Beloved Yoga School & Certifications

When we begin to develop love and reverence for Yoga in our lives, we may find that we are inspired to share it with others.  We can look at life as a school and Yoga as the tool to navigate. We have designed the Beloved Yoga school with this in mind. We offer comprehensive Yoga Alliance approved Teacher Training programs:  200hr Teacher Training,  300hr Advanced Teacher Training and Intro to Befriending Yoga Therapy, 85hr Prenatal Teacher Training, and 95hr Children’s Yoga Teacher Training.


First, at Beloved Yoga School, we endeavor to deepen your own knowledge and practice and begin the inquiry with the question ”Why?”. Then, we learn the methods of teaching and sharing to inspire others.


At Beloved Yoga we strive to support you through your journey of self-discovery by blending the wisdom of modern yoga as inspired by Sri Krishnamacharya, specifically sharing the method of Vinyasa Krama and the philosophy of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.  We feel that there is one Yoga and various paths on the journey towards the philosophy, practice and state of Yoga. The paths we share in our school are Raja, Hatha, Jnana, Tantra, Bhakti and Karma. Unique to the Beloved Yoga School,  we teach a trauma-informed yoga methodology: giving the power of choice, safety and clarity in our cueing and sequencing as teachers. We offer a well-balanced root for you to manifest and grow from.


At Beloved Yoga School we are committed to lifelong learning and have developed a range of certifications to offer support to dive in deeply in areas of interest, specialty, and study. Click on any of the blocks to learn more about each Beloved Yoga School Certification.
