Wake Up Yoga’s Comprehensive Foundational Teacher Training Program

Enter the Sacred Fire and Transform Your Life!

Taught by Corina Benner, and assisted by highly esteemed Wake Up Yoga teachers.

If you’re like many curious yoga students, you want to learn more about the path and practice of yoga, including its history and ultimate purpose, while reaping the obvious and measurable results of a consistent, committed practice, and cultivating meaningful friendships with people who share your passion for this path. We will dive into postures, learn how to open the body, and discover and honor your limitations. We will also explore yoga philosophy with in depth study of Ayurveda, the Gita, Yoga Sutra and other topics foundational to this practice. You will also work to find your voice as teacher. We will practice teaching, learn about teaching methodologies and class sequencing, and discuss the skills necessary to work as a yoga teacher. Participants in the full program will complete two 75 minute teaching clinics and one full final class to build skills and confidence for working with students.
