“Live it to give it” = our program motto.  Throughout the course, trainees are asked to attend three yoga classes per week at Sid Yoga Center, attending class with Sid as often as possible or a more local yoga studio.  Receive discounts on all classes, packages, workshops and more! In order to teach to others, we first walk the course in our own life. To empower others, we are to first empower ourselves.
Teach from YOUR strengths. With emphasis on personal strengths in an encouraging and fun environment, teach from your heart with a clear, strong voice .  This intimate course of study highlights the unique gifts you bring to the world.  Learn to teaching classes that are expressive of who you are, and lead others on a path of physical and spiritual awakening.
Mentorship. Experience first-hand support from other Sid Yoga teachers along your journey. We are truly one big FAMILY and supportive community. You will gain access to practicing in Sid Yoga classes which will instill the teachings inside you.  You are arranged in a small group with a mentor, a Sid Yoga teacher, to have direct support throughout the program with bi-weekly check-ins.

” I could never have imagined how empowering this process would be. My mind has been blown open and my heart has never been more active. I’ve learned tools that I can implement into my life immediately to see you to shift and others that I have experienced myself.  This is so much more than an opportunity to learn the power vinyasa sequence and tools of teaching. I had an awakening I never anticipated possible.”– Amanda Bussey

” I have only been taking yoga classes for about six months. I really didn’t feel ready for teacher training but I was really encouraged to do it. I am so happy I did! It has helped me become a better and happier me. I cannot wait to take the next 100 hours in phase 2.” K.R., Gulf Shores, AL
