Yoga Teacher Training

What is Balance Through Movement?

Balance Through Movement draws from traditional Hatha Yoga theory & practice, as well as, modern knowledge of the body and mind to offer a comprehensive scope of yoga. Our teacher training will help you to become your own teacher and self-care expert by cultivating greater awareness and ease in your own body, as well as, to teach intelligent, safe & transformative yoga classes to others.

Is Balance Through Movement YTT right for you?

Upon completion of our 8-month program, you will be eligible for the 200-hour level of registration (RYT) with Yoga Alliance if you chose to become a teacher. The curriculum, group experience, and integrative approach of our training, however, will provide you with more than a certificate to teach - it will provide an opportunity for personal growth and healing.
