Welcome to Empower ME Yoga Teacher Training Academy. Our Hatha Yoga Certification meets and exceeds the requirements to become a Yoga teacher as previously governed by Yoga Alliance.  Your primary teacher for this transformative experience will be acclaimed yogini, mindfulness teacher, spiritual mentor, and award-winning fitness professional – Marla Ericksen.  This training is appropriate for aspiring teachers as well as dedicated students who are interested in studying for personal empowerment or to deepen their practice and understanding of Yoga.

Our interdisciplinary approach to study and adult learning encourages living the yogic path authentically while developing your understanding and experience of the broader perspective of Yoga over a longer span of time.   The course delivery model ensures that students can integrate the teachings more deeply. Candidates will come to realize the transformative nature of Yoga and develop the skills to share the practice as teacher if they so choose. Many people engage this path for self-development, evolution, and growth.  Many Yoga professionals repeat their foundation certifications with a different teacher or school to reinforce, heighten their experience of Yoga from a different perspective. This course will emphasize the contemplative (meditation), energetic (pranayama) and physical (asana) aspects of Yoga.  While generic Hatha Yoga will be the primary form of Yoga explored, candidates will also have exposure to other forms of Yoga; including but not limited to, Yin, Restorative, Vinyasa flow and Yoga for Fitness.
