Enrollment for the Spring 2024 Course is Now OPEN!

Aloha everyone!

All of Bryan's Teacher trainings whether in person or online cover the same content and have the same objective. All true wellness and health come from a calm and peaceful mind. And I’m excited to offer my unique Online Teacher Training grounded in this belief.

This course is designed to empower you and provide an environment where your unique understanding and perspective of yoga emerges out of direct experience and dialogue and you become confident in sharing it. Ultimately, I want you to emerge with a sense of your own style grounded by the life experiences that have informed you as well as your own consistent practice.

In this course, I share everything I’ve learned in my 41 years of yoga practice and 35 years of teaching yoga.

Over 8 weeks:

- Develop and strengthen your voice
- Discover your unique style and approach
- Strengthen your asana practice
- Learn to meditate & explore the benefits of meditation
- Learn a complete sequence of flowing poses that you can share immediately
- Learn the multi-dynamic possibilities of all yoga poses

Who is this Training and Immersion for?

Anyone who wants to deepen their practice, has the desire to share a deep practice, and enrich their range of offerings.

Who is this not for?
