It presents an in-depth, embodied curriculum in a way that is expertly laid out and easily followed. Moving from practical applications of traditional philosophy and texts through the Yoga Tune-Up Embodied Anatomy Module and principles of asana alignment, to conscious communication and sequencing skills, and deeply into self-exploration.

It is led by the best yoga instructors across the country, teachers who have trained extensively, continue to evolve and are compassionate in their teaching approaches.

“The Pure Yoga Training program was an incredible and beautiful experience. I have been empowered through the well-planned courses, guided to excellence by wonderful, dedicated teachers, and truly blessed to be a part of this community with my fellow students. Not only did the program exceed my expectations in furthering my physical practice and knowledge of alignment, it prepared me for the next step in my journey. Thanks to the attention paid to the business of yoga, not even a week after our graduation, I scored a teaching position. The entire course is incredibly well rounded, peaking a new thirst in my heart for resources of yoga knowledge and philosophy. I was constantly challenged and pushed to truly embody a quote that came my way during training: if you aren’t living on the edge, you are taking up to much space!”
