We are committed to honoring the roots of yoga by preserving its ancient wisdom and philosophy while adapting its practices to the needs and values of our modern lives.

We believe that a yoga and meditation practice can have a profound impact on someone’s life, and that it should be accessible to all. Our teacher training program reflects these values and will provide you with the tools you need to provide high quality yoga classes for any population!

“This program offers an incredibly transformative experience. All of the teachers that lead the program wholeheartedly share their knowledge and love for yoga in a beautifully unique and authentically executed way - that allows all participants to feel comfortable and supported, yet appropriately challenged, in the transition to the role of a yoga teacher. I would highly recommend this program to anyone looking to expand their practice, knowledge of yoga, and learn how to teach!”

“The Yoga Loft teacher training was exceptional. All teachers were highly knowledgeable and professional. I would recommend this school to anybody who is interested in becoming a yoga teacher or wants to deepen their yoga knowledge. Amazing atmosphere and commitment from the teachers from the first day and throughout the entire program. I learned so much that I was able and confident to start teaching right after the graduation. I couldn’t be more grateful to the owner of the studio for creating a very inviting and welcoming atmosphere, the director of the program for her great knowledge and passion, and all the teachers for their outstanding support and love for yoga that they so eagerly shared with all of us. Beautiful, meaningful training that touched on every aspect of yoga.”

Larissa Noto

Program Director, Teacher
I teach yoga because it’s so much more than just a physical practice – it’s a whole lifestyle — a mindful, accessible path that you can use to carry you through all the things that life throws at you to still feel connected, centered, calm and present to all that happens within us, around us, and among us

Carrie Morgan

Lead Teacher
I practice yoga because I have learned so much about my mind through a deeper understanding of my body-mind-breath connection. I teach yoga because I want to help everyone else experience this freedom too.

Miriam Sandler

Lead Teacher
My way “in” has always been through movement. Learning to align my movement with my breath centered me physically and emotionally in a way I hadn’t realized I was missing. I teach yoga to offer that same sense of peace, contentment, and mind/body alignment and acceptance to others that has so profoundly allowed me to feel at home in my own skin.

Melanie Smith

Yoga has always been a therapeutic place for me to land. By exploring the physicality of my body and the quality of my thoughts on the mat, I’ve been able to learn a great deal more about myself from a place of compassion and understanding. This has empowered me in all aspects of my life and this is what I want to share with others. This is why I teach yoga, to hold space for people to be curious about their thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations so that they too can feel more comfortable, curious, and empowered about their own lives, minds, and bodies.

Rachel Abott, Teacher

Studio Owner, Teacher, Business of Yoga
Yoga gives us space - to slow down, to set aside everything on our minds, to breathe, and to feel. I love teaching yoga and sharing this spaciousness with my students. No matter how someone feels when they walk into class, they feel better when they walk out, and it’s an honor to be a part of that.
