They shared their vast knowledge and love of yoga with integrity, quality and authenticity. With the demand for well-trained teacher, the renowned YogaWorks Teacher Training Program was created.

Their mission is to bring everyone into the fold of yoga—honoring, embracing and guiding each student’s growth and fulfillment.
