200-hour yoga teacher training
at your pace and schedule
$3,900 (or $2500 each with a friend)
No waiting through information you already know, and the ability to dive
as deep as you like into any topic. I'll tailor the course to your interests,
whether that is a dynamic practice or a very restorative one. Set the hours
that suit you, with some in-person sessions if you like.
I focus on simple poses taught with clarity and a deep understanding of healthy biomechanics, as well as an introduction to restorative and yin yoga. This allows the teacher to work with students in a rehabilitative manner, addressing injuries, or dynamically - working towards advanced postures.
We'll work together with foundational skills to complete your training as a Hatha Yoga instructor,
capable of teaching individuals or groups, on or offline.
The training is registered with Yoga Alliance, the live in-studio hours are complimented by asynchronous
home study hours including reading, assignments and video.
If you are interested in developing a regular self-practice appropriate to your needs and desires, and then learn to teach a safe and effective practice, this course is designed to get you there relatively quickly and with confidence.
Students are also welcome to take the training simply to deepen their understanding of yoga practice.
Hours and assignments are roughly divided into these categories:
Asana (posture) practice covering essential postures
Anatomy, postural assessment
Mythology, philosophy, history, ethics, critical thinking
Skill in offering yoga online and private sessions
Introduction to yoga class design and sequencing
100 hours Zoom online, with 100 hours self-study.

About the teacher
I have trained over 1,000 teachers since 2007 in China, Japan and British Columbia. I've enjoyed physical yoga practice and teaching since the 1990s, and owned and operated both a home yoga studio and a larger commercial studio. In 2006 I wrote the course manual “Teaching Hatha Yoga” that is used by many studios as a foundation for their teacher training, and in 2016 wrote "Knead Yoga" - the course manual for private client work. Early in 2017, I completed "Open Source Yoga - Practice and Teaching" - the new manual for the 200hr course, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of offering teacher training.
Steve Mitten, Life Coach
"For anyone who loves yoga, and aspires to take their practice to a whole new level, I could not recommend the teacher training more highly. I don’t know if I will ever teach a yoga class, but I enjoyed every minute of the journey, and the process has already paid huge dividends in my practice and life."
"Dan Clement's 200-hour yoga teacher training was one of the greatest experiences of my life. Dan's passion for teaching yoga and knowledge of the discipline, combined with the broad scope of this course really helped prepare me for entering the world of yoga instruction."
