Integral Yoga Teacher Training is a Vinyasa-focused curriculum grounded in the principles and practices of traditional yoga and informed by modern science, our understanding of human movement, and our experiences with mindbodyspirit.
Out of the pieces, we create the whole. Integral Yoga blends past with present, art with science, and form with function. Our approach is designed to help you develop the knowledge and skills necessary to successfully teach Vinyasa Flow classes while providing a strong understanding of other yoga forms. Our program is built on a foundation of study and practice in
- understanding your “why”
- meditation and mindfulness
- breath and bandhas
- functional human movement
- leading, guiding and teaching asana
- ayurvedic health
- the subtle body
- yogic history and philosophy
Building on that foundation, we will also explore
- Considerations for pre- and post-natal participants
- Classic Hatha Yoga
- The Primary Series of Pattabi Jois’ Ashtanga
- Hands-on adjustments
- Gentle and Restorative Yoga
- Using class themes effectively
- Sanskrit and Chanting
- Yoga Nidra
This course is suitable for those wishing to deepen their personal practice, those aspiring to become yoga teachers, and those unsure of their yoga path. Prepare to be inspired, challenged and safely held as we work our way through 11 weeks of semi-immersion Integral Yoga.

Laura Black is a passionate, playful, thoughtful yogini with a deep love for groovy music, dance, and YOGA! E-RYT-200 and Master of Fine Arts in Dance, Laura originally used yoga to help her heal from physical injuries only to discover she had opened pandora’s box on the mat and realized the universe within herSelf. Now her greatest passion is to help people connect to the Divine and explore their microcosmic/macrocosmic Selves on and off the yoga mat. Laura loves sunshine, dancing, live music, hiking, being near large bodies of water, children, animals, and geeking out on all things related to movement, the body/mind connection, and metaphysics.
Valerie’s interest in yoga began in 1994 while studying mind-body interactions during graduate school. Over the years she’s studied several yoga, meditation, and relaxation techniques in pursuit of a better understanding of how mind-body connections affect and enhance health. Always a lover of the outdoors, Valerie loves to surf, rock climb, hike and camp. In 2008 a surfing accident resulted in a severe nerve injury that set her on the journey to her current daily practice. Valerie aspires to inspire her students by offering a guided practice that challenges them to grow at their own pace, without judgment.
