At Southwest Atlanta Yoga, we believe yoga teacher training is about more than simply memorizing asanas. We aim to transform our students into yogic and spiritual leaders, helping them: 

  • Get in touch with what inspires and moves the individual physically, spiritually and emotionally

  •  Re-awaken the soul with a sense of identity and divine capability

  • Stand in their confidence and authentic voice 

Using our three-pronged philosophical approach, we create teachers with newfound strengths that can help on the mat and off.
