So you think you want to be a yoga teacher...
First, ask yourself these questions.
- Are you ready to make a positive change in your life?
- Do you want to tap into your own great potential for growth and power?
- Are you prepared for the responsibility of transforming the lives of others?
If you're ready, now's the time! Here's a short version of my story: I became a yoga teacher because I wanted a new direction in my life — something more positive than what I had going on. I was looking for a way to serve others, a way to express my gratitude. One day my teacher whispered six powerful words to me: "Yoga will change your life forever!" And it has. Being a yoga teacher has been the most fulfilling experience of my life. And it's my greatest joy to pass the gift of teaching yoga on to other students.
"The first thing I feel in Jade's class is that I am safe with her, that she is going to take care of me. She isn't going to baby me, I am going to work hard and challenge myself, and work through difficult situations the practice might bring up, but it's ok, because Jade has an uncanny ability to make all of her students feel somehow protected."Calley Masson

Jade lives and breathes yoga. She embodies it wholly and teaches from a place of love and pure intention. I enjoyed my teacher training and learn to value it more and more as I study yoga and draw from the strong foundation my teacher helped me cultivate during my yoga studies. I continue to learn from Jade and believe I am growing into a better student and teacher as a result. I have and will continue to recommend her classes, workshops and teacher trainings.Savanna DeLuca
The Primary Series of Ashtanga is the foundation to all other styles of yoga. It is a good base structure to build your vinyasa practice. All of the poses of the Primary Series will not be physically practiced in this program. Ashtanga Yoga by Petri Raisanen, will be a study guide throughout the course. During this intensive asana study you will learn the asanas in the series along with modifications and other variations. Learn thematic sequencing of yoga postures as you begin to explore your creative side. Trainees will practice a modified Ashtanga Primary Series and other forms of yoga, which will allow you to teach both beginners and advanced yoga students.
Principles of demonstration of the Primary Series involve observation, proper alignment, adjusting students, assisting, instructing a class from beginners to intermediate, and difference in teaching styles. Students will tap into their intuition and learn the essence of touch when it comes to adjustments.
During the course of your training we will study the deeper side of yoga off the mat. Get inspired by Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras and introduce yourself to The Hatha Yoga Pradapika. Learn about the Eight Limbs of Yoga and how they are interweaved into the Ashtanga practice.
Anatomy & Physiology
Discussion of the body systems, how they work, and how yoga affects them. Take look at the subtle body, explore the energetic effects of yoga and your chakras. Learn about Ayurveda and the concept of the tri-dosha.
Breathwork and Bandhas
Discussion on the principles of pranayama technique. Understand what is means to breath properly in your yoga practice. Acquire a knowledge of your bandhas, location and then learn how to utilize them in asanas along with breath.
Sanskrit terms for Asanas
You often hear in yoga classes a mix of western and eastern terms in relation to yoga poses. This can become confusing to most of us. Discover the phonetic roots of Sanskrit and understand the change in sound when you read words with different diacritical marks. You will be able to correctly pronounce the words in Sanskrit and make sense of the meaning of the names of each asana.
Chanting and Meditation
Chanting is a way of calming the mind and body to prepare for meditation. It is a way to harmonize souls. Learn the traditional Ashtanga chants in Sanskrit with correct pronunciation and meaning as taught in Mysore, India.
Business of Yoga
Gain knowledge about the ethics of yoga, qualities of a teacher, how to promote yourself as a private practice and what it takes to develop a studio.
When I look back at my time in yoga teacher training with Jade, I sometimes find it hard to convey how transformative this experience it was for me. Before I began Jade’s teacher training, I was an avid yoga practitioner that was looking to take my personal practice a little deeper. I without a doubt, got what I wanted, but also so much more.
Jade is an ashtanga yogini that truly lives The Eight Limbs of Yoga. It was something she asked us to do during our training, and thought I admit I did so begrudgingly at first, it really made the training all that more powerful. After I completed my training and my life had settled back into a routine, I began to notice that I had cultivated all these new habits too. I now have a daily meditation practice which I did not have before. This has helped me with mental clarity and an overall calmness I enjoy immensely. I have kept up the habit of studying yoga anatomy and yoga literature on a regular basis. My asana practice has grown stronger thanks to Jade’s requirement of regular practice during training. And I have also had some amazing breakthroughs because I understand my body on a much deeper level anatomically than ever before.
I love the saying, “There is no free lunch here, you have to be willing to do the work that gets the results.” And I think that analogy applies here too. Jade gave me all the tools, resources, knowledge and confidence I could ever need to begin my journey in becoming the best teacher I want to be; wherever that desire may take me.
