2018 Teacher Training Program

Are you yearning to deepen your practice or dive deep into your yogic studies? Are you simply not sure if you want to teach? Or, do you know you are ready to step into becoming a yoga teacher?

The e3 vinyasa 200-hour teacher training program serves as a foundational learning and experiential laboratory over the course of one calendar year. You will learn foundational, applicable knowledge through experiential learning and self-study (svadyaya), coupled with extensive practice teaching. You will graduate from this training program with the skills and tools to confidently teach in a group class, corporate or private session... or know your overall practice on a whole new level then before you started the training program.

This is a training program that will teach you sequence formatting and will give you a solid blueprint to teach from using the built in e3 cues pertaining to embodiment, energetics and empowerment.
