Join the longest running yoga teacher training in the area! Our 500 Hour instructors bring varied experience, years of teaching between them and a passion for teaching that is infectious.


Deepen Your Practice. Heighten Your Knowledge. Grow Your Confidence. Fulfill Your Dream.

The CMYW 200 hour yoga teacher training offers instruction in classical Hatha and Iyengar style yoga. Students will learn how proper alignment creates stability, strength & balance. We focus on the proper use of yoga props; to help the students practice with ease and without stress or strain. Through the process of yoga training we learn how to incorporate yoga on the mat into the yoga of our daily life. We learn how postures, meditation, and breathing techniques are rooted in the moral principles. CMYW’s Hatha yoga teaching training program is designed to maximize a student’s potential as a yoga teacher while receiving in-depth information and practice in asana, pranayama, and meditation. We draw from anatomy, physiology, traditional yoga philosophy and psychology, to the modern knowledge of the body and mind. Our program is unique in its integration of all the elements of yoga practice, which when combined will make your life happier, healthier and more productive. CMYW’s Yoga Teacher Training is designed to enhance your personal knowledge of yoga and provide you with the confidence and skills necessary to safely teach yoga.
