"We are all what we repeatedly do.
Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit." --Aristotle
Kristin’s 500 RYT was exactly what I was looking for to strengthen and deepen my yoga teaching. Her program emphasized anatomy, alignment, the art of sequencing, and yoga philosophy. I am now more confident guiding students safely and appropriately in their own practice.
Taking Kristin’s 300 Hour TT is a gift to yourself and to your students.
Kristin will nurture your role as teacher, and you will become more confident sharing yourself and your love of yoga with students. You will learn the art of skillful sequencing to help your students progress safely in their asana practice and leave your classes with a sense of clarity and balance. Kristin will encourage your study of the yoga sutras to deepen your own practice and help you impart the subtle aspects of yoga into your teaching.
Teacher training weekends are fun and thought provoking, thanks to Kristin’s passion and talent for clearly communicating and teaching yoga philosopy, anatomy, and sequencing. I am so glad I participated in HOME Yoga’s 300 Hour TT, and I am grateful to Kristin for enriching my practice and my teaching.
There is an Aristotle quote displayed at the studio and on the TT page that summarizes perfectly Kristin’s approach, and inspires me to do the same: “We are all what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit."
What a truly wonderful program! Kristin’s 300-Hour Teacher Training at Home Yoga has greatly enriched my knowledge and experience of yoga which will serve me as both a teacher and a student.
Kristin created a supportive and rigorous environment that encouraged us to think deeply, participate actively, ask questions and be unafraid to share our experiences. As we covered the many important aspects of teaching - alignment, sequencing, philosophy, anatomy and assisting - we were immediately given opportunities to integrate the knowledge and apply it. Each training weekend was structured to encourage us to work hard (and we did!), yet we left feeling invigorated. It says so much about Kristin’s gift as a teacher that she is able to deliver a detailed, thoughtful training program, while simultaneously creating a supportive and close-knit community.
I will greatly miss our training weekends together, and am so grateful to have been part of this very special program.
Kristin’s 300 RYT program has been nothing short of amazing. She has helped me deepen my study of yoga in so many ways. The highlights of the program include learning detailed alignment principles, subtle counter actions in a pose, the art of intelligent sequencing, and especially the Friday night sutra discussions.
Kristin’s detailed understanding of alignment is really special. She has a wonderful ability to create intelligent sequences which make even challenging poses accessible. Not only have I learned a tremendous amount, but I have had a great time doing it.
I feel deeply grateful for the opportunity to learn in such a wonderful yoga environment.
Kristin Olson’s 300-hour TT program is superior. Kristin’s knowledge of alignment, sequencing, and the sutras is apparent; her lesson plans are relevant, extremely thorough and well thought out. Throughout the program, I have been able to learn how to be a better teacher; I have taken the TT lessons directly to my classes. As a direct result of this TT, I have also been able to redefine what I need and want out of yoga, and how to access it and share it with others. If it isn’t clear yet, I highly recommend Kristin Olson’s TT program!
HOME Yoga's 300 HR YTT was amazing! Kristin is so full of knowledge regarding alignment and asana, the philosophy of yoga and intelligent sequencing. Her passion for all aspects of yoga is apparent in her teaching and as a result it was really fun, easy and interesting to learn from her. I highly recommend this training to anyone looking to sharpen their teaching skills or expand their knowledge of yoga as a whole.
Everything I wanted to get out of this training, I did. This training program will definitely advance and deepen your knowledge. I highly recommend it!
Home Yoga 300-hour Advanced Teacher Training was Excellent. The sequencing, anatomy, injury prevention and yoga sutra's exceeded my expectations.
Be a Student Again. Be inspired Again.

You already know how to teach. You love Yoga and can't get enough of it. Now it's time to take your teaching and practice to the next level with HOME Yoga's 300-hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training and receive your RYT - 500 certification.
Over the course of 12 weekends from Sept. to June, you'll refine and challenge your knowledge of precise alignment, intelligent sequencing, anatomy, injury prevention, hands-on assisting, daily meditation, and ancient yoga philosophy and history, and, of course, teaching.
To deepen your practice as a consummate learner, each Saturday and Sunday will include rigorous asana designed to explore advanced postures as well as three hours of philosophy discussion on Friday nights. In depth posture labs will allow you to assist and adjust students more effectively. In addition, you'll analyze and discuss strategies for commanding the room whether you are teaching beginners, seniors, injured or pregnant students, or even those who distract and challenge the teaching environment.
We have specialists like senior Iyengar yoga teacher Liz Owen offering her expertise on yoga for a healthy lower back and yoga for anxiety and depression, as well as well-renowned Ashtangi Kate O'Donnell coming to discuss the subtle body, ayurveda and chakras. An entire weekend, and then some, is dedicated to anatomy, led by a board certified athletic trainer who understands the intricacies of asana
You'll refine your time management skills, ability to change your sequence on the fly and understanding of the bodies in, and energy of, the room. You'll have the opportunity to observe classes and read the room from a different point of view by assisting live classes, getting hands-on practical experience.
You'll have direct access to Kristin Olson, who teaches several classes a week and has a real pulse on the many obstacles that a teacher faces on a regular basis. It's time to find your own voice, become a leader in your field and have the ability to lead workshops, retreats and specialized yoga classes.
