Roots Yoga Burlington


Root’s 200-hour program will advance your practice, take you deeper into the many layers of yoga, build your confidence and help find your voice. This program is designed for both those wanting to deepen their practice and for aspiring teachers.

Participants will learn the fundamentals of a comprehensive yoga practice including alignment-based asana; vinyasa; pranayama; meditation; mindfulness; anatomy and physiology specific to yoga; a study of the Chakras; Ayurveda (the sister science of yoga); and yogic history; and philosophy as described in the Yoga Sutras of Pantanjali.

Emphasis will also be placed on the techniques of teaching, including use of voice and body language; learning to observe bodies, modify poses and sequence classes with ample time allotted to “practice teaching” with a focus on dynamic sequencing and transitioning throughout the program. Even if teaching is not the ultimate goal, learning to articulate the principles just studied is a powerful learning tool.

Participants interested in teaching will emerge from our 10-month training program confident and ready to start teaching after graduation with at least one learned, practiced and memorized classes to allow for a seamless transition from class to field/from student to instructor. Graduates will be well-trained professionals ready to teach a variety of yoga classes with confidence and skill.

Roots' Yoga Teacher Training faculty will be comprised of our current staff of instructors and well-known guest leaders and instructors with years of experience leading RYT200 hour teacher trainings in and around Boston and the North Shore.

The training starts each September and students graduate in June.

Our training consists of a 10-month teacher training program lead by instructors who are dedicated and who bring their knowledge and passion to our training program. You will receive your Yoga Alliance RYT200 certification upon completion of all the requirements.
