WildYoga Teacher Training Program

A one-of-a-kind advanced yoga teacher training program that integrates a focus on asana practice, meditation, pranayama, Ayurveda, yoga philosophy, and anatomy with the opportunity for deep connection to the natural world.

Offered in the stunning, sacred landscapes in and around Yosemite National Park, the WildYoga Teacher Training invites us to deepen our understanding of yoga and nature, and to share this with the world by becoming a Yoga Alliance certified instructor.

A key aspect that differentiates WildYoga is the integration of the natural world with our yoga practice, and a focus on yoga as a powerful form of environmental stewardship. Re-connect to yourself in the clarity of the outdoors, be inspired by the wilderness, and gain extensive knowledge to carry with you into your community and life at home! 


The WildYoga program is perfect for:

  • Students of yoga who want to take their practice to the next level, deepen their experience and gain new knowledge
  • Students of yoga who want to become certified instructors
  • Yoga instructors who need continuing education credits
  • Yoga instructors who want to gain skills in teaching outdoors and incorporating the natural world and environmental sustainability into their offerings

2018-2019 Schedule and Logistics Information:

Balanced Rock’s 200-hour WildYoga Teacher Training is a comprehensive learning experience spanning 6 months. This allows time to integrate the concepts between sessions. Modules can also be taken stand-alone. 

October 1-7, 2018 | Yosemite Yoga Intensive: Experiencing the 5-Elements.
November 2-4, 2018 | Earth Element: Teaching from a grounded & supported place.
December 7-9, 2018 | Water Element: Fluidity & adaptability in teaching.
January 4-6, 2019 | Fire Element: Discernment and precision in teaching.
February 1-3, 2019 | Air Element: Teaching from the heart.
March 1-3, 2019 | Space Element: Tapping into source for your voice.

Each of the modules will be unique as we deepen our relationship with the 5-Elements through our yoga practice, in our bodies, and by the planet that sustains us. In October we will have seven days together to explore each element in-depth while receiving substantial asana and pranayama practice from faculty. November through March we will break-down and review the elements one by one and create ample opportunity for student teaching.
