Transform Your Mind, Your Body and Your Life…
with Santosha’s SUP Yoga Teacher Training

Want to enhance your Yoga Teaching skills and have a blast on the board? Our unique SUP Yoga Teacher Training is the course for you!

Training Overview

This SUP Yoga teacher training will offer 20 hours CEU from Yoga Alliance and will demonstrate your competence in handling a class of this nature to your prospective students.

While such a unique practice often intrigues yoga instructors, many feel overwhelmed with the practical considerations of smoothly running a class in the unpredictable outdoor setting. This course explores all these concerns in a warm and supportive environment and leaves students fully equipped and confident to call themselves SUP Yoga Instructors.

With SUP yoga’s growing popularity, a SUP yoga teaching certification is a timely selling point for your yoga business, as well as an opportunity to help spread the enjoyment of a wonderful and novel way to practice yoga.

We invite you to come join us on this two-day course. Be prepared to get wet, be prepared to have fun but most of all be prepared for an experience of a lifetime!

Who Will Benefit from the SUP Yoga Teacher Training?
