Become A RYT 500 Hour Yoga Teacher 

We Empower Our Trainees To Become The Best Teachers On The Planet 







Our  traditional yoga method is primarily inspired and influenced by Ashtanga Yoga (vinyasa) and Iyengar Yoga (alignment).

Our Yoga School is non-dogmatic, with focus on cultivating a long, healthy and happy yoga practice for practitioners of all levels. 

We encourage both alignment, and intelligent creative yoga sequences.

For a better background on our school, see what our students have to say, we invite you to read our many testimonials on Yoga Alliance. 

It is our perspective that yoga is a practice of balance and equanimity.  

Yoga happens both on and off the mat. 

Through our training we create greater awareness for everyday life by cultivating the many tools of yoga. 

Standing on the shoulders of the past, we respect yoga tradition and history and yet we are open to new discoveries and evolution : knowing that the practice of yoga is ever evolving and growing. 

We honor each student where they are at for yoga is a practice of radical acceptance.

LIVING LIFE IN LIGHT BOOK, A Yogi’s Journey by Nathalie Croix is more than a memoir and more than a how-to book. Within the pages, lifelong yogi, healer, and spiritual teacher, author Nathalie Croix guides you on the road to health, love, and enlightenment, helping you to discover your inner child, the essence of who you really are. A culmination of decades of study, travel, meditation, and teaching, Living Life in Light offers practical and actionable steps so you can begin practicing yoga on and off the mat and living your life in light today. Croix presents a host of healing techniques, concepts, and tools that assisted her in her own journey and her day-to-day walk in life. A teacher of love, Croix’s practices will transform your body, mind, and spirit and your relationship to the world, life as it is, and others you come in contact with each day.

"Yoga is a powerful practice, which is here to inform and serve us both on and off the mat. Each student is unique. I encourage my students to approach their practice with inquiry each day and radical acceptance." - Nathalie Croix
