Bhava Yoga Studio

The Immersion was simply wonderful. While I expected the improvements in my physical practice, I had no idea how much my emotional and spiritual understanding would grow. I am amazed at how increased physical strength has translated into increased inner/emotional strength.
- Sandra O.

The teacher training has helped me deepen my studentship and asana practice, expand my knowledge of yoga (physically, mentally, emotionally) and gain the skills to teach the practice that I love, all in a supportive, fun-filled environment.
- Courtney H.

My knee is literally 100% healed!!! I tell the story of how you helped me every time I meet someone about to have knee surgery. I'm eternally grateful for your gift of healing and knowledge.
- Paul O.

Trainings and Mentorship

Bhava Yoga Studio is a Yoga Alliance registered school and offers RYT 200 and 500 hour Teacher Trainings. The RYT 200 program is in two parts and begins first with a Yoga Immersion for deepening the yoga practice, followed by teacher training segments in which the art and science of teaching yoga are practiced and refined. The 300 hour program is available to any RYT 200 graduate who seeks both refinement and depth in their teaching. A mentorship program is offered as a customized program for the beginning or continuing yoga teacher seeking to step more fully into the seat of the teacher.

Teacher Training

Live Your Yoga
A Yoga Alliance RYT 200 Yoga Immersion and Teacher Training Program
Meets for 12 weekends, September 25, 2015 – April 24, 2016

Informational meeting, Sunday August 9, 3:00 – 4:00 pm

Lead Teacher: Bea Doyle, E-RYT 500, CYT
Bhava’s Faculty of Teachers:  Marisol Brito,  Sarah Gorham,  Darcy Cooke, Tim Butler


The RYT 200 Teacher Training Program begins with an immersion into yoga’s philosophy, method and practice, where you will deepen, advance and refine your understanding and practice of yoga. Then learn how to safely and effectively share the gift of yoga with others, and how to guide students in connecting to the beauty of their hearts.

The 200 hour Teacher Training Program at Bhava spans an 8-month period to allow ample time for you to integrate the teachings, so that the training is not separate from your life, but very much a part of it. We find that students retain more and grow more confident as teachers and practitioners with this approach.

You will learn from some of Albuquerque’s most successful and beloved teachers, advance your practice, and take home a skill set for teaching effective and authentic yoga classes.

The program is appropriate for any interested yoga student looking to deepen their experience and understanding of yoga, even if not interested in teaching yoga.
