  • Deepen Your Own Practice

In a teacher training, you'll learn more than just how to teach: so much more about yoga including the history and philosophy of the practice, the ancient yogic texts, and detailed anatomy of the asanas.


  • Know Your Roots

You'll learn where yoga comes from, how it has evolved over time, and how the ancient teachings are still applicable to our modern lives.


  • Learn the WHY of the HOW

If you've ever wondered WHY you're instructed to place your left foot here, and your right hand there, now is your chance to learn! Detailed anatomy is part of every teacher training so you'll have a thorough understanding of how the body moves in asana and how to keep your students safe and prevent injury.


  • Inspire Others

If you've ever left a yoga class feeling rejuvenated, you know how beneficial the practice is! Now is your chance to join the ranks of teachers bringing people closer to balance, inner peace, and personal strength.


  • Hold A Reputable Certification

The Yoga Alliance is the industry standard with regard to assuring teachers receive the best possible training in order to uphold the profession and keep their students safe and successful during practice. 


  • Assistance With Job Placement 

Part of the teacher training curricula includes resume writing, designing business cards, and finding your unique niche and teaching style. We want to make sure you have the tools to become a successful teacher! You also become part of our Alumni Network and have ongoing opportunities to promote your own business & teach classes at Luminaire!

"It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge." -Albert Einstein

One of the most important parts of teacher training is learning how to serve your students fully. Use of language and metaphor, modified poses and props, and how to assess an individual student's needs are equally as important as how to sequence the poses.

"I love how Caitlin
brought a bunch of women together from different backgrounds and made us all feel like sisters. I
especially love how much I’ve changed in a good way because of this program."

Whitney W.

"I love that this course surprised me. We covered material that was totally new to me
and surprisingly impactful and meaningful to my everyday life. I wasn’t expecting to like or get so
much out of the humanities section, but think that’s one of my biggest areas of learning. Every day I
felt my skills, knowledge, and confidence growing and my inspiration and anticipation was, too.

Suzanne B.

"The way Caitlin just opened her home and heart to us! She made it such a fun and personal experience that has so many memories with inside jokes. It was such a safe space and Caitlin made it easy for all of us to be open and honest about everything, and it was amazing! I’m going to miss it!!

Rebecca K.
