The Practices of Leadership and Empowerment Yoga Teacher Training
This is a yoga training that’s more than just a yoga training. It is indeed a leadership training and an opportunity to find a reliable anchor into your own power that can transform your whole life.

For those of you who are first-time teachers, you will get to teach from your centre right from the start, and establish strategies of life practice (not just teaching practice) that allow you to access your own power, and to be clear, and to find resonance in every group setting into which you enter.

For those of you who are already 200-hour teachers – this will be a starting and useful re-calibration; a mentoring in rooting into the most powerful access-point for your students, and for yourself.

This is the training for you if you are looking to become a vessel for great beauty, for the scintillating energy of unity that underlies everything, for becoming a steward of power and peace in your life, whether you go on to teach yoga or not.

And there will be laughs, for sure. It will be supremely fun.

‘Leadership and Empowerment’ – I chose those words for this training because after my own training with Tara, I felt that I could stand as a leader in the world like never before – and because of the profound empowerment that arose within as I took up the seat of the teacher, and anchored more deeply into my own life’s mission.

I lovingly invite you to join us and step into that flow of love and grace and mind-being-continually-blown that has been my experience of becoming a yoga teacher. And becoming more adept and alive in everything you do in this life!

100 hour Anusara or Practices of Freedom and Wellbeing Immersion.
OR 200 hour previous training, with permission from us, and we recommend the Empowered Practice with Clear Alignment to prepare you in the basics of the Anusara method.

May 14 – 18

(100 + hours total)

Why study with Tara Judelle?

June 8, 2012

Standing outside the front door of her Hollywood apartment, my eyes full of her great height propping open the screen door, I offered Tara the following compliment: that a class with her was as satisfying for me as sinking my teeth into a good essay. Now, for her at the time, I suspect this rang [...]
