Taught by Julian Walker and Hala Khouri over 7 weekends from January to June, the Awakened Heart, Embodied Mind yoga teacher training offers a unique 200-hour Yoga Alliance approved curriculum.

Trina Altman will be visiting faculty for the first time in 2019, sharing her renowned Yoga Deconstructed® full weekend workshop, and 4th-time returning trainer Jay Fields will share her full weekend Teaching People Not Poses workshop, based on her book of the same name. Both of these visiting faculty weekends are included in the training, and are available as stand alone workshops. For more information and a full description of these offerings, click below:

Held in an empathic, experiential and respectful collaborative setting, AHEM seeks to provide up to the minute tools and information that build integrated teachers from the ground up, as well as sharing a brand new fresh perspective for already certified teachers.  Trainees of all experience levels will be supported in having their growing edges challenged and developed.

This modern, integrated training draws on somatic psychology, neuroscience, and Buddhist meditation, as well as exercise science and biomechanics, trauma-informed and social justice perspectives to take you on a transformative, healing, and truly educational journey.
