Since 1996, we at High Desert Yoga have been offering and expanding our school of yoga. The High Desert Yoga teacher trainings are inspiring, transformational, and some of the most comprehensive in the country, featuring an integrated curriculum taught by teachers with decades of experience. Our high-quality program includes experiential sessions, highly structured student teaching, an overview of yoga therapeutics, and training in many specialty areas in order to deepen and diversify your education.
Many optional specialty trainings are available to supplement our 200- and 300-hour programs. We also host trainings and workshops regularly with world-renowned master teachers such as Francois Raoult, Ramanand Patel, Judith Lasater, Angela Farmer, Donna Farhi, Rama Joyti Vernon, Elise Browning Miller, and Laura Antelmi.
