Why do a Yoga Teacher Training?

A yoga teacher training gives you the time and the community to deepen your practice, develop your voice and your passions, and then if you choose, learn how to skillful lead others in that which inspires you.  We offer both 200 and 300 hr accredited yoga teacher trainings based out of Yoga Soup in Santa Barbara, California.  You can stream or join in person or do a combination of both. Our streaming team is there to bring you into the room as seamlessly as possible, giving you access to the community and an interactive place to interact with the beautiful topics that we cover.  Wherever you are you are welcome to join us as we dive into these extraordinary topics of transformation based in embodiment, the trauma informed practice, non-dual inquiry, and asana.


200-hr Teacher Training

The Yoga of Embodiment

This 200 hr YTT gives any student the basics on how to skillfully practice and teach yoga asana, breathing techniques, and more.  The training focuses on trauma informed practice, turning toward our experiences with curiosity, following the breath in movement, and investigating the mind-body through sacred literature.

300-hr Teacher Training

The Heart of Embodiment

This advanced teacher training is for the individual who has completed a 200 hour YTT and would like to deepen their understanding of the following pillars: 

  • Body: Asana, breath, and movement

  • Mind: Tantra: the sacred texts, subtle body, and non-dual inquiry of this extraordinary system

  • Spirit: Trauma informed yoga through practice, Yoga Nidra, applied physiology, and concentration

  • Heart: The heart is the source of the heartbeat, which is the blueprint.  It expands and contracts.  The breath expands and contracts.  The body expands and contracts.  The universe expands and contracts.  Together, we investigate this truth.



I’ve had the opportunity to learn and practice alongside Cynthia, Jazmin and Dora in their 300 hour teacher training program. I can wholeheartedly say that their teaching has helped move me further along on my own personal spiritual and wellness journey and is preparing me to support others on theirs. They have structured a beautifully complementary and layered series of instructions that share the same philosophical tradition and underpinnings, yet each brings a special voice and lived experience to the overall practice of yoga and meditation as a way to be in one’s body and the world. Though they each refract a different angle of the beautiful prism that is tantric yoga, their slightly different perspectives help reinforce learning styles. Their individual emphases of trauma informed, tantric scripture, precision in posture all serve to weave together a gorgeous blanket within which a student can find healing, comfort and love. Their passion for their craft shines through the intentionality of their programming and I’m thrilled they’re continuing to build this multifaceted yet deeply integrated way. I’ve also witnessed what I’d term a master class in discussion of differences of opinion between them, and the space they each create for advancing their own and their students’ learnings about how to walk the practice of tantric yoga in everyday life beyond the mat.
