THE MESA RIM DIFFERENCE
Mesa Rim Yoga Studios offer a wide variety of yoga styles for all levels, from traditional to modern practices. Our teacher training offers in-depth exposure to all aspects of yoga, from its ancient roots to current research and modernized yoga styles.
The goal of this training is to provide a platform to share that diversity so that each student can experience the richness of a multidisciplinary approach and be optimally prepared for an entry-level position at almost any yoga studio.
JOIN THE MOVEMENT
Graduates of this program can expect to leave with the ability to confidently teach inclusive, all-levels vinyasa flow classes while incorporating the deeper aspects of traditional yoga. The curriculum includes anatomy & physiology within the scope of instructing yoga, trauma-conscious considerations, history of yoga, yoga philosophy, yoga for climbers and athletes, meditation, pranayama (breathwork), yoga class sequencing and theming, how to find your authentic voice, and the business of yoga.
This comprehensive program is a modern approach to the art of teaching yoga. Mesa Rim’s training considers how adults learn and offers a variety of resources, training materials, and projects to encourage exploration of modalities within and beyond the traditions. This program is for anyone that wants to learn more about themselves, the practice of yoga, or the art of teaching. Whether or not you plan to professionally pursue teaching yoga, you will deepen and enrich your relationship to movement, meditation, and yourself. Expect to personally and professionally evolve while you build lasting relationships with your peers in this expansive training.

“The YTT program at Mesa Rim helped me realize how capable I am not only of teaching with confidence but also of learning more about myself and how yoga improves my climbing and my capabilities in other activities I enjoy. Growing from this program within the large, supportive community of Mesa Rim made the experience even richer for me.”
“The Mesa Rim Yoga Teacher Training has been such an adventure! There were moments of bliss, moments of frustration, and moments of life altering knowledge that were indescribable. I feel honored to have learned so much from such a diverse group of humans who are all unique and extraordinary in their own way. I am so grateful for every experience that I had during this training and will do my best to remember these lessons forever.”
“I decided to take part in this training solely to learn more about yoga and the philosophy behind it. The training was a life-changing and one-of-a-kind experience that brought me so much more! It allowed me to create lifelong friendships in a place that I was new to and form everlasting bonds with the teachers and trainees. It sparked my interest not only in learning more about yoga but also teaching it. Mesa Rim’s approach of bringing in multiple teachers really gave me a well rounded, all inclusive training.”
“Mesa Rim’s YTT program moves you through the stages of learning by discussing what yoga really is, how to anatomically align your body, the philosophy of yoga as it applies to how you live, as well as how to further develop yourself to lead and teach. Would recommend for anyone who wants to learn more about yoga and yourself.”
