Teacher Training

Yoga Alliance 200-Hour Teacher Training Program - Begins April 10, 2021

Transform your Yoga practice, learn how to teach, and explore the possibilities with us!

We’ll start learning over the Zoom platform. As soon as we are able, we’ll gather in the open air in one of our local parks and hopes are high that soon thereafter, we’ll be in Studio again.

To connect with us for questions, send us a message, or text tel: +1 (213) 620-1040 .

Knekoh Frugé, C-IAYT, YTRx and Rob Zabel, MA, E-RYT team up again to offer the most comprehensive Yoga Teacher Training Program in the city. Discover the depth, breadth, and history of this ancient tradition that is Yoga. From anatomy and alignment to Sanskrit and Yoga Sutras (and all points in between), you’ll broaden your Yoga knowledge far beyond the material typically covered in group classes.

Rob Zabel, our resident Sanskrit scholar, has been studying Yoga for most of his life and holds a master’s degree from Loyola Marymount University’s acclaimed Yoga Studies program.

Knekoh Frugé has practiced Yoga for more than 37 years. She is a credentialed Yoga Therapist with the International Association of Yoga Therapy and a Loyola Marymount University alumna as well.

With this program you’ll benefit from over 50 years of combined expertise honed on the mat, in the halls of academia, and in life.

NOTE: Rob has decided to go back to school for his PhD which mean this will be the last Yoga Alliance 200 hr teacher training with Rob for quite some time.

If you are considering the Teacher Training with Rob and Knekoh in their magical partnership, take advantage of this opportunity now before Rob heads out to University in the fall.

Are you ready to turn your passion for Yoga into a career, seeking to enhance your personal practice, or simply eager to connect and grow with like-minded yogis, join us!

The best yoga teaching training in Los Angeles

with the most knowledgable teachers. I learned more than I thought. I know more about yoga philosophy and yoga anatomy than 500 hour teachers I've spoken with. I love Knekoh and Rob!”

The experience and expertise of the administrators of this program is

apparent. Although only a 200-hour program, a student will have much of the core/base needed to begin teaching his/her own yoga classes.”
