We invite you to refine your own spiritual practice and learn how to help others develop a life of greater health, happiness, and wisdom.

Join us and other like-minded students for Washington’s first ever Yoga Teacher Training Course.

The intention of the Teacher Training/Advanced Studies program is to provide a skillful training with emphasis on deepening one’s personal yoga practice as the source from which grows informed, creative teaching and lifelong learning, as well as to train each aspiring teacher/student to become an effective and authentic vehicle for the teachings of yoga. This training upholds the 200hour standards intended to strengthen the integrity of a certified yoga teacher.

Sheryl and Tom’s programs are among the most highly regarded and comprehensive programs in the area for yoga study, based on an exceptional curriculum comprised not only of top-quality training in the practice and teaching of asana, but also of deep examination of yoga philosophy and the other 7 limbs of yoga.

The weekend format makes it easy to participate, and the duration of the course over 6 months assists integrating the work of the course into daily life. The 200 Hour program will provide you with the skill, knowledge and confidence to begin teaching yoga.

Included in the Teacher Training is a 6 week Mindfulness Training

Mindfulness training through Open Studio is loosely based on Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn’s groundbreaking “Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction” (MBSR) program developed at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center. We believe in the method of using meditation and yoga to cultivate awareness and reduce stress. It is based on the ancient practice of mindfulness, which is about waking up, being fully alive, and being present for the richness of each moment of our lives. Within this awakening, we gain access to our deepest inner resources for living, healing, and coping with our daily existence, even when stress and discomfort arise.
