About the Program

Contemplative Practice Yoga®  teacher training is an accredited program and Yoga School (RYS 200), with Yoga Alliance, the national accrediting agency for Yoga Teacher Training in the United States.

Accreditation means that our program and curriculum meet the standards for certification as a Contemplative Practice Yoga® teacher as well as Registration as an RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) at the 200 hour level with Yoga Alliance (RYT-200).

This training is unique in that our classes are small.  They are modeled on private tutorials students receive at Oxford or Cambridge Universities.  There are never more than 6 students in any given yoga teacher training.  In this way you receive personal attention and mentoring that create deep understanding of the principles of the practice and of their application in classes and in private teaching.

The High Plains Environmental Center is host to our trainings.
