Our campus is closed in 2020. But we're still here for you. Join Omega Conversations with favorite teachers, and our private  Facebook Group community.

Enhance your teaching skills while deepening your personal practice in this Forrest Yoga intensive training with Denise Hopkins and Heidi Sormaz.

We begin each day with chanting, drumming, and meditation to create the space for healing followed by a 2-hour yoga practice that will heighten your awareness and challenge your body. We create a sanctuary where you can open up, work through issues, go beyond your perceived limitations, and get your individual needs addressed.

In the afternoon, we dive deep into a 4-hour session of training where we build the essential elements of teaching, including effective sequencing (of both poses and classes), sadhana (spiritual exercises), personal and professional ethics, safe and effective hands-on assisting, developing a charismatic presence, and the importance of honesty and clear, concise, and powerful communication.

Yoga teachers who have taken a minimum of a 200-hour yoga teacher training in any tradition and are ready to move deeper into themselves and improve their teaching are welcome.
