At Full Circle Yoga School, we embrace yoga as a complete way of life, a scientific practice, and an art form. Our comprehensive 200-hour yoga teacher training program combines traditional Hatha and Vinyasa practices with modern mystical techniques, as well as the rich history, philosophy, and culture of yoga. Our course goes beyond the basics of teaching yoga and delves into areas such as breathwork, meditation, energetic healing, and spirituality, all within a supportive and inclusive community.
Our curriculum covers a range of practical and scientific topics, including kriyas, anatomy, sequencing, and various meditation and breathwork techniques. Through it all, we emphasize the importance of cultivating an awareness of Prana, the life-force energy that animates our bodies and minds. By integrating these diverse elements, our training offers a holistic and transformative approach to yoga that will empower you to become a skilled and confident teacher, while also deepening your own personal practice.
At Full Circle Yoga School, we believe that obtaining a certificate is only the beginning of your journey. We are committed to providing ongoing support to help you continue growing mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Our training goes beyond just physical practice and often leads to transformative experiences, such as releasing past traumas, achieving emotional freedom, and gaining a new perspective on life. Our graduates leave feeling empowered and expanded as individuals, ready to share their knowledge and impact others.
At Full Circle Yoga School, we believe in true yogic living that enhances our consciousness and enables us to experience higher vibrational states full of beauty, grace, and bliss. As part of our hybrid online and Hawaii-based training, we encourage students to follow specific yogic practices such as abstaining from alcohol, limiting or eliminating coffee, and adopting a whole, vegetarian diet. These simple changes can trigger significant transformations in one's personal life, bringing balance, peace, and wisdom both on and off the mat.
Our trainings attract students from all over the world who seek to join a vibrant, supportive, and soulful community. During the immersion-style retreat portion of the course, we create a unique "yoga bubble" that has the potential to be life-changing. Our graduates attest to this profound sense of belonging and guided experience that comes from our culture of truth, courage, and love.
