200 Hour Teacher Training

The Yoga Viva is excited to announce a very special summer! We have our usual 12 week summer immersion with an option to participate in our overlapping HERBALISM FOR YOGA TEACHERS COURSE. This immersive community experience, located in the heart of Tampa's Seminole Heights Historic District, is all about embodiment, expansion, and coming home to ourselves and our potential. 

This yoga alliance certified accessible and in depth course in yoga is a premier and life changing experience in teaching and practicing yoga. Covering different healing modalities and yoga styles, students in The Yoga Viva Teacher Training will not only develop their tool belt of yoga practices that aid them in navigating the physical and spiritual journey, but will be able to confidently guide others in the process as well. If you have ever felt that there was some other way of seeing the world or wondered how you could possibly be of service, this training is for you. Gain the confidence, knowledge, and experience to share the vast and ancient practices of yoga with yourself and others. 

Every weekend consists of an opening circle where we learn to hold space for ourselves and our classmates, followed by unique workshops on a variety of topics. Regular breaks are built into each session and the weekend will explore a different theme of self-care and personal practice. Together, we build depth of relationships with ourselves, our practice, and one another. Weekends will finish with an overview of homework assignments, what we learned, and a closing circle emphasizing community building.
