During your training, you will:

▴ Learn the foundational practices of Yoga + Ayurveda

▴ Deepen your personal practice on and off your mat

▴ Learn how to confidently lead a safe and effective yoga practice

▴ Learn the benefits of daily routine and how to incorporate the practices into your life

▴ Develop personal and professional skills to live a more balanced lifestyle

▴ and more!


Written and created out of love and passion for the ancient practices of Yoga + Ayurveda; this 200-hour training is designed to be informative, transformational, accessible, and fun! The training will take place in a beautiful beach house in the heart of Duck, NC; within walking distance to the beach, food and shopping, the Duck boardwalk, and Village Yoga.

We will work together to learn and understand the foundations of Yoga + Ayurveda and how to bring them into our lives, on and off the mat. Through practice, discussion, and reflection, you will learn how to safely and confidently lead an effective yoga class to a variety of populations.

The training is steeped in the Hatha tradition, however, we will explore different methods and lineages of the yoga practice.

Throughout the training, we will be learning about Ayurveda, the “sister science” to Yoga- the study of life. We will be eating nourishing foods based on the six tastes and balancing qualities. Mealtime will be a time of turning inwards and learning how to prepare food to be used as medicine for our bodies and minds.
