Krista"I was brought to this training because it was time to become certified as a yoga instructor.  In my 21 years in the fitness industry, I have taught many yoga classes without proper knowledge and understanding. I know it is simple and easy to follow and no longer am I frustrated.  I am able to relate more with my classes now and share great yoga.  Michelle is an excellent instructor." (featured center)

This intensive Yoga Teacher Training Course is perfect for anyone interested in deepening their yoga practice, or wanting to become a certified yoga instructor anywhere in the world. This very exciting and fun filled Yoga Intensive course is geared for both experienced yoga students as well as those who have 6 months regular yoga practice.

There are several similarities between the Intensive Yoga Alliance 200-Hour Yoga course (15-day immersion course) and our 3-month Yoga Alliance 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training.  Both courses will offer the same quality of education.  Both trainings will give you the foundation in Vinyasa Yoga to teach both beginners and advanced students as well as to be confident and ready to teach in any location from gyms, to yoga studios and corporations everywhere.

The Clayton Yoga 15 Day Intensive Teacher Training Course is the best choice for you if:

  • Your schedule permits you to take an intensive 15 day compact training.
  • You have lots of yoga experience or a big passion to deepen your yoga experience.
  • A willingness to study and practice at home prior to day one.
  • Live farther away and plan on staying in St. Louis during the training. (We often have yoga instructors more than happy to have you stay with them)
  • Thrive in an immersion experience and enjoy learning how to put the tools together from Day One.

DSC_9833Both the 15-day Immersion course and the 3-month Teacher Training course will offer Iyengar anatomy and alignment as well as safe and challenging yoga sequences for every specialty.  Other key topics include but are not limited to:

  • Yoga Breathing
  • Restorative Yoga
  • Yin Yoga
  • Ashtanga Yoga
  • Sanskrit
  • Adjustments and Modifications
  • Vinyasa Yoga
  • Integrating Yoga in our everyday life



We have great news to share!  This summer, we will be presenting a very special Summer Yoga Teacher Training Immersion Course.  This yoga intensive gives you the opportunity to teach yoga all level yoga students in a variety of settings including gyms, yoga studios, and corporations.  In this course, you will learn how to deepen your yoga practice, stay inspired throughout 2016, and create the daily time needed to take care of yourself.

In the 15 Day Intensive Yoga Course, we require all students in advance:

*To learn the complete sequence for the Sun A and Sun B
*Know very well the sanskrit for Sun A and Sun B
*Complete the Passionate Why Essay
*Finish the 10 Key Preparation Steps found in this blogpost here:
*Have a printed copy of the full Clayton Yoga Teacher Manual bound and ready. Bring with you Day One!

The following material is required for purchase in order to review in advance of day one:

  • Yin Yoga by Paul Grilley  (DVD)
  • Anatomy of Yoga by Paul Grilley  (DVD)
  • Ashtanga Yoga by David Swenson (Book)

The yoga teacher training course begins the day you sign up, with take home preparation “OM” work and access to our beautiful private yoga teacher training site, located at  Before the start of every yoga course, whether 15 day intensive or 3 month, in order to ensure a great experience for each and every student, it is helpful to follow these guidelines:

1 – Each student – before the first day of training – must purchase and watch and cover all required material including the Anatomy of Yoga DVD by Paul Grilley.

2 – It is recommended that students also be familiar with the standing primary Ashtanga Yoga Sequence before day one. You will be asked to demonstrate your proficiency throughout the course, therefore it is in the best interest of everyone that you get to know the standing yoga postures in advance of day one.

3 – Learn the sanskrit term for each posture as learning the names of the poses helps strengthen the vibration of higher energy and increases your confidence when practicing and teaching these postures. An audio sequence file will be provided giving you lots of support and fun with this one!

To better help each student achieve their goals, the Intensive Yoga Training and the 3 Month Yoga Teacher Training will include two wonderful and supportive yoga presentations (one being twenty minutes and the second being 60 minutes) offered by every student in the course.
The Intensive Course will be fun and dynamic. We walk to local restaurants on the weekends and enjoy attending local corporate yoga on-site wellness classes.  In many ways, the intensive course makes it easier to immerse oneself, focus and absorb all the wonderful lessons of yoga.
