Registered Yoga School - RYS 200Registered Yoga School - RYS 500

Our intention is that students who complete the NOURISH Yoga Teacher Training Program are prepared to begin teaching yoga classes immediately upon completion. We encourage our students to become substitute teachers at NOURISH to continue to gain experience and offer promising graduates opportunities for teaching at our facility.

The NOURISH Yoga Teacher Training Program exceeds the Yoga Alliance 200 Hour Certification standards. While there is no state sanctioned certification for yoga teachers in the State of California or nationally, there is a voluntary certification program with Yoga Alliance. For more information on what the standards are and how they have been developed please contact Yoga Alliance.

"I consider enrolling in your yoga teacher training not just a decision to become a yoga teacher, but a decision to follow a dream and to create a better life for myself. When the student is ready the teacher will be there and that couldn't be more true. I had already been inspired by your yoga teaching and your willingness to take chances and follow your dreams (opening the Om Room and then later NOURISH). When I began your yoga teacher training program I was inspired not to just teach yoga according to textbooks, but to teach from the heart. If I am a good yoga teacher, it is because you have inspired me to be the best yoga teacher I can be and to teach from my heart. You continue to inspire me, thank you Victor."

"Victor’s yoga teacher training was thought provoking. He was a trainer and a student, always willing to learn from us. He is refreshingly down to earth, not egotistical, despite his passion and vast knowledge of yoga. His sense-of-humor kept things fun. He challenged me enough so that I felt prepared, but offered equal support and comfort. The teacher training was well rounded, inspirational, and educational. I whole-heartedly recommend this training whether you become a yoga teacher or solely for a personal journey."
