This 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training is based heavily in creativity and unique instruction. It places you and your personality at the forefront of where you will teach from. This training will give you the tools to develop your own personal talents and skills, rather than giving out a cookie cutter recipe of how to teach, bringing you to a place of growth in your yoga journey.


The training is created and led by Brianne Nicole. With a background in Kinesiology, Brianne will share with you her deep knowledge of how the body functions and moves, which will in turn help you to guide physically and energetically effective classes.


In this training, you will not only become certified to teach yoga, but you will also become more YOU.
