Experience your connection to the Spirit of Yoga! 

Our program is a Yoga Alliance 300 Hour Registered Yoga School

In this module of advanced teacher training you will experience a deeper connection to spirit, by gaining access to a spiritual practice of your own accord. Meditation is one of the primary focuses of The Spirit of Yoga Module. You will dive into four layers of this practice and deepen your connection to how spirit is moving through your body.

Influenced by his Native American culture, Sid McNairy has brought the foundations of the First Nations people into his teacher trainings. These traditions and his time with his Grandmother have been an integral part of who Sid is today. It is his desire to share these experiences with yoga teachers and enhance their connection to spirit. Part of this week includes Inner Quest which is an opportunity for you to commune with nature, experience Native American culture and the oneness of all.

Additional curriculum includes advanced sequencing, self discovery, posture clinics, and Sid McNairy’s Healing Breath.
