discover your true Self
We each take our own path to realize our Self. For some, practicing yoga is that path – Reaching fulfillment from the harmony which yoga brings to their lives. For others, the Self is reached through meditation.
Some have a strong need to pass on the spiritual benefits of yoga and can realize their Selves through the act of sharing. If you feel yoga teacher training is your calling then we can help you reach your goal.

we are accessible, collective and inclusive
Evolation yoga teacher training takes place at various times throughout the year. It is offered at Primary HOT, Primary FLOW, Secondary and Meditation levels. 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.

ready, set, yo-ga!
So, how do you get started? For new teachers, the path to an evolation vocation begins with our Primary Teacher Training. Farther along, we offer two additional phases of training for those who’d like to explore studio ownership, and the more expansive realms of meditation.
expand your horizons – and your offerings
evolation’s approach to yoga is one that embraces flexibility and growth – and we apply that principle to our teachers, too. So whether you’re currently a certified yoga teacher who wants to infuse deeper meditation into your teachings and expand your offerings, or you’re an evolation instructor who’s ready to take on the role of running a studio, evolation has training programs,workshops and retreats to help you make it happen.
career guidance that follows your lead
When you become an evolation instructor, the guidance doesn’t stop with a certification. We continue to help you build a sustainable career in yoga by leveraging your creative energy, ability, and talent and turning these into opportunities. Whatever path you choose, we’ll support you. Just as you’re here for your students, we’re here for you.
learn from your fellow teachers, in the evolation collective
There’s a wealth of brain (and muscle) power contained within our assembled experiences. That’s why we created the evolation Collective, a unique network of instructors and studio owners where ideas, talent, and expertise can be shared in order to fuel everyone’s growth. A resource and a repository, it’s an on and offline community through which you can seek and give guidance, procure and post jobs, share and browse stories, and most of all – strengthen through connection.
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 in Primary, Secondary and Meditation levels. 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.
Primary 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 Primary 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.
Along with full immersion and extended options we offer training delivered in discreet one week modules for both Primary 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 at eight locations in 2013-2014.

You guys have created such a wonderful foundation for people like me entering the yoga world. The hands on approach and style of teaching works. We all as group I felt gelled and had such unconditional love for each other through sweat tears and laughter. We all learnt from each other in so many ways and I could not have become more I touch with who I really am. The journey was difficult but worth it! Thank you for putting up with my challenges, listening and teaching me, resulting in growth and and change I will always be thankful that who am becoming, and what my purpose is in life is evolving.
Thank you, for your knowledge, wisdom and your way of teaching each lesson as though it was your first, full of enthusiasm and passion keeping us engaged and inspired every step of the day.
