Caroline Klebl’s 200 and 500 hour Yoga Teacher Trainings take place in Beverly Hills, California and in beautiful tropical retreat locations around the world. Caroline Klebl trained with Ashtanga Yoga Guru in India for over nine years and teaches traditional Ashtanga Yoga Led and Mysore style classes throughout her Yoga Teacher Training Courses. The emphasis of her Yoga Instructor Training is the practice of the over 70 Yoga postures and countless Vinyasa (breath initiated movements that link one posture to the next) of the Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga. More advanced students are taught the postures of the Intermediate Series one at a time. Caroline Klebl’s Yoga Teacher Training includes traditional instruction and chanting of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, study of Ayurveda, the Anatomy of Yoga postures and Meditation instruction. Her Yoga Teacher Training also includes instruction in teaching the basic principles of the Ashtanga Vinyasa method and teaching and adjusting each Yoga posture of the Primary Series.

Led by master teacher Christy Marsden, Yoga Blend’s program is perfect for newer students looking to get their feet wet and start their process of becoming an instructor or deepening their own practice. While the program is a step above an “immersion” as it is a Yoga Alliance accredited 200-hour teacher training, the minimum requirement to attend is a 6-month dedicated practice. The curriculum includes the history and philosophy of yoga, the Yoga Sutras, pranayama and meditation, a basic introduction into anatomy and physiology, how to develop your sequencing and themes, the business of yoga, how to teach and correct asana practice, and some special programs on Chakras and Ayurveda.

While many of the Los Angeles yoga teacher training programs are run from very “modern” and sophisticated type of schools, Yoga Den has taken a more cozy approach to how they have set up their studio and training. Led by teacher Liza Villagomez, the program incorporates and teaches everything from Vinyasa, Power Yoga, Anusara, Ashtanga, Iyengar and many other hybrid styles. As you can see, their approach to yoga is very easy going and free flowing as they pull from many traditions based on the principle of what works. Another great value for the program is that they also teach alternative healing methods such as Reiki, Shamanaic Healing, Ayurveda, and many other modalities.

Shiva Rea offers Los Angeles residents a treat with her yoga instructor certification programs held at Exhale in Venice, CA. While many of her courses take place all over the world, she does have a home base at Exhale where students can take immersion programs with her. These courses are perfect for newer students looking to deepen their practice and find out if they are truly ready to teach. More so, it is a great opportunity to see if you truly want to dive in and take a 200-hour yoga teacher training.
