Get ready to connect to your highest yoga teacher potential!

Free Spirit Yoga teacher training program is fun and empowering! The program is taught in sequential order from the very basics, so if you’ve never taught anyone anything you will learn the skills to guide people into their heart through their yoga postures in an hour and half class based in Anusara yoga.

If you are already teaching another style of hatha yoga, you will gain more tools and skills for your teaching. Even if you never want to teach yoga, you will learn tools and communication skills that will serve in your daily life.
The Free Spirit Yoga Teacher Training program is taught as an intensive, broken into six sections: Immersions 1, 2, 3, Teacher Training 1, 2, 3.

  • All six must be completed with Annette to qualify for the YA RYT 200 hour teaching certificate from Free Spirit Yoga. FSY (Annette Garcea) has been an RYT school since 2010.

  • The immersions may be done with any currently licensed Certified Anusara Yoga Teacher, although to qualify for Yoga Alliance, immersions must be done with Annette.
