We are excited to announce that Happy Dog Yoga Studios has partnered with Ground & Center Yoga to offer a module based, Yoga Alliance approved, 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Program.

What is a module-based program? In a module-based program you decide how to attend. As a yogi on your teacher training journey you can either start and complete the modules in order, completing the program in as little as 9 months. Or, you can attend the weekend modules as it works with your schedule. With this option, you'll have 18 months to complete the program once you begin.

What if I'm already a teacher and I'm interested in attending? You can join us! If there is a module you're interested in learning more about, you are invited to attend and will earn continuing education credits for Yoga Alliance. Remember, as a Yoga Alliance registered Yoga Teacher you must complete 30 hours of yoga related training every 3 years!


January 3rd - 5th, 2019
Foundations & Movement: Exploring the Styles of Yoga
In this module you'll learn about the many lineages and styles of yoga, including Hatha Yoga, Ashtanga, Vinyasa Yoga, Iyengar, Kundalini and others. There will be a strong focus on the movement styles of practice, including learning about Vinyasa Yoga, which was born out of the Ashtanga lineage. This module will cover the primary series of Ashtanga yoga and its foundations, including pranayama and drishti.

February 7th - 9th, 2020
Sequencing & Assists: Creating an Experience
Moving from one yoga posture to the next in a flow style practice should have the same fluidity and seamless transition that is often observed in dance. This transition is also important to practices that incorporate slower movement and longer held postures. In this module you will learn how to sequence and theme a class so that your classes move seamlessly and your students can connect with themselves and experience all of the intended benefits of their practice. You will also learn how physical and verbal cues and adjustments can help your students tune into their bodies and achieve mind-body connection in a safe and intelligent way.

This program is designed to meet YOUR needs. Want more details? Head on over to groundandcenteryoga.com to read more and sign up!
