My training in Vinyasa & Yin Yoga, Chinese Medicine (as a trained Acupuncturist & Herbalist), Non-Dual Tantra, and Energy Healing modalities have led me to create this innovative & holistic program.

Stefanie Angel, advanced yoga teacher

[Emily has helped me] understanding how the alignment with what I believe, who I am and what I have to offer creates a more balanced and harmonious existence. Her encouragement to go out into the world and share what I've learned has made a huge impact on my life, as well as others.

what they're saying...

How much time will i need outside of the training weekends?

In between to studio class room hours, trainees will have homework and study projects, and will be expected to keep up a daily yoga practice, attend public and livestream classes, and practice teaching.

Will Emily & KAYLA be present throughout the training?

Emily and Kayla will indeed be leading you through the entirety of the training; while guest presenters might join us for a segment or a day or two, they will be present there with you every step of the way on your journey to becoming a certified yoga teacher.

when do I get the required reading list & training manual?

Once enrolled, trainees will receive the reading list and other materials for the training. Teacher Training Manuals will be distributed at the commencement of the training.

Is this a hybrid teacher training?

This training is entirely an in-person training— any online content is there to supplement your learning and will act as some of your homework hours only.

What kind of breathwork are we learning?

You’ll be learning breathwork and pranayama from the yoga tradition, rooted in embodiment and somatic integration. You’ll learn a full scope of breathwork tools, from foundational yogic breathing to Kundalini breathwork, and so much more. This isn’t a holotropic breathwork training— it’s much richer. Upon completion, you’ll be receiving certification as an Embodied Breath™ Breathwork Facilitator Coach. 

How many people will be in the training group?

This is an intimate group yoga teacher training, and we are expecting 12-20 students. You will not be a number in this training— you’ll receive 1:1 attention and support from your lead teachers, Emily Perry and Kayla Copeland.

Where will the training take place?

The yoga teacher training will meet at Pleasure Point Yoga, in Santa Cruz, CA. We will be meeting in either the main studio, or the movement studio (which is located in the same complex near the Chinese Restaurant).

Are there payment plans available?

Why, yes, there are! We’ll connect you to the team and get you sorted on a plan that works for you— just message us at hello to learn more..


Once you've graduated and you've received your certificate, you can register with the Yoga Alliance as a RYT-200— a Registered Yoga Teacher at the 200 hour level. We'll walk you through the registration process.
