Starseed Yoga 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training is an intense program designed to dismantle + get to the bare-bone roots of yoga. We firmly believe that the strongest asset any yoga teacher possesses is themselves.  This is why we emphasize personal development, self-study, authenticity, and how you show up in the world as a teacher, despite your struggles.

Our comprehensive program is approved by Yoga Alliance, but it is so much more than that.  In fact, it’s one of the most robust yoga programs available today, attracting students of all levels, from all around the globe.
Starseed Yoga Teacher Trainings are rooted in intuitive, confident, articulate, and empowered yoga teachers.


At the core of the Starseed philosophy is a profound sense of connection, not only to ourselves but also those around us, and the environment we live in.  Before trying to shape + control everything outside of us, we first look within + do the work on our ourselves.

We cannot guarantee enlightenment, but do the work to create a safe container to deconstruct + decolonize yoga as we know it today and create the space to shape what our own practice feels or looks like, and cut to the core, learning to acknowledge why we practice.  We create an accelerated learning environment, where trainees gain the confidence to discover their own soul truth about yoga, their being and their practice.  There’s no memorization, no acting, and no script.  From this emotionally honest place, you find your authentic voice as a yoga teacher, simply learning to share how your practice is the vehicle for turning knowledge into wisdom.


In this first layer of the yoga training, we learn the Yamas and the Niyamas are the first steps on the Eight-Limb Path and why this information is the very foundation of why the ancient practice of yoga works.


In this powerful module, we get intimate with our expansion of life force energy and learn how to use it to expand our consciousness.

At the heart of our program is the richness of self-discovery. You will learn to access the ancient knowledge of the body’s inner mechanics to clearly see your way home to YOU- in a straight up real, true, authentic way.

In other words, you are the architect of your own blueprint.

The easiest way to find yoga is through something we all have- a body.  While it is so much more than just the physical flesh body, we understand how to use the “seen” body to understand the ”unseen” in the yoga practice. We also learn how to sequence a yoga class. In this module, we deconstruct the asana and then piece back together via intelligent sequencing. Starseed Yoga formats are a way to clear stuck energy and create natural vitality.


In this Unit, we explore the beauty of Sanskrit as a root language of the yoga practice. We also delve into our own healing lineages and honor all who came before, all who are here now, and all who are to come.
