Our philosophy

We pride ourselves on offering fully comprehensive yoga teacher trainings that incorporates all aspects of the practice of yoga from Hatha, Astanga and Kundalini, to Vinyasa Flow. We focus on the deeper aspects of the practice; this is NOT just asana. Meditation, Pranayama, Mudra & Mantra are of primary focus as well as Anatomy & Physiology as it pertains to both the physical & energetic body to deepen and fine-tune our student’s personal practice first.

Time and time again we have witnessed our students naturally bring the depth of this knowledge forth when they make the transition to yoga teacher. We aspire to teach our students how to move from a feeling space, anchored in the wisdom of the heart, which for us is what this practice is all about.

Owning a yoga studio is very hard work & even with your heart in the right place, it can lead to burn out fast if you don’t have a strong support system. The right kind of support is exactly what The Other Side of the Mat offers from a team of seasoned yoga professionals. Yoga teacher training programs are intense but immensely rewarding and they are also extremely beneficial for studios. Our intention is to classically train highly educated instructors that will become an asset to not only your studio but the greater yoga community as a whole. The world needs more well trained yoga instructors to carry the torch.
