Spring 2018 200-hour Vinyasa Teacher Training

The Yoga Dojo’s 200-hour Vinyasa Teacher Training is a 200-hour level program certified through Yoga Alliance. All students will be able to register with Yoga Alliance for the RYT-200 designation upon completion of the program. Students with existing RYT status with Yoga Alliance will be able to use the training for CEUs. Required areas of study include, but are not limited to:  Teaching Methodology, Anatomy & Physiology, Yoga Philosophy, Techniques Training, and Practicum.   

Although, this particular training reflects the practices, principles, and philosophy of Rocket Yoga, it does not certify you as a Rocket Yoga instructor.  You will need to complete an additional 50-hour training through an It’s Yoga International certified program in order to be a Certified Rocket Instructor. We will have this training available following 200-hour TT completion. 


The Yoga Dojo TT will begin on Friday, March 23, 2018 and run through June 24, 2018 on a Friday to Sunday format.  There will be four weekends throughout the training that we will not meet (3/30, 5/11, 5/25, and 6/15 weekends).

Spine awakening with Nikki Ortiz, Saturday, April 21, 12-2pm

Parts of our spine tend to be asleep, numb and are harder to move. In this 2 hour workshop we will focus on working through the entire spine, learning how to access the parts of it that tend to be stuck. Through a series of yoga postures and exercises we will work towards even and healthy backbends that feel good on the body. We will focus less on depth and achieving advanced backbends, and more on the subtleties of the spine. 

The workshop will begin with a vinyasa style warm up and end with a short meditation. 

$35 by 4/1, $40 after.  Sign up HERE.


Backbend Posture Clinic with Nikki Ortiz, Sunday, April 22, 12-2pm

In this 2 hour workshop we will apply the same method and technique from the Spine Awakening workshop to several back bending postures. We will study and workshop through them, trying to achieve an even and healthy backbend in all of them. Asanas will range from simple to more advanced and complex, offering variations and modifications when suitable, but always focusing on correct alignment and form so we can understand the posture and learn from it. 

The workshop will begin with a vinyasa style warm up and end with a short meditation. 

$35 by 4/1, $40 after.  Sign up HERE.
