About Atha Yoga Training

Our Beginnings

Atha Yoga Training was founded for yoga teachers and yogi’s who want to explore the full spectrum of yoga (beyond asana!). As teachers ourselves, we understand the demands of teaching yoga and how important it is to keep yourself nourished, inspired and educated. 

We were tired of going it alone and having to settle for sporadic teacher centered practices and trainings to enrich our own teachings and practices (and also trying to fit them into our busy teaching schedules!). As our practices and teachings evolve, we need to be able to dive deeper into the trove of teachings, techniques and gems yoga has to offer. 

Teaching yoga can be one of the most fulfilling careers but it can also be lonely. With Atha Yoga Training, we seek to provide the community embrace that makes yoga teacher trainings so special but for us all to have access to it 24/7 and at our convenience. 

Come join our sangha of yoga teachers and stay nourished and inspired!
