Our Vinyasa Yoga School is one of the nation's few yoga schools that offer a program lead by some of the worlds leading yoga teachers. Participants have the opportunity to directly study with Ana Forrest, Bryan Kest, Donna Farhi and many other widely respected teachers and leaders in the field of yoga. Our training programs are carefully designed for serious students and lead to national Yoga Alliance certification at the 200 hour level. The 200 Hours are organized in 4 individual modules which can be completed in a short track within 4-6 months, or stretched out over a two year period. Training intensive modules are offered both locally in Washington DC on an ongoing basis, as well as international retreat venues in India, Hawaii and Costa Rica.

Our Teacher Training program is a unique approach and intentionally designed to allow more time to give participants the opportunity to apply and practice the material covered as well as permitting time to integrate the information in a responsible way.
