love for and dedication to yoga/meditation and their students.
