About Living Grace Yoga Institute
Living Grace Yoga Institute offers transformative programs and continuing education for yoga and meditation teachers, those who wish to become teachers, and those interested in personal and spiritual development.
Founded by experienced, passionate yoga teachers, our courses are carefully curated and designed to fulfill an expansive education, as well as personal liberation – and ultimately aim to lead towards a purposeful and joyful life.
Respecting the traditional roots of yoga, our contemporary programs foster a mindful ‘yoga for all’ approach. We encourage you to step into your unique practice as a teacher, and guide you to support others living a healthier life, meeting the demands of modern society with poise and grace.
All yoga programs are certified by the Yoga Alliance.
Yoga means union. It is inherently linked with social justice. We believe that by fostering connections with underrepresented groups, the western yoga landscape can flourish; Living Grace Yoga Institute is committed to facilitating inclusive and accessible yoga.
With this intention, Living Grace Yoga Institute offers scholarship opportunities for BIPOC, LGBTQ community members, and members of marginalized communities. Our space welcomes all bodies, genders, sexualities, religions – and all those respectful of others.
We take full responsibility for minimizing our impact on the world, including the ecological sustainability of all our actions and operations.
