Teach Yoga Everywhere

This yoga training program will empower you to 'Teach Yoga Everywhere'. Why confine yourself to a specific yoga studio when you can spread your wings and touch lives throughout the entire community. We will show you how to expand your practice into community centers, the workplace, churches, and athletic programs - anywhere and everywhere.

 

Teach Yoga Sooner

Your instructor will move you into action so that you can begin practicing your new skills and sharing your knowledge as the course progresses. We actively engage our students in developing knowledge, skills and communication techniques that can be practiced immediately. 

 

Yoga Anatomy

We do an intensive study of anatomy, physiology and human energy. You will spend a day in a human anatomy lab or select self study for this requirement. You will learn the benefits of healthy movement patterns, contraindications and the physiolgical effects of the yoga asanas. 

 

The Leader of Your Journey

Our yoga teacher training program is led by Denise Druce, E-RYT 500, C-IAYT, MPH. Denise has dedicated her life to teaching. She has vast and well-rounded experience that centers on the art of teaching and transforming lives.

Before forming Yoga Assets, Denise led Yoga Teacher Training programs at the University of Utah for many years and has integrated yoga into just about every athletic program on that campus. She has mentored yoga teachers and studios around the country and has trained over 800  instructors.

Denise uniquely blends the traditions of yoga with modern interpretations to give you a well-rounded perspective.

    This is real yoga. From the study of anatomy, access to an in-depth cadaver lab, study of yoga sutras and self-enlightenment...the list goes on. In addition to a rich curriculum, Yoga Assets became family. Due to the nature of our study and the amount of time spent together, the small group I trained with grew immensely close and I feel these are friendships that will last years. I would do this 100 times over.

    I highly recommend Yoga Assets. The program is well rounded and covers the history of yoga, pranayama, asana, Sanskrit, anatomy, special populations and more. As a person who has worked in disability inclusion for years the fact that the training focused on making yoga accessible to all bodies was extremely important to me. I also appreciate the connection to other graduates and the network that these graduates create. I have found many opportunities through this network.

    Denise is a wonderful, caring teacher. She has so much knowledge and knows how to deliver it in a way that is easily understood and fun. She is very approachable and always makes herself available to her students. You will not regret choosing Yoga Assets, but be prepared to learn, to cry, and to laugh. You will have an individual experience that you will cherish.

    Yoga Assets was an amazing school to learn the practice of teaching others yoga. They were so thorough in delivering the content as well as making sure each student felt safe, and seen. The tools and support they gave me made me feel confident to go out into the world and support others in their practice of yoga.

    The journey through Yoga Assets YTT was nothing short of magical. From the very first day, it became evident that this was more than just a training; it was a holistic immersion into the world of yoga, mindfulness, and self-discovery. The curriculum was thoughtfully designed, seamlessly blending the rich philosophy of yoga with the practical aspects of teaching. What truly sets Yoga Assets apart is the unparalleled expertise and passion of the instructors. Each session was led by seasoned yogis who not only demonstrated profound knowledge but also radiated a genuine love for the practice. Their guidance went beyond the physical postures; they delved into the spiritual and philosophical dimensions of yoga, providing a comprehensive understanding that has deepened my connection with this ancient tradition. The supportive and nurturing environment fostered within the training space created a sense of community that I hadn't anticipated. The bonds formed with fellow YTs, under the guidance of our incredible mentors Denise and Amy, turned the journey into a shared exploration of self-discovery and growth. The encouragement and camaraderie shared within the group added immeasurable value to the entire experience. The YTT's commitment to personal development and self-care was evident in the well-rounded approach to teaching. I appreciated the emphasis on mindfulness and meditation. The incorporation of anatomy sessions, workshops, and guest lectures further enriched the curriculum, ensuring a comprehensive and well-rounded education. As I reflect on the transformative weeks spent in the Yoga Assets YTT, I am filled with gratitude for the profound impact it has had on my life.

    I loved learning with Denise Druce and he r team of leaders. Everything was professional and very well done. The information and teaching was very helpful in giving us continued desire to want more knowledge from this team and others. I learned so much and still enjoy the contact I have with my many cousins. It is like a family that wants to continually help others succeed in all areas of their lives. I am thankful for the opportunity I had to learn and grow with the group I was with. Thank you Yoga Assets for your continued support.

    YTT at Yoga Assets was an amazing experience. I am forever grateful for my time spent with the people I met during training. Their training dives deep into the inner workings of human beings and yoga philosophy. You will leave this training feeling confident in yourself and ready to share yoga with others. A lot of thought and love is put into this training and I highly recommend this to anyone looking to pursue YTT.
