200 HR Yoga Teacher Training

with Emily Burton and Siri Peterson Cavanna and special guests!


The Yoga Dive, Nevada City, CA


The Yoga Dive’s 200 hour Teacher Training is designed to deepen your understanding of yoga and it’s practices, as well as help you identify your unique voice as a teacher. You’ll receive comprehensive training in teaching alignment-based hatha and vinyasa yoga classes and cultivate the knowledge and confidence to teach a safe and engaging yoga class to a wide variety of students. During the course of this program you will discover, cultivate, and refine your authentic voice as you step confidently into the practice of teaching yoga to others. Together we’ll learn how to articulate instructions clearly and succinctly, skillfully observe and adjust students, develop and weave relevant class themes, learn therapeutic alignment principles, inspire students and teach from the heart. Trainees will benefit from individualized attention, ample opportunities for practice and feedback, and deeper integration into a community of like-hearted souls.

Yoga teacher training is appropriate for experienced students who wish to pursue teaching and current teachers wishing to expand and fine tune their skills and abilities. It is also appropriate for passionate students who simply wish to deepen their practice of yoga.  The 200 hours of yoga teacher training consists of 100 hours of the Yoga Immersion, followed by 100 hours dedicated to the art and science of teaching. All trainees who have completed a 100 hour Yoga Immersion  or another 200 HR Teacher Training are eligible to attend.  Please contact Siri  or the Yoga Dive for more information.

Emily Yoga Teacher Training


I am an E-YRT 200 anusara-inspired yoga teacher.  After teaching in Los Angeles for many years, I followed my heart and relocated to Northern California.  I now live in Nevada City, CA. with my husband and our ever-amazing little boy, Alden.  Last year, I opened The Yoga Dive- a long time dream- with my good friend Laura Brownell. Owning a yoga studio and creating a community of yogis has been an amazing experience. I’ve learned so much and am so inspired to create programs, workshops, and experiences that bring people together.

My teaching style is candid, clear, and concise- with a focus on alignment. I create classes that weave together universal heart themes with my personal truths and your physical application.

I absolutely love helping students become teachers and find their own unique voice and style. It is such an amazing process to witness. This is the 5th teacher training that I have co-taught and I’m thrilled to be using my experiences from the past to create a powerful and cohesive yoga teacher training here in Nevada City!


Graduates of both the Immersion and Teacher Training are eligible to apply for their RYT-200 with Yoga Alliance.  Graduates of an Anusara Immersion and this Teacher Training are also eligible to apply for Anusara Elements status through the Anusara School of Hatha Yoga.
