The URU Yoga & Beyond 200 Hour Yoga Alliance approved Yoga Teacher Training is a peak pose vinyasa yoga teacher training with a strong emphasis on finding your unique authentic voice in life and in teaching. We will delve into all aspects of yoga including philosophy, mantra, bhakti yoga, meditation, asana, karma yoga, anatomy and physiology and most certainly yoga as a lifestyle. We will cultivate a community that studies, practices, laughs, learns, grows, opens and connects.
All trainees will have the opportunity to become proficient at teaching a yoga class that includes mantra, pranayama, a theme, vinyasa flow that leads to a peak pose, meditation and a closing mantra.
Teacher trainees will have many opportunities to teach and be mentored in URU classes and in the training.
In addition, teacher trainees will have the unique opportunity to mentor in aerial classes as an addition to the training with an extra fee that will be paid to the aerial mentor and URU.
The URU Yoga & Beyond Teacher Training will be lead by Rebecca Sathre with guest teachers from URU and around the country. The training will be very broad and vast with a concentrated focus on authenticity in teaching and in life.
The strength of the URU teacher training is that you will receive an abundance of hands-on teaching experience through mentorship. You will be able to teach yoga when you graduate. Our training takes you through personal growth as well as growth in new and old relationships. You will gain a deeper understanding of yourself and you will find your voice as a teacher as well as a human being. You will begin to see where you are naturally drawn as a teacher and you will also stretch that boundary to see what your capabilities are. You will be encouraged to find your authenticity as a teacher as well as a human being. You will be encouraged to engage fully into your teaching and life.
The time commitments are one training weekend month for 8-9 months, 1 field trip day, 2 URU yoga classes a week, 2 practicum taught yoga classes, a team taught graduation class, yoga home study, and a final exam.

Why do we offer more than the required hours in our training?
We offer more hours because in order to really become a yoga teacher, you need more teaching time. We want you to know you can teach yoga when you graduate.

“I feel extremely blessed that I found and completed the teacher training at URU Yoga & Beyond. The co-owner and lead trainer, Rebecca Sathre, is loving, passionate, insightful, knowledgeable, and an incredible mentor. We were exposed to various styles of yoga and techniques by the numerous workshops and events that were offered during the training. In addition, participating in a weekly mentor class was very beneficial in developing and refining our yoga practice. The teacher training process was fun, challenging but rewarding, and an awesome way to connect and bond with others in the yoga community.
