As the first registered yoga teacher training program in the Washington, DC area, Tranquil Space has set the standard for quality and integrity for more than 10 years. Our teacher trainees have been providing our unique blend of vinyasa with an emphasis on superior student assists throughout the area and beyond, teaching across the region and all over the world.
A Tranquil Space trained teacher knows much more than how to pronounce sanskrit names and sequence a class. Our graduates are ready to integrate mindfulness and philosophy into their teaching – helping future students live their yoga on and off the mat. Our programs are divided into segments to help you learn at the pace that is right for you:
Level 1 is our introductory 40-hour intensive which deepens your personal understanding of yoga and can help you determine whether you wish to pursue a more comprehensive training. Graduates walk away with the foundation necessary to teach a basic class and a greater awareness of their own practice.
Level 2 challenges you to go deeper into your own practice and refines your ability to teach yoga through the integration of philosophy, anatomy, and sequencing. Combined with the Level 1 pre-requisite, it meets the requirements for the Yoga Alliance 200-hour certification.
Advanced Teacher Training is designed for experienced teachers who already have 200-hour certification, but seek to sharpen their teaching and explore the advanced subtleties of the practice. The culmination of Advanced Teacher Training is the Yoga Alliance 500-hour certification.
Prenatal, Postnatal, and Tots & Tykes Teacher Trainings are open to teachers as well as those with no prior teaching experience. Our specialty trainings prepare graduates to share yoga with these communities.
