The Summer Moon All Seasons Teacher Training is a journey through Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall honoring the traditions of yoga and learning to teach with integrity. There is no better time to dig into the inner workings of Self and the ancient tools of yoga that help us navigate the world with more peace and ease. 

We will be guiding you beyond just the physical layers of the practice and into the meditative and healing aspects of yoga. Our All Seasons Teacher Training Program blends traditional yogic teachings and spirituality with earth medicine to provide a holistic, synergistic, and applicable approach to living this practice. This one year program is designed for souls with an interest in yoga, meditation and spirituality with a sincere interest in deepening that connection to live your life with intention and more fully aligned with your truth. We view and honor yoga as the nature around us, as a spiritual practice, and as a path to conscious connection, deepened awareness, and mindful living. Over the course or our year together, we will learn to practice and teach with integrity and heart by exploring different paths to connect including movement, chanting, Ayurveda, ritual and ceremony. On this journey, we embody yogic living, fully immersing ourselves in the experience of living and breathing this practice on and off our mat with our beloved community. This path asks for dedication, discipline and courage to look deep within to uncover our truth and our own authentic connection. Understanding the value of teaching yoga as a service and being of service to others through yoga, everyone is accepted, supported, and encouraged through their process. Through our community, we create a comfortable safe expansion on all levels.
Without our daily distractions, habits, and patterns, a new way of perceiving the world is revealed. Let’s come together in promoting interactions with Nature, healing with the frequencies and rhythms of the Earth, and implementing natural plant and earth-based medicines, including essential oils and sacred herbs through ritual and ceremony. This training holds a mandatory week-long retreat component in nature. Ask your family, including your children, your friends, and co-workers, to support you in your experience by letting them know that you will be asked to “completely unplug” and eliminate all communication for the retreat. We realize this is not always easy and although it’s not mandatory, it is highly encouraged for maximum enrichment and integration
