5 resources for finding the perfect yoga teacher training program for you
1. Yoga Alliance
First, make sure that the school or teacher is recognized by Yoga Alliance. While not all of us necessarily feel they are any kind of real authority, they certainly have established themselves as a resource that many people trust and have created guidelines for yoga teacher training that most, if not all, schools abide by when creating a 200 or 500 hour program. It makes sense to make sure that the school you wish to do your training at is recognized by Yoga Alliance
2 & 3. Yoga School Directory & Seattle Yoga News
You can check out a list of yoga training sites by going either to the Yoga School Directory or, many cities have blogs that function as communal resources for the yoga community in that area. For example, Seattle Yoga News lists events, retreats and teacher trainings from all over the Seattle area.

4. Stone Yoga School
If money and time is not an issue, check out these incredible international teacher training programs, where you get to work with master teachers in exotic locations. It’s not cheap, but if you can afford it, it’s potentially a fantastic way to not only learn how to teach from a phenomenal teacher, but you get to spend some weeks or months getting the experience of a lifetime, abroad. Here are two awesome programs to consider. (There also are some interesting programs in India, as well, if you’re willing to do the research).

A New Start in March!
With the new year coming many of us want to start fresh with a sense of direction and purpose, look for ways to be challenged and grow in our lives and our practice. Our 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training beginning in March is an excellent way to grow deeply into your practice in a structured and safe environment.
Designed for those with Busy Lives
Our curriculum is based around Saturdays and alternate Sundays to allow for those with families and busy professional to come and deepen in this wonderful practice. We are nestled near the border of Shoreline and Edmonds. From North Seattle, where many of our teachers and students migrate from, it’s often only a 10 to 20 minute drive (a surprise to many students when they first check us out!), especially on the weekend without commuter traffic. This year, we’ve deliberately extended our Yoga Teacher Training another month so that your Saturday evenings are left to you and your plans, rather than trying to cram every little hour into just a 3 month intensive.
Students will receive plenty of individual attention with regular scheduled private meetings and check-ins. We’re not a one size fits all studio and we’ll make sure you grow in the ways you need and want and receive help in the things that you find most challenging.
Alison, Dylan and Rob will guide you through 4 months of a carefully scaffolded curriculum. All of the teachers have been teaching for over 10 years and bring joy, passion and dedication to the craft.
