We take your becoming a yoga teacher seriously and understand that becoming a yoga teacher is a special and important role in our society. We want to give you the best possible experience that we can and that means getting to know you before you register and helping to determine if this is the right training for you. We consider all the factors when deciding whom to accept. Alignment with our vision and a desire to see this world through the lens of love is most important in our decision making. Physical fitness, years of practice, and Instagram fame are the lowest factors in the process. So just be yourself, that's the only person you can be.
This training is for people who are ready to change their lives, take initiative, make it happen, and be of service others. Students with high ethics who are willing to be on time to every class, support their fellow students, do the extra work it takes to make it through the challenge teacher training imposes on their lives. This training is for people who want to gain real time experience teaching in live classes, assisting, observing, and learning. If that sounds like you, then read on and get ready to apply for one of the most transformative experiences of your life!

Why Choose Sin City Yoga?
We believe that Yoga Teacher Training should be an inclusive as possible. Our goal is to teach you a little bit about as many styles and types of yoga, philosophies of yoga, and directions and paths you can take in your yoga career. A 200-hr training is really the foundation and can barely break the surface of this centuries old practice; but we intentionally expose you to multiple aspects of yoga to allow you to find your own focus. Additionally, you will be prepared to teach a solid class prior to graduation.
You'll receive a free pass to practice unlimited yoga during your teacher training program. Some of these classes will be practice, some observation, and some you'll get to teach portions! In lecture class, we will go over commonly used asanas, Sanskrit, and teach you how to sequence. Although our focus is on vinyasa yoga, you will be able to teach Vinyasa, Power Vinyasa, Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Nidra, and Meditation. You'll get to experience even more types like Bhakti Yoga!
You will develop your own style of teaching and find your authentic voice. We'll teach you safe and effective yoga adjustments as well as how to give and receive touch. We will explore together not just the physical side of yoga, but the emotional and spiritual side. You will work on your own personal development so you can learn how to be of service to others.
We cover the Yoga Sutras in depth. You'll be able to learn and discuss from a traditional perspective what a yogi is and how to use yoga as a way of life in our modern world. This background in the Sutras, including discussion of the 8 limbs of yoga, will allow you to have a more comprehensive yoga education so that you can teach your students more than just physical aspects .
Anatomy in yoga is more than just the physical anatomy. During the journey through the Chakras, you will learn through lecture, yoga, and personal experiences. Most graduates say this was their favorite part of the program! Our Physical Anatomy instructor will take you through the physical body, its applications to teaching yoga in a practical way that is approachable, and incorporating biomechanics and functional movement to ensure a safe and sustainable practice.
Subjects Covered During Training
6 modalities of Yoga including:
Vinyasa Yoga, Power Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Yin Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, & Yoga Nidra
Spiritual Anatomy: Chakra System
Physical Anatomy, Functional Movement, & Biomechanics
Yoga Sutras & the History of Yoga
Pranayama & Meditation

Among many more!
Our 4 week intensive yoga course runs Monday-Friday from 8am to 4pm. We know not everyone has a nights and weekends schedule and we wanted to create a training that our tourists could attend! If you are traveling to Las Vegas to take this training, let us know, and we'll make some housing recommendations.
The 11 Week Yoga Course is Tuesdays and Wednesdays 6pm-9pm and Saturdays 10am to 6pm plus 25 classes of your choice off the regular schedule throughout the 11 weeks. This course also includes the weekend retreat, if circumstances allow, which starts on Friday at 6pm and ends on Sunday at 11am. Transportation is not included; however, car pools will be organized.
In our eleven week yoga course only, a yoga retreat if circumstances allow, is included with your tuition! The retreat is mandatory for graduation since coursework is covered during the retreat. You will immerse yourself in yogic lifestyle and bond with friends. We are the only training in the southwest that includes a yoga retreat as part of the 200 Hour Training. The retreat is not included in the 4 week intensive, because, let's be real, it's already like a retreat!
Whether you are ready to sign up now, or you are looking to take training in the future, please take the online survey regarding the style, time of year, and type of course you are interested in.
