Hatha Yoga Teacher Training

Welcome

Hot Yoga Renton is proud to offer a 200 Hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training Program starting in January of 2022 led by Jessica Winters & Nicole Hamilton.

Participants can expect to complete this training with understanding, clarity and a unique voice with which to confidently teach the 26/2 Hatha sequence commonly practiced in hot yoga studios in the tradition of the Ghosh lineage of yoga, as well as, the knowledge and confidence to teach their own sequenced class. Trainees will also be provided a foundational understanding and introduction into yoga philosophy and history alongside a study of anatomy as it relates to yoga asana.

Program Details

Over the course of 3 months, we will meet 8 times in-person, and 8 online sessions to complete our 200 hours of training.
