You have more inside you than you think. More energy, strength, passion and purpose. You are like no other, and Zuda is like no other. You deserve to live an empowered life, and Zuda Teacher Training is about helping you live your most vibrant life.

In 8 weekends, which includes a Graduation retreat, you will find the courage to walk through resistance and release what is holding you back. You’ll come out on the other side transformed.

Zuda’s teacher training is built on a strong foundation of more than 20+ years of experience and more than 500 graduates. You want the best, and you deserve the best.



Topics covered include:

  • Power Vinyasa
  • Ashtanga Vinyasa
  • Sequencing
  • Breath
  • Meditation
  • 8-Limb Path of yoga
  • Yoga anatomy & physiology
  • Finding your voice as a teacher
  • Giving feedback
  • Receiving feedback
  • Deeper levels of listening to others

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 all over the world!

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.
