200 Hour Hot Yoga Teacher Training
AWAKEN. EMBODY. EMERGE.
A new and unique training starts this January, led by co-owners/instructors Karen & Aaron Ledesma. While completion of our program will equip you to teach the traditional Hot Yoga sequence that we teach at Yoga 365, there is much to be gained from the training even is teaching is not your end goal. More than just a typical Teacher Training, these weekends are about cultivating confidence in yourself, creating community in which to explore the deeper callings of your life, and exploring the nature of personal practice to generate and sustain inner transformation.
Whether you feel called to become a teacher of the traditional Hot Yoga series, are interested in taking your practice of Hot Yoga to a deeper level, or are looking for an opportunity for structured learning and inner transformational work, we will help guide you in the direction you wish you go. We are passionate about learning in community!
Combining Aaron’s distinguished background as a Major League Baseball Player and Coach with Karen’s background in Psychology and Spiritual Formation, their goal is to coach and encourage you not just how to become a teacher of this practice, but to embark upon a path of self-discovery and Dharma Discernment, on which you challenge yourself to grow in the directions of your dreams. The training is supplemented by talks and presentations from leaders in the fields of Anatomy, Ayurvedic Healing, Yoga Philosophy and Body-Centered Therapists.
The Yoga 365 Hot Yoga Teacher Training is focused on supporting you to dive deeper into your own practice and build confidence to teach others as well. Our program is certified by Yoga Alliance and takes into account each of the fundamental units of study with an emphasis on deepening your practice, fostering your teaching skills and encouraging personal growth. Weekend Immersions balance a strong, hands-on educational component with opportunities to integrate and embody the deeper, transformative dimensions of yoga in your practice and in everyday life.

What makes the Yoga 365 Teacher Training special?
Comprehensive Syllabus: Depth of study in the science and philosophy of yoga, as well as inspirational and clear instruction in the art of teaching.
Inquiry-Based Curriculum: One foundation of this course is learning about oneself in relationship, learning about one’s conditioning and habits, and the art of inner listening and observing. It will be a personal journey that will also serve as a foundation for professional development and your educational, supportive role with students. It is only when we link with our deepest self that we are able to connect to another. In that light we will have sessions within each weekend devoted to shared inquiry, learning about ourselves, and the nature of embodied awareness and yoga.
Supportive Community Environment: Expect true transformation in a supportive and structured setting.
Mentorship: The relationship between student and mentor is central to yoga. Regular meetings, the development of a personal practice and its evolution over time form an important part of the training process.
