Big Bear Yoga’s Teacher Training

Big Bear Yoga’s Teacher Training is for you if you want to teach yoga. It is also for you if you have the desire to deepen your yoga practice and knowledge or learn about the yogic lifestyle.

This training will provide you with the basic knowledge to teach Hatha Yoga, and at the completion of the course you will be certified by Big Bear Yoga, a registered Yoga Alliance 200 hour RYT. You can then apply to join Yoga Alliance, yourself as a 200 hour RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher).

Big Bear Yoga’s Teacher Training course is a special offering that includes group classes (online for distance learning and when safety dictates), assistant teaching in a variety of formats, observation, phone and online classes. Self-study, volunteering and homework is a part of the course requirements. The flexibility of the Big Bear Yoga Teacher Training is so students can learn the fundamentals but also dive into the parts of yoga that each student is interested in and drawn to.

Requirements: Computer access with internet, free zoom account, email account, and online video accessibility. An interview with Annalisa ( [email protected] ) or Lisa Ann ( [email protected] / 310-926-5058) to guide our training with you in mind.
