Yoga Teacher Training Program


Next Program Starts February 4th (full schedule below)

Join us for our 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training led by Owner & Founder, Sam Williams Stilwell, ERYT200, NASM-CPT, ACE, & RYT. Whether you aspire to teach, or simply deepen your practice, you're welcome here! Our Yoga Teacher Training is a self-exploration program that will help guide you on your journey to reach your fullest potential as a teacher and/or yogi. Our Fall Yoga Teacher Training is a four-month program and our Winter Yoga Teacher Training is a six-month program. Both programs are offered virtually or in-person and cover the same content.

Limited spots available. 


At YoBa Studio, Yoga Teacher Training is about more than being trained to teach yoga. We believe in movement with heart and have curated a program to reflect that unique blend of asana and the emotional depth behind the practice. 

With 16 years teaching in the industry, over 700 hours in trainings & workshops, and over 10 led Yoga Teacher Trainings, Sam has combined her expertise in multiple different fitness modalities into one training rooted in traditional vinyasa yoga practice with more depth on how the body is truly designed to move through the world.

Learn how to safely build a sustainable yoga practice for yourself and your community, whether you aspire to teach or just want to deepen your understanding of movement & yoga. Feel your body in a way you’ve never felt before & inspire others to do the same. 

We’ll cover the important foundational elements of yoga, such Yoga Sutras, Chakras, Vedas, and Limbs of Yoga, and we’ll dive deep into anatomy, sequencing, and learning practical tools to take care: meditation, breath, and pose variations for all bodies. Moving beyond mere memorization of poses, you’ll learn practical ways of putting it all together in an accessible & human way. 

Our program is balanced with self-exploration and heart-work that you can put to practice both on & off your mat. With your entire YTT community by your side, experience the opportunity to share from the heart, learn to speak confidently & clearly in front of a group, practice giving & receiving feedback. Practice being fully present & holding space for others, and create opportunities for personal growth in your relationships, career, family, and more!

All experience levels & bodies are welcome here. All you need is an open heart and mind and the permission to start this new, exciting, and life- changing journey.
