Grit & Grace

Welcome to this amazing journey of learning more about this practice of yoga. The title of our program, Grit and Grace is aligned with the concept of Yin and Yang, Sthira and Suca...the balance of pushing ourselves forward and finding grace in stillness and introspection. 

This program is something we are honored to share with you...pulling from our own experiences in our 200 and 500 hour teacher trainings (and many other certifications) we have combined theory with science...finding balance in teaching poses and how to teach a class along with deepening your own practice an understanding of why you practice yoga. 

This is for anyone seeking more...it doesn't matter if you want to teach...the 200 hour program is designed to answer the questions you've been seeking, give you the tools to teach a class and connect back to your inner self. 

What does the Grit and Grace YTT program entail?

This 200 hour program will start with an immersive weekend where we'll get to know each other and open with yoga theory and history. We'll meet for 14 weeks every Wednesday evening and all day Saturdays, with a few weekends off for holidays. 

You will learn from some of South Denver & Castle Rocks best yoga instructors. You'll gain knowledge and understanding of not only the basics of yoga theory, but also the subtle energy bodies, deep dive into anatomy and alignment of poses, yamas and niyamas, meditation and so much more. 

We'll wrap up our time together with an immersion weekend and graduation. Come join other like minded humans on this incredible journey of self exploration, breaking down intrinsic barriers, tapping into your innate inner self and growing into who you are meant to be.
