“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you’ve imagined. As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler.”

—Henry David Thoreau

Teaching yoga requires the assimilation and embodiment of the teachings, presented in your own voice and in your own way. As we grow as teachers, we add our own voice to the lineage of teachers. This is how the yoga tradition stays alive and evolves.

Personal interview and completion of the Rising Lotus INC YTT application is required to complete enrollment.
