Hatha Yoga Teacher Training

January 20, 2023-June 18, 2023

What Makes this Training Different?

The goal of Lighthouse’s Hatha Yoga Teacher Trainings is to train quality teachers with an understanding of yoga philosophy, anatomy and asana.

Our small group focus allows us to set rigorous standards, which include plenty of time for practice teaching.

Lighthouse teachers are among the most capable in the region, and we are committed to upholding this standard.

Lighthouse has a commitment to social and racial justice and incorporates those values into our teacher trainings.

Lighthouse Yoga Center’s Hatha Yoga Teacher Training focuses on:

  • Constructing and deconstructing fundamental asanas
  • Understanding alignment in asana
  • Physical anatomy
  • Pranayama, meditation, and the energetic body
  • Intelligent sequencing and creative class planning
  • Yoga philosophy and history
  • Practice teaching

Our next RYT-200 Hatha Teacher Training starts in January 2023. The training will be led by Tara Lemerise, who will be assisted by Machelle Lee and Rebecca Henry. The training meets over 6 months online and in-person at our Kennedy Street address.  Follow the link below below for our syllabus, schedule and more!

Continuing Education

At Lighthouse, we are committed to the idea that you are never finished being a student of Yoga.  With so many different areas to explore, from history, philosophy, texts, religion and spirituality, to anatomy, physiology, body acceptance and social justice, we are continuously adding workshops and workshop series for you, our students and teachers. Many of our teachers and guest teachers are able to offer continuing education credits through Yoga Alliance (YACEP) – check back here and our workshop page (and follow us on social media) for links to trainings that offer CEUs!

Some of our students’ deepest experiences of yoga happen when we can give them the opportunity to stop working to control their body and mind. Instead, we can help them rest with support, awareness, and intention. This training is ideal for: new and experienced yoga teachers who want to grow teaching skills anyone currently enrolled in an immersion or yoga teaching training program anyone interested in deepening their understanding and experience of Restorative Yoga.
