Whether your dream is to teach Yoga or deeply explore your passion, Tula's teacher training program provides a great opportunity to learn about yoga philosophy, meditation, alignment as well as advance & deepen your personal practice. This teacher training is for more than just the aspiring yoga teacher. It is for anyone looking for direction or simply searching for a deeper understanding of yoga. Students become part of a community of like-minded people looking to evolve their own practice and well being.
Since 2013, Tula’s yoga teacher training has remained one of the Tri-State area's leading programs. Tula has certified over 300 students through our 200 Hour Yoga Alliance Program. Many of Tula’s graduates are sharing yoga, meditation and other healing modalities that are helping people all around the world. Through this training, you will learn how to teach and practice many different forms of yoga & meditation, as well as different methods for effective teaching. You will learn how to teach to a wide variety of individuals through the use of variations, how to connect with your students, and how to help your students and yourself gain a deeper sense of internal awareness and ease through the practice of yoga. You will gain confidence in your teaching and practice, and find your own unique voice as a yoga teacher. We realize the amazing qualities of each trainee.

"Tula Yoga definitely has the best training program in Monmouth County. The teachers live the principles of yoga, are knowledgeable and passionate about the subjects they teach and are caring about the students. The personal attention each teacher gave during and after the program is vast. It's impossible to do a Tula training and not grow personally and professionally in doing so. " - Marcie Bromberg
"As soon as I walked into Tula Yoga, I LOVED the vibe. Everyone is so welcoming and non-judgmental. I feel at home when I'm there. Our training took place as the COVID-19 pandemic/shutdown occurred. Our teachers were absolute rock stars who still took the time to train our group via zoom. They could have just postponed our training, but they trucked on just as we did. Tula is amazing!!! " - Caitlin Flanagan

“Jen, your teacher training program is out of this world. It has been such an honor to be a part of this program and to gain all of the confidence and knowledge that I have learned from you.

You always give your all and that without your sincerity and genuine happiness and love for all that you do, we can never be where we are today.”- Stephanie Garafola
