Taking the 200 Hour Therapeutic Yoga Teacher training with Soma Yoga Institute was one of the best decisions of my life. Not only is the Kalani resort fun and beautiful, but effortlessly simple and made my yoga journey feel complete. This is a wonderful opportunity to connect, or reconnect, with nature, yourself, and with the other amazing yogis in training.

Incredible Faculty

The 200 hour therapeutic yoga teacher training with Liz and Molly is one of the best yoga teacher trainings without a doubt. It changed my yoga practice and my life forever. While these two have their own unique styles, they seem to compliment each other like yin and yang. Not only will you get to break down poses into their most basic elements. You will learn to do them with the most integrity of your life. Also, you will gracefully push yourself into poses you never thought possible for yourself. Personally I got into my first solid handstand and crow pose while I was there. I continue to practice them daily.

In addition to their motivational teaching style, there are phenomenal guest speakers. We enjoyed the wisdom of Chuck Miller who did a workshop of our most basic poses. My body has never been so aware and my sun salutations have never been stronger or more mindful. This comprehensive program allows you to explore physical postures, anatomy, sequencing, practice teaching, meditations, the business of yoga, and other interesting workshops that make it easy to wake up early feeling genuinely excited to learn. In addition to all the amazing things you will learn from this program, these instructors teach in a way that makes it easy to put what we have learned into action in every day life and feel comfortable about teaching it to others.
