In this comprehensive training, you will learn how to safely and effectively teach yoga to all levels of students, learn functional anatomy, deepen your understanding of yoga philosophy, cultivate your individual creativity and voice, and be empowered with the tools and confidence to start a successful career as a yoga teacher.

This training has a strong emphasis on the technical foundations of yoga asana and will prepare you to begin teaching dynamic Vinyasa-style classes immediately. You will learn fundamental principles of movement in a hands-on, highly experiential classroom format. This in-depth training is open to aspiring teachers, experienced teachers, or serious yoga students who are interested in deepening their knowledge and practice.

Upon successful completion of this program, graduates will be certified at the 200-Hour level by Liz Arch to teach Vinyasa Yoga. Please note this is NOT a Certified Primal Yoga® Teacher Training Program. While we will introduce foundational principles of Primal Yoga® in this training, graduates will not be certified to teach Primal Yoga® classes or use the trademarked Primal Yoga® logo or name.  Those interested in teaching Certified Primal Yoga® classes in the future, may use this 200-Hour Vinyasa Teacher Training as the first step toward becoming a fully Certified Primal Yoga® Teacher.

Liz Arch holds separate Certified Primal Yoga® Teacher Training programs throughout the year.  A 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training Certificate is a pre-requisite for all teachers interested in participating in the Certified Primal Yoga® Teacher Training Course, so enrollment in the 200-Hour Vinyasa Teacher Training is an excellent head start.
