200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training in California
This course is open to anyone interested in using yoga as a tool to uncover deep truth, well-being, and healing. Our 200 hour yoga teacher training is a transformative, in-depth experience that exceeds certification requirements by fusing mind, body, and soul.
A Modern, Mystical Approach
Teaching in the traditional yogic methodology, we view yoga as a lifestyle, a science, and an art. Our course combines modern yoga practices with the colorful histories, traditions, and philosophies of the past.
A yoga teacher training with Full Circle Yoga School can deepen your understanding of Prana (life-force energy), energetic healing, spirituality, crystals, and essential oils. These elements are woven into practical and scientific courses on anatomy, sequencing, and breath — all in an inclusive and accepting atmosphere.
Finding Your True Path
Our training doesn’t stop at a certificate. We’re committed to helping you grow and expand deeply on a personal level, so you can fully express yourself in every moment. Ceremonies, mantras, and rituals will guide you towards deep personal healing throughout your training.
Many students experience rejuvenation from past experiences, detachment from emotional energies and a deep shifting of priorities. You will leave this yoga teacher training feeling expanded and empowered as an individual.
Immersion in the Yogic Lifestyle
True yogic living teaches us to expand our consciousness and live a higher vibrational experience filled with beauty, presence, grace, and bliss. Abstaining from alcohol and coffee, detoxing from digital devices, and eating a whole, vegetarian diet are just a few yogic practices we encourage students to follow during training. These small shifts can ignite enormous transformations that provide balance, peace, and wisdom on and off the mat.
