YitC - Yoga Teacher Training with Satyam Yoga School
Yoga is about connection; it’s about transformation and, ultimately is a journey of deep discovery into the Self. We have carefully designed our training to guide you on the path to becoming a yoga teacher so that you can awaken to who you are and how you will serve as a teacher.

Our 200-hour Yoga Alliance Registered program is open to anyone who wishes to deepen their understanding of yoga and who wants to learn the skills to teach safe and
inspiring yoga classes with confidence. Your yoga certification will be based in Hatha and Vinyasa styles of yoga; however, we believe in a multi-style yoga approach and
include an emphasis on Yin and Restorative yoga and Ayurveda. Through our training your personal practice will deepen and you will be qualified to register with the Yoga Alliance at the 200-hour level.

Open House - June 20th 11AM - 12:30 PM - Come check out the studio, meet your instructors and Carrie and Kate will be available to answer questions and introduce you
to the program.

Mission
Our mission is to create a supportive, inclusive and non-competitive atmosphere in which you can learn, grow and discover your deepest wisdom. The intention of this
