200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training starts June 6, 2019


We are excited to announce our first 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Program. Teacher training is a HUGE deal! We are looking for practitioners that have been practicing yoga for at least six months. This can include home practice or practice in a yoga studio. The idea is that you have some concept of what yoga is before diving deeper into the practice as teacher training is a serious commitment.

Oct Service Project

We have seen the benefit of teacher training manifest very differently in each of our lives however there is one constant and that is yoga teacher training was a catalyst for a deeper connection to self through a series of personal growth experiences. It is our desire to offer up the same opportunities for our trainees by providing a comprehensive look at what yoga is and the role it plays in our lives on the mat and off of the mat. 

The lead trainers for the Melanin Yoga Project 200 Hour YTT are Davina Davidson E.D.D and Dr Kiva Davis. Both trainers are registered with Yoga Alliance as Continuing Education Providers and have a combined 30 plus years of teaching experience. 

The program will run from June of 2019 through October of 2019. The training begins with a 10 day immersion and is followed up by 4 monthly meetings. We believe in quality of instruction and trainee experience therefore our teacher training caps at 20 trainees.100% participation is required for certification.
