Yoga teacher training
with janet stone

2024 - RYT 200


Build a foundation for teaching through a commitment to your own yoga practice, learn more about meditation and yoga, or simply connect with yourself on a deeper level.


We are thrilled to announce Janet Stone as Lead Teacher for our 2024 training!  In-person and online modules will introduce the core teachings of yoga, including in-depth training in vinyasa, yin, pranayama, bhakti or devotional yoga, meditation & mantra, anatomy & biomechanics as well as the history, philosophy & ethics of yoga.


We are devoted to creating a warm sense of community, 

a safe space for learning, growing & developing a deeper understanding of the teachings of yoga beyond what we experience in classes. Our invitation is for you to arrive open-hearted, ready to learn, awaken and remember your true nature. As we become more intimate with our inner selves & unwind old patterns, we discover our deepest heart intention. You will be inspired to bring the practice of yoga into your daily life in a very personal way. This course will be a rich, transformative experience for all.


Each trainee will have the opportunity to more fully find their own voice & will graduate with the experience & knowledge needed to teach, if they like, & continue growing as a student of yoga.

Teaching staff

Janet Stone

Always a student, Janet has immersed herself in the ancient practices of yoga for over thirty years. A global yoga teacher, she shares the teachings from the heart. Through curiosity, devotion, and dedication, she creates a unique approach to living yoga. Janet’s yoga journey began at 17 under her meditation teacher, whose reverence for simplicity and joy live on in her practice and teachings to this day. She shares from the depth of her own sadhana (sustained practice), her studentship in the eight-limbed path, her creative approach to asana, and her reverence for bhakti (devotional, heart-centered yoga, including chanting mantra). Janet challenges students to investigate what they think they know, to hold compassion for what they discover within themselves, and to remember presence, the long view & the depth of our interconnectedness. In her words, "This is my passion, where I thrive in showing up to share the wisdom of my teachers in a way that meets the moment. We've created a safe, brave space to bring every part of yourself to the table."
