The Arkansas Yoga Center has been training and certifying teachers in Northwest Arkansas since 1998.  Our program provides a strong foundation in the basic principles of Hatha yoga.  In addition to traditional yoga poses and VariYoga sequences, the immersion weekends include yoga therapy (treatments for ADHD, depression, MS, anxiety, loss, PTSD), information on alignment, anatomy and physiology as it applies to yoga, an introduction to yoga philosophy and history, meditation and pranayama (breathing techniques).

Andrea Fournet has certified over 500 – 200 hour level teachers and over 100 advanced 500 hour level teachers.  She has been training yoga teachers for over 20 years enabling them to teach in a way that is safe, accessible, and sustainable.

The confidence, technique, and knowledge you will gain from this all-inclusive training will deepen your understanding and appreciation for your own yoga practice and enable you to become an educated instructor.   Upon successful completion of the program, which includes practicum sessions and a written test, your certification qualifies you to register with the Yoga Alliance at the 200 hour RYT level.
