We practice yoga because it makes our lives better - healthier, happier, more holistic. Knowing yoga's amazing power to change our own lives and open us to our truest and greatest potential, we're inspired to share it with others. And in sharing it with others, we come to learn even more about ourselves, to more clearly see the fullness of our lives, to live more consciously, to give more lovingly. 

 

I teach yoga because I know from many years experience that it can make everyone's life better, regardless of age or condition. With nealrly a quarter century of steady practice and a strong background in education, I choose to write books on teaching yoga and to train yoga teachers because I believe in intelligently and passionately sharing the practice.
 

If you share these values - that yoga makes life better, that yoga is for everybody, and that everyone deserves the best possible teacher - then I invite you to explore what I have to offer. Like life itself, yoga is constantly evolving. By stepping onto the path of the teacher, you're opening to more fully participating in the creative evolution of this ancient practice that you know makes a world of difference in millions of people's lives. Keep breathing and become part of making that difference.

One good thing that resulted from the pandemic is that so many trainings moved to an online format. Working full time, it's not as easy to get away for a couple months to complete 300 hours of training. I'm so grateful that Mark Stephens offered an online training. It was very well thought out and delivered. The modules were clear and easy to follow, the videos were professionally presented, and the content was perfect for next-level exploration. We had live sessions twice a month where we could connect with Mark and other participants to further our learning and have open discussion and practice time. I recommend this training to all my current teacher friends. Full Review
