“Ritual In Motion” 200-hr Yoga Instructor Training

House of AUM Yellow Springs

This training begins June 21st & ends October 20th


Ritual In Motion is a program designed for the yogi inspired to understand the deeper elements within the physical movements on their mat. We will unpack the practical components that support and explain the very real metaphysical experiences unleashed through the ritual of motion we express in our Hatha practices. The time we spend together will cover a strong range of study and practice. We will touch on all the major points of study required to be a comprehensively trained new yoga teacher. This program sets the stage for true career development in the field of yoga. Beyond lineage, our program looks forward with the support of ancient wisdom, purposely entwined with the most modern anatomical knowledge.

We begin with the fundamentals and grow in understanding and competence. This program is designed to help the practitioner of yoga learn, in a deep and multifaceted way, the ways in which to live yoga. Inspired by all of the practices of yoga including but not limited to; asana, meditation, pranayama, study of history and philosophy, functional anatomy, self inquiry, ayurveda, the power of crystals, the benefits of essential oils, and so SO much more!

Our training here at House of AUM is eclectic, full, rich and unique. With your investment you will have the opportunity to learn from knowledgeable and diverse teachers, enjoy outdoor excursions and more. We are so proud of the community we have built here at AUM and we invite you to join us in our love of sharing the gift and practice of yoga not only with each other but with those we choose to surround ourselves with.

We will meet for 7 weekends extended over the course of 4+ months, completing 180+ contact hours providing eligibility for the candidates to become registered through Yoga Alliance.

During our time together we will work to gain insights into our truest nature and use our practices to inspire any path we wish to pursue from here. Truly an experience to deepen personal practice while also preparing candidates to become educated and well rounded yoga teachers.

Each day we will enjoy asana practice, meditation, inspired lecture, alternative studies, contact with nature and communal meals. Our participants can expect to close each weekend feeling inspired, energized and educated.
