We meet in an INTENSIVE WEEKEND FORMAT:  Thursdays 5 – 9, Fridays 4 – 9, Saturdays 9 – 8, and Sundays 9 – 7, with Bhakti and Inspiration Breaks!!!  Engage the practice of teaching an alignment based vinyasa yoga, om flow.

There will be ample breaks for meals and micro-rejuvenation retreats, as well as mentor meetings and teaching practicums. However, we suggest strongly that you arrange to unplug over these weekends and give them to yourself as a gift… spend as much time in the immersion of your studies and embodiment of the teachings as possible… Once accepted into the program, a book list is extended. We encourage you to get reading and working on the executive summaries of the texts prior to the training! Engage the practice of teaching an alignment based vinyasa yoga, om flow.

This program leverages the The Roots of Teaching Yoga, an inspirational, foundational teacher training program to inspire yourself into the forest of learning that is a lifetime of yoga. What is the Tillai? The Tillai Tree Forest stands as a reminder of this great myth of consciousness, humanity and the beginnings, evolutions and adaptations of the great teachings of yoga.

INCLUDED in the cost of registration is a ten class card to om time to be used DURING course of the training, augmenting personal practice and embodiment of the teachings.

Leveraging the education provided by our nationally regarded and well-respected faculty, you will be able to inspire yourself and others on a path of wellness, sustainability and radical self-empowerment.


We believe that the path of teaching yoga falls at the dancing midline between science and art.  Therefore, the practice and the offerings of yoga are constantly evolving and one’s education is never complete, but is instead invited into ever deepening layers and levels of study and communication.

Our programs offer Immersions into an embodied yogic path to advanced degrees of inspiration and attention.

Reach… 500 Hour, Expansion, Connection, and Communication, A full program from solid roots to expressive reach.

Ommersion – a 100 hour explor-atorium covering the basics of immersing oneself in a practice of yoga.  This program explores the following:  the basics of a personal yoga practice; selection of a yoga teacher, style and path of study; historical and philosophy overview; wholeness and wellness through nutrition and self-care; discussion of the basic families of yoga asana, their general alignment and purpose.

Reach… 500 Hour. Our comprehensive 500 hour program is a combination of our Tillai program and our Rising 300 hour program to inspire a student into a full conversation with personal gifts and talents in the vast world of yoga and yoga teaching.

True sustainability of heart, mind, body, and inspiration on a yoga practicing and yoga teaching path comes from artful self-reflection, full participation, and an education that allows one’s niche to emerge.  Making one an expert in one’s branch of:  yoga, yoga lifestyle coaching, yoga therapy, teaching to special populations, and yoga teacher development; allows one to develop a true relationship to one’s career and placement in a vastly expanding yoga universe.  The right tools, the right reflections, the right training encourages one to carve authentic experience from which one can authentically shine forward with absolute confidence and integrity.

Our electives drive and differentiate our 300 and 500 hour programs and our graduates.  We are stepping beyond educating sound yoga teaching skills and instead find our passion in anchoring the yoga leaders of tomorrow in real time, evolutionary skills, today!
