yogaview Teacher Training FAQS


How long has yogaview been doing Teacher Training programs?

 We started our program in 2007 and have been offering 2-3 programs annually since then. We usually run a weekend program for those with full time jobs, a weekday program during the school time hours, and a 4 week summer intensive each year.

Is it OK to take the teacher training if I don’t want to teach in the near future?

Definitely. While many of our students take the training to start their journey of teaching yoga right away, many also have no desire to teach. They take the program as a way to go deeper in their practice of yoga and to learn more about how the poses work, sequencing, meditation, pranayama, anatomy and yoga philosophy.


What differentiates yogaview’s program from others?

A key difference at yogaview is we have four highly experienced teacher trainers with decades of experience involved in the program. Another important part of the yogaview training is our focus on meditation. We believe that this is an essential skill that needs to be cultivated for teaching excellence.

The teacher training program at Yogaview is amazing. I can’t say enough about the instructors (Tom, Quinn, Geri, and Claire). They’re extremely knowledgeable and approachable. Each instructor offered something unique to the table so I got a well rounded perspective on yoga. In addition to the fantastic training I received, I also made some great friends and created strong bonds with my fellow teacher trainers. Yogaview is great at fostering a sense of community and family. As soon as you walk in, you are greeted with genuine smiles and it’s a great feeling to feel so welcome. It’s by far my favorite yoga studio in Chicago.

After taking my very first class at yogaview I knew I found something special. I felt like a light went on inside me. I’ve been part of the yogaview community for a number of years now and have developed my personal practice of yoga, made great friends and have had a number of transformative experiences including classes, workshops, retreats and even yoga teacher training. The instructors are experienced and knowledgable but also open-hearted and caring. Classes always feel welcoming. I have experienced so much since I began coming to yogaview, but I never felt rushed or pressure to do anything more than what I wanted to. I think one of the things that makes yogaview so special is that it is a place to find your own yoga practice in a supportive environment of teachers and fellow students. Yogaview has a special place in my heart and I am so grateful to practice there.

I’ve been practicing with yogaview for close to 10 years. I come for the warm, welcoming community. I come for the stellar, dedicated teachers. I come to let go of the daily grind and to reconnect with myself. the results are amazing; I am calmer, I am stronger, and I am a more compassionate being.
