The Present is the outcome of all that has existed and been experienced by you up to this very moment.
The Present is your time to design and shape the outcome of what’s to come.

UpDog Yoga’s 200+ hour YTT program, the Present, offers a unique opportunity to learn about Yoga in depth while becoming professionally certified to teach others about its practices and benefits. You will become qualified and equipped not only to plan and instruct physical practice but to truly teach Yoga with confidence and deep understanding.

Our holistic approach encapsulates in depth the multifaceted and hugely diverse industry which Yoga is today. Our training explores all 4 Paths of Yoga

We comprehensively dive into practical anatomy, physical asanas, spiritual and devotional practice and guidance, as well as the esoteric importance behind Yoga’s history, philosophy and mythology.

In this way we ensure our trainees will complete the Present well versed in KARMA, BHAKTI, JNANA, and RAJA Yoga, and are able to provide true Yoga guidance, not just lead a class through a sequence of poses.

We ensure trainees are exposed to and experience yoga from many different angles to provide a greater perspective with emphasis given to exposure to actual practice teaching.

On completion of the program, trainees will be immediately qualified to teach Vinyasa, YIN, and Hatha classes.
