Founder, Amy Pearce-Hayden graduated her first class of 200-Hour Teacher Trainers in 2005, and has graduated teachers annually since. The Level I Yoga Teacher Training is an intense 6-month program appropriate for students ready to explore how teaching Yoga can change their life and the lives of others, or for students who wish to go deeper into their personal Self-Realization through the traditional practice of Yoga. This RajaHatha Foundation Course and its instructors meet the standards of Yoga Alliance and awards National Certification upon successful completion. September 2021 will be her 21st cohort and the 18th year of beginning training. (September 2021 will be hosted virtually, with opportunities for in-person private work, if local to Madison.)
September 2021-March 2022

After building a strong community of both graduates and a faculty ready for the next level of immersion, Amy offered the School’s first 500-Hour Teacher Training Certification in the fall of 2010, sited to be a complete year of training, self-study, and yoga therapeutic training. The first graduating class was in October 2011.
The School's training is so often referred to as “A YOGA IMMERSION” since it aims to offer the grounds for individuals ready to understand yoga as a way of life by studying and applying the sacred and ancient, yet modern approach to healthy and spiritual living. At the same time, the program prepares the individual to be readied to teach a complete and cohesive yoga class upon Certification. Many students over the years have chosen to take this Teacher Training Course as a means to deep self-study, to better understand yogic living, or to become an active yoga teacher in their community. Many serious students have also taken the course as a life process without the desire to teach, but as a path to joyful living. Whichever the reason, the student can expect to be transformed!
