Held at Island Yoga and led by the one and only Yoga Girl™, this 23-day immersive training is designed to fully prepare you to teach the ancient science of yoga from an authentic place of inspiration, education, creativity, and compassion. Co-training with Rachel is Lara Heimann – a movement specialist, physical therapist, creator of YogaStream, and YogaStream 200 and 500 hour yoga teacher training programs. We believe it is just as much about intelligent alignment as it is about your connection with your own heart – and the voice you allow it to share.

Our RYS-200 Teacher Training offers the highest standards of content and exploration. You will dive deep into yoga philosophy and history, anatomy and physiology, sequencing and speaking, safe assisting and modifying for diverse populations, how to turn your sacred passion into a supportive career, and much more. Upon completion and passing of all examinations, you will receive an Island Yoga 200-hr Yoga Teacher Training Certificate, granting you eligibility to register with globally recognized Yoga Alliance as a RYT-200.
