Tuladhara Yoga Teacher Training

Become a Teacher, Stay a Student, Experience Transformation!

Tuladhara 2021 FALL YTT starts September 10th-November 21st

Immerse yourself in this life-changing experience. The main requirement for this teacher training is a deep commitment to YOU. Students of all levels are encouraged to use this yoga teacher training to continue a journey of personal exploration and connection to  enhance a current yoga practice and/or become a yoga teacher.

Whether your goal is to teach or explore the depths of your yoga practice, Tuladhara’s Yoga Teacher training will be an incredible and soulful experience that will be inspiring, challenging, and transformative!

We host two teacher trainings per year – one that starts in January and ends in May, and one that starts in September and ends in November. Both programs are part time programs that fit nicely into a busy schedule. 

2021 Teacher Training









Our part-time 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Program is the best choice if you have commitments to work, family, and other activities during your course of study. Our curriculum offers structure for an ideal learning environment, but also flexibility to meet your busy scheduling needs.

There are a lot of programs out there, why choose us? First, we have years of experience in learning and teaching, making our teachers some of the most dynamic knowledgeable teachers in the area.

Our teaching staff is diverse with knowledge stemming from many different lineages of Yoga and your training will reflect that diversity. We believe in the power of this process and invest fully in its integrity. It is not just our goal to train you to “teach” a class, but to help you understand the depth of the practice and to be able to tailor it to your future students if that is the path you decide to take.
