The January 2013 training went so wonderful and we had such an Epic time ~ I am offering another 200 hour Yoga Alliance approved Teacher Training program here at the Shala because, all teacher trainings are not created equal.  While some focus only on asana or sanskrit, others skim from the top and spend only 10 minutes on one topic. I would love for you to join me in January 2014 starting the new year off in a new direction! I invite the serious minded students, who have been thirsting for more knowledge, a deeper understanding of the practice and how it can change your life. This is a one of kind opportunity to learn and study authentic, classical real Yoga. When you graduate, you will be very confident, very knowledgeable, and completely ready to teach! Om Shanti OM

Discover why teaching yoga is such a blessing and honor to be of service!

I am so excited; after 28 years of practicing yoga, to share my abundant life experiences and teachings to help inspire others to move forward on their journey! Join this very special group of 200 hour (RYA) yoga teacher trainees! Bonnie's Yoga Shala Hatha/Raja Level I/II Yoga Teacher Training will first and foremost change your personal practice and guide you deeper into the classical teachings of yoga. Give you all the tools needed, and a much greater understanding of the teachings to be of service to others. The core of the six month training is alignment based Hatha Yoga technique, Raja Yoga technique, Tibetan Japa Mantra,  Yoga diet, Pranayama, teaching methodology, Yoga philosophy and Meditation. It is my goal to share all my lifelong teachings of yoga, and Buddhist experiences.

Bonnie's Yoga Shala is a 200 hr Registered Yoga Studio (RYS) with Yoga Alliance. 

About Yoga Alliance
Yoga Alliance is a non-profit organization that was started in 1999 as a way to create nationally recognized standards for yoga teachers and yoga teacher trainings. More and more yoga studios throughout the world are requiring their teachers to register with the Yoga Alliance, either at the 200 or 500 hour level. Yoga Alliance registration, however, is not a legal requirement for teaching yoga. Currently, there are no legal certification requirements to be a teacher.
