• Hot House Yoga is a Yax Yoga Concepts certified studio. All of our teachers have been trained and hired from Yax Yoga Concepts Teacher Training Certification Programs. We also encourage any students who have a desire to deepen their practice and understanding of these ancient teachings to participate in a Yax Yoga Concepts training. These trainings create high level, inspiring teachers that are the hallmark of Hot House Yoga studios.

    Yax Yoga Concepts is certified through Yoga Alliance to teach 200-hour and 500-hour level teacher trainings. Having studied with masters from many spiritual traditions as well as the many great teachers from the Hot Yoga and Vinyasa lineages, Yax Yoga Concepts’ focus is to develop powerful people into inspiring teachers. With over 10,000 hours of teaching experience, the teacher training programs are designed to provide an in-depth exploration into the process and science of yoga. The programs are physically, mentally and spiritually challenging, but because we cannot teach where we have not been, this work is necessary to develop ourselves into effective, heartfelt teachers. Yax Yoga Concepts teacher training programs offer the opportunity to dive deep into the practice of yoga and the fulfillment of sharing the path with others.

    200-Hour Teacher Training

    The 200-hour Teacher Training program explores the process and science of yoga. It is designed to transform passionate students into powerful teachers. It has two main intentions. The first is to teach the core principles of yoga and how to implement them into daily life, positively shifting the way we live and how we perceive our world. The second is to develop within each student the key attributes of a teacher. We’ve designed specific training drills that dramatically accelerate that learning process. Upon graduation, you’ll be able to confidently lead group classes through two systems, Niyata (Stability) and Vinyasa (Flow).

    500-Hour Teacher Training

    The 500-hour Teacher Training is designed to deepen the understanding of the transformative process of yoga.  This training lays out the path for teachers to become powerful healers, to transform their classes into works of art. We must be willing to live in accordance with the principles of yoga if we desire to teach it in the most authentic and healing sense. Understanding and applying these principles, we develop the skills to step into our classes, and our lives, with open hearts and clear minds. How we teach becomes a representation of who we are, how we live, and the love within us.
