“Yoga does not transform the way we see things. It transforms the person who sees.”


Consider Gopi Yoga Teacher Training if you:

  • Want the eyes and means to help your students have deep yogic experiences. 
  • The journey of Yoga is a lifetime of expanding deeper and deeper into your hearts.  Bhakti only activates in community through experience.  Let’s light our internal embers together! 
  • Have taken many scattered trainings and workshops and desire to crack the code of how these different modalities all fit together.  
  • Wish to gain a better understanding of the history of yoga asana and how it made its way here.  India, oh India… 
  • Seek confidence in your understanding and ability to teach body mechanics, philosophy and the history of yoga. 
  • Want to expand your private clientele but feel you need more expertise on teaching in intimate settings. 
  • Know that there is not one but many forms of “yoga philosophy” and want to understand this vast topic deeply and how to choose your own path. 
  • Yearn to hold moving, spiritually inspired classes but so far lack the confidence/experience in your own knowledge of yoga.  Learn the magic trick that is gifted to us step by step in the texts.   
  • Want to elevate your own vibration; to hold the seat of the teacher optimally in your classrooms and in your life.  Become the vessel for the Absolute. 
  • Want to pursue being the best leader you can be for your students.
  • Desire to establish yourself as an expert of Truth.

In Gopi Yoga Teacher Training you will GAIN:

  • A thorough study of the following primary texts: the Srimrad Bhagavatam, as well as an advanced examination of the Yoga Sutras Book Three and Four.  
  • We will not simply be studying the texts, we will be participating in the practices and disciplines all designed to release the conditioned Soul of the confusion of the material illusion.   
  • Experience the Truth of who You really are.  Sat- Truth, Chit – Knowing, Ananda- Bliss.  You are Satchidananda in your birthright.   
  • Advanced asana (physical postures) study with a focus on alignment, body mechanics and refining how to help specific bodies instead of generally teaching to the whole room (this especially helps with teaching private clients) 
  • Different approaches to the Art of Assisting so that you can develop confidence in your own style. 
  • Experience with advanced ancient meditation and pranayama techniques.  Every thing you need is already inside of You.  
  • An anatomical understanding of breath and pranayama & the ability to speak to the science of breath in your teaching. 
  • A community of committed students & teachers of yoga to grow alongside through study, practice and deep conversation

Gopi Yoga Teacher Training starts mid-October 2023 and runs through May 2024 meeting primarily one weekend per month. Benefit now from our “early bird” registration that is truly affordable.
