The SÅANA Method: foundation

200-hour yoga teacher training

You have something to teach that no one else can offer. The SÅANA Method is a teacher training designed to give you a deep understanding of our signature approach to yoga and the collective wisdom of yogic tradition. Most of all, we want you to have access to your authentic voice. Once you complete this course, you will be qualified to teach yoga, your way. Take a deep breath and sit with that. Are you ready (or ready to be ready)?

SÅANA classic and SÅANA flow are the embodiments of our beliefs: move with soul and from the soul, stay grounded in thoughtful movement, breath deep and free. Our teachers all bring their own experience and spirit to the class, but we stay rooted to our principles. This commitment to our core beliefs and equal commitment to ourselves is what we hope to spark in you.

THE FACULTY

After 15 years and a couple  of  lifetimes of collective teaching hours, we are still awash in gratitude for Yoga and how it has changed our lives. We believe in the powerful methodology that has been honed at SÅANA. We all have our own stories and we tell ours in the studio: with our words, our tone, our movement and our breath. We can’t wait to hear your story and help you tell it with grace.
