Has your love for yoga lit a spark within you? Do you feel called to share it with others? Are you ready to deepen your knowledge of this ancient practice and weave yogic philosophies into your every breath, on and off the mat? If so, the Longwave Yoga Teacher Training is the program for you!
We’re dedicated to supporting our yogis throughout their authentic, life-long journey of practicing and sharing yoga with others. Our intention is to teach yogic traditions with a contemporary emphasis on living a present, balanced and self-actualized life. How do we do this? By helping our aspiring yoga teachers establish a strong foundation of knowledge and guiding them to find their own unique expression as an instructor. Longwave Yoga Teacher Training celebrates and encourages the imagination and boundless creativity of our trainees. To us, teaching yoga is an art, and a science.
This unique program is a 200-hour comprehensive teacher training recognized by Yoga Alliance, the standard-setting organization for yoga teachers and studios internationally. We are inspired to educate teachers through genuine experience and honest guidance, steeped in inquiry, observation, and a true integration of experiential learning. Longwave’s teacher training will prepare you to teach full spectrum Vinyasa flow classes that focus on creativity and mindfulness. After receiving the certification, you will be qualified to register with the nationally accredited Yoga Alliance.
The three-month format will meet for six (6) extended weekends over the course of 3 months (two Friday evening through Sunday afternoon sessions per month). This training is perfect for those who have obligations during the week. The three-month format is geared towards yogis who would like to take more time to assimilate the covered material and dive deeply into the suggested texts in order to fully comprehend the material and to weave the experiences into their daily lives!
Our three-week immersion will meet daily over the course of three, consecutive weeks (Monday-Saturday). This option is designed for those who have the time and space to dedicate to a full three weeks of study. Additionally, this option is a great choice for out-of-town students who want to retreat and/or minimize commute time. The ideal candidate for the immersion is one who desires to be fully committed to the study of yoga without distractions from outside obligations.
