Continuing Education for Yoga Teachers

Returning in 2024: 200-Hour Foundational Yoga Teacher Training

Starting in January 2024, we are delighted to again offer a 200-hour foundational yoga teacher training (aka 200YTT) at Carrboro Yoga! Your lead teacher is the inspiring Alexandra DeSiato—a professional educator who is herself a graduate of this program. Click over to our 200YTT page to read all about it.

Let’s Grow Together

Because training as a yoga teacher is a lifelong practice, we offer ongoing continuing education. Anyone can join, regardless of background or teaching experience.

You’ll help your students best when you nurture your own practice and hone your teaching in exactly the places you need it. Our continuing workshops help with both. Each also offers Yoga Alliance continuing education credits, aka YACEPs.

Study with Sage Rountree

Our co-owner and director of our continuing education yoga teacher trainings is Sage Rountree, PhD, E-RYT. Sage is an expert on yoga pedagogy and has long specialized in teaching yoga to athletes. Basketball Hall-of-Fame Coach Roy Williams was her private student for over a decade, until his retirement.

These yoga teaching workshops are convenient to people in our geographical area:

We want a world with a broad diversity of yoga teachers. Thus we offer need-blind reparatory and gratitude discounts for these trainings. We encourage BIPOC and Indian/Indian American teachers to join.
