200 HR Yoga Teacher Training


with Siri Peterson Cavanna, Chrissy Graham and Saraswati Clere


YogaKula, Berkeley, CA


Yoga Kula’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  YogaKula for more information.

MOVING ENEGRY: Exploring Anusara’s 5 Universal Principles of Alignment  

with Siri Peterson Cavanna at YogaKula in Berkeley, CA

September 16th and 17th, Workshop from 1-4pm; Q & A from 4-5pm


When applied to the asana practice, this elegant system of alignment refines our perception of our own life energy and allows us to move that energy (physical, mental and emotional) in meaningful and direct ways. On Saturday we will use standing poses, hip openers and forward bends to investigate how these principles can help us to ground and release long held tension. On Sunday we will explore how optimal alignment in arm balances and backbends reconnects us to our powerful centers, evoking the heart’s joyful unfolding…
