Excellent Instruction

"I completed my yoga training at Open Door Yoga this past year, and am so happy I chose Open Door. The instruction was excellent and the curriculum was comprehensive. I highly recommend Open Door if you want to teach, or if you simply want to deepen your personal practice." ​- Mary Perera

I've Put It Into Daily Practice

"I had the privilege of attending Teacher Training at Open Door. It was an awesome experience and I have put into daily practice many many of the things I learned. The teachers are all above any standards that I ever imagined and the classes are fantastic. I always felt in a comfortable space and nurtured while attending. I am grateful for the experience." - Sol Zaragoza

Amazing Teachers

"Everything was exactly the way it should have been. Amazing, encouraging teachers. Wise and knowledgeable with plenty of experience." - Scarlett Duarte

Our mission is to promote diversity within the yoga community. We take pride in teaching people of all races, religions, and gender identities. AND, we teach our teachers how to reach out to all kinds of students of their own. Because yoga is for everyone!

In this 12-week program, you will learn how to teach beginning ashtanga classes. The small class size assures you will receive individual attention and instruction. Our program is geared toward students of all backgrounds and experience levels. Ashtanga yoga is physically demanding, however, so being already fit is a bonus.

The course is held on-line. Class are pre-recorded, and you are supported by one or two live, online meetings each week with Master Teacher Michelle Scarbrough. One-on-one meetings with her are also available, depending on the package you choose.

The next class begins August 30, 2021.

An Added Bonus: Online Flash Cards!

Just like we used in Elementary School! Well, almost.

These flash cards are provided FREE as part of your training. But unlike the traditional paper cards, we use an online platform so you can study the Ashtanga asanas from wherever you are. 

One side of the card contains the Sanskrit name of the asana. The other side has the English name, a guide to pronunciation, and a photo of the pose. 

You can quiz yourself using either side: start with the Sanskrit and see if you know the English, or vice versa.

You can also shuffle the deck to practice in a random order.

Myodo here. While Michelle was busy creating the fabulous content for the Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training, I had a realization - as a Life Coach, I can help you be even more successful! 

Here are 3 short courses, absolutely free! These courses are not available anywhere else on the Open Door website. They are my gift to those of you who undertake this training.
