Yoga Union / Alison West

Live your passion! Change your life!

ALISON WEST, PhD and chair of Yoga for NY, leads the powerful “Gold Standard” YUTTs. Limited class size and seasoned guest teachers make for an unforgettable experience. The 200TT lays the ground for smart, informed teaching, and a clear foundation in the fundamentals of anatomy, meditation, pranayama, and Yoga philosophy.

If you want to jump start your teaching career, you are strongly urged to consider the 500TT, which continues the “Gold Standard” quality of Yoga Union’s 200TT in its rich eight-month program. Become a confident, inspiring teacher at the intermediate+ level, explore in greater depth the subtle aspects of Yoga and its philosophy, and develop a sustaining, transforming self-practice. Excellence, integrity, hard work, inspiration and fun–these are some of the qualities you can expect from both the 200 and 500TTs. The limited group size will allow you to receive abundant personal attention in an atmosphere of sustained inquiry and friendship.

Unique to the YU 500TT, you will receive Basic Backcare Certification, and Level One Wall-Rope Certification. You will also come away ready to teach two marketable workshops. A 200TT Certificate is awarded in December (providing you have met all requirements) allowing you to start teaching.

Class audition required. For the 200TT Summer Intensive, there is a 10-class minimum requirement before the start date.
