We proudly offer:

There is no time like the present to join our Yoga Alliance Registered 200 and 300 Hour Teacher Training! Our Authentic Yoga Teacher Training (AYTT) offers a program that truly fits YOUR schedule. Classes are offered on an ongoing, rotating basis throughout the year. You choose the topics, times and dates that work in your schedule, in order to accumulate 200 or 300 contact hours within 12 months. Regular classes are offered throughout the year, PLUS four times a year (January, April, July and October) we offer an “intensive schedule,” which provides a minimum of 75 hours of training per week. Most students complete either the 200- or 300-Hour program in six-to-nine months, but you do have 12 full months from the date you begin to complete all your hours. Click here for more information.

Our studio at its core, offers practice, teaching and philosophy based on presenting students with direct experience.  We serve the individual student by presenting methods that allow each student to see through the workings of our own minds, to ground our experience in the present moment, and to develop a clear and compassionate understanding of the ideas and beliefs which support how we live our daily lives.  A fundamental aim of the teaching at Dave’s Astanga Yoga is for us all to keep an open mind  --  there is no dogma here.  We  honor and refresh the traditions of the astanga vinyasa system, making the practice applicable and accessible all.  We encourage students to read, to contemplate, to question.  We encourage students to experience other traditions and lineages to challenge, to critique and to refine our physical practice, to expand our minds, and to open our hearts.

We also rent the studio to yoga teachers of all yoga faiths! Inquire about our rates and availability »
