Our 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training is nationally accredited by Yoga Alliance and has been proven to be one of the most creative and comprehensive in the state of Indiana. We go beyond the minimal national standards, giving our trainees the ability to implement their creativity by sequencing a yoga class they can call their own. Our students not only learn the basics of how to develop safe yoga sequencing, but also learn how to sequence according to one’s nature during different seasons, affecting mood and overall health.

We teach from the lineages of Krishnamucharyia/Vini-Yoga, Iyengar, Anusara & Ashtanga Yoga, which are all Hatha based. Chris Yovanovich, E-RYT 500, serves as Lead Trainer and has been developing and teaching 200- and 300- hour yoga teacher trainings full-time over the past 12 years. This will be her 31st yoga teacher training and is honored to be at Inner Balance in Brownsburg.

You will be supported by several senior teachers throughout the semester. Nancy Trapp, RYT 500 & Meagan Rogers-Enlow, RYT 200 will be teaching throughout the semester along with several guest speakers for workshops. Our staff lovingly directs our students one simple step at a time. It is a journey as unique as the human condition can be. We simply serve as a field guide, respecting where each student is on their path of learning and growing both physically and spiritually. Our training is on a pass/fail basis and is beneficial for those that simply wish to deepen their own practice, or becoming an exceptional yoga teacher.
