Why Power Nectar Yoga?
It’s simple. We understand yoga certifications. Our faculty has over 60 years of combined industry experience and it shows. We proudly offer an exceptional experience every step of the way, are invested in your evolution, and know you’ll love the unparalleled experience. Our certification will open doors for you to achieve great things. We are 9 years strong in the DC area, with 14 successful cohorts in our portfolio. Registered as a yoga school with the Yoga Alliance, our 200-hour Hybrid Vinyasa Flow Yoga Teacher Training program is an integral foundational training. We hold space for the necessary physical, mental, and spiritual transformation required of yoga teachers. We educate, inspire, and empower our yoga teacher trainees to find their unique calling. And we wholeheartedly support trainees to apply their talents with intention after graduation.
Cutting Edge Curriculum
At Power Nectar Yoga, we have refined our teaching curriculum for modern times so you will be adequately prepared for the actual job of teaching yoga in a meaningful manner. You’ll gain practical and inspirational knowledge to make you stand out from the crowd and will be fully immersed in a cutting edge curriculum that will give you all the modern tools to be a first-rate yoga teacher.
Times have changed and we have responded. Our curriculum encompasses a refined mix of lecture and workshops, allowing you to experience top-notch classroom-style learning with loads of practical experience. We engage teacher trainees through in-person workshops, live virtual sessions, and on-demand video recordings. Our teacher training actually exceeds the Yoga Alliance requirements and we specialize in educating adult learners, offering our teacher trainees convenience and flexibility.
We create small, intimate, outstanding experiences. Our teacher training has capped registration and we pride ourselves on a small class size with a 3:1 trainee: faculty ratio. You’ll never get lost in a crowd and will create deep relationships that extend off the mat. Power Nectar Yoga has turned out amazing teachers who are doing amazing things and we wholeheartedly support you through graduation (and beyond!). Our trainees are exclusively trained and well-cared for every step of the way, mirroring our company mission for relationships and exceptional quality. We have a well-designed internship, too, built exclusively for graduates of our program. It will prepare you to, well, be you, as you strive high as a yoga teacher.
