300 Yoga Alliance CYC Mandalas of Flow Teacher Training
We have an AWESOME 300 hour training program that we are rolling out and are really excited to share the news! Offering a line up of incredible & very talented instructors that will guide you through the deeper tributaries of yoga. Our training is ADVANCED and an INTENSIVE that will push you past your present boundaries of your practice, your knowledge and your teaching of yoga. We would love to invite you on this journey with us.
We do offer payment plan options and an early bird special!
Note: We are the only studio on the coast offering a training like this... with established teachers, diverse in backgrounds and deeply rooted in their area of study! There are plenty of 300 Hour Programs to choose from, but not on this side of the coast and at this price.
It is the intention of NALI to bring rich offerings to those who want to dive deeper especially to those on the coast! Saving you from that drive over the hill!
If you are seeking to do your own training or teach in one you must be 500 Hour Yoga Alliance Certified and our program will get you there. This new standard will be in effect starting in 2020!
Please take a moment to read about our guest instructors and make sure you can attend ALL the dates of the training before committing. IF you are ready to be brave and go big, contact us for an application.
NALI (Natalie & Ali): Sahapathins,
Companions on your Journey
NALI will be your guides through this next layer of your journey. Nat & Ali found each other a little over 1.5 years ago and have been creating magic ever since. Natalie brings her years of experience in self-study & meditation as Ali draws from her living practice of energetic vinyasa through mandala sequencing. Together, they offer a balanced union of Lunar and Solar, Yin & Yang. They will push you to dive deep into "satsang" while encouraging you to explore the vast tributaries of your personal Sadhana. Find your edge and take it deeper.
Neil Wadhawan: Bhakti Slayer & Prime Mover of Rhythms
We’re not sure words can explain a class with Neil Wadhawan. Super excited to have his teachings in this training! Welcome our Bhakti Slayer! Neil Wadhawan was exposed to yoga by his father at a very young age. He grew up learning about eastern philosophy, which eventually led him to receive a B.A. in Philosophy. His classes are playful and fluid, with the heart of each class featuring Neil playing a Djembe drum while simultaneously instructing. The Djembe plays the rhythm of the breath called Ujjayi, an ancient yogic breathing technique, which allows the practitioners to breathe and move in sync. Neil has been a teacher in several trainings in San Francisco and all over the world. He continues to share his love for the practice locally and beyond. There is always something new to learn and the only way to continue to grow is to remain a student.
Captain of Advanced Sequencing
Will be creating space for self-study fueled by curiosity and enthusiasm for life, both on and off the mat. She has been leading yoga classes, lifestyle programs and Teacher Training for 20ish years. Monika hopes that you will always learn something during a practice with her. We are honored to have Monika be a big part in this training!
David Platshon: Musical Guest
Born in Washington, DC and began playing funky drums after seeing a band play at my elementary school when he was 11. Moving from Hawaii to Los Angeles in 1976, he was introduced to yoga and practiced with Mari Gayatri Stein. In addition to yoga, his drumming career expanded with recording and touring. In 2012 he was fortunate to meet and tour with Wah! and continue to connect with her now that he is living in HMB.
Kim Combs: Guru of Philosophy
Kim began her Yoginiship in 2003. Dedicated practitioner since 2005. Feel in love with the 'Ashtanga Inspired' method shortly thereafter. Received her 200 hr certification in Ashtanga method with Clayton Horton and Greenpath Yoga in 2010 and 2012, and has been studying the practice under the guide of Devorah Sacks at Mission Ashtanga in S.F. ever since.
MADE (Margaret & Deb): TT Assistants
Margaret and Deb will be your care guides along the way! Making sure all your needs are met during the training! They will also be assisting and conducting posture/practice teaching clinics.
Jenn Gaskin: Master of Anatomy
We are so excited to have the super talented Jenn back. She comes with years of knowledge and understanding of the human body. We promise you learn about things you didn't even know existed or happened while in a pose. As well as a deeper connection with your body. Jenn is a master teacher assisting in Tias Little Trainings.
Xiaohong Weng: Master of The Handstand
Xiaohong (The guy doing the one arm handstand on someone's head!) started training in inversions at the age of 1. Being a circus performer and professional acrobat he offers a perspective on inversions like no other yoga teacher. His conditioning style class will take your inversions to the next level.

In other words, DISCOVER your NICHE! Your plan of action and workshops must be approved by NALI.
