Sunshine Yoga's comprehensive 200-hour YTT program offers an inviting, team-oriented atmosphere in which to inspire your personal yoga practice and foster your unique offering to the world. Whether you are an aspiring yoga teacher ready to share your passion with your community, or seeking to deepen your self-practice, Our "Yogi Training" is a life-changing journey into self-discovery and awakening. 

Who is this YTT program for?

It is for anyone feeling called to go deeper into the self, to help others, or contribute to your community in a positive way. This program is for the dedicated student who intends to honor yogic principles, the guidance of their teachers, and the lineage from which the teachings derive.

What makes this YTT program unique?

Our YTT program is more like a "yogi" training, not one of simply gaining knowledge and skills, rather it's a transformative journey inward toward higher states of consciousness. Through the process of self-development, the "yogi" intuitively knows how to inspire others from their own experience, not from a cognitive place of understanding, but from a place of deep immersion. 

 

Our program takes a 3-fold approach that acknowledges Body, Mind, and Spirit as they are intricately connected, weaving a tapestry of personal development and conscious awakening into a collective experience. 

Prajna blends her Classical Indian training of honoring silence, mantra, and devotion with her playful charm and down-to-earth personality. Her intuitive healing skills provide a safe space for vulnerability and healing. With Prajna's gifts as well as the unique blend of guest teachers, you will experience a well rounded, thorough program, that promotes personal growth, self-love, and transformation.

 

What can I expect from the YTT program?

Through the study of the Self, "yogis" in training go through a very personal process of releasing old patterns and learning to cultivate new ones. Students will heal, cleanse, and renew together as a group and individually as they incorporate yoga into their daily lives.

To embrace the full embodiment of this ancient practice, one that incorporates the whole being, the student must first grasp the basic fundamentals. This is where the program begins, rooted in the first chakra, the Earth element, the origin of yoga and it's core principles. This lays the ground work for a life-long yoga practice and provides a strong foundation for the path of a teacher. We start from the ground up, literally, by grounding through the body, setting of intention, and clearing of obstacles. Then each month builds upon the previous one while focusing on key principles throughout the course.

When you graduate you will be able to:

  • become a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT 200) with Yoga Alliance

  • lead a full length yoga class

  • teach guided meditation 

  • facilitate a specialty workshop

  • offer private yoga sessions

  • provide safe & effective modifications, hands-on assists and verbal cues

  • send your "teacher bio" to studios 

  • know your mission as a teacher

  • discover your special niche that sets you apart in the vast world of yoga.

TESTIMONIALS

"YTT changed my life & Sunshine Yoga became our home away from home. The peaceful, casual, joyous atmosphere of the studio, coupled with Kim’s passion for yoga, made my teacher training experience exceptional. I also really appreciated the traditional approach and time spent on Sanskrit, chanting, history, & ALL eight limbs, instead of only focusing on asana and alignment. I will forever be grateful."

Lauren H.

"I LOVED teacher training! I liked the way we were immersed in the training for the entire weekend; our group became like a little family. Kim exposed us to so many unique experiences, like a Kundalini meditation and a visit to the local ashram. I felt like a got a very well-rounded view of Hatha yoga throughout the training. Each weekend we learned something new and different. We also taught classes throughout the training; it was awesome to watch how much everyone’s confidence grew as the training went on. Thanks for a great YTT!
