"I was planning on attending another teacher training when family needs created a change in my plans, I will be forever grateful that this path brought me to Mark Stephens. He is a superb instructor, his ability to share his knowledge and explain yoga philosophy, sequencing, anatomy, history, how-to's, and giving you the true confidence in your ability to work with your students was phenomenal. I am very excited to begin my time as an instructor with all the tools he has provided."
Jennifer Ostrander, Santa Cruz, CA
Workshops are a great way to refine your practice and deepen your knowledge of yoga and how to teach yoga. They enable you to more thoroughly immerse yourself in a variety of topics over the course of an afternoon, weekend, or several weeks. Each workshop is uniquely informative and covers a wide range of topics for both teachers and serious students. Click locations to learn more!

15TH ANNUAL NEW YEARS
YOGA RETREAT AT HARAMARA
Why do we keep going back to Haramara?
Just ask yourself! It seems it’s mostly about one another: meeting new people, opening to new friendships, exploring on and off the mat in keeping with whatever intentions bring you to this magical place.
"I cannot express in words how much I have benefitted from Mark's deep knowledge of all aspects of yoga and his straightforward teaching. The training has profoundly changed me as a student and teacher, and I can warmly recommend it to anyone who is willing to not just complete the hours but to actually grow and develop during their training. For those who have read - and loved - Mark's books on teaching yoga, this course offers the unique opportunity to work with him directly and benefit from much more than what can be written between two book covers. Be prepared to work hard - it's worth every minute of your time!"
