Our teacher training program is highly interactive, and many modules depend on the consistent and collective energy of the group. For this reason we do not recommend missing any sessions. That said, life happens. Students who miss a session can make it up by completing additional homework assignments related to the missed class topics AND attending a make-up session. Each day is considered a session, and the maximum amount of missed time allowed is 3 sessions. There may be an additional charge for make-up sessions.

As a 42-year old woman who has traveled the world, my expectations going into YTT were low. I expected to learn about breath and postures, but I walked away with so much more. My favorite part of the training was the knowledge I gained about body/life awareness, handling adversity, listening, riding the "waves of life", connecting with others, and the ability to be myself. YTT provided real life instruction on areas and aspects of life that aren't necessarily taught.
This “training” would be more aptly called an experience of a lifetime. Katie and Danny are a dynamic duo that offer a journey that served to transform my physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual layers. They take an interest in each person and create spaciousness for every member of the group to contribute in their own unique way. Their genuine and lighthearted nature makes this experience as much fun as it is enlightening.
I'm a businessman and a weekend workout warrior and came to Yoga after being plagued with injury. I signed up for my 200 hour yoga teacher training with to expand and become better at my practice. The Y6 training not only did that, but helped me improve at work, relationships and everyday life, the experience was extraordinary. The 3 month journey through the exploration of yoga with Y6 really makes you look inside yourself and discover your connection to everything around you. The support from the amazing and talented teaching staff to my fellow students made this a once in a lifetime experience, and I still remain connected to many of them today. I would recommend this experience to anyone who wanted to expand and improve their lives through the power of Yoga.
The Yoga Six Yoga Teacher program is second to none. This program provided me the inspiration, awareness and tools to facilitate my yoga journey on and off the mat. Whether you are looking to become a yoga instructor, taking your yoga practice deeper or simply living a more enhanced, richer life, this program provides the inspiration, awareness and tools to gently guide you on your path.
The Yoga Six Teacher Training program gave me the skills and knowledge to lead well-rounded, safe classes for any level of practitioner; but I learned so much more than proper alignment. From how to meditate to important life skills, everything I learned equip me to be a better human being. Katie Brauer and Danny Arguetty created an experience that empowered me to start living a richer and fuller life on and off the mat.
"My Yoga Six teacher training was a truly unique experience that I'd never trade for anything. I made new friends and created bonds with others that feel like family. Not only does the Yoga Six Training staff offer superior yoga training and in-depth knowledge, but I learned to explore and express my own feelings and was presented with numerous opportunities to dig deeper into my own heart & conscience helping me discover things on the inside that have helped me grow and evolve as a teacher AND a person. Even if teaching yoga is not your overall goal, the yoga teacher training journey is one that you'll never regret. And if you're even remotely thinking about it, I have two words for you....DO IT!"
While virtually new to yoga at the time and not knowing what to expect, I decided to try yoga teacher training with Katie Brauer and Danny Arguetty. I had just finished playing 14 years in the NFL and was ready for a different physical challenge that would also preserve my body. Little did I realize it was so much more than I expected. I came out with a totally different perspective on life and who I am after football. The Yoga Teacher Training I received was one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself. It was challenging yet rewarding and it truly changed my life and who I am today.
Nothing has created more growth for me, in mind, heart, and external life, than YTT. I have methods to handle life now that I will carry with me and utilize forever... I have a profound sense of fulfillment and belonging. And sharing my personal passion with other yogis brings out the best in me. Up until YTT, I had debilitating performance anxiety that interfered with my progress as a musician. Through YTT I found my voice, my inner wisdom, my beauty, my strength, and the unique gifts that I have to share with the world.
