This unique training is for all people who are interested in deepening their yoga practice with the option to teach. We are a Yoga Alliance approved training offering a level of credibility to attaining work as an instructor. The bedrock of this training is mindfulness and social justice. We approach the yoga practice from a holistic place to give a full well rounded experience. It is deeply encouraged for students to find their own voice and expression of the practice that is rooted in the individual experience. Our approach is bringing the internal to the external, the subtle to the gross. This training is life changing.

The Tree is a special community. At the heart of the studio is a commitment to social justice, to nonviolence/anti-violence, and to active service. The Tree is truly an example of accessible yoga: with teachers of color, with multilingual teachers, w/ all classes being donation based and truly not turning anyone away, w/ teachers and the training emphasizing yoga can be for all bodies and all levels. The asana training and offerings are great and the community and practice of yoga off the mat is invaluable. I am deeply grateful to have received my yoga training through them and recommend them very very much.
