200 Hour Teacher Training 2020


We are excited to announce our second annual 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Program. Teacher training is a HUGE deal! We are looking for practicioners 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.

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 Raquel Nweze and Davina Davidson E.D.D E-RYT 500. Both trainers are registered with Yoga Alliance as Continuing Education Providers.
