GoYoga’s Level 1 Foundations of Teaching Training, led by GoYoga founder and owner, Alissa Rodgers, and a team of experienced GoYoga teachers, offers an empowering, effective and efficient approach to help you gain a solid understanding of the yoga tradition and cultivate the inner teacher that exists inside of you. Our Level 1 Foundational program is the entry to point to all of our teaching programs and will prepare you to teach as well as supply you with a solid base from which to grow and expand ongoing as both a student and teacher.
Whether your journey into Teacher Training is rooted in a commitment to caring for yourself, diving deeper into the life-changing benefits of yoga or your future as a teacher, in this training you will find increased clarity and confidence in your practice, a deeper connection to caring for your body and mind, and an empowering way to share this knowledge through your teaching. Experience firsthand the transformational power of the tools of yoga through immersion in the practice, self-exploration, group discussion, activities and plenty of real time teaching opportunities…we start practice teaching on the very first day! If you are passionate about yoga, have a desire to learn more and grow both on and off your mat and are possibly dabbling or maybe even confident in wanting to share yoga in some capacity, then jump in!

- Basic anatomy terminology and concepts
- Yoga pose clinics
- Verbal and physical assisting
- Creating an empowering experience for students
- Strategies for teaching to specific populations
- The business of yoga
- Letting your authentic voice shine
- Daily practice teaching, yoga classes and meditation practice
- Reading and independent study (note: you will need to complete approximately 25 hours of outside class work, including reading and establishing a regular home yoga and meditation practice)
