we are accessible, collective and inclusive

Evolation yoga teacher training takes place at various times throughout the year. We offer hot yoga teacher training and flow yoga teacher training 250hr (RYT – Yoga Alliance) certfications. Qualified teachers can join us for our beyond 26+2 next step certification. There are also special dates throughout the year for meditation and kids’ yoga teaching courses. You can choose the program that works for you. Whether you want to teach, open an evolation studio and explore the business side of yoga, or gain a deeper experience teaching meditation.

Our trainings are typically delivered in an intensive 4-week deep immersion program.  For all its value this approach may present an obstacle for prospective teachers. Life circumstance and commitments often preclude a student from pursuing the path of the teacher. We understand this and therefore offer our training as an extended, (up to) 6 month program as well as in one or two week modules. This way you will be able to complete your certification by attending trainings in different places and at different times on a schedule that suits you.

yoga teacher training to fit your schedule

There are many ways to become a part of evolation. Trainings take place throughout the year, and are offered for Hot, Flow and Beyond 26+2 yoga. We also provide additional Meditation and Kids yoga teacher training. You can attend a four week immersion course at one of our many locations, or take a more flexible option so that our yoga teacher training works for your schedule.

flexible teacher training programs

Evolation yoga has two new training options for students seeking yoga teacher certification: Modular and Extended. These options, based on evolation’s primary teacher training curriculum, offer an alternative to traditional training regimens where students are required to remove themselves from their daily lives for 30 or more days to attend training. Students now have the option to successfully complete teacher training in four – one week modules or via flexible weekend and week night sessions spanning a 6 month period.

As evolation continues on our collective journey we look to serve as many aspiring yoga teachers as possible. With our module and extended teacher training approach we are able to reach a group of aspiring yogis whose life circumstances make attending a traditional training program impossible. We developed these programs to provide another access point to the rapidly growing community of prospective yoga teachers.

extended option

Training is typically delivered in an intensive 4-week deep immersion program. For all its value this approach may present an obstacle for prospective teachers. Life circumstance and commitments often preclude a student from pursuing the path of the teacher. We understand this and have developed an Extended Teacher Training program to broaden the opportunity to teach to all who are called to do so.
You may now start your evolation teacher training process any time that works for you. You will be able to complete the course from 6 months.

The syllabus is designed to accommodate your individual needs by utilizing periodic workshops, study groups, lectures, reading assignments and remote interaction. By maintaining a regular practice and participating in at least one of our immersion trainings on a part-time basis you will be able to become a certified evolation yoga teacher on a schedule that suits you.

modular option

Along with full immersion and extended options we offer training delivered in discreet one week modules for both Hot and Flow programs. The training, modeled on our full immersion curriculum, is divided into four segments or modules. Each module can be taken separately in different places and at different times that suit your schedule. We currently have the modules option scheduled across five continents in 2014.

The deposit is non-refundable but if there is any need to change your plans, it can simply be used for a different training location or date.

your payment options

We know teacher training is a serious commitment of time and resources so we try to help make the costs as manageable as possible. We accept a single payment, four installments or sometimes even smaller payments spread out over a longer period.

Our trainings are offered in small and intimate groups. Places are limited – so apply today to avoid disappointment.

Book your place

Scheduling and organizing life around a yoga teacher training can be a task for most of us as it is, let alone those with children. Trying to find childcare and something that works around the training schedule can prove to be nearly impossible. Not to worry. We are here to offer the solution by providing onsite child minding services throughout the training.

Both Leticia Leyva and Jeannie Savage completed the 250 hour teacher training in Santa Barbara with evolation earlier this year and know firsthand what an amazing, life changing experience it is. In order to allow you the space within your own life for this beautiful experience to happen, Leticia and Jeannie are offering their services to care for your children. As a branch of the evolation team, we work hard to see to it that we fully embrace all of the key principles that make evolation what it is by being flexible and accommodating, always striving to evolve to fit any and everyone’s needs. We want to give you peace of mind as a parent that your little ones will be receiving the highest quality of care from people who have experience and expertise in caring for children, who will love and care for them just as you would.

Your child’s days spent with us will be occupied with a mixture of activities: games, events, outings and best of all kids yoga! The outings and events offered will depend on location, the individual needs/wants of you as a parent, as well as prior commitments already in place in your child’s schedule (school, lessons, extracurriculars, etc). We know that this will be a big change for you and your little ones and that having mom and/or dad busy with studying for 12 hours+ every day will be quite the challenge, we want to offer you the easiest, most affordable and logical solution by providing onsite childcare in order to allow your child’s schedule to remain as normal as possible. Services are based on your need (cost dependent on number of hours needed).

Please contact us via email to discuss further details: leticia@evolation.com or jeannie@evolation.com

 

I am a certified yoga instructor!!! This has been one of the most incredible journeys of my life and I thank everyone who has been a part of it in any way. It's a dream come true!!– Kahley Cuff, Santa Barbara 2013

I left the Evolation Training confident in my teaching. I learned so much, not only about the 90 minute hot yoga class, and what words you have to say, but also anatomy, philosophy, meditation, and the most I learned about was myself – Hadley Carr, Costa Rica 2014

I was very impressed with Evolation Hot Yoga as the class size was small and intimate. The Teachers were very much hands on and stayed true to the teachings of yoga. Not just asana's, pranayama and anatomy but stayed true to the teachings of yoga with spirituality of the Yoga Sutra's and the Bhagavad Gita.– Dick Winn, Santa Barbara 2013
