Balanced Yoga’s 200-hour Teacher Training is an extraordinary opportunity like no other. Rooted in the Baptiste Methodology™, this all-encompassing training is designed with our core value in mind: community.
We’ve joined forces with Columbus’ most knowledgeable and impactful instructors to create an integrated space to discover for yourself a profound embodiment of the yoga practice on and off the mat. You will awaken new pathways to cultivate awareness, understanding, authenticity, confidence and freedom in all areas of your life.
Our welcoming and supportive environment will empower you to tap into your fullest potential, to lead and live as a natural expression of all that you are. Through asana, meditation, personal inquiry, group discussion, philosophical application, community building, hands-on coaching, assisting, practice teaching and leadership coaching, you will develop the technical knowledge and personal skills needed to teach a powerful yoga class, to any population.
*This is a Yoga Alliance certified teacher training.*
