May 1, 2020| $335
All of our teacher trainings are structured to be beneficial and enjoyable for those who wish not to teach. We believe yoga is a path of lifelong learning. Teacher training is a term that we use because we are Yoga Alliance and Washington State Certified Teaching Vocational School and that is the language that they determined for these classes. But that does not mean that these trainings are restricted for teachers only. We welcome everyone who is curious, who enjoys learning, who wishes to understand yoga in a deeper level.
You can buy the 300 HR teacher training two ways. Either purchase it module per module or buy all 15 modules and save $400.00. If you want to buy all 15, please look for the “Complete 300 Hour Teacher Training” under workshops.

Desiree Wood began her yoga journey over 13 years ago while studying for her undergraduate degree in Psychology at the University of Washington. As a college student she fell in love with the concept of the mind/body connection that her yoga practice inspired. What especially intrigued Desiree was how calm and renewed she felt after practice and how this feeling continued in her life on and off the mat. By studying the medical research pertaining to mindfulness she is able to help her patients and their families cope better with stress, anxiety and illness.
Last year, Desiree became a certified yoga instructor having completed the 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training at Spira Yoga in West Seattle and studies under Dora Gyarmati and Carina Terra. She continues to take workshops and teacher trainings on yoga and is developing curriculum for Spira’s upcoming 300-hour Teacher Training in 2016. Her yoga teaching philosophy is rooted in the concepts of pathophysiology and mindfulness. Desiree believes in the healing powers that can be found through the yoga traditions and provides a holistic/energetic approach to her yoga classes.
