ZUDA Teacher Training: Phase 1
200-Hour Yoga Alliance Certified
SAVE THE DATE: Summer Training Intensive is June 11 - July 28
Since 2006, ZUDA has trained more than 250 teachers who have gone on to open yoga studios and teach around the world. You'll join a group of people who are ready to move deeper into themselves and into their own power.
This life-changing experience encompasses 3 weekends over 1½ months. You’ll be exposed to a breadth of knowledge and learning that take years to attain. No experience or knowledge prerequisites are required for this training — only a deep commitment to YOU. Students of all levels are encouraged to use this training to begin or continue a journey of personal exploration and acceptance, and to develop or enhance a current yoga practice, assisting skill and/or teaching.
This is a process of transformation for those who want to teach and even for those who don't. A teacher's deepest responsibility — and ultimate reward — is the ability to transform the lives of individuals seeking physical and spiritual growth.
You’ll learn from ZUDA leaders, Anne Marie Kramer, Jessica Micheletti & Amanda Johnson, who have the experience, patience and compassion to challenge and uplift you. All have trained with the most influential teachers of our time. Each continues to walk the path of a student by devoting several weeks each year to workshops, trainings and retreats.
Topics covered include:
The practice of leading a class and teaching others is critical for you to gain confidence and experience. Our teacher trainees begin teaching others the very first weekend and continue honing their skill throughout. Since we come from a perspective of “serving others,” each student finds a way to share yoga in their own communities. You’ll leave this program prepared to teach a vinyasa style yoga class anywhere. Our graduates go on to teach at locations throughout Sacramento and beyond, including ZUDA, and even create new classes to bring yoga to others.
Expect to be challenged on many levels and discover new areas of awareness and acceptance for yourself. These insights can change your path in life while connecting you with a deeper meaning for living. All of this occurs within a safe, trusting environment, where you are supported, encouraged and loved.

During my second experience of ZUDA's program, I found myself diving deeper into my yoga, taking more risks in my teaching and being more supportive of my classmates. I feel more comfortable in my own skin, more connected in my relationships and more open as a yoga teacher. —Bailey Wobschall
Each time I went through the training, I not only connected with my own heart, spirit and body in ways that inspired me to be the greatest I can be, but I also connected with a community of supportive people who grew stronger together through willingness and vulnerability. This process is exceptionally empowering. —Amanda Starr Bronson
I have never felt so consistently full of life as during the weekends I spent in ZUDA's Teacher Training. It felt like traveling to a new land; although I was fatigued from the demands of the journey, everything about life was brighter, shinier, more real. I left every weekend totally exhausted, but freer than I can explain. —Kailey Hull
Teacher training was such a life changer that I embarked on the journey twice. I learned that the world comes through me — not at me — and this perspective is how I meet each day. I learned that I am strong enough and perfect just the way I am, even in all my humanness. I learned to appreciate my yoga mat and the space I give myself each day to reconnect and breathe. —Stella Premo

We show up, burn brightly in the moment, live passionately, and when the moment is over, when our work is done, we step back and let go.
