This 1000 hour training will accelerate the process while facilitating a keen understanding of the detailed curriculum developed by Wren deVous herself. You will have the opportunity to gain practicum experience and assist with teacher trainings for an entire year, with a minimum of 4 complete sessions.


Training yoga teachers is a wildly satisfying career. If you find yourself looking for a great opportunity to train and learn with an experienced professional, please tell us a little bit about yourself and why you’re interested in becoming a teacher trainer.
