The Study of Yoga - Teacher Training at One Tree

Teaching is our passion at One Tree, and we want to help prepare you to bring the same joy and excitement to your individual practice or, post training, to lead students through their own practice. The teacher certification program at One Tree Yoga is a 10-month intensive experience that seeks to grow your understanding of asana, anatomy, philosophy and the subtle body. In the same way that our studio offers a variety of styles, our curriculum will help to provide you with the tools necessary to prepare teachers for an array of class types.

Our program is led by the owners of OTY, Alison King Tigges, ERYT-500 and Gabe Hopp, RYT-500. These wonderfully skilled teachers each have their own area of expertise, but share similar, compatible teaching styles and values, which allows them to work seamlessly as a team. Alison and Gabe have been practicing yoga side-by-side for over 10 years, each teaching for almost 10 years, and co-leading training for 5 years together. They have crafted a curriculum that draws on their many years of study with esteemed yoga teachers around the world: Theresa Murphy, Tias and Surya Little, Noah Maze, Christina Sell, Rocky Heron, Rod Stryker, Dean Sluyter, Amy Matthews, and the Mohans. Needless to say, they know some stuff! They are passionate about yoga in its entirety and it shows in their clear and comprehensive delivery to others.

Don't just take our word for it. We asked recent TT grads about their experience and why they would recommend it to you. Our new teacher April says, "Yoga Teacher Training at One Tree was the best investment I’ve made in myself, and I highly recommend this to anyone who has a passion for yoga! The teacher training content is top notch and truly prepares you for the real thing, but just as great is the inevitable self reflection that takes place. The readings and self study lead you to take a deeper look inside of you...and you get to share the experience with other like-minded awesome people. It is training to be your best self, not just an awesome yoga teacher. It’s fantastic!"

Another recent TT grad, Steph added, "Teacher training helped facilitate a deep dive into the practice of yoga as a whole: meditation, anatomy, philosophy, asana, cueing and sequencing. It not only enriched my personal practice, it helped prepare me to teach and share this practice with others. Truly a life changing experience!"
