300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training

Introducing our new

Advanced Training Program: Enlighten & Expand

Embark on an enriching journey to deepen your yoga practice and elevate your teaching skills with The Yoga Loft’s 300 Hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training Program. Designed for 200hr certified instructors and dedicated practitioners seeking a transformative experience, this program goes beyond the fundamentals, delving deeper into the ancient art of yoga and making it applicable and accessible to our modern world. 


Offered primarily via weekend modules, an invaluable integration & personalized mentoring component, and a mix of online and in-person programming – our advanced training is designed to be more accessible to busy professionals, full time yoga teachers, teacher trainers, and anyone who wants to take their training further than the base 200 hour programming.


Join us on this empowering path to elevate your practice, inspire your students, and unlock new dimensions of mastery in the art of yoga.

“I was incredibly lucky to have found The Yoga Loft to complete my 300 hour training. The teachers were not only incredibly knowledgeable but also kind, supportive and always made themselves available to my needs. The studio was a great environment to do the training and seamlessly transitioned to online training during the pandemic. I highly recommend The Yoga Loft for teacher trainings.”

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
Larissa's Bio & Class Schedule

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.
Carrie's Bio & Class Schedule

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.
Miriam's Bio & Class Schedule

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.
Melanie's Bio & Class Schedule

Sangeeta Vallabhan

As a practitioner, yoga has helped me feel proud of who I am and become my own friend, rather than adversary. As a teacher, I aim to help people feel heard, seen and comfortable with themselves. It’s an honor to work with students and teachers who have recognized the trauma they’ve survived and trust me to help guide them as they move through the world with more agency.
