course overview

Deciding on a yoga teacher training is a big commitment - and it is important that you choose a program that feels like a good fit. Below is a little bit more information about us. Don't hesitate to reach out with any questions you have about our offerings!


Our 200-hour yoga teacher training curriculum is broken up into two parts — an online module and an in-person module. Our online component includes lecture-style content that you’ll want to revisit again and again after you start teaching, and you’ll have lifetime access to this material to return to. This module is all about foundations: learning about the practices, anatomy, yoga history basics + practice hours at your own pace inside the Kula. Our in-person module is all about practice, teaching methodology and practice teaching. We’ll deep-dive into cueing, creating sequences, building classes, practice teaching to each other, hands-on anatomy labs mapping out the human body + so much more. Our curriculum is Yoga Alliance certified.


Our trainings are in the style of Vinyasa Yoga, which will remain our primary focus throughout training. Our Vinyasa practices are flowy, creatively sequenced, playful + strong. We incorporate options to explore arm balances and inversions (though they're always optional).

While our trainings primarily focus on Vinyasa Flow, we also incorporate bits of mobility, slow-flow, and yin + restorative elements for you to integrate into your teaching and practice if you choose to. We'll explore both the physicality of the practice through studying anatomy, as well as more energetic explorations like holding the space + reading the room.  

hybrid learning

Our trainings are a hybrid online + in-person split. Our online material is hosted inside of an online platform which you can access from desktop or an App on your phone, and will connect you to our community of other trainees and facilitators. The online content is a mixture of lecture material, reading and videos which we expect you'll want to re-visit over time. It is completely self-paced. Our in-person modules are packed full with practice time, Q+As, hands-on material and labs and more.

our teachers

Nicole Wild is our main facilitator, and she has been teaching yoga since 2015. She has extensively studied with various teachers across schools of yoga including Embodied Flow, Awakening Yoga Academy and more. She has studied anatomy in cadaver labs, meditation with Buddhist teachers, breathwork, somatic movement therapy, Thai massage + more. Alongside Nicole, some of our trainings include bits of material from guest teachers who offer expertise in their specific industries.

If you haven't yet practiced with Nicole, take a few of her classes on YouTube or inside The Kula to get a feel for her teaching style!

course overview

The methods module is all about the 'how' + helping you take all of your knowledge + experience of the practice and share it with others in ways that are tangible, efficient, and unique to you. It is about cultivating your own unique teaching style while also sharing the ancient wisdoms of the practice and its modern twists. This module focuses on creative sequencing, fine-tuning your cueing, practice teaching, hands-on assists, the energetics of holding the space and reading the room, and giving + receiving feedback on your teaching. We approach it all through the lens of our 3 I's: how can you teach in ways that are intentional, intelligent and intuitive? We hope you leave this module feeling more confident in your teaching, aware of areas that you can grow into, and connected to a community of people ready to support you in that journey!

40-hour Training Module: The Body

I’ll never forget standing in a cadaver lab in a week-long dissection studying the human body, and hearing Gil Hedley say “People want to go to space, but they don’t even know what’s happening under their own skin.” Your body is how you experience the world. It is how you experience relationship with everything around you. It is how you have the capacity to see the sunrise or hear music or feel someone’s touch.

Svadhyaya is the study of the self + the study of the texts, and that is the work of this module. We’ll take a long, hard look at ourselves. We’ll have long, deep conversations with each other. We’ll read ancient texts as well as modern ones. We’ll self-reflect, a lot. And we’ll have practices that help to guide us toward these places. This module is one of cultivating a deeper conversation with your gut, your inner-wisdom and knowing.
