A Message from our Lead Trainer:

Hello incredible humans!

Are your ready to have a conversation about what comes next in your yoga journey? If so, you’ve stumbled upon the right page! Hopefully the content provided can help guide you towards making the best decision for you.

The reality is, if you are imagining yourself at the top of the room, experiencing a mixture of excitement and panic at the thought, welcome to the club! If the practice has impacted your life in ways that seem hard to comprehend, and you feel hungry to uncover what is happening internally and externally, then congratulations! We want to meet you and yes you are ready!

Embodying the 8 limbs of yoga is like learning a new language. This is why we believe the immersion approach is the most effective for our graduates. It takes years of practice (or lifetimes depending on your beliefs) to fully understand how life changing this practice can be. So your first 200 hours of training is going to expose you to the tip of the iceberg and begin to uncover blind spots in your awareness. Think of it like a total mind, body, and soul refresh. An unplugging – if you will.

The Pure Living Yoga Method Teacher Training is designed to pull out your authentic voice. It’s truly what defines us as teachers and what equips us in our everyday lives. When we lean into our enlightenment of who we REALLY are, underneath and before insecurities set in, a version of ourselves (sometimes only experienced in childhood) rises to the surface. In this training, there will be a strict focus on the realignment of the physical body. This is so we can plug into our power source and pull from our deepest inner wisdom. When we become fully empowered, competitiveness and feelings of inadequacy are eliminated. The question of whether or not we are “good enough” to be called teacher is released. Everyone has a story and the world needs to know yours.

Upon leaving this 200 hour Teacher Training, our hope is that you’ll identify with your role in this industry and as a teacher. You are not only going to be equipped with the tools necessary to become a successful yoga teacher, and make this a career path if that is your choosing, but you will leave feeling grounded in who you are, more open with who you are, accepting, balanced, and powerful in who you are. You will be stripped down to your purest forms. This is the Pure Living Yoga Method. We can’t wait to start this journey of a thousand steps with you!

With love,

Brenna Bote
