Hot26 School of Yoga's teacher training program prepares you to teach an all-levels yoga class at graduation. When searching for a teacher training program, the first question you should ask yourself is, "Do I want to take a teacher training program to teach yoga- or to learn more about yoga and then learn to teach on my own?" Why is this question important? Because most yoga teacher training programs do not prepare you to teach a class upon graduation- they give you the knowledge to do so during the training, but then expect you to apply that knowledge on your own after you graduate.
At Hot26, our goal is to create effective, efficient yoga teachers who understand the dynamics of teaching a private, group, or online session. Our training program is geared towards helping you to start a career teaching yoga as soon as you finish the 200 hour level 1 program. Our level 2 program goes deeper into yoga- once you are already teaching so that you can start to apply what you are learning right away. Our program is set up to help you build a solid foundation teaching asana and breathing exercises- while delving deeper into your own practice.
During training you will learn to apply the principles of meditation in your life, while learning more about your own asana practice. We cover the physical and energetic anatomy of a human being- while helping you to understand your mental body and how it affects your day to day living. We also develop an understanding of the postures in a way that you will be able to teach them to any body.

"I took the RYT 200 class in the Spring of 2020, during COVID-19. Emily’s organization and comfort with an online platform made her program seem like it was always an online school. I say this as a compliment because I had access to material, lectures, and Emily without feeling like I was in fact 1,600 miles away from Puyallup, WA. I was mentored, my questions were answered, and I was in part of a new yogi community. In no way did I experience less of an education or a watered-down version of an RYT 200 training. Her professionalism is above par. Emily is passionate about yoga, but her course empowered me to create a lifestyle where yoga fits in and thrives within my own life and practice. I learned that yoga goes beyond the mat at the HOT26 School of Yoga. I am stronger; I have a better sense of my yoga journey and most importantly, I can graciously accept with the challenge of bringing yoga to others with the same care and compassion I learned at Hot26 School of Yoga. I’m walking away with a tool that will continue to shape and grow with me for life; that is invaluable. " -Nicole Gonzalez, Sierra Vista, AZ
"I was met with more than I anticipated with this course. There was so much life changing information given during those several weeks. I felt full when the weekend was over, yet grateful that we had a week to take it all in before the next weekend of class arrived. There was a ton of support between the students and (our trainer) Emily, even with thousands of miles between several of the students in AZ and WI utilizing Zoom. Emily is passionate about the information she’s feeding us, you can’t help but feel recharged from it. Parts of me were opened that I didn’t know existed. This class was a blessing and I look forward to learning more from her. Now to share it with the WORLD! I’m confident whoever wants to take this class, won’t be disappointed." -Teréza Aure, Puyallup, WA
"This training was a life changing experience. Emily is an amazing, inspiring and passionate trainer. The curriculum is outstanding and the way she teaches is life-changing. Emily has inspired me to become the best yoga teacher I can be. Emily has made me want to use my knowledge to inspire others to become passion about yoga to. I am forever greatful. Emily shows you her fire and love to change the world through yoga. If you love yoga this is the place you need to be." -Jessica Jackson, Puyallup, WA
