Yoga Teacher Training

March 3rd – June 16th, 2018

200-hour Yoga Teacher Training

Join us for this in-depth Yoga Teacher Training Immersion and Teacher Certification at RBY, led by Alison Solam, Dylan Noebels and Rob Kovacevic, in the spring of 2017. We will help bring out and develop the natural teacher in you. This is a 200-hour, Yoga Alliance-approved training that will prepare you to teach with confidence. We encourage you to talk to us about your interest in the training. Many take the course with no intention of becoming a teacher, but only as a skilful way of deepening into their own practice. Some take the training to supplement their work in the helping professions such as nursing, mental health or as a school teacher. You don’t need to be an expert in yoga or incredibly flexible in order to get the most from your time with us. The purpose of the training is to take you to your next level in the practice and give you the tools to keep developing for the years and decades to come! We’re only 20 minutes from North Seattle and designed around those with families and busy lives. Email us at or call us at 360 632 9208

You are guaranteed to get a lot of personal attention in our yoga teacher training, which includes one-on-one sessions with a lead trainer and an apprenticeship with a master teacher. The Richmond Beach Yoga teacher training program is intellectually challenging and physically inspiring, and fosters creative and critical thinking about yoga.

From RBY TT Graduate Sharon J:

I want to let both of you know how much I am enjoying the TT course.  Both of you are excellent teachers with a great grasp of the material and an inclusive way of presenting it.  

I have a long history of medical training, physical therapy for injury and yoga classes with wonderful teachers.  Since I was coming with so many expectations, I was prepared to discover some areas of disagreement or disappointment.  I have not had a single issue with anything that has been presented.  I think you guys are right on from my perspective, and I could not be more pleased with the course.

Our comprehensive program includes study and practice

Including Asana (postures); pranayama (breathwork), anatomy for yoga, history of yoga, yoga philosophy, meditation and how to teach it, teaching methodology, how to create a yoga career, and more, including how to teach pregnant women. We will have dynamic guest speakers; ample time for you to practice teach with your peers; and stimulating reading materials, homework, and projects.

Are you smart, down-to-earth, and an independent thinker? Are you looking for a yoga teacher training that will thrill you intellectually? Our program appeals to people who are interested in deepening their own practice and learning to guide their students with integrity. Our program brings out the natural teacher in you. The natural teacher interacts with students in an authentic way, and works with, not against, the body’s structure– instead of following an unrealistic or unhealthy image of the pose.  Our trainees want to know the “why” behind what they teach.

We all long for meaningful waysto be of service to others. Teaching yoga can fulfill this desire. It can be a full-time career or a passion that you pursue while doing other work. Current RBY Teacher Training trainees are looking forward to teaching seniors, people in recovery, tweens and teens, incarcerated people, and more. Our graduates teach in studios, gyms, schools, and community centers. They also teach privately, and tell us that their lives change in positive ways due to the deepening of their own yoga practice since completing the training.
