WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
WHAT OUR GRADUATES ARE SAYING
Respects History and Culture
Jehan Izhar is an amazing master teacher trainer who respects and incorporates the history, cultures, and modern presentations of yoga into her coursework. She has a passion for the subject that is contagious and captivating. When I asked what I should look for in places to take different kinds of yoga classes during the training, she said, "Everywhere! Go everywhere, and come back and tell me about it." This is possibly the best practice advice I've ever received. The Open Door facility is a beautiful studio on a tree lined street in a historically rich section of my hometown.

Excellent Instruction From Guest Teachers
I completed my 200 hour 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 especially enjoyed the fact that visiting instructors with various specialties and interests were guest instructors, as this gave us a wider understanding of the options available and the similarities and differences between the types of practices and approaches. I highly recommend Open Door if you want to teach, or if you simply want to deepen your personal practice."

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
Everything was exactly the way it should have been. Amazing, encouraging teachers. Wise and knowledgeable with plenty of experience."
- Scarlett Duarte
What was more useful/interesting about this training was the fact that trainees receive both meditation and asana training, so we become more well-rounded teachers. I will use the knowledge I received from this training to improve my personal life, to incorporate it in my non-profit environmental work, and to become a yoga/meditation teacher.

Finding Ease & Steadiness
After years of practicing yoga I finally understood what it means to find ease and steadiness in a particular pose. I also finally accepted that it's not about perfection but about finding my edge without judgment. I really learned how to use my breath and my core strength in every pose and in life. I can use what I've learned in every aspect of my life. Again it's about finding ease and steadiness whether I'm sitting at my work, walking on my two feet, or lying in bed. Every twist and turn in life can be managed better by going to my breath and using my core strength and focusing on my highest self.

Reaching a Different Level
The meditation component is really what set this program apart from other programs. It wasn't just a physical training it was a mental one. It also allowed my practice to reach a different level. -Anne Ku
